Athletes – cyclists and triathletes in particular – who spend long hours on their bikes have unique needs when it comes to flexibility resulting from their position on the bike and high repetitive movement. Whether you ride for fun, fitness or competition, the position of a cyclist on a bicycle can lead to tight, sore muscles, discomfort on the bike and loss of pedaling efficiency.
This class targets these cycling specific muscle groups and some of the imbalances that can be caused from riding. Specifically we focus on the lower back region, hips, IT bands, psoas and the quadriceps in the lower body and shoulders and neck in the upper with the goal of attaining better muscle balance and range of motion. We will also explore breathing techniques that can engage your parasypathetic nervous system – allowing you to better control breathing and heart rate in a race situation, sharpen focus or just help you manage stress in your day to day life.
In addition to cyclists, this class is especially valuable for anybody who spends large amounts of time working on computers or staring at hand held devices. The forward head/neck position that is so common in cyclists also impacts people who spend long hours at the desks. If you are experiencing this type of discomfort this class is for you!
