Full Description

This will be the second time the Yoga for Cyclists Workshop will be run, after the positive feedback from the October 25th event.
The yoga workshop is for all levels including beginners, to introduce the benefits of yoga. Includes learning self massage techniques and yoga postures that will specifically correct postural imbalances that cyclists are prone to.

This time the workshop will be held in 2 parts, so you can register for both sessions or as a single session.
The first class is from 3-4pm and will be focused on restorative yoga (using props such as bolsters and straps) with long, slow gravity assisted postures. We will also learn self massage techniques from Thai and Japanese massage and using tennis balls for trigger point massage. We will also learn some breathing techniques and close with a refreshing "legs up the wall" posture, a perfect way to drain lactic acid out of the legs.
The second class will run from 4:10pm to 5:10pm. This will be a lead vinyasa flow class to link breath to movement and strengthen the body, including yoga postures to specifically release the hip flexors and strengthen the back extensor muscles. The class will close with a guided meditation and yoga sleep.
Investment is $20 per class. Concession card holders and students that attended the first workshop are welcome to attend for $18 per class (please contact me for the discount code to use at checkout). The workshops will be similar to the original one held in September with some small tweaks and variations to yoga postures and massage body areas.
Prices include equipment hire fee (bolster, strap, block and mat if you require).
Comprehensive handouts will be given to guests that participate in the entire workshop day.
