Full Description

This open level workshop (some experience of yoga preferable but not
essential) will aim to release the habitual discomfort that can
accumulate around the shoulders and neck. As cyclists, our bodies are
often bent forwards and/ or hunched over handlebars. The effects of
this are all-too-familiar - the rounding spine, hunching shoulders,
limited lung expansion and the ever tightening back muscles that
attempt to maintain increasingly poor alignment. We will be looking at
the postures (chest-openers in particular) that counteract this
downward plunge. In doing so, we will aim to:

• Ease/ eliminate neck and shoulder pain
• increase the range of movement in the cervical and thoracic spine
• create more space for effective heart and lung function

…bringing a sense of strength, lift and lightness to the upper body
whilst cycling!
