New workshop program for cyclists and/or runners 

Cycling and running are very intense activities for the body. Repeating the same movement over and over again creates tensions and stiffness, which can lead to bad posture and chronic pain (or even injury) in different parts of the body.

In this program, divided across 3 separate workshops, we will spend time trying to understand what can go wrong and why. We will see how we can use Yoga to help, with some specific poses adapted to the needs of runners and cyclists. By testing your range of movement, exploring and understanding your body, you will be able to target your own needs and set up you own yoga sequence.

Each workshop can be attended individually. However, for a better understanding and efficiency, we would recommend participating in all three. Each workshop will include a warm-up for the whole body (vinyasa flow style) and a relaxation at the end.

The first workshop will be focused on understanding why and how yoga can help runners and cyclists in both their sport and daily life. We will undergo a range of movement tests to target your specific needs. We will pay more attention to those “forgotten” parts of the body: the upper body part, especially the back and stability core.

After a quick review of our previous work, the second workshop will focus on the anterior chain of the body (psoas, hip flexors, quads, etc.) and the groin.

The third workshop will focus on the posterior chain of the body (hamstrings, abductors, gluteus, etc.). You will finish the program by designing your own Yoga sequence, which you could include in your training program.
