We recently conducted workshops on "Yoga for Bikers" at the Eurobike Trade Show

The objective of these workshops was to highlight the importance of Yoga as

– a pre training tool for conditioning

– increasing effectiveness of training and improving performance on the bike (athletes; hobbyists), and,

– help in prevention of injuries & recovery from injuries

Through practice of certain yoga asanas (postures) we can achieve long term benefits of musco-skeletal movement that balances strength & flexibility. Besides that, focussing on breath regulation & benefits that can be directly transferred from our Yoga practice to Biking.

See this short video about it on Diaphragmatic breathing from riders in Tour de France https://vimeo.com/208110099

What we did at the event:

  • Short presentation of the physiology of bikers and impact on body 
  • Learn about & practice of asanas (postures) where bikers can benefit 
  • Learn about & practice certain yogic breathing techniques helpful for bikers 
  • Have fun sharing ideas in a biking community

The project was a part of the Eurobike Academy program on 03 and 04 Sep 2016
