Diane Vilarem – Yoga Instructor & Cyclist
As cyclists, we’re always looking for new ways to build our strength, speed and endurance. It’s natural – after all, we’re athletes in the main. Many cyclists will have stretching regimes after a ride, and the really switched on riders will build stretching sessions into their fitness planning. Have you ever thought about Yoga for cyclists though – and if not, why not. Like stretching, Yoga has so much to offer cyclists in terms of reducing soreness and aching muscles after a ride, and it can also help with mental relaxation too – which is why we think that cycling and yoga go together like… well, like cyclists and coffee 😉
Time to talk yoga and cycling then, and to open up your body and mind and the benefits for cyclists doing yoga, as we begin our journey into a better well-being together. First of all and importantly, yoga helps your movement and breathing, opening up access to the tools that you’ve had lying dormant which will allow you to take control of your breathing and to be better able to control your heart rate – meaning better and more stable fitness performance. It will also keep your muscles and ligaments more supple and reduce the likelihood of injury, meaning more time riding – that got you interested didn’t it! Add to this the mental well-being and increased mindfulness, then you start to wonder ‘why haven’t I tried yoga before!’ Don’t worry, we’ve come to your physical and mental health rescue, as we explore the benefits of yoga for cyclists – say hi to Diane, our Yoga Instructor and all around cool and kinda chic cyclist lady from the south of France.
Diane is here to get you into a yoga state of mind as a cyclist and to help you to help yourself into a better lifestyle – with cycling and yoga at it’s heart: time to get flexing 😉
When it doubt, pedal it out! 😉
