Yoga1Cyclists practice yoga to alleviate muscle tightness from enduring long hours in the saddle. In cycling, the quadriceps, hamstrings, and hips never rest.

As a result, riders often have overdeveloped quadriceps and tight hamstrings, which can pull the hips out of alignment.

Also, a cyclist’s spine is constantly flexed forward. If proper form isn’t maintained, it can result in muscle pain and strain in the back and shoulders. Yoga helps ease the tightness, creating core strength, and aligning the spine.

The attention to breath and mind-body connection in yoga can be employed by the cyclist while riding to maintain mental clarity and calmness. A yoga practice focused on flexibility, core strength and balance can be a perfect cross-training workout for any cyclist.
