Yoga for Cyclists

Sunday, April 10 by silvia

Yoga stretch for cyclistsMay is National Bike Month, and start it with a deep stretch: Nancy Sheehan, a cyclist and yoga instructor, will be teaching two free yoga classes aimed at cyclists at the Cranbury library, 23 N. Main St. in Cranbury, on May 5 and June 2.

Yoga can build a cyclist’s strength and endurance and introduce flexibility to chronically tight muscles.

Classes begin at 7 p.m. and will end at 8:30 p.m. The WWBPA will be there both evenings. We’ll talk about skills and etiquette for streets and trails,? including the do’s and don’ts that promote peaceful coexistence with other users, on May 5 and fun places to ride, including some cool events, on June 2. But most of the evening will be devoted to stretching, so dress appropriately. Bring a yoga mat if you have one.

No pre-registration is necessary.

Not sure what to expect? Here’s a video we found that shows some stretching techniques for cyclists.
