As promised, the CCC and Include Yoga are pleased to present Yoga for Cyclists, a four-evening introductory program of yoga specifically designed for cyclists and expertly taught by Ce Boehme of Include Yoga.
Each of the first three sessions will focus on problem-areas for many cyclists; the final session will be a well-deserved dialing down of the intensity, i.e., a foray into the blissfully relaxing and gratifyingly untaxing world of Restorative Yoga.
This offering is available only as a set: you must pay in advance for all four sessions. As you’ll see, the price is (to say the least) reasonable, and I know from experience that the benefit will be considerable.
Again: this is a beginner class. No experience is necessary, although no doubt folks who have taken yoga classes in the past will reap ample benefit as well.
When: May 3, 10, 17, 24
Class Times: Mondays, 7:00–8:00 PM
Location: 2105 Azalea, Denton TX 76205
Series Cost: $40.00 (Four Sessions)
5/3 Shoulders & Back / Breath
5/10 Hamstrings / Flexibility
5/17 Core & Cardio / Focus
5/24 Sun Salutation / Gentle & Restorative

Make sure you set your alarm clock before drifting off to sleep on Friday night. Ride start times for the Saturday and Sunday group rides will now depart at 7:30am beginning on April 10th. As we move into the heat of summer the group ride start times will be adjusted accordingly. Last Saturday we had almost 60 cyclists out for our group rides and hope to see even more out to enjoy the terrific weather.

Old- and mid-timers in the CCC will remember the successful Yoga for Cyclists program we ran a few years back. The best thing about these classes, in my opinion, is that they were taught by my sister, a yoga-teacher and studio owner. The most frustrating thing about these classes, in my opinion, is that they involved bringing in my sister from Colorado, meaning that we couldn’t offer a series of consecutive classes, each building on the other. Also, scrambling for a facility proved taxing.
I’d love to be able to say that I was bringing Faith back to teach a month’s work of classes. But, alas, she seems to prefer Colorado to Texas (go figure!). But I DO have an exciting announcement nonetheless: the CCC will offer a four-week program of Yoga for Cyclists, beginning Monday, 5/3 (7:00) and running for four consecutive weeks, at Incline Yoga in Denton. Ce (pronounced “See,” or, if you prefer, “Sea”), the teacher, is magnificent. Each class will target a problem area for cyclists (most dramatically, hamstrings, which for most cyclists are about as flexible as rebar).
The cost for the WHOLE SERIES will be $40.00–series commitments only (i.e., no drop-ins or partial buy-ins). The minimum number of participants will be four (three plus me); the maximum will be ten. Spouses/partners are welcome. A check for $40 holds your spot.
The teacher is even now preparing a flyer, which I hope to post in the next few days. I’ll open up a sign-up thread at that time, too.
My opinion: yoga is the BEST form of cross-training for cyclists.
