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.
