Stretching and Yoga
Stretching is one of the most important elements for riding and injury prevention. Riding alone will add many imbalances to the body. This affects the body’s ability to be at its optimum in strength, balance and efficiency. The body is balanced by stretching the tight muscles and strengthening the weak ones. When limber, your body will work to its true potential in strength, stability, balance, coordination and efficiency. These are all important factors in order to ride or race at your highest potential.
Yoga is an amazing way to stretch out and get a little workout at the same time. We have invited Katy Katzmann, owner of Bikram Yoga in Temecula, California to demonstrate Yoga movements for you. She teaches beginning movements that you can do! We want to ease all of our athletes into Yoga. Once you realize the benefits you will be hooked. The truly dedicated athletes are the ones that will take advantage of Yoga and have an edge over their competition!
