This annual workshop was developed for training and rehabbing professional cyclists, through a series of user-friendly and highly practical sets of pre and post-ride hatha yoga practices. Cycling, while it keeps enthusiasts fit and vibrant, also makes demands that over time or through injury can take a toll. The course includes pre-ride exercises and breathing techniques, a short ride, post-ride practices, the latest tips on staying hydrated, and lab time for athletes to work on their particular injuries or challenges. No previous experience in yoga or cycling is required. Participants are responsible for bringing their own cycling gear and ride is weather dependent. Bikes will be held in a secured area during workshop.
This workshop is equally suited for runners.
“I really enjoy your programs. I’m a survivor of a traumatic spine injury with 8 spinal fusions under my belt so far and was told that I would never ride again. I have proved them wrong. I’m doing 500 miles a week, tough miles and I think your programs help me greatly.”
Douglas McFarland — professional cyclists
“I train exclusively for long distance endurance events and found significant benefits from the Pre Ride and Post ride techniques in the Wheel of Yoga workshop. It’s easy to learn, did not over strain my body, and helped me recover from long days of running, cycling and swimming. This DVD and workshop is a must for endurance athletes. I highly recommend adding it to your training program.”

“David Moreno has created a visually engaging practice with clear, understandable instructions for the cyclist, at any level of experience with yoga. I strongly endorse his insightful use of dynamic movements to prepare you for a long ride. These sequences are a masterful improvisation on classic yoga for the modern cyclist.”
Dr Baxter Bell Yoga Journal contributor/Yoga Instructor/Cyclist
“David Moreno has developed the art of pacing and economy of postural movements so that rhythm and grace pervade the practice. Not coincidentally, this is also the essence of effective cycling – if one is well prepared physically, an overarching aim of Wheel of Yoga for Cyclists…Engaging, simple, yet broad in scope…an affirmation that our practice transcends the mat.”
