Yoga DVD Launch – Cycling Specific

Sharing the benefits of yoga with other cyclists is why I became a yoga instructor. Riders kept asking me for a video, and now I can deliver! Yoga for Cyclists on DVD & Download. Why do cyclists need yoga: sore backs, tight hips, stiff necks, weak wrists, rounded shoulders, weak core, poor posture…oh man, the list [...]

My Experience Meditating

For over five years, six days a week, at least twenty minutes a day, I have meditated. That’s a hell of a long time to be doing nothing, so from all that doing nothing, the purpose of this blog post is to articulate my learnings. Tricky, because it’d be all too easy for me to [...]

Christmas Yoga Playlist & Presence

I brought the simple teaching of presents vs presence in to my yoga class last night. Everyone can give presence, but rather than going to the store to buy it, you have to cultivate it through practice. Yoga is one way. You can also receive presence from another, but it requires you to leave the [...]

Mongolia Bike (& Yoga) Challenge

The Mongolia Bike Challenge was an 11-day stage race where riders pedal 1400km off road with 14,000 meters elevation gain. This distance took us into the remote edges of the Mongolian landscape—however this exploration pales in comparison to the edges participants travel within their body, mind, and Spirit.   My job here is [...]

Breathing Techniques for Sport

The simplest skill I teach at Ride & Reach workshops is breathing. Seems obvious right, of course, breathing, you know how to do that, lets move on…but what is no-so-simple is making it a conscious breath, that takes practice, and that requires technique. Additionally, it is the type of situation you are in that will [...]

Cross Training with a Twist

Gone are the days where all I did to train was ride my bike. At a certain stage in my career my body asked for more, thus my yoga journey began, that was nine years ago. But yoga isn’t necessarily enough either, especially for trials riding, and doing so much yoga can also require cross [...]
