new recovery yoga sessions available now!
If you want to get faster, sometimes you have to slow down. Recovery is where the real gains are made. It doesn't matter if you smash every workout, if you don't get proper rest and recovery, you won't improve.
We worked with our yoga partner, Abi Carver, to create 5 new recovery session to help you avoid injury, reduce stress, and consolidate all of those gains you make on the bike.
The sessions combine gentle joint mobilization and static stretching through a progression of poses suitable for everyone from the beginner practitioner to the seasoned yogi. All of them are 15 minutes or less, making them easy to incorporate into even the busiest schedule.
Foot and Ankle Recovery
In this Beginner sequence, we improve mobility in the feet and ankles, open up the hips and stretch the feet, ankles, calves and hamstrings. You can practice this routine at any time of the day.
Hip Flexor and Groin Recovery
In this Beginner sequence, we release the hip flexors and groin and stretch the hamstrings and calves. It's a great one to do after a workout or in the evening to prevent and alleviate lower back pain.
Lower Back Recovery
In this Beginner sequence, we release tension in the hips—the groin, glutes, piriformis, TFL and external hip rotators, stretch the calves and hamstrings and re-align the pelvis. It's a great one to practice in the morning or the evening to prevent and alleviate lower back pain.
In this Beginner sequence, we improve thoracic and shoulder mobility, open up the chest and stretch the lats, shoulders, triceps, calves and hamstrings to improve posture, facilitate better breathing and help to alleviate upper back, interscapular and neck pain. You can practice it in the morning or the evening.
Neck and Upper Back Recovery
In this Beginner sequence, we improve mobility in the neck, shoulders, upper and mid back, open up the chest and shoulders and relieve tension at the lower back to help alleviate neck, shoulder and interscapular pain. You can practice it in the morning or the evening.
