with Dustin McCallister
The practice of yoga has much to offer today’s athletes. In this special class, we will explore some of the many benefits it can offer cyclists.
The repetitive movements and bent-over posture of cycling can prove problematic if gone unaddressed, and can end up making an otherwise-healthy activity deleterious to cyclists’ bodies. This class will offer accessible techniques to address areas of the body that need stretching and/or strengthening for continued healthy cycling. We will also examine ways that yoga can train awareness of the body that can improve cycling technique and safety, specifically for the lower back and knees.
Whether you are a competitive athlete training for a race, an every-day bike commuter, or a casual pleasure rider, the practice of yoga can help improve your cycling and help your body feel great!
Dustin came to yoga after more than a decade of study of Chinese martial arts. Originally attracted to the raw athleticism of the practice, Dustin found yoga to be profoundly transformational. Dustin completed a 200 hour teacher training in San Diego with Nikole Fortier at Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga. Shortly after graduating, Dustin moved to the Bay area, and has been teaching since. He continues to study primarily with certified Iyengar and Anusara-inspired teachers, and the Iyengar lineage hugely informs his teaching.
