At the most basic level, cycling is a sport of balance—the balance of two thin tires that lean in impossible angles to the earth. The irony is that the life and physiology of a cyclist are a perfect example of IMbalance. Through one-dimensional, repetitive movement certain muscle groups are strengthened while others are left untouched. The true integrated power of the body is untapped and the cyclist is vulnerable to injury. Adding yoga to your training regimen will help you to:

- Strengthen unused muscle groups to create balance and greater efficiency
- Improve your physical strength and balance to reduce the risk of both overuse and traumatic injury
- Enjoy faster recovery
- Increase proprioception and bodily awareness
- Place weight bearing strains on the musculoskeletal system to reduce the risk of osteoporosis
-Learn to use breath efficiently
