with Kathleen Ellis
Back pain? Tight hamstrings? Hunched shoulders? Scrunched calves? This workshop will provide a set of tools for use by the urban cyclist to help alleviate these and other common physical complaints. We'll also practice breathwork and meditation techniques that can be useful during and after a ride, or in the wake of trouble on the road.
This workshop is appropriate for cyclists with no prior yoga experience, or for cyclists who've done yoga and want to integrate their understanding of asana fundamentals from the cyclist's point-of-view. Plan for a gentle 1hr 40 min yoga practice followed by meditation, breathing, and then a lecture presentation after a short break
Kathleen Ellis found yoga in 2001. Since becoming an instructor in 2007 she has been fortunate to learn from so many teachers; from nationally known yogis Tias Little and Shiva Rea, to local senior teachers Gabriel Halpern, Jim Bennitt and Rich Logan. Today her teaching is based strongly in traditional Hatha style with a strong therapeutic influence, and she seeks to create a holistic practice oriented towards nourishing the body and spirit.
