Yoga Etiquette

1. Arrive Early
To avoid creating stress for yourself and your fellow students, please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early. This should give you enough time to roll out your mat, get your props and greet your classmates.

2. Turn off Electronic Devices
Yoga classes provide an opportunity to escape the digital distractions we face every day. By bringing your phone to class (even on silent), you create a distraction for yourself and those around you. Please turn them off and put them away for the duration of the class.

3. Yoga Mat Etiquette
Unroll your Yoga mat gently.
Mind your steps: it’s polite to avoid walking on a fellow yogi’s mat.

4. Respect the Mood of the Class
It can be quite disturbing to see a student get up in the middle of class to ruffle through a purse to check her phone, get tissue paper etc. Once class has started, please respect the serenity of your fellow students.

Yoga for Cyclists: 6 Poses in 6 Minutes


Training in Lake Placid, May 2014.
When I started bicycle touring in 2003, I felt like the muscles of my legs, hips and back never got to rest. As a result, I started stretching every 10 km or so to “rejuvenate” these major muscle groups.  My stretches evolved over the years as I accumulated distance on my saddle (3000+ km per year), experience and integrated what I learned on the yoga mat.

Today, I practice a mindful stretching routine which allows me to ride longer distance while maintaining strength and flexibility. The routine can be completed in 6 minutes flat! The perfect spot is under a tree or along a fence anywhere “en route”. Ideally, it should be repeated at appropriate intervals (e.g. at 30mts; 60mts; 120mts). Click here to access MY TOP 6 POSES.
