Pedal, Stretch, Breathe: The Yoga of Bicycling
If you’re a bicyclist who’s curious about yoga (or just about why your hips feel so tight after a long ride) or a yoga practicer who’s curious about cycling, you’ll enjoy this small book.
Refer brings together the details and the big picture in a friendly, accessible voice. Breathing techniques, hamstring stretches, Seattle’s bike infrastructure and urban gardening movement, the science of particulate pollution, and the broad philosophical metaphors of yogic teaching all tie together convincingly in ways you never expected.
Sections of the book include: How to breathe your way up the steepest hills (and the science behind bike paths and air quality); a flow chart of stretches to ease your achy knees and sore back; a guide to your and your bicycle’s chakras that will charm any skeptic’s heart; and more!
