Online Classes & Workshops
Class Style & Level
The 60-minute yang classes are sports focused practices designed specifically with cyclists in mind. The repetitive nature of cycling biomechanics and the cycling posture itself create physical imbalances that as cyclists, we must try to counteract. This practice is a strength-based practice that will move you through sequences that challenge your strength and flexibility. Athletes in general will also benefit from these classes, as will professional sitters ;-). Virginia offers options for all levels of students in her classes. Breathing, stretching, strengthening, and deep relaxation are included in every class.
In a yang practice, we're targeting muscle and muscle wants to be warm and have repetitive motion. In yin yoga, we're actually trying to get the muscles to disengage so we can target deeper, denser connective tissues, in particular the layer of tissue called Fascia. This practice is about releasing deeply held tension within your body, mind, and emotions and perfectly compliments as well as strengthens cyclists training regimes. It's ideal post-training when relaxation is vital for recovery. It will activate your parasympathetic nervous system and the long holds will strengthen concentration skills at the same time.

What you will need for class
