Pedal, Stretch, Breathe: The Yoga of Bicycling
by Kelli Refer Author
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. In a friendly, accessible voice, Refer brings together the details with the big picture. 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!
Kelli also designed a blank book to go along with this one so you can keep a journal of your yoga practice or whatever else you need to write down in life.
