ALL-ROUNDER SERIES

This series is a good place to start, as it essentially has you covered. We cycle between Flexibility, Strength, Mobility, Balance and Relaxation routines. It's great if you want a made-for-you program. You can then decide which discipline you want to go deeper with.

All-Rounder 1: Flex Basics

In the first Flexibility sequence, we break down the basic yoga poses—Standing Forward Bend, Downward Dog, Child's pose, Hero and Seated Spinal Twist. Take the poses slowly and carefully, paying attention to your alignment and how the stretches feel in different parts of your body.... Please subscribe to view this page.

All-Rounder 3: Flow Rider

In this sequence, we'll flow smoothly through a continuous series of poses designed to increase flexibility, train new movement patterns and get the blood pumping. This routine moves faster than any of the other styles so it may take a couple of goes through before the poses become more familiar.... Please subscribe to view this page. Username or...

All-Rounder 4: Hold Still

In this sequence, we learn some of the basic yoga balancing poses—Tree and Warrior 3—and play with other ways to alter your centre of gravity. Try to stay as still as you can in the balance pose holds to build joint stability, muscular endurance and proprioceptive awareness. Incorporate a balance workout into your training each week to continue to...

All-Rounder 5: Unwind

This gentle sequence is designed to relax your body and calm your mind, with some simple breathing and stretching. We bend the spine from side to side, forward and back and twist it to loosen up the upper body, then finish with a deeper backbend and a restorative forward bend. It's a nice one to do at the end of a long day.... Please subscribe to...

All-Rounder 6: Backbending

In this back-bending sequence we flex and extend the spine in Cat-Cow before moving through progressively deeper backbends. Backbends are a great counterpose to your riding position so I recommend you include at least one back backbending routine a week in your training program. If you normally practice yoga first thing, give your spine a chance...

All-Rounder 7: Leg Strength

In this leg strength workout, we activate the glutes and quads in Chair, High Lunge and Silver Surfer. Alignment in these standing poses is really important for the health of your joints. Try to always check that your toes, knees and hips are all facing straight ahead. This will become automatic over time but it takes a certain amount of conscious...

All-Rounder 8: Loosen Up

This is a nice one to loosen up all your joints—the ankles, knees, hips, spine, shoulders, elbows and wrists. Remember that the Mobility workouts move a little faster so you may want to pause it the first couple of times through until it is more familiar. Try to maintain good alignment throughout—toes and knees point straight ahead.... Please...

All-Rounder 9: Balance Twist

This sequence requires a great deal of body control, as we play with different twisting poses that throw you off your balance. Try to stay focused and as still as you can in the poses and transitions. Challenging your balance in this way is great for improving core stability and coordination....

All-Rounder 10: Relax

This relaxing sequence is designed to loosen up your hips, spine and shoulders especially. It's a great one to do after a ride or at the end of a long day. We finish with a relaxing breathing exercise. Try to stay completely still and focus on the sensations of your breath in your body. If you're still awake, resist the urge to jump up and finish...

All-Rounder 11: Classic Hips

This sequence has you covered for hip openers—Low Lunge and Lizard for the hip flexors, Pigeon and Dead Pigeon for the glutes and piriformis, and cross-legged forward bends for the groin and adductors. It's another one of my absolute favourites. Take this routine slowly, exploring your areas of tightness, asymmetry and discomfort, and using the...

All-Rounder 12: Core Power

This core sequence is designed to strengthen your upper and lower abs, obliques and lower back. Try to include 2-3 core workouts into your training every week and you'll notice a dramatic difference in your riding. You can zip through this routine and make it easy for yourself or step up the intensity by seeing how controlled you can make the...

All-Rounder 13: Flex + Flow

In this sequence, we move through a series of lunges, twists and sidebends to loosen up your joints and get your body moving. You need a little more yoga experience to practice this routine because it moves fairly quickly but it's not too complicated so you should get the hang of it after a couple of repetitions.... Please subscribe to view this...

All-Rounder 14: Epic Control

In this challenging balance sequence, focus and control are the aim of the game. Try to keep your transitions smooth and to hold the poses as still as you can.
You may find a block helps with your alignment in Triangle and Revolved Triangle....

We begin with a breathing exercise called 3-Part Breath, loosen up the neck and shoulders, open up the hips and finish with a short breathing meditation. Bon nuit.... Please subscribe to...
