Yoga Tune Up for the Rectus Femoris – with Emilie Mikulla

Quell quad tension with this Roll Model move that’s perfect for cyclists and runners post-workout.

Recovery for cyclists

Strengthen, stretch and mobilise the hips with this sequence that will give you more power on the bike and keep injuries at bay!

Roll Model move: upper back tension tamer!

Neck, shoulder and back pain? This is the sequence for you! Unzip your upper back and find relief from too much sitting and living life in front of us! Remember to breathe, making your exhale longer than your inhale, for an even more relaxing experience. Enjoy!

Recovery for cyclists (part deux!)

Undo the effects of too much spinal flexion on the bike! Use therapy balls or a foam roller to create as much commotion in your tissues as possible and restore the health of your muscles and associated fascias. Use blocks, or books, or blanket, adjusted to your level of comfort to mobilise the thoracic spine and open the chest.

Put your shoulders back on your shoulders!

Plankers, desk jockeys, cyclists, mamas, this one’s for you! This sequence will open up the front of your body and will allow you to breathe better, giving you a clearer sense of where your shoulders are located.
