Yoga is Fierce Self Care

Yoga Opener

Yoga For Everybody Everywhere 

Whether you wanna get Hot or go with the Flow, there’s a yoga for you. It can be gentle or super challenging. You can always adapt to what is best for your body.

Yoga is Fierce Self Care on all levels. However, Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness and transformation, is a Fierce Hazel favorite.

What we love about yoga is that you can change your attitude in just a few minutes, increase your energy, detox, relax, and release. So give it a try to gear up for a bike ride or kickstart your day.

We've teamed up with Senta Scarborough, who brings us some great starter movements. Use them to relax, get rid of upper body tension, or energize pre-ride. The best thing? These are movements for everybody! All bodies, all genders, all faiths. We are all human.

Yoga shoulder shrug

Shoulder Shrug

The shoulder shrug can be done in just one minute, and the movement will also help relieve some of that tension we cyclists hold in our chests.

1. Sit cross-legged on the ground or upright in your chair
2. Straight spine
3. Deep 
breath and inhale through the nose
4. Bring your shoulders up; nice and tight to the base of your spine
5. Then quickly drop them down as you exhale through the nose
6. Inhale up; exhale down all through the nose. Do them fairly quickly and at whatever pace is right for you
7. End the exercise by deeply inhaling while lifting shoulders tightly up towards your ears; hold the breath, exhale, and release them down

Yoga Arms up

Do you raise your arms in the air when you win the race?  Then this is the exercise for you! Not only will it pump up your energy pre-race, but your teammates will think you're practicing for the finish. Positive visualization is a win-win no matter how you look at it.  

1. Sit cross-legged on the ground or upright in your chair
2. Straight spine and relaxed shoulders 
3. Raise your arms up 60°, curl your fingers into the base of your fingers with thumbs pointing out as if plugging into the sky
4. Close your eyes and begin Breath Of Fire as above
5. To end, inhale deeply, bring the arms overhead with thumb tips touching, open the fingers, exhale and relax the arms down.
