    I am an 50+ triathlete looking for a good weekly yoga routine to integrate into my Swim/Bike/Run training program. In particular I need to improve my spinal rotation and flexibility for cycling. What would you suggest?

    kregweiss, posted on March 23, 2015

    Hi Bem,

    Thank you for your questions. Yoga can certainly be beneficial to your training routine. It is essential that the yoga complements and not works against your training program - I would recommend practices that offer a recovery and restoration approach versus heavy conditioning and engagement. Performance gains in your training are greatly enhanced by sufficient recovery and rest - adding in vigorous yoga practices may hinder those recovery intentions. Practices like the following may be more suitable: http://www.gaiamtv.com/video/lower-body-yoga-flow-recover-restore-and-re... Always keep in mind the biomechanics adaptations that could be occurring due to your specific training and aim to find practices that offer balance against undesirable habitual patterns that are settling into the tissues (i.e. if you are frequently in forward head posture due to cycling and daily work patterns, doing postures like Shoulder Stand will likely contribute to worsening tissue adaption).

    Hope this helps,
    Kreg

    Your work is lovely and I think you probably meant to say, 'intimate' rather than 'intimidate' on your first line of the Q + A above.
