Yoga and motocross might seem like a strange combination but as a rider, bringing attention to your flexibility, range of motion and recovery could be just the thing you need to give you the edge.
In this 15-video introductory course, you’ll practise a variety of different styles of yoga—some restorative, others incredibly challenging, some designed for strength and others to improve the elasticity in your muscles—to alleviate aches and pains and help you to become a faster and more well-rounded athlete.
My own interest in yoga and motocross is not, unfortunately, first-hand! I’ve never knowingly shredded the gnar🤘
My first experience came at the beginning of 2020, when I spent a couple of months at the SoCal motocross tracks, including Pala and Cahuilla, helping my friend and Yoga 15 athlete, Charley with his racing and recovery.
When I escaped to Mexico after the pandemic hit, Matthias—a young and incredibly talented trials and enduro motorcycle rider came to work with us. Unfortunately, Matthias tore his ACL in an accident two years ago (read the full story here) and I started to help him, first to strengthen his knees and then to incorporate other aspects of yoga into his training to improve his riding.
It’s hard to imagine two sports more different than motocross and yoga but actually the combination is like magic! Yoga teaches you to unlock your hips to get into the optimal riding position, it can help you to build stability in the core and upper body and provides you with the depth of recovery you need for what is arguably the most gruelling sport on the planet!
