This optimized blend of biking and yoga will be offered on July 14th at Silver Star Bike Park which is located just 22km’s north east of Vernon, BC; it is a world class destination bike park featuring 18 distinct biking trails that range from beginner runs up to expert trails.

Leech combined his prowess as a mountain bike instructor and guide with his cycling specific yoga approach to share his personal experience of how these two activities can so beautifully unite. This workshop goes beyond the typical ‘how-to’ and explores the powerful development of mental state experiences to optimize your performance and enjoyment.
