GT Bicycles sponsors Abi at Crankworx 2017

It’s happening!

I’m pumped to announce that GT Bicycles and the organizers at Crankworx have made it possible for me to come and teach classes at the festival this year, as the official yoga instructor.

I will be teaching two different styles of classes, one in the morning and one in the evening.

The morning class, which is available exclusively for registered riders, is called Flow. It is designed to warm you up, loosen you up, focus your mind, and help you establish a solid competitive mindset for race day.

The evening class, which is open to everyone, is called Stretch + Release. This is a style of class that I have adapted from Yin yoga to support and accelerate your recovery. We hold a specific set of restorative poses for three-plus minutes each to restore muscle tissue length, loosen up your body, and calm the central nervous system.

You can find all the details for the class times and venues here: www.crankworx.com/event/crankworx-yoga-classes-with-abi-from-yoga15/

I hope to see as many of you as possible at the classes. Please come and say hi after. I’d love to meet you, hear your feedback and answer any questions you have, in person.

 Abi, if you're ever looking for another source of income. You need to do the voice for GPS in cars, I don't know how you would go about getting that job but it would be a hit. you'd get there relaxed and feeling great, it'd be world changing.

 Hell yeah good on you Abi! Your videos have helped me transition from ACL surgery recovery back to shredding. Thanks!
  • + 1
 Any ones in particular? Im just wrapping up ACL recovery as well and hopefully back on the bike in a few weeks. Maybe i need to get to whistler!
  • + 1

 @pip3r: This one is my go to at this point as I've had some hip issues in my recovery: www.pinkbike.com/news/15-minute-post-ride-yoga-routine-2015.html

This one is great too but may want to wait until you're totally knee pain free: www.pinkbike.com/video/460692

This was my 3rd ACL reconstruction (no more soccer) and my biggest advice is never stop rehabbing. I retore my ACL when I thought I was strong again, but I really had just learned how to compensate for my weaknesses. Get your hamstrings stronger than they were before you tore ACL. And then get them even stronger. Good luck!
