Thanks for this de-stress routine, as always excellent stuff.
Last year I fractured my shoulder and tore my bicep and I find some of the reach ups are hard to achieve. Are there any movements I could be doing to aid the mobility in this region?

 My pleasure @charlielynes. I'll send you a DM about how to modify for your injury.

 Thanks Abi! Ive been doing your 15 min post ride routines regularly after every ride and I've definitely noticed an improvement in balance and recovery time! I've been motivated to do this longer sequence a couple times but it's definitely more of a challenge. Im getting better though Smile

 That's great that you've incorporated yoga into your training program. Only do this class if you feel it will be beneficial. You may be better off with 15 minute sessions but you always have this as an option.

 Abi! That was great! Have been doing this class two days ago and I could keep up with you most of the time (been practicing allmost all of the videos on your Vimeo channel).
The only part I had to laugh and feel very, very old was the part where you stood up and jumped between your arms into a sitting position. Looks like the challenges never stop Smile

 I promise you'll get there @MindPatterns! It sounds like you already pretty much a pro.

Try putting your hands on 2 blocks or books to give you a little extra height. Then just keep practicing!

 @yoga15app: Ha! That sounds reasonable! Will give it a try Smile Still struggling with the breathing since sometimes I need to catch my breath. Not used yet to some of the exercises. Thank you so much for taking care of us! Smile

 Great classes, @yoga15app ! I'm recovering from a couple of torn calves and realising that getting older means working out new ways to train and trying to be better! Plus my wife's a yoga teacher and she's pumped I'm getting into things! Thanks Abi!

 Thanks for the vids. Feels Good on my back tup . I broke both my heels and right ankle Last year, any exercises for strenghting?

 It's great to hear that your back feels better @DerkGort.

You really need to strengthen not just your injured heels and ankle but also your feet, calves and shins. Yoga will be great for you as practicing barefoot will strengthen the musculature in your feet.

Then focus on standing and balancing poses. Chair, Yoga Squat, Tree and Warrior 3 are a good place to start:

www.yoga15.com/tree
www.yoga15.com/warrior-3

You will also find 5 routines specifically for training lower body strength in the Strength series. Here is the link: vimeo.com/ondemand/yogastrengthchallenge

Just be careful not to fall out of the balancing poses and roll your ankle.

 Abi, just a quick thanks- your knee pain vid completely cured a nagging grouchy knee I'd had for 2 years. I appreciate you putting this out there. Best, Jonathan

 I've seen these videos being posted over the last year or so but never tried them out until now...thanks so much!

 You tried out the full routine? How did you find it?

 @yoga15app: Very helpful - I started out with some of your 15 min routines and then have been doing this one about once a week for the last couple weeks. I've done mobility exercises as part of my training regularly for a long time, but never flow yoga like this. Thanks again, really appreciate your clear instruction and pacing with breathing.
