Our popular “Yoga for Cyclists” course at Chilwell Olympia, had fantastic feedback

James said “Great to have Yoga for Cyclists as I cycle a lot and yoga is great for releasing tensions and muscles. Feel very relaxed, de-stressed, loose in muscles after each class. Good to meet other cyclists in the city through the class. Feel relaxed all weekend, feel stiller in my mind and more focused”.

Rapidcyclist said “I am more relaxed at the end of each session and have an increased awareness of differences either side of my body”.

Liz said “I’ve enjoyed the classes. Sometimes I can’t make my usual weekly class, so this has really helped me. I like the variety and it’s a well-paced session”.

Coming soon to Beeston

Very soon Beeston will have its own secure Citycard Cycle Hub at Beeston Train Station.
