I just had a chance to review Beth Shaw's YogaFit for Cyclists DVD. Beth is the founder and creator of YogaFit Training Systems Inc. YogaFit for Cyclists can be used by mountain bikers, road bikers or spinning class enthusiasts. The YogaFit for Cyclists DVD is 60 minutes long.
Warming Up for the Ride

I found the DVD to be wonderfully relaxing. It's the perfect way to unwind, stretch out to improve flexibility, and relax before going to sleep. You can also use the DVD to warm up your muscles, before going out for a bike ride, or attending spinning class. I highly recommend this DVD to cyclists of all abilities, as a compliment to their normal exercise routine.
Benefits of Working Out with YogaFit for Cyclists DVD
According to the YogaFit DVD, "Bicycling and indoor, stationary cycling are among the best forms of cardiovascular conditioning but they often leave the participant with tightness, aches and even pain. Using this DVD, as a consistent sport related yoga program, will alleviate many of these symptoms; including lower back pain, trapezious stress and tight hamstrings and quadriceps."
