Quick Tip: Shouldn’t every month be BIKE MONTH?

Posted by on May 2, 2017 in Bodywork Techniques, Community Workshop, Exercises, Health and Wellness, Stretches

We are a bike loving crew here at Psoas. We love how bike month encourages us not only to move our bodies and care for our health, but to lessen our environmental impact. To celebrate, we have a ton of cool stuff going on in May for you to enjoy: 

  • Instagram contest to win a free massage: 
    Want $20 off your next session? And the chance to win a free massage? Just share a photo of you with your bike on instagram! Tag @psoasbodywork, use #psoasbikemonth, and let us know how Psoas has helped you stay cycling. Want to participate but don't have instagram? Just email us your photo and caption and we'll post it for you.

    Head over to our friends at 3DBikefit to make sure your bike ergonomics are healthy and supportive of your long cycling future.|
     
  • 10% off a "Cycling Sports Massage" through May: 
    In this session, your Psoas therapist will assess your current biking program and goals (for the full spectrum from commuters to pros) and create a unique treatment with all that in mind. This could mean focusing on your ailing/tight biking muscles, a sports massage flush for maintenance purposes, or just helping you to recover from a long ride. Your therapist will help you decide! (Please request the Cycling Special when booking.)

Free Community Workshops: Stretch & Strengthen for Cyclists 
with Megan Windeler

Wednesday, 5/10 — 12:30 – 1:30pm & Saturday, 5/20 — 10:30 -11:30am

At Psoas we work as a team — not just with our co-therapists but with other health providers. We want to empower our clients to stretch and strengthen to maintain their good health — and we're stoked to be partnering with Megan Windeler to offer all you cyclists a free workshop to do just that.  

Whether you are a commuter, a hard core racer or something in between, riding a bike can turn you into a c-curve with arms and legs — and a lot of aches and pains. But there are some simple ways to remedy that and become a more efficient rider at the same time. 

Come stretch and strengthen with Megan, avid long time cyclist (road, mtb and commuter), Yoga teacher, Pilates practitioner, and explorer of all kinds of mindful movement and restorative shapes. We will start with a restorative practice to relax and unwind the psoas, back, hips, shoulders, neck and chest. Once we are unwound and ready to receive new patterns of movement, we will move on to a combination of gentle, simple-yet-deep core work and stretching. SIGN-UP HERE!

We will learn:
● Simple + effective stretches to do at home.
● How to engage your core deeply to support you while you ride.

Helpful tools:
● Yoga mat (or use one of the Psoas mats!), yoga strap, towel, water, comfy clothes + a sense of humor
