The SPOKE Story
HELLO I'M ALEX...
A New York-based British yoga fan and cyclist. I’ve been practicing yoga for over 17 years and am in the process of training to be a teacher. Restorative yoga is my passion; using the breath, gravity and props to allow the body to heal itself.
I started road cycling 18 months ago and fell in love with riding, setting up SpokeNYC as an informal cycling crew, exploring the city and local events.
The more I ride, the more I realize the links between cycling and yoga: feeling the experience through the earth (mind), focussing the core and legs to perform (body) and getting into the flow (spirit). There are huge benefits to exploring the connection between these two amazing experiences, not least the physical benefits but also the mental ones.
This space is a place to celebrate the union between yoga and cycling. I offer it to help your practice and improve your ride.
I’d love to hear your feedback, please get in touch.
