Yoga:
So yeah, yoga. I've heard recommendations by a many cyclists saying it's been great for them, and if it helps me achieve my threshold power while in a more / fully aerodynamic position, then I'm willing to give it a go. It doesn't hurt that it is also an activity that can be done with Dawnski.

So it was some kind of hot yoga, the kind where I end up being that guy in the corner. You know the one. The sweaty, panting, shaking... well basically the one that looks like an out of shape rapist.

The instructor seemed nice enough, but i had a heap of "huh... what goes where?!" moments, so spent most of the time looking to the dude in front/right of me to know what to do. Even with his visual queues, I think I did most things "wrong". Also, when the instructor said "it's ok if you need to bend a knee (or something) " I was always doing that thing... and sometimes that wasn't enough

I felt light and limber after the session was over, part of which might be explained by the litres of sweat that had poured from my body. It also seems to have made me taller, as I was mere millimetres from smashing my head on the support beams in the car park below my apartment. I ducked for safety.
