Spend a long day riding a motorcycle without preparing properly and you’re likely to end up with neck, shoulder and back pain. Assuming a proper riding position, staying nourished and hydrated, taking rest breaks and deep breathing can prevent that and have you arriving at your destination pain free. Take a few minutes before you get on your bike to warm up a bit and stretch out. Take a few deep breaths before starting again after a break. It gets rid of road buzz and that “stupid” feeling. Based on her yoga expertise and her own riding experience, Ana’s got exercises that can be done before, during and after riding.
