There’s no need to feel nervous before your first spinning class. Read these tips on what to expect and don’t let those nerves or insecurities stop you from getting on the bike. You’ll love it! It’s going to be a little intimidating Yep. I had to say it. There’s just no way of getting around it. Anything you do (not just spinning) for the first time will be a little intimidating. But make sure you get to class a few minutes early, so you can choose a bike in a spot in the class you’ll be comfortable with. I start…

Welcome to the new Spinning & Yoga website! I thought it was time for a redesign of the blog, since it has been more than 2 years since I launched it. Heading in a new direction After a bit of thinking and trying to figure out where I want to take the blog, and a bit of brainstorming I am more committed to bringing you informative and helpful articles, both about spinning and yoga. From this month, you’ll start seeing weekly posts about spinning, how to get the best out of your classes and yes, more Spin Mixes. I’m also…

On most Saturday mornings, I do a quick 5km Park Run. I don’t always go to the same park each week, but I definitely do a yoga stretch flow afterwards. It’s been a while since I recorded any of my yoga flows or even posted a few pictures on Instagram. I’m experimenting with my YouTube channel again, but there’s definitely more and new fun stuff coming up soon. But that’s for another post. For now, here’s my post-run stretch flow. https://youtu.be/ghIgMW6hbrc

A new year, the same old me, but a new Spin Mix! Happy New Year folks! Is it too late to say that? I hope not, because I’ve been using it in all my emails (hehehe). Anyhoo, I thought I’d post a new Spin Mix for all those who enjoyed the festive season eats and treats like I did. I’ve also give the blog some though and will be bringing you new kinds of content on a more regular basis. So keep visiting Spinning and Yoga`. In the meantime, here’s this month’s spinning playlist with lots of ups and downs…

Can you believe this is the last spin mix of 2016? I can’t believe how time has flown! But it looks like I’m only able to give you guys new spinning playlists once a month… or so. Maybe I’ll do better in 2017. At least I’ll try 😉 Putting together a spinning playlist isn’t as easy as it seems. Lots of consideration needs to be given to song choice, intensity, timing and the guides. This month’s spinning playlist is all about that cadence. There aren’t really any hills, and the “road” is pretty flat. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a…

New month = new Spin Mix. And we’re hitting the big 3-0! Well howdie October! Can you believe how fast this year has flown by? I certainly can’t! But seeing as it’s a new month, here’s a new spinning playlist for you. Today we’re going to be rolling with them hills with pretty standard climbs and then some downhills. Make sure that you’ve got enough tension on your flywheel (whether you’re going uphill or downhill) to give yourself a good workout and not bounce around on the saddle. This is a pretty simple spinning workout, but you can push yourself…
