As temperatures rise, we can finally consider movement beyond just scurrying quickly from a cold place into a warm place. We’ve talked about how mindfulness can be integrated into walking, running, and rowing, but let’s get up on to two wheels!
Drivers in Concord near iBme will often need to keep an eye out for a blue blur—our Executive Director Jessica Morey riding into the office! Riding a bike is a wonderful way to practice internal and external mindfulness by keeping track of our balance, movement, breathing, the sounds around us, and the road unfolding in front of us.
Like any exercise, it’s important to stretch before and after. iBme teacher Ghylian Bell (founder of the Urban Yoga Institute), offered up some movements with biking in mind on television. But they’re great whether you’re riding or not!
