üma kleppinger writes books


The only New Year's Resolution I ever made and kept was scribbled on a wine-stained cocktail napkin one late December evening: TRY YOGA.

Fast forward five years and I was teaching yoga and meditation in studios, retreat centers, and conferences all over the Western US.

It would be a few more years before I started racing bikes—road, cyclocross, cross country and enduro mountain biking. Naturally, I decided to become a cycling coach.

Though cycling is regarded as low-impact exercise, it's also rife with serious repetitive strain injuries.

Fusing my interests and experience in yoga and bikes, I developed a therapeutic yoga program tailored to cyclists. I self-published the first edition of BikeYoga in 2011, followed by two eBook titles in 2015.

Though I no longer actively promote these books, they're still damn good. You can order the eBook versions over on Bikeyoga.

"I appreciated Uma's knowledge about the particular needs cyclists have regarding the stresses this sport puts on the body. She was a great teacher—very level, even, steady—and challenging. Üma brought more than an understanding of body mechanics to her classes, guiding her students to honor their own body's needs."
