That's so awesome, I had no idea there was a book about that. I'm going to have to find it
I've been doing yoga for longer than I've been riding. I only got back into riding almost a year ago. I find yoga is amazing for strengthening your whole body, and you can find poses that target specific areas. For example, I have lower back issues when I ride, so doing certain poses that strengthen and stretch the lower back are really helpful for me. Pilates is also awesome for strengthening and stretching, but I find yoga to be a lot more helpful. It also helps you train your mind to be more calm, relaxed, and alert, I find.
