“Our physical body is our vehicle for life and we need to acknowledge and treat it as such. Our mental body is made up of thoughts, feelings, and dreams; it is shaped by our experiences, our associations and our discernment. Our spiritual body is the variety and sustainability in life; it is creativity, infinite and unconditional love. Fusing the body, mind and spirit, and including the athlete and the artist within, is the ultimate balance and direction of Ride Alchemy.”

Ride Alchemy in Three Parts

Ride Alchemy is a resource for indoor riding teachers, fitness instructors, at-home workout enthusiasts, as well as seekers of integrated movement for the body, mind and spirit. It provides a complete and easy-to-use Ride Alchemy Tool Kit—an organized resource full of applied techniques for indoor cycling. It also includes 26 pre-designed and easy-to-follow 45-minute Ride Alchemy journeys, complete with playlists, inspiration for new ideas, and new ways of approaching indoor cycling and fitness.
The first part is my own journey as an athlete, artist and seeker—and the discovery of Ride Alchemy. This is about my personal journey from a fitness fanatic to yoga practitioner and seeker of knowledge. It is about my professional journey as a fitness instructor who used to motivate her students to push harder and harder with no rest, to the creation of a fully integrated body, mind and spirit approach to indoor cycling.
The second part is the philosophy and structure of Ride Alchemy. It outlines the step-by-step process and intention that goes into designing every Ride Alchemy journey. This section will give you a deeper understanding of what goes on behind the scenes of creating a Ride Alchemy journey before, during and after class.
The third part includes the Ride Alchemy Tool Kit—a complete indoor cycling resource that summarizes applied techniques relevant to the Ride Alchemy journeys and any indoor cycling class. Here you will also find the 26 pre-designed 45-minute Ride Alchemy journeys, easy for you to deliver to your classes or follow at home. Consider these to be similar to recipes. Follow them exactly piece by piece, or use them as a guide and substitute your own flavours and textures.
