Kathy Lee KappmeierOne of the problems of riding motorcycles is that our minds tend to wander, and our free spirits become imprisoned by a stiff and tired body. At least, that's what Kathy Lee Kappmeier says anyways.

Kathy Lee is the founder of YogaWell, a Yoga class based in San Diego, CA, where she and some of her biker friends find new ways to strike Yoga exercises on their motorcycles.

In fact, Kathy Lee goes on to describe herself as a "goddess of Biker Yoga", having grown up with yoga and motorcycles, and finding the thunder of a v-twin engine as a "healing mantra". She does Iron Butt rides on her Indian Scout, and likes to get in some spiritual healing at gas stops.

gas station yogaKathy Lee has produced a Biker Yoga Goddess Calendar containing photos of her two-wheeling female yoga friends demonstrating classic Yoga poses with their bikes. She also has a smaller refrigerator magnet version.

In addition, the Yoga Biker Goddess herself is working a book that will feature "real bikers" and how they benefit from the art and therapy of yoga.

  1. As someone who has practiced yoga and done a few Iron Butt rides myself, I don't understand the intersection between the two. You certainly can't do much yoga on a bike while it's moving. And what's the point of using your bike as a prop in the driveway? Oh right, it looks good.

  2. While you can look kewl doing yoga with/on your bike it also DOES WORK to relieve the effects of the road, especially ironbutts !

    Yoga Therapy often uses props such as blocks, straps, and a large device called a horse. While on the road at fuel stops you can have a Biker Yoga Rx break.

    Last year at the San Diego ironbutt check point there was some chair massage offered along with a couple yoga teachers/therapists to help riders recharge. It was amazing how
    much it helped. Weather it's motorcycle massage or biker yoga a few minutes is magic.
