Skills and Yoga Women's Trip, with Katy Curd Coaching and Soul Connection Yoga


Combine on-the-trails MTB skills coaching with yoga for riders, on this special women’s trip. Thursday 16 to Tuesday 21 September 2021. 

We are delighted that Katy Curd, founder of Katy Curd Coaching, and Karen Maidment, founder of Soul Connection Yoga, will be running this extra-special trip at Pure Mountains this autumn.

Each morning, Pure Mountains' guides will lead a ride on the awesome trails of the Sierra Nevada. Katy will be providing on-the-trail coaching during the rides. After a late lunch back at the farmhouse, Karen will lead an Yoga for Riders session each afternoon.

This trip is ideal for intermediate and above riders who want to consolidate and improve their MTB skills and to reap the benefits of mountain bike specific yoga, in a supportive and fun, female-led environment.

About Katy Curd Coaching

We love to ride and want you to feel the same. Our love for riding shines through in our coaching. 

We coach, we ride, we race. Our coaches bring 15+ years of professional riding experience at UK National and World Cup levels and are certified MTB coaches and guides. We believe that hands-on experience counts for everything.

We aim to develop your skills and to build your confidence in a fun, safe and relaxed environment. Whether you're looking to polish up your skills, or to rekindle your lost love of riding, we’ve been there. Nerves, plateaus, frustrations, a loss of confidence; we understand how it feels and how to overcome it.

We believe that small changes equal BIG progression. Our coaches thrive on assessing your riding patterns, breaking down relevant techniques and delivering them in progressive chunks, so that you can recreate your success on every ride.

Katy’s biggest attribute is her ability to make ANY rider feel at ease. Her relaxed manner, but meticulous eye for detail, ensure that she is one of the UK's busiest mountain bike coaches. With 10+ years of coaching knowledge and 15+ years of national and world cup racing experience, Katy can adapt her coaching to any rider.

About Soul Connection Yoga

Soul Connection's Yoga for Riders is a non-spiritual form of yoga specifically designed for riders, by a rider. No spiritual stuff to make you feel out of place, just a functional focus to make ride time better. Ride faster, sharper, with a strong, pain free body.

You can practise in your t-shirt and shorts, with people who love what you love and struggle with the same physical aches, pains and injuries.

Yoga is the perfect companion to mountain biking. The popular misconception that you need to be flexible to do yoga is untrue. Yoga for Riders focuses on stability, flexibility and strength, with clearly defined riding objectives in mind. It's designed to enhance performance and recovery, both mentally and physically so that you can enjoy more of what you love: time out on your bike!

Karen is a self-confessed yoga and mountain bike addict. She fuses her love of cycling and being in nature with her passion and skill as a yoga teacher. Karen teaches yoga that is designed to help you move as your body intended. If you love to move your body, learn and have fun, this is for you.


Price: €1000 / £900 per person. Five nights, four days. Includes the activities outlined above plus rustic-luxe farmhouse accommodation, Land Rover support, full board (except two dinners), beer and wine and Málaga airport transfers.
