Yoga For Jiu-Jitsu

YOGA FOR JIU-JITSU PROGRAM SCHEDULE

  • Saturday 1:00pm

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

When you talk about the body and Jiu-Jitsu, muscle tightness is one thing which people mention, but a lot of people fail to mention muscular imbalance, a lot of people will practice techniques and also spar using a dominant side, which makes sense considering everyone has a dominant writing and walking side. But there is a fix, and that is Yoga! While Yoga used to have the reputation of middle-aged ladies in spandex saying “namaste”, more and more people are getting into this as a way to balance their regular workout routines and also teaches you some valuable life lessons. Yoga can also help with your muscle imbalances, as it challenges you to focus on positions for both sides of your body, helping with the imbalances that Jiu-Jitsu causes. More than Yoga, students will dive into the world of functional range conditioning to increase mobility and strengthen joints. No "namaste," no chanting, students are encouraged to crack jokes and ask questions in this laid back class. Class will take place right on the Jiu-Jitsu mats. No gi necessary, though you may want to bring your Jiu-Jitsu belt as a prop.
