Vic Williams has been working on getting his certification through Midtown and completed his teacher training course in April. We feel that Yoga goes hand in hand with the martial arts. Many of the core principals are incredibly similar, such as using whole body strength and dexterity, maintaining focus, and working balance. Martial artists can truly benefit from working Yoga into their training.
However, you don't need to be a martial artist to benefit from Yoga. Life is hectic! Work, bills, family, and other obligations can take their toll. Yoga gives you a much needed break from all that. One of the biggest differences I've personally noticed with Yoga compared to other workouts is the way I feel afterwards. After a tough martial arts workout or a long run I tend to feel worn out. Mentally and physically I feel ready to crash! Yet after a Yoga workout I feel refreshed and energized. I know I'm still working, my muscles still feel like they worked pretty hard, but I feel invigorated and ready for more action anyways.
We have both morning and evening classes! I encourage both martial artists and people just looking for an alternative workout to check out a class.
