Yoga is a Sanskrit word which means to “unite”. In this class we learn how to unite the body with the mind, bringing them in harmony with each other, so that we may become more complete human beings. Muay Thai requires amazing flexibility, as well as mental toughness. In our Yoga class we work on relaxing the nervous system by holding various postures (also called asanas) for extended periods of time, so that the central nervous system becomes relaxed, and your flexibility increases. To train the nervous system, we use our mind as a tool to condition the body to become stronger, achieving superior mental and physical strength.
