YogaBox: Try FREE Class at Open House

What is YogaBox?

It’s a new fitness concept developed at Nonantum Boxing Club to combine the cardio and strengthening workout of a boxing workout with the core workout and stretching of yoga.

YogaBox, Dawn Davis


Why combine Yoga with Boxing?

Boxing actually has a lot in common with yoga. Both are all about the breath. You need to be able to control your breath in the ring to sustain your energy just as in yoga, the breath is what the practice is ultimately about.

Both yoga and boxing work the core muscles. The power for boxing punches doesn’t come from arms and shoulders; it’s actually from the core muscles in the lower body turning to create force. In yoga, core muscles are utilized in every pose.

What you will get out of a YogaBox workout:

  • strengthening
  • cardio vascular
  • stretching
  • core workout
  • abdominal workout
  • boxing skills
  • yoga poses (Vinyasa Flow Yoga)
  • fun
  • friendly and inviting atmosphere
  • No boxing or yoga experience necessary

Who is Teaching YogaBox?

It’s taught by the two best fitness instructors in their field! The YogaBox class is carefully constructed so that the yoga and boxing complement each other. The yoga routine designed by Dawn Davis who spent the last year learning to box, focuses on core strengthening as well as stretching the muscles used during the boxing workout. Marc Gargaro’s boxing workout will make you sweat.
