YogaBox™: A New Fitness Class

What is YogaBox™?

What: Join us for the launch of a new fitness class: YogaBox™! It combines strengthening, conditioning, stretching, core work and cardio for a fun and time efficient workout.

We will be using the heavy bag, boxing gloves and wraps, and a yoga mat.

YogaBox (TM) at Nonantum Boxing Club

What is it exactly? I made a video with clips from the YogaBox™ Open House class.

You start with a half hour of heavy bag work with Marc  in which you learn to punch the heavy bag and the punches of boxing (jab, cross, hook). You’ll alternate with cardio exercises off the bag like burpees, jumping jacks and push ups. (You can go at your own pace and rest when you need to.)

Next comes 45 minutes of Vinyasa yoga with Dawn working the core and stretching the muscles in an invigorating and dynamic flow. Dawn boxed for one year and has designed the yoga around releasing the muscles used for the first part of YogaBox.

  • You do NOT need to know how to box OR do yoga.
  • Please bring a yoga mat and boxing gloves and wraps if you have them.
  • You can also borrow boxing gloves from Nonantum Boxing Club.

Where: Nonantum Boxing Club at 75 Adams St
