They consist of a video per day, which are on average 15 minutes long. They each target an area of the body that’s commonly inflexible from jiu jitsu or just life. Most importantly, these programs are adjusted to mostly include gentle stretches and simple movements that Sebastian has been teaching for years now in his beginner classes. There is no need to be intimidated by yoga any more, it is time to embrace it.
The first program is titled Inverted guard. For most who identify themselves as inflexible, inverting seems like a fantasy. We don’t promise you’ll be doing berimbolos after a week, but you will have better mobility in the spine and neck and you will get to terms with being upside down. In general, this program is dedicated to the spine.
The second program is titled Hips. Jiu jitsu is basically a game of who can move their hips better until someone taps. There are also so many muscles in there that can get tight and cause lower back and knee pain as well. In this program, we get after the hips gently and slowly, which happens to be the only approach that works.
The third program focuses on the Legs. Each day focuses on one part of the legs. Calves, hamstrings, quads, IT bands and the groin are all covered. The beauty of this is that you get to work on the areas that you know you need help in and those that you had no idea even existed. Kind of like when you start jiu jitsu and muscles you didn’t even know you had started to hurt. This is the same, but positive.
The last program is dedicated to the shoulders. They are a problem area for many and it shouldn’t be that way. Injuries take a long time to heal when it comes to shoulders, so taking good care of them regularly is important. Tapping later to kimuras and armlocks is also a big plus.
Going through these programs a few times is a guaranteed way to feel better in your body and kick more %@$ at training while increasing your body awareness and quality of life. If you thought you had excuses, you don’t anymore, sorry. BUT WAIT, there’s more.
Few opinions from fellow members
I am a rock, so my favourite videos on the site are the rock videos. Whilst practicing these “rock” videos I finally managed to get my Blue Belt and I can definitely say that yoga works.
Yoga4BJJ is a great system. With your help my mobility is now on the other level and I don’t have lower back pain anymore 🙂
and yoga is so good for my BJJ ??
As someone coming back from an ACL injury after taking a break for a number of years from martial arts I knew I needed to take injury prevention seriously. Yoga for BJJ has helped me become a lot more body aware and helped with my breathing.
