    You are going to find it extremelly useful for bjj... or just for about anything. Be warned however that if it's this class is based on ashtanga yoga, its going to pulverize your shoulders and tricepsin no time... really. I mean, it's good, but don't be surprised :tongue3:

    My only advice if you've never done yoga before to never stop breathing during the asanas (yoga poses). At the beginning people concentrate on the poses and forget to breath. It's the breathing while holding a pose that makes it a bitch. The other advice is that as you do a stretch in a pose, focus in contracting the muscles opposite to the ones being stretched - in essense you are doing a quasi static contraction exercise with each pose.

    Last but not least, when you do a downward facing dog, the inner side of your foreams may become sore, specially on the tendons just around the elbow. Massage them on a regular basis and try not to contract your forearm muscle (contraction should occur on the shoulders, triceps and back)...

    ... oh hell, you'll figure it out as you do the class. Enjoy!!!

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Yoga kicks ass

    Both for the hot girls and for gaining strength at the extreme range of motion. Which comes in hand when you're doing BJJ or any other ne waza /wrestling activity. It's good too to build good flexibility habits now because as you get older it is the only way you are going to be able to keep on doing full contact martial arts.

    FYI the power yoga/ashtanga stuff tends to stress moving through the postures, while Iyengar schools do the static poses, often with helper tools (foam blocks etc). Funny thing though is that I've seen movies of Iyengar (on youtube) moving through ashtanga like poses...make of that what you will.

    Yeah, that reminds me of one fav. yoga teacher I had. She was big into iyengar, specially into helping pple do the poses according to their physical abilities (body size, flexibility, etc.)

    Anyways, the class was (supposed to be) bikram based, in a 90+degree heated room, with ashtanga and iyengar peppered all over. I loved it!
