Exercise Motivation to YogaBox

I started a new class that combines yoga and boxing. You might think this is a weird combination but they are more alike that you’d think:

  • Both yoga and boxing focus on the breath. When you are in the ring, it’s essential to be cognizant of your breath. Some boxers even breath out with a weird sound to remind themselves to breath because no breath = no energy.

  • Both boxing and yoga build a strong core. Side plank, chair pose, plank, vinyasa are all poses that I regularly do in boxing. Weird, isn’t it? But these poses also are essential to strengthening your core and you need strong abs to absorb punches. I got hit in the core once and it knocked the wind out of me, but because of endless planks and sit-ups, I was able to continue.

  • Both boxing and yoga use body weight to build strength. On very rare occasions, I will warm up with 2 pound hand weights if I can find the lone pink pair in the bin; otherwise I struggle with 3 pound weights, but most of the time I train in boxing just with my body weight. This results in long, lean muscles. And yoga with boxing means supple strength and less injury.

I’ve been marketing YogaBox™ to an email group weekly and I typically send out two memes as part of my email campaign just to make it more interesting. I find the memes on Instagram and pull two that speak to me each week. Some weeks the message is motivational. Some weeks when I am tired, I just want something funny.

Here’s my collection from the past year. I hope they amuse you!
