What is Yoga for BJJ?


We are a group of BJJ practitioners that understand the benefits of yoga practice for Brazilian jiu-jitsu and in fact all martial arts. Our mission is to make it available and understandable for everyone. The more people in the BJJ community that reap the benefits = the happier we are.


The site is an affordable subscription-based website, where we offer a yearly and monthly subscription, without contracts or shady deals.

My body hurts from BJJ, and I heard yoga is the thing.

How do I get started?


First, click underneath to register on Yoga for BJJ and try a free class... (there might be a deal for you once you try it)

Before that, you can click on the programs and see which videos are available to our members. When you feel ready for the benefits and effects of yoga, you are ready to subscribe as a member!

The monthly subscription is $24.99 per month, and you will get access to over 500 videos (and counting)! The yearly is $228 per year with downloadable content.

We offer a full refund if you are not satisfied after the first month (has yet to happen).

I have an injury and need to rehab it, what should I do?

If you have a serious injury, talk to your doctor or physiotherapist and ask if yoga is OK.

Then, check out the Yoga for BJJ rehab programs here – www.yogaforbjj.net/rehab-programs-on-yoga-for-bjj

We have a ton of rehab programs filmed by our licensed osteopath Rosi Sexton. She’s not just your ordinary osteopath though. She’s a former UFC veteran and BJJ brown belt. You could say she has as much experience with grappling injuries and their rehab as you could possibly find. Check out the programs, find the rehab program for your injury and start rehabbing. Many positions are great if you are hurt, while others might aggravate and make it worse.

With the Yoga programs though, a bit of sensitivity and self-preservation is needed here, and I would never give general advice to specific conditions (as I am not a doctor or specialist). That being said, I think most people will benefit from practicing yoga on a regular basis, injured or not! Go slow and don’t push it and you will be good.

General Yoga Questions

Here we have all things "yoga" that you might ask

HOW DO I BECOME A CERTIFIED YOGA FOR BJJ INSTRUCTOR?

To become a certified Yoga for BJJ instructor you have to attend one of our teacher training courses.

WHEN I DO STRETCH, HOW LONG SHOULD I DO IT FOR?

Flows are normally better as a standalone workout and perfect as a warm-up before BJJ and stretches are better after a long day or after training. There is nothing really wrong with doing them at any time, except for maybe long static stretching sessions before training (science shows that that isn’t the best idea). For the morning specifically, we created a morning bundle with morning yoga flows for when you are feeling sleepy and tight.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO YOGA?

Great question, asked by everyone ever. If you do yoga once a week it is far better than doing yoga zero times per week. However, if you do an hour of yoga every day it is even better. My honest answer would be –as much as possible. At least 15 minutes a day will make a noticeable difference but doubling that will give you more than double the returns.

i am beyond inflexible, or "as stiff as a rock"

Quite simply, yes. I would say that it is much easier to feel the positive effects of yoga if you are inflexible, because it can only get better. In fact, we have 4 Yoga for Rocks Programs on the website specifically designed for those who need some SOS assistance!

DO YOU HAVE TO WARM UP BEFORE DOING A CLASS?

Usually, no. The classes are designed to warm you up as you do them.

If you would like to do a little extra to loosen up before your class then check out our Official warm up routine.

WHAT YOGA MAT SHOULD I BUY?

I can only recommend the best mat out there: Manduka Pro.
It has a lifetime durability guarantee, and it gets better the longer you use it.
No matter what mat you use, don’t let it get dirty, as dust and sand will make it less sticky. Ask yourself this question as well: “How much will this mat start to slip after I start sweating?

Jump in the chatbox and we can send you in the right direction

MY BACK HURTS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Head over to our rehab library and choose the back rehab program that most suits your pain/injury type. You’ll find them if you click here

Another program you can do is the back pain program. It has exercises Sebastian used when fixing his herniated disc issues so it is tried and tested.

MY HEELS DON'T TOUCH THE FLOOR IN DOWNDOG!

That’s fine, they don’t need to! Obsessing over that is a very white belt thing to do, kinda like choking someone from the guard. The goal in downdog should be to straighten your arms and your back. You can bend the knees and get into a comfortable stretch for the back of your legs!

You can also check out this article if you want to learn more about the pose and how to do it correctly!

Technical Issues and Questions

This is common because most people tend to forget if their username is their email or a username they set.
If you cannot reset your password, then send an email to adam@yogaforbjj.net and we will remind you of your username, and reset your password.

I paid, but I cannot views the videos. What should I do?

Two things: First make sure that you actually cannot see the videos! If that is the case, then clear the cache of your browser, and even try a different browser.

If you still cannot watch the videos, please send an email to adam@yogaforbjj.net and we will hard-boot your account (kicking it hard, choking it out and then restarting it.)

That always works!
