The program runs four weeks–three mornings per week at various studios around Toronto, and each day targets either the upper-body, core or lower-body. Jock Yoga Bootcamp uses long-hold yoga postures and flows repetitively to achieve exhaustion of the targeted muscles. The physical results are undeniable, and the mental uplift cited by bootcampers has sold out venues all over the city. The Toronto Star calls Jock Yoga Bootcamp “Wildly popular Yoga for Type-A jocks”. Check ‘When and Where?’ for the next Bootcamp!
