In addition to the considerable training materials and support included within the course, trainees have the option for private online training with a BoxingYoga™ Head Coach.

Private online training is useful if you find yourself stuck on any aspect of your training, if you require help in preparation for your assessment or simply to reaffirm your knowledge and skills.
You can ask questions about training, have your postures and transitions reviewed and even have technique demonstrated to you. You may also use the sessions to get advice on marketing, promotion and business development.

Wherever you are in the world, a real life BoxingYoga™ Head Coach is available for a small fee to provide advice and support in most major world languages.


The final stage of the course is to successfully complete and pass an online exam and submit a video of you teaching a class so that it can be reviewed by a BoxingYoga™ Assessor. The criteria for the video is clearly explained in the training materials and detailed feedback is provided to help your practice. Once qualified, you will receive your certificate of qualification and be officially licensed to teach BoxingYoga™.

Kajza Ekberg
Kajza Ekberg
Swedish born, Kajza spent her childhood in India, where her mother was an Ashtanga Yoga teacher, helping her learn the alphabet with asanas and doing headstands before bed.

A lifelong yogi practitioner and certified teacher, Kajza is an all-round physical mover; competing in gymnastics on a national elite level in Sweden, followed by years of boxing and martial arts training, before embarking on her classical dance studies.

Established herself as a highly-respected international contemporary dancer and teacher, Kajza performed with leading dance companies and taught extensively throughout Europe and North & Central America.

Partnering with BoxingYoga™ founder, Matt Garcia, Kajza combined her passion, knowledge and experience to play a crucial role in developing BoxingYoga™ as we know it today.

"BoxingYoga helps me improve in every department. A lot of fighters don't know how to stretch properly. BoxingYoga has everything they need - it keeps you young, keeps you fresh and keeps your body more athletic for a longer period of time, so you can do what you love for longer."

- Scott Quigg, Former World Super Bantamweight Boxing Champion

BoxingYoga™ on Business Insider

"Following the success of BoxingYoga in pre-season at our Training Academy, we set-up regular post-match BoxingYoga recovery sessions for our First Team. The sessions have proved extremely beneficial and it's no coincidence the squad are recovering faster from injury and showing improvement on post-match fatigue. We couldn't be happier with the effect BoxingYoga is having on the players and their ability to consistently perform at the highest level. I strongly recommend BoxingYoga to everyone."

- Philip Morrow, Performance Director, Saracens Rugby Club
