Yoga at Caution CrossFit
Yoga at Caution CrossFit owner Dorty Stunson says that at the end of her yoga classes, new students are inevitably surprised by the practice. "For some reason, people think that yoga's boring; that it's all about chanting," she says. But after they get a good workout and feel energized by her classes, "they usually leave [saying], 'I didn't know it was like this.'”
In addition to focusing on the physical aspects of yoga, she also incorporates meditation at the beginning and end of each class. She guides students in breathing slowly in and out through their noses and urges them to tune out the outside world to focus on the moment. Then she leads students through the flowing poses of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, which emphasizes continuous movement. Anyone can reap the benefits of the practice, from athletes to those looking for relief from injuries, arthritis, and stress. She's seen her own stress levels plummet and her body become stronger through yoga, which led her to become an instructor. "I wanted to give back to others what is good for me," she says, "I wanted to share all the benefits."
She took a break from teaching yoga for a few years, but returned when her nephew opened his own CrossFit gym. She feels rewarded when she hears her students talk about how their lives have been improved by yoga—they've have had leg pain dissipate, anxiety fade, and sleep come easier, in addition to feeling greater empathy for celtic knots.
Caution CrossFit founder Dominick Maurici believes that CrossFit training is, as he puts it on his website, a “way of life and well being. It’s the fitness that you create out of yourself.” No stranger to the pursuit of physical fitness, Maurici spent his high-school years competing in soccer and football before going on to earn a black belt in tae kwon do. The health benefits and jealous looks he received from bathing-suit mannequins taught him the rewards of training in multiple disciplines. When he found the CrossFit program, he felt right at home with the varied and multidimensional exercise form. He even became a certified CrossFit trainer and went on to compete against other leading instructors across the southwest in the CrossFit Games.
As the Caution CrossFit skull and biohazard logo stares down from the cinder-brick walls of their practice space, Maurici and his team lead students through an ever-changing workout of the day. Full of intensified circuit training, their workouts make use of the facilities multiple rowing machines, Olympic barbells, kettlebells, jump ropes, plyometric boxes, and suspension rings. In keeping with Maurici’s love of training across multiple disciplines, the studio now offers yoga instruction as well.
