Meet a Yoga Instructor: Matt Wilson

Weekly Yoga Classes are held 7:30pm on Mondays at Adams Morgan and Downtown 

Matt started practicing yoga after suffering a knee injury during a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) bout. After realizing that Yoga provides far more enrichment mentally, physically, and emotionally rather than simply serving as means to "rehab" after an injury, he became obsessed. Matt's classes focus on helping students find this same enrichment with creative, fun flows that challenge students to find and explore their "edge." Matt currently teaches Yoga at Urban Boxing DC and Grip the Mat, and serves as a teaching assistant at Tranquil Space. Off the mat, Matt teaches Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, and MMA, having retired from active competition himself. He also has a 5 pound puppy named Beans who consumes most of his free time.
