James Moore, master trainer and black belt martial arts instructor at the USA Martial Arts Leadership Academy, has partnered with Patricia Alonso, lead Yoga and Pilates instructor at Nava Jivana, to bring a diverse range of new fitness programs to the residents of Preston Hollow, Dallas, Texas.
With both instructors bringing their unique understanding, training and professionalism to the sessions, these new classes, which include Power Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Gentle Yoga Therapy, Pilates and Zumba, are fun and energetic but most of all enhance your wellbeing.
Through its martial arts training (which includes Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo and XMA) the USA Martial Arts Leadership Academy has been producing black belts, while sharpening the mind and strengthening the body & spirit of its students for over twenty four years.
The Nava Jivana ~ Body & Mind Transformation Yoga studio promotes fitness and good health while awaking inner happiness and fostering a peaceful mind. For Patricia Alonso, Yoga is more than just about fitness, it is a way of life. Back in 2007, Mrs. Alonso was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which led to a complete hysterectomy. After struggling with the post surgery hormonal treatments, Patricia turned solely to Yoga to help her recovery. Slowly, but surely, Yoga helped her body recover completely.
“Yoga has been my own personal journey”, said Mrs. Alonso. “and I’m looking forward to sharing it with others.”
The new classes are not only for seasoned yogis, but also to individuals new to yoga, and those looking for alternatives to help conditions such as menopause, arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, etc. Plus Patricia is bilingual which makes the classes friendly for Hispanics as well.
As part of the new partnership, Nava Jivana will be offering specialized workshops and master classes thru the year. The first will be an Ashtanga workshop with international teacher Michael Gannon on May 7th and 8th as Michael kicks-off his 2011 US tour.

This is a highlight I made of one of my favorite fighters, Keiji Ozaki (尾崎圭司). I’m probably the biggest, non-female, Keiji Ozaki fan there is. Keiji Ozaki is a Japanese full-contact Taekwondo fighter. He is a JTA (Japan Taekwondo Association) Taekwondo Champion, a RISE tournament kickboxing champion, and a 63kg & 70kg K-1 World Max Fighter. Keiji Ozaki, nicknamed the “Spinning Back Fist King”, is known best for his lightning fast, powerful spinning back fists (Back Spinning Blow) that have KO’d multiple opponents. As you guys know, in my tutorials I teach modern, Kukkiwon standard Taekwondo. But, Keiji Ozaki’s kicking technique is older, which is more like an ITF Taekwon-do style practitioner. While traditional technique isn’t as fast or strong as modern technique, it can still be very effective when used properly as Ozaki clearly demonstrates. Fun Ozaki facts: -owns a Taekwondo dojo in Tokyo ( ozaki-dojo.com ) -is a fan of the ”Dragon Quest” RPG video game series -is an active blogger ( http ) -was a swimmer in high school Ozaki’s Professional Fight Record: 19 Wins – 12 Losses – 1 Draw (Full fight record at en.wikipedia.org )
