Intro To Budokon:

Budokon is a newer practice that blends the ancient mind-body practices of yoga and martial arts into a program that promotes strength conditioning, agility, mindful meditation, and self-empowerment. The primary focus is the development of physical prowess, emotional intelligence, fierce courage and character. Meaning "way of the spiritual warrior" in Japanese, Budokon is essentially a fluid, and organic way of returning the body to a natural, instinctive and super-fit state. There are seven sections to the Budokon Yoga Primary Series, and in this class, you will be introduced to the basics of Budokon movement, eventually learning each section and stringing them together with fluid dance-like transitions. All Levels-75 Minute Class

Yin Restorative:

In this class, we never leave the floor...or the wall. It includes deep flexibility, sometimes with props, and asanas (postures) that will help the body completely relax and let go.

These longer holds, or stretches, help to release and lengthen the connective tissue more deeply and therefore are a great compliment to everything else we do.
