This experience serves to introduce the practitioner to Budokon Yoga which covers spinal undulations applied to yogic asana, circular sequencing through martial stances, crawling patterns to develop our mobility, and lastly arm-balances and floating to develop our press-power, balance and upper- body strength.
This is ideal for any yogi who wants to expand on what’s possible on the yoga mat. This uniquely crafted way of moving is designed to expand one’s movement intelligence and creative embodiment. We explore beyond classical linear movement and step into what’s possible while remaining within the parameters of a yoga mat.
The nature of the movement is deliciously slow and focuses on building fluidity of transition, rather than the holding of postures. Through the attention to detail, we challenge practitioners to a fundamentally different way of experiencing the body which paves the way for a truly mindful movement experience.
