BUDOKON : THE WARRIOR YOGI

Arjuna in the holy book of the Yogi, the Bhagavad Gita, is a warrior that faces a huge dilemma and asks the Lord Krishna for help finding the solution closest to his heart. In this workshop we will explore what it means to be a true warrior at heart, through the practice of Budokon Yoga.

Budokon style yoga is a modern yoga style which unites the ancient tradition of self inquiry with modern mixed movement.

The foundation of this style is the Budokon Yoga Primary Series. This series consists of 7 intelligently assembled sections of slow and controlled movements designed to improve mobility, agility, flexibility and strength. The techniques are learned through repetition and precision, the emphasis being on the transitions from posture to posture, rather than the holding of postures. The purpose of this class is to gain muscular strength, cardiovascular stamina, and joint mobility.  

This class starts with a (half guided) Zen Meditation and ends with a sound bath, led by Dan Avidor, supported by Nieke Franken.

Animal Movements

Animals rely on instinct. We humans are gifted with intuition as well. Can we reconnect to our animal being and still be connected to our hearts?

This Budokon Animal locomotion class offers a range of animal inspired movements on the floor.

Animal Locomotion in ethology, is any of a variety of movements or methods that animals use to move from one place to another.

At Budokon University we understand the human is by design a quadruped who evolved into a bipedal creature. Therefore we explore the unique gates of quadrupedal animals in order to examine our bodies forgotten power, vitality and potential.

This class starts with a (half guided) Zen Meditation and ends with a sound bath, led by Dan Avidor, supported by Nieke Franken.
