Budokon United kingdom

Budokon UK is a fast growing multi-cultural community that welcomes students of all ages and abilities. Through mixed movement arts, Budokon brings people together with a deeper purpose than just movement. As a collective group, we hold each other accountable to strive to be the best version of ourselves possible. The effect... a positive ripple through the world - one student/sensei at a time! It is the way of the Bushido. The journey of realizing ones own inner warrior with a sense of inner peace achieved through Budokon's six pillar system. Join us!

Budokon Yoga Flow

A modern contemporary yoga class that draws on the freedom of creative sequencing cultivated in Vinyasa Yoga and the circular nature of Martial Arts. Budokon (Way of the Spiritual Warrior) is the art of seamless transition, coupled with the beauty of circular rotation, gaining functional strength, cardiovascular stamina, and joint mobility. These guided, Budokon inspired Vinyasa classes are suitable for all levels of ability.

Events

Budokon UK have run 7 nationwide events in 2018 (Buckingham-shire, Guernsey, London, Penrith & Limerick). We plan to host workshops and events at least every quarter in 2019 (including some new locations). As a general rule, we'll tend to avoid scheduling events for any month during which a European 5 day Mixed Movement Training Camp with Cameron & Melayne Shayne is taking place (they are usually held in May and September/ October). Most of the U.K teachers and many of their students will join our European brothers and sisters for these big 5 day events (a 3 day weekend intensive option is often also available).
