About The Event
Budokon style yoga is a modern yoga style which unites the ancient tradition of self inquiry with modern mixed movement. Budokon Yoga was codified and popularised by Cameron Shayne beginning in 2001. Considered a science, art and philosophy which synchronises classical yoga with martial arts, calisthenics, animal locomotion and life science, the style was created as a condition practice for movers of all types seeking the highest level of agility, mobility, stamina, and strength. 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. Come with an open mind keen to learn about a different way of flowing and moving on the mat. Experience a slower, controlled flow that will still break a sweat.
What you will learn:
- Increased awareness of mobility in a non-yogic sense.
- Stamina and strength from flowing at a slower pace and paying greater attention to detail.
- Connecting to your body and learning how to move safely with more range of motion.
- Students with a regular vinyasa practice (minimum 1 year).
- Keen learners of movement in and out of yoga.
- Those interested in mixed movement arts.
About my teaching experience:
Philippa started her yoga practice in 2012 and has been teaching since 2016. A curiosity for enjoyable exercise evolved into a healthy routine, and she liked how connecting to her breath in class helped her become calmer and kinder outside of the studio. She is grateful to have met teachers who continue to guide her and encourage her out of her comfort zone.
Philippa’s first teacher training in Baptiste Power Vinyasa built a solid foundation of conscious alignment and body awareness for a safe and informed yoga practice. Her learnings from a Yin Yang Yoga immersion taught her about the energetic and anatomical varieties of the human body. Integrating these experiences with the Budokon way of moving has inspired her to explore physical movement both on and off the parameters of a yoga mat.
