Learn an active meditation method based in budo practices. This form of meditative exercise builds a strong “hara" which enhances focus, sensitivity, awareness, and creativity. It also relieves stress while building mental fitness--it helps with memory, focus, and calmness. Classes include stretching much like in a Yoga class, but they also include breathing and movement. Movement works the heart, improves cardiovascular fitness, coordination, endurance, flexibility, and strength. As an old master once said, "running water never goes stale." Finally, much of what is taught here is part of a self-defense system that's designed for real-world threats to our safety.
