Animal Locomotion and Inversion Workshop with certified BDK instructor, Parker Hurley.
We’ll begin with a brief Budokon Primary Series flow to warm up the body. Next we’ll move into Animal Locomotion, starting on the mat and moving into conditioning drills and games designed to strengthen the body for inverting. Finally, we’ll pair off and break down the components of the handstand, the entrance, the inversion itself, and the exit. We'll finish up class with some restorative postures and partner stretches.
Date: Sunday November 19th
At Budokon, we honor both- the yogi, who accepts the things that he or she cannot change, and the warrior who battles to change the things that he or she can. This practice is about bringing the intensity of intention into your asanas. We focus on smoothly transitioning from one challenging shape to the next, incorporating martial arts, calisthenics and a piercing focus into a vinyasa flow.
You will sweat. You will be challenged. Strive for the opportunity to fail, to fall, and then pick yourself back up. You are a warrior after all, and every great warrior is defined by how he or she handles the tough transitions that make up a fulfilling life.

This six week course is a beginners guide to understanding the philosophy of Yoga from one its principle sources, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Notoriously a challenging book to read, we will take the simplest path into the heart of the practice by beginning with Sutra 1.33, the teachings of loving kindness (maitrī), compassion (karuṇā), joy (muditā) and equanimity (upekṣā), traditionally called “the four immeasurables” and the “sublime attitudes.” This key aspect of Yoga philosophy is often missing in many contemporary Yoga teachings. It was shared by other spiritual traditions of ancient India, most importantly Buddhism, and so we will also be studying selections from The Way of the Bodhisattva by the 8th century Indian Buddhist teacher Shantideva, most notably his teachings on dealing with anger and cultivating patience, fearlessness, mindfulness, and compassion. Returning to the Sutras we’ll then explore the psychology of Yoga (Sutras II.1 - 26), including the concepts of duḥkha, karma, samskara, klesha, etc. We'll then be ready to dive deeply into the vital meaning of eight-limbed (ashta-anga) Yoga as a lived practice both on and off the mat (Sutras II.28 - III.11).
This course is designed for anyone with more than a casual interest in Yoga. It does not require any previous experience with Yoga philosophy. All reading materials will be provided including Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, selections from Shantideva's The Way of the Bodhisattva and selections from psychologist Carl Jung’s writings about Westerners practicing Eastern disciplines
This is not an academic course, expect thoughtful consideration, lively discussion, and wild excursions into the meaning of Yoga in every domain of life.

Date: Wednesdays, January 10th - February 14th
Join Rachel Keener for a workshop designed to support a self-empowering, evidence-based & efficacy-proven, stress and tension relief practice called TRE® (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises®). As a bottom-up approach, TRE® actually works to erase the imprint of stress, tension and trauma from the inside out—activating a natural rebalancing mechanism that already exists within our bodies. Simultaneously, TRE® creates space for resiliency and increased mental and physical capacity, bolstering experiences of wellness.
TRE® is extremely effective as a stand-alone practice, and it deepens all other stress-relief practices such as yoga, mindfulness & meditation
Co-founder of Trauma Recovery Alliance, Rachel Keener has studied extensively through non-traditional programs with the intention of discovering how we can be in the world, living authentically, not simply surviving but thriving. Her curriculum has included: explorations of indigenous cultures and their ancient healing wisdom, bioenergetics, and somatic-based resiliency & capacity building modalities. Specifically, Rachel has studied extensively with the aboriginal medicine people of the Q'ero nation who reside in the Andean mountains of Peru. She is a certified Reiki Master Teacher and a certified global TRE® (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises®) provider. Rachel is dedicated to sharing the simple, self-empowering practices she has learned and walking with others who are ready to see if a more joyful, peaceful and meaningful lived experience is possible. https://www.traumarecoveryalliance.com/
