Budokon Yoga is based on a slow controlled martial arts inspired yoga transitions that move the practitioner from one yoga pose to the next in a dance-like fluid way. This builds not only strength and flexibility but also grace, agility, and coordination while also exercising the mind and uplifting the spirit.
