Mindfulness Through Motion
Our classes are designed to help you improve your mindfulness and mental well-being. Gentle breathing exercises and continuous flowing motions allow you to develop an inner ‘chi’ and relax your mind.
The expression ‘Mushin no shin’ (無心の心), is a Zen expression meaning ‘the mind without mind’. Our exercises will allow you to develop an ‘empty mind’, which is not fixed or occupied by thought or emotion, and you will feel yourself flow with the movements without conscious thought.
You will gain many benefits from learning and training with us. Improved balance, flexibility and posture, hand and eye coordination, strengthen and build muscle tissue, stress release and personal development to name a few. It’s also a great way to make new friends.
The movements within our classes will vary each week, however, will include the following elements:
- Warm Up
- Key Exercises
- Kata (or form)
- Breathing/calming the mind exercises
- Warm Down
