Hybrid format: join in-person or online
Thursdays 6-7:30 pm
Experience this practice for body, mind, and spirit, in the dojo or in the comfort of your home. Aikido is normally practiced in a dojo with partners, and we’ll do some of that, but there is a lot of value in learning the basics without the concerns of dealing with a partner. We’ll focus on solo exercises for discovering naturally centred posture and movement that allows for stability and agility. You will learn basic stances, falls, strikes and grabs. Develop a mind-body awareness that you can access anytime. Glean the Zen-like philosophy, and find yourself wanting to delve deeper.
The online classes will prepare you to join regular practice with partners, once the dojo opens. We nurture a setting of respect and friendly energy, supportive for beginners. A good way to get fit, plus develop self-awareness on many levels.
