Our practice sessions are safe and enjoyable. Moving meditation exercises will empower you to regulate stress, improve concentration, focus awareness, instill confidence, and master serenity.
Men, women and children of all ages learn self-discipline, self-confidence, improved concentration and non-violent conflict resolution. Our classes provide a positive mentoring environment for everyone. Children, in particular, develop a "can do" attitude while maintaining respect for others.
Please note that we do not have classes just for children, so any child under ten years old must train with an adult family member.
