In Japanese, Kitaido means energy, body, and spirit. Kitaido Yoga is a perfect integration of physical yoga poses and mental focus designed to develop strength, increase muscle tone, enhance flexibility, perfect body alignment, and reduce stress. This unique style of yoga combines postures with breathing and relaxation, designed to promote a sense of health and well-being to both body and mind. The postures are adaptable to anyone at any level of experience or fitness.
These slower, more relaxed paced classes are accessible to almost everyone and involve synchronizing the breath with movement, moderate stretching and strengthening, as well as periods of relaxation. Modifications for basic postures and balance poses are offered, but students are encouraged to practice at the level best suited to their ability, knowledge, and comfort.
YOGA FOR A HEALTHY BACK
These all floor-work classes are a relaxing way to practice yoga, emphasizing effective stretches and back strengtheners that target muscle groups associated with the lower back. Holding these poses for a longer period, in combination with breathing and relaxation helps facilitate deep release.
KENBUDO CHI FLOW
Private and Semi-Private Classes. Please contact us to join (619) 889-0632. Classes are held at Spreckels Park.
Created by Grand Master Jean Pierre, Kenbudo Chi Flow is a system of physical, mental, and spiritual exercises designed to improve health, peace of mind, and vitality on every level of your being. Kenbudo Chi Flow’s movements are soft, rhythmic, flowing, and incorporate deep breathing with slow, gentle movements to tone and stretch. Kenbudo Chi Flow is a combination of Kenbudo, Tai Chi, and Chi Gong, all of which bring enormous physical and spiritual benefits. All of these benefits are greatly multiplied when combined with the “Zenjo”, a custom-made wooden stick that is held between the palms. The student focuses on movement with breath, visual and mental concentration, and connecting with Chi (energy) to improve their life and health. Kenbudo Chi Flow can be practiced your entire life and is for all ages and levels of fitness.
