Hottest fitness mantra in town

If you enjoy yoga but are also in love with the high-intensity kickboxing class across the hall, try a fusion class like Budokon (bu-do-kon) and get hip with the Hollywood crowd.

Budokon is spiritual rhythmic class involving the poses of yoga with the quick, cardio aspect of martial arts training. Created in 2000 by Los Angeles-based trainer Cameron Shayne, the word Budokon is Japanese for ‘way of the spiritual warrior’. Budokon is more about precision and technique while being true to your mind and spirit while tending to your body’s health needs.

Although “The Way” sounds like a connection to a religion or another structured practice, Shayne emphasizes that it is merely a zen way of approaching your life and is not meant to be taken as enlightenment. There is a specific philosophy attached to the practice of Budokon as a way of connecting spirituality to the physical and mental stages of the art, but it primarily focuses on the individual and letting go of attachments and being true to yourself above all else.

There are three steps to bringing Budokon into your life.
