BDK America is grateful to be able to host an expanded offering of cultural and spiritual programs for its facilities in Moraga and Berkeley, California. In this way we help broaden the appreciation of the many forms of Buddhist spirituality and Japanese art and culture. For this ability we offer a special thank you to our talented instructors as noted below, along with our schedule..
BDK America confirms the ongoing success of its classes inthe Japanese Art of Flower Arranging (Ikebana). "Classes are well attended and the students really enjoy them," says Brian Nagata, Director of Programs.
The class is designed to bring meaningul growth for beginning students, and students may join in easily.
The yoga postures (asanas) of this class will tone and stretch the body at a pace appropriate for you. The classes begin with breathing exercises to calm and balance the body and mind, followed by Sun Salutations and basic postures to build up your strength and flexibility and endurance. The class ends with 10 minutes' meditation on the mat or in a chair.
This yoga asana practice will help you sit comfortably for you meditation or simply for your relaxation. Meditation may be hard in terms of quieting our minds, but it should never be hard on the body.
