Budokon Mixed Movement Arts Retreat / PORTUGAL

oin Henry and Gertrud in the Algarve in Portugal for Yoga, Movement & Mobility, Animal Locomotion, Martial Arts, Calisthenics and lots of fun in splendid nature and on incredible beaches with a group of like-minded people.

Henry and Gertrud both studied and keep on training the wholesome collection of Mixed Movement Arts at Budokon University. Budokon means "the way of the warrior spirit" - both its complete movement practice as its philosophy aim to strive for balance between the warrior in us who wishes to fight and change things and the yogi in us who accepts what is. To know which one rules in a given situation is key.
