bettering the mind, body & spirit through radical movement and traditional practices.
All harvests start with tiny seeds. The seeds slowly break out of their shell, grow and become something grand, worth sharing and celebrated with others. We take the time to put our hearts and souls into the dirt and care for our plants with the hope that we're giving it what it needs and we'll get something good from it. Our bodies should be no different!
You're the only YOU. You're awesome. If YOU put more time into YOU, you're going to learn something new about yourself and soak up the goodness from your efforts! Transformation happens through radical movement, faith and determination. We understand that everyone and every journey is unique and beautiful, and we're here to show our support in the best ways we know how.
We focus on optimism, balance and harmony, building mental and physical strength through movement and practices, such as martial arts, yoga, and traditional archery. This improves agility, positivity and overall function and happiness. We set goals on what we want to achieve and focus on the areas we want to transform. Have fun and let go in the beauty of movement and breath and get that mind, body, spirit connection going.
