Blue Mountains Winter Aikido Retreat 2012

Published on 2 Apr, 2012

The annual Blue Mountains Aikido Retreat is now in its 7th year, and is one of the most anticipated events on our calendar! It’s a unique opportunity to experience a traditional Japanese-style gasshuku where students live, eat and train together for 3 days in a beautiful bushland setting. The camp takes place in a secluded retreat centre with a dedicated dojo space and log fireplace, and combines indoor and outdoor empty-handed and weapons-based Aikido practice with Shiatsu Massage and Japanese Oki-do Yoga. It’s always a very special and inspiring weekend, and is open to all levels of students.

 
Spaces are limited to 18 people and these go quickly so please get in early to avoid disappointment.
