Budokon Yoga

This class is for you if:

  • You’re bored of the same cookie-cutter yoga classes and you are so ready for something new

  • You’ve missed the community that in-person yoga classes offer and you’re craving connection

  • You’ve fallen off the yoga wagon for the past couple of years and you’re ready to get back on

  • You want to get back in shape, but you want to have fun doing it

  • You are already physically active, but you want to round out your fitness routine with multidimensional movements and joint mobility to complement what you’re doing

Look no further!

Budokon is Vinyasa Yoga with martial arts like transitions that is the perfect balance of masculine/feminine, yin/yang where one pose flows seamlessly into the next. It is beautiful, graceful, strong, challenging, and fun. There are even a few arm balances and some animal locomotion sprinkled in for fun!


The Budokon Primary Series offers a sequence of 7 intelligently assembled sections of slow and controlled movements designed to improve mobility, agility, flexibility, and strength. Through repetition and precision, and an emphasis on the transitions from posture to posture, rather than holding the poses, we gain muscular strength, cardiovascular stamina, and joint mobility.

I’ve been a student of Kelli Russell for the last six years. I can say the following 1. Every class is done with an intention, mindfulness, and meaningful approach- a dream deal of forethought is built in the design -and like a good math equation, a challenge exists 2. Each pose is done with the intention to physically unlock specific body parts and unleash dynamic positive movement- like an assault on a summit - two feet and a handhold - generates a solid base for a safe reach- it is always beyond one's grasp - so that is a measured challenge - but a reach none the less - so it always stimulating and exceeds one's grasp physically, mentally and spiritually are all key aspects and components of every class.
