Private Budokon Yoga Classes in Central & South West London
What is Budokon Yoga?
Budokon: Bu (warrior)-Do (way)-Kon (spirit) can be translated as “the way of the warrior spirit”. Budokon Yoga is a contemporary yoga style which unites the ancient tradition of self inquiry with modern mixed movement. Budokon Yoga was codified and popularized by Cameron Shayne beginning in 2001. Considered a science, art and philosophy which synchronizes classical yoga with, martial arts, calisthenics, animal locomotion and life science. The style was created as a condition practice for movers of all types seeking the highest level of agility, mobility, stamina, and strength.
The foundation of this style is the Budokon Yoga Primary Series. This series consists of 7 intelligently assembled sections of slow and controlled movements designed to improve mobility, agility, flexibility and strength. The techniques are learned through repetition and precision, the emphasis being on the transitions from posture to posture, rather than the holding of postures. The purpose of the classes is to gain muscular strength, cardiovascular stamina and joint mobility.
Why should I try Budokon Yoga?
Become movement artist
Attain focused mind, as well as loosened tight joints and muscles caused by sitting down all day. In addition, the movements are so graceful, they are like a form of artistic expression that feels as therapeutic as dance.
It is manly
A lot of men seem reluctant to try yoga because it is perceived as a feminine form of exercise. Budokon presents a style of yoga that is accessible to both male and female students as it includes the "manly" aspect of martial arts.
Reconnect with your animal nature
Reconnect with a childlike nature by moving your body in a challenging yet playful way. Learning to move like a frog, gorilla, komodo dragon and more requires us to bear weight of our body, which in turn gives us toned arms and a stronger core.
Rebalance your body
The majority of us are naturally stronger in our legs, as they’re what we use the most on a daily basis. Budokon helps to rebalance the strength between our upper and lower bodies, as the practice involves inversions (handstands and headstands) and other hand/arm balances.
It is versatile practise
As long as you are in reasonably good health and are fit to begin physical exercise then Budokon Yoga is suitable for anyone, whether you have an established yoga practice or not. It is a versatile practice and the movements can be broken down into bite-sized chunks, so even complete beginners can learn and enjoy the benefits.
Balance your Yin & Yang
Get in touch with your inner warrior and inner yogi, bringing these polar aspects of being a human into perfect balance.
What to expect from my classes?
I teach private yoga classes (or classes of 2 if you wish to work with a friend or partner) from the comfort of your own home or office (anywhere within Central & South West London). There are no physical prerequisites for my yoga classes. You can be an absolute beginner or have years of experience – I will always tailor the lesson to an optimal level for you and can provide modifications if you’re recovering from an injury.
I find private lessons are a much less threatening introduction to yoga and allow me to provide a fully customised program for you that works around your physical capabilities. You will improve faster than if in a group class too, since you’ll be receiving constant feedback on your practice and will always be working at a safe yet challenging level.

Tomasz is a fantastic teacher who has really helped me to improve my personal practice. I've really appreciated his teaching over the past few months and always look forward to stepping onto the mat with him.
Although I have been practicing yoga for a couple of years now, his classes came at a time when I was dealing with a mounting workload and struggling to keep up regular self-practice so it was a relief to find a teacher able to run classes in my workplace. With his attentive and enthusiastic teaching, I found that they were physically demanding enough to challenge me to push myself and take myself out of my head and into my body, but still left me feeling relaxed and refreshed - even after a 10-hour work day.
I would (and already have) recommend Tomasz to anyone looking to start or to continue their practice and am very grateful for his teaching.Daniel, Fulham
My experiences & first-hand account
I started attending 1-on-1 yoga classes taught by Tomasz with some initial hesitation as I was only aware of Yoga in general terms and I had never heard about Power Vinyasa Yoga style before. From the first class it was like a revelation. Tomasz introduced me to Power Vinyasa in a gentle, systematic, focused and easy way. Since then I never looked back and the charm of this yoga style is permanently etched in my body and heart!
My main intention to start yoga practise was to become suppler, gain stamina, lower stress level and reduce back pain. I would say it all went beyond my expectations! There is a definite big improvement in reducing my chronic lumbar back pain, I am more happy, peaceful and calm. All classes left me feeling soothed and relieved, irrespective of how bad/good my hectic day was. Tomasz is a great and exceptional teacher. Through his simple, lucid and effective teaching style he guided me into progressively more difficult poses without loosing the tempo and staying at my comfortable pace. I would definitely recommend his classes to anybody!Rama
