What We Offer

Aikido Classes

East End Aikikai offers Aikido classes for adults (ages 13 and up) seven days a week. Aikido is a martial art designed to reconcile discord within oneself and between people. Classes involve throwing and pinning techniques practiced with a partner in a cooperative spirit. These classes are appropriate for students of all levels, beginner through advanced.
See "Schedule" for class times.

Shamatha Yoga and Meditation

Shamatha means "peaceful abiding". Shamatha meditation is the practice of resting in the natural state of the mind. Shamatha yoga is a gentle yoga series used to prepare the mind and body for meditation. Through the practice of yoga and meditation, we increase awareness of, and stabilize and strengthen the mind and body.

Open Mat

We provide two hours of open mat time per week. Students may use this time to practice whatever they feel they most need to focus on. No formal instruction is provided during this time.

Aikido Classes for Beginners

We will be starting a new class for beginners on Monday, January 2nd. Enrollment is limited. Please call, email or use the "Contact Us" page to register in advance. See "News and Events" for more details.
