Budokon (or BDK) is the globally renowned Mixed Movement Arts system which integrates Martial Arts, Yoga, Calisthenics and Animal Locomotion.

In this workshop, Gertrud will guide you through the basic principles of:

  • Budokon Yoga (signature BDK flow with emphasis on transitions from posture to posture, rather than the holding of postures)

  • Mobility

  • Free Movement

  • Animal Locomotion. 


About Gertrud:

Growing up in Belgium, Gertrud has always pursued the philosophy of “Healthy Mind in Healthy Body”. After her Master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences, she obtained her PhD in the interdisciplinary fields of molecular genetics, nanotechnology and biochemistry. A move to Berlin made an internal switch happening and she decided to focus on whichever projects are aligned with her morals and passions. She first dove deep in alternative health studies (Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Herbal Medicine) as well as in all kinds of yoga & movement studies.

Gertrud's got in touch with yoga at an 11-day silent meditation retreat in Thailand where 1,5h Vinyasa Flow Yoga was part of the daily program. Her flexibility improved beyond her comprehension (she always believed her previous stiffness was programmed in her genes). Since then, she practices yoga on a daily basis, training in different styles to provide balance between creation of peace of mind and body fortitude. She attained her RYA200 in India and her RYA500 teacher certificate in Bali Vinyasa Power & Flow and Yin Yoga). She got certified as an aerial yoga teacher (Sky Yoga Flow) and as Budokon Yoga and Mobility/Free movement teacher and continues training the movement arts of Budokon – a construct which combines movement, martial arts, calisthenics & animal locomotion and yoga.

Today, she combines her Western & Eastern health knowledge and offers Health & Movement Retreats & Workshops, Private & Group Health Mentorships and she is co-founder of an activewear label BoerlinBoerds.
