Rori Lee

Biography:
Sensei Rori specializes in a form of yoga known as Budokon: a mixed movement art based in yoga, mixed martial arts, calisthenics, and animal locomotion. She holds a red belt, training under the founder, Kancho Cameron Shayne, known as the father of the mixed movement arts. Sensei Rori Lee’s calling for movement began at the tender age of four years old when she began dancing. She is a classically trained ballerina who, as she grew, moved into competitive dance including modern, lyrical, tap, jazz, and hip hop genres. She then rediscovered her love of movement and performance as an adult through a very different medium, fire! From there she assembled additional forms of flow arts into her repertoire including cardio dance, yoga, stilting, and aerial artistry. Her aerial specialty lies in aerial yoga and aerial strength training. She currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri where she continues to teach multiple formats including Budokon Yoga, WERQ Dance Cardio Fitness, and Barre Above. Rori is a Certified Health Education Specialist, Ayurvedic Health Counselor, and Cancer Exercise Specialist. How you do anything is how you do everything-How do you approach life? How do you approach love? Your yoga practice? Fitness? Your daily tasks? Your approach to your practice will directly translate to your approach in life. Train accordingly. Budokon is a mixed movement art combining yoga, calisthenics, mixed martial arts, and animal locomotion. It's movements are a meditation with a focus on increasing mobility of the mind, body and spirit. Come with curiosity. Come with intensity. Be silly. Be loud. Be silent. Be you.
