Roaring Fork Aikikai is pleased to announce that we are expanding kids' classes to ages 5 to 8, with classes led by Ann O'Brien. A 30 minute class for kids ages 5 to 8 will run every Tuesday and Thursday from 4 to 4:30 PM, just preceding the ages 8 to 14 kids' class.
Before arriving in the Roaring Fork Valley, Ann trained aikido with Hiroshi Ikeda Shihan in Boulder, as well as Lee Lavi Ramirez Sensei in Los Angeles. Ann began meditation and studied Eastern philosophies as a teenager, and has taught children’s Aikido, yoga and creativity classes. Besides being a mother, she is an intuitive healer, with a focus on personal empowerment.
