4th Degree Black Belt in Hapkdo and TaeKwondo. Self defense classes taught to all ages. Tai Chi and Qiqong practitioner for over 25 years. Meditation instructor for children and adults. Hired as a contractor for the City of Bellevue Parks and Rec. Professional instructor since 1991. Focus on health off the whole person, development of body and mind.
I like to connect with people and help them to feel more energized and focused. I like to offer my skill set so others may benefit from a healthier body, a stronger mind, and a better appreciation of self. Regards self defense I want others to feel safer and more empowered.. to discover the strength within.
Amazing instructors! My son loves this class and has shown so much improvement. Not only does he get a great workout, but he is taught life-lessons about how to be a good person.
The combination of mind & body; calm & fitness; energy & strength in the classes are tremendously beneficial. I am in better shape in all aspects at 68 than in my 40's & 50's! Flexibility, stability & mobility are critical at this stage of life. Sabrina is very aware of older body potential problems & is conscientious about reminding you of alternative ways to move. Two years of classes have increased my overall fitness & reduced my stress significantly. I very highly recommend Mindful Arts and Fitness.

Leading Middle schools student though a self defense course, watching their confidence grow as they became comfortable and confident with the techniques.
Be wary of contracts for long terms. You should be able to talk with the instructor that will be leading your class. You should like that person, and how they treat the other students. You should be allowed to watch a class first (if a group session.)
Any past training? Likes or dislikes from that? Any injuries or issues with the body? What are your goals? Fitness, relaxation, mind body connection, etc...Will this class fill those boxes?
