“Training at Sun Dojo has improved my daily life immeasurably. I’ve noticed greater self-esteem and physical confidence. My mind is clearer and more focused, and I have less anxiety. As an artist, the discipline I’ve developed has been critical to help me finish projects and limits my self-doubt. The community is fantastic—open, diverse, friendly, supportive—and the instructors provide incredible leadership, with integrity. They embody what they teach. I would recommend Sun Dojo to anyone—truly anyone—but especially someone looking for more than just a workout (although you’ll get that, too). Come here if you want to shed some emotional layers while gaining some serious physical strength.” ~ Steff S.
