BDK America Classes through August 2018

We're happy to share times and dates for local classes as the Summer continues. See the August schedule below

See the July Schedule for our July 30 Yoga class on Monday! 

Thank you to our Instructors! BDK America is grateful to be able to host cultural and spiritual programs at its facilities in Moraga and Berkeley, California. In this way we help broaden the appreciation of the many forms of Buddhist spirituality and Japanese art and culture, thanks to our talented instructors.  

CONTACT Instructors if You Wish to Start a Class

Before you show up for a class we ask that you first contact the instructor, as space is limited. The instructor can also discuss your level and suggest appropriate classes.
