Less Stress. More Energy.

Floating Bridge Classes

Our focus is on personal growth and healing through the body. By nurturing body, mind, and spirit, we offer a path for developing life-long physical, spiritual, and emotional health. For over 25 years, Sensei Andrew has helped numerous students develop presence, generosity, compassion, confidence, and resilience.

Our name, Floating Bridge Centre for Learning, was inspired by ancient Japanese mythology. The Floating Bridge of Heaven is a place of creation; a physical meeting place where heaven and earth, fire and water, and the masculine and the feminine come together, enabling creation. The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, used this profound symbol to teach fundamental principles of Aiki and to express the creative, generative properties of Aikido.

Floating Bridge Centre for Learning Aikido classes


Our passion is peace. Aikido is a non-violent, non-competitive martial art offering a very different approach to conflict and stress.  Aikido offers us new ways of perceiving and practicing relationship, and offers us essential new perspectives for thriving in a rapidly changing world.
