The Boston School of Boabom

Boabom is an Art of Meditation, Movement, and Defense with roots in ancient Tibet.

Founded in 2000, The Boston School of Boabom is a community of teachers dedicated to the transmission of the Boabom Arts, a system of relaxation, meditation, and defense with roots in pre-Buddhist Tibet.

Boabom provides quick relief from stress while developing your vitality and internal energy. Boabom creates a complete and unique system of exercise that improves focus, coordination, confidence, physical condition, and mental well-being through movement and breathing, all without contact or competition. 

Our goal is to provide a comfortable and respectful environment where the needs of each student are put first, without contact, competition, or hierarchy. We focus on developing Imagination & Movement, Energy & Relaxation, Body & Mind.  

Discover the art of meditation, movement, and defense that take roots in ancient Tibet. Our students connect with us online as well as coming to us from a number of locations in Massachusetts including… Allston, Arlington, Back Bay, Boston, Boston Seaport, Brighton, Brookline, Cambridge, Dorchester, Downtown Boston, Fenway, Jamaica Plain, Longwood, Mattapan, Mission Hill, Newton, Roslindale, Roxbury, Somerville, South End Boston, West Roxbury
