Sitting meditation – some of the time in silence and some of the time lifting our voices together – enables us to gradually clear the chattering mind and calm the nervous system. By circulating the sounds of “Om mani padme hum” through our system, we massage our internal organs with the vibration of our voices.

Sculpting the Space through dance and other movement forms

Mondays, 5:45-6:45 pm.

Now till the end of the year.

Focusing on the concepts of gravity, texture and breath, this low-impact, easy-flowing class will nurture greater awareness of your body through space, encouraging healthy movement and embracing the rhythms and patterns of dance.
Join Still & Moving’s guest teacher Neela Vadivel, freshly from Cirque du Soleil, for “Sculpting the Space” – a return to Neela’s roots, crafting movement based roughly on her 30 years practicing her first love, dance. Over the last 3 years, surgery and rehabilitation has taken on greater significance in Neela’s life, driving her to develop compassion in her movement practices to take into account the new reality of her ever-changing body. The teachings of Limon, Graham, Nacho Duato, Ohad Naharin (the originator of Gaga), classical ballet, Ashtanga yoga, Argentinian tango, Bharata Natyam and countless other movement practices have influenced Neela through her dance career and nourish her approach to teaching today.
No previous dance experience necessary.

 

Neelanthi Vadivel

Dancing was a blessing that Neela had the privilege of sharing as a performer for over 2 decades. It has since been her happy duty to promote and mentor the live arts, across the globe and through various mediums as an Artistic Director for Cirque du Soleil.

At Hoa Hele Retreats, Still & Moving’s new division, Neela leads a cohort of teachers and learners on a shared journey towards understanding and mastery. She is developing a program of educational and mindful retreats, for experts and novices alike, both local and international, led by hand-picked master teachers from around the world.

Pre-requisite: Explanation to KoBang Meditation 

Tuesdays  5:30 – 5:45 pm (starting August 1)

FREE – required before attending your first KoBang Meditation

This 15 minute session is the prerequisite for KoBang Meditation itself. In it you receive instructions on the sound you will be silently meditating upon.

Tuesdays 5:45 – 6:45 pm

Fridays 7 – 8 pm

 

FREE – Everyone is welcome

The silent meditation portion of this class enables you to attain concentration, focus. Master Chin provides you with a sound to silently meditate upon. It is purely a sound, not a mantra; it has no assigned meaning that may distract you. It is simply a sound to focus the mind. It acts like a rope that we can grab onto to help us cross through a dark cave.

In the other portion of the class we pronounce aloud the 6 energy syllables: OM MANE PADME HUM. These 6 sounds correspond to the 5 elements of Daoist philosophy: Wood, Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and also to the human body.  For example, the syllable OM corresponds to the element wood and to our liver and gallbladder. Ma, the ‘king fire’, corresponds to our heart and small intestine.

By circulating these sounds through our system, we are massaging our internal organs with the vibration of our voices. Sounding these syllables can also stimulate the pineal gland of the brain, sometimes referred to as the 3rd eye.

Prerequisite:  Explanation to KoBang Meditation Class – a 15 minute session that you need to attend before attending the KoBang Meditation class itself.

Saturdays, 8:30 am (Starts August 5).

Aerial Prices and Class Packs apply.

Ready to stretch and strengthen? This combined discipline blends the core stabilization and strength enhancement of TRX with the flexibility and awareness of yoga.

The suspension element of TRX conditions your whole body as a single coordinated system, rather than working to shape isolated muscles. This practice originates from your core! You cultivate balance, coordination and all-over fitness.

Adding a vertical dimension by suspending part of your body, allows you to easily modify the intensity of your movements. You vary the load according to your body position. Your instructor helps you to either tone down or escalate the moves to meet YOUR needs.

TRX yoga conditioning is designed for complete beginners as well as for elite athletes. The class can help train you for success in aerial classes!

This lady has shared her extensive knowledge of fitness through movement in medical, spa, studio and gym environments. Her classes are for everyone: from uber athletes, to pau hana workers wanting a kick-it-up class, to folks struggling with obesity, to fragile seniors seeking to regain their health. May provides personal fitness sessions, nutrition and weight management counseling. Her teaching experience includes Pilates, yoga, TRX, turbo kickboxing, ballet, strength training, power cycling, fitness for the unfit, to name a few. Her energy is absolutely contagious to her students!

 

“I have been doing TRX to supplement my training. What really sets TRX from regular body weight training is how deeply each movement is stabilized by the core. With TRX I get to work on truly functional movement. Because of the complexity of each movement it manages to keep my brain completely occupied, it’s meditative in this way. I strongly recommend it for ALL LEVELS. Start easy and learn the proper form. Then gradually ramp up the intensity by changing the angle of your body – so simple.” – Marta Czajkowska

Fridays, 5:45-7 pm 

This class helps you to attain calmness. It builds your endurance through concentrated focus on the qigong postures we are performing. Improving your circulation through qigong is very healthy for your heart.

This class is offered as an introductory, drop-in class through the end of August. Thereafter, Master Chin’s intention is to convert it to a committed series so that students can receive the benefits of steady practice.

As you perform the qigong postures, you begin to experience the energy of qi – which is the energy of the universe – flowing through your system. The intention is for you to utilize and reinforce your energy so that this thread of qi can become a steady rope of qi!

This reinforced energy flow is achieved as you concentrate in your physical discipline. Your emotions will calm, your mind will clear, and you will connect with a higher universal energy.

Meditation is the next level of this physical practice. The KoBang Meditation class is therefore recommended as helpful to accompany your qigong practice.

Axion Sword’s junior program is building the next generation of healthy, confident, and motivated leaders. The sword has been a symbol of the hero in the imagination of children across cultures for generations. Axion Sword’s youth programs are a safe way to give children the experience of swordsmanship as a way to build physical ability, mental character, and emotional balance.

The foam sword allows people to express their inner Jedi. Even when we are ‘battling’, nobody gets angry and nobody gets hurt. Everyone sweats a lot, laughs a lot, and has lots of fun learning together!

Focus

The key to success in Axion Sword comes from calmness. When we learn to relax the mind and focus we get faster, more precise, and have more fun!

Discipline

Practitioners of Axion Sword develop self-control. We train to move how we want to move, when we want to move, where we want to move with the right intention and attitude!

Confidence

Axion Sword makes the fantasy of swordsmanship a reality. We teach people to develop the abilities to actually do the things they’ve seen in movies and imagined themselves doing!

The first month of Axion Sword prepares students for a demonstration performance on Sunday, September 3rd. We are also aiming at a performance possibility at the Blaisdell on October 14th at the Globetrotters pregame show!

Price: $99/month, 20% off for siblings, First month: 50% discount

Initial requirement: Each child needs his/her own helmet, gloves, foam sword, wood sword and chest protection. Discounted price for equipment: $120
