このクラスは特別にスティル&ムービングセンター 、アロハ大使のドーリス・モリサキによるアロハ・スパークルで始まります。クラス開始前(1時50分~)にドーリスがZoomでクラスに入ってくる参加者を出迎えます。クラスが始まる前にちょっとしたアロハ・スパークル情報(愉快なハワイの習慣、面白いハワイ語やピジョン語、ハワイアンフード情報やハワイで訪れると楽しい所など)をシェアします。

このボウスプリング・ヨガクラスでは背骨と体の自然なカーブの発達を促します。従来のハタヨガのポーズを使わずに、しなやかなラインを目指します。60分間のクラスで、しなる弓形姿勢をマインドフルに保持することで、腰痛や肩こり、他にも慢性的な痛みを緩和。体をしなやかに調整し、体のバランスを整えながら、集中力も高まります。

この最先端なヨガスタイルは2012年にデジー・スプリンガー氏とジョン・フレンド氏によって生み出されました。何か新しいことをトライしてみたい初心者、シニア、熱心なヨギーニまで誰もが参加できるオープン・レベルのクラスです。

As a special, interactive feature, this class opens with Aloha Sparkle ✨ by Still & Moving Center’s Ambassador of Aloha, Doris Morisaki. Doris will greet you during the first 10 minutes before class (1:50 pm) as you check into Zoom. She will give a brief Aloha Sparkle ✨ tip just before you start class:  a humorous Hawaiian habit, an interesting Hawaiian or Pidgin word, a Hawaiian food tip or a fun place to go in Hawaii.

BOWSPRING YOGA class that Kenta teaches develops the natural curves of your spine and body, avoiding traditional Hatha yoga poses, which tend to be more linear. By mindfully holding curvy, bow-shaped postures during the 60 minute class, you can alleviate back pain, stiffness in your shoulders, and other chronic pain. You will sharpen your mental focus, while toning, limbering and balancing your body.  

This cutting edge yoga style was developed by Desi Springer and John Friend in 2012.  Kenta’s class is OPEN TO ALL LEVELS, and is good for everyone, including beginners, seniors and serious yoga students wanting to try something new.

 

Kenta Nakano 中野憲太

40歳までヨガの経験がなかったが、カリフォルニア州ロサンゼルスでトップレベルのバーガーシェフとして7年間働いた後、日本に戻り、真剣にヨガの勉強を始める。ヨガに熱心に従事し、E-RYT200ヨガ講師として認定される。2011年以来、日本やハワイで何千人もの生徒を養成し、RYT200認定書を授与している。

2013年にサンフランシスコでデジー・スプリンガー氏とジョン・フレンド氏主催のワークショップを受講後、ボウスプリング・ヨガを学び始める。馴染み深かった伝統的なハタヨガとは全く違うボウスプリング(しなる弓形)メゾットに深い感銘を受ける。“忘れられないレッスンでした。特にスカイダイバーのポーズはとてもエキサイティングで難しく、死にそうになったほどです!”と語る。

ボウスプリング・ヨガを始めてから、マインド、体、健康が好転。長年の腎臓結石や腰痛も解消したという。このマインド・ボディーメゾットを日本中に広めたいという想いのもと、東京に2カ所、スタジオ・ボウスプリングを開設。現在、株式会社リブウェルの代表取締役として、HOT40 Yogaというヨガスタジオを全国20カ所で運営している。

“20年前、短期間ですが、歌舞伎役者をしていたことがあります。歌舞伎に付け加え、日本文化や禅の哲学を尊び、学びました。ご存知かもしれませんが、“かた”という言葉は禅の哲学から由来しています。世界的なボウスプリング認定講師・トレーナとして、ボウスプリング・メゾットのヨガ・テクニックとアジア伝統文化を融合する役目があると確信しています。生涯学びの精神で、デジー、ジョン、そして他の立派な講師達からボウスプリングを学び続けたいと思っています。”

Kenta had no experience in yoga until he was forty years old. Once he returned home to Japan from 7 years working in Los Angeles, California as a top-ranked burger chef, he started to seriously study yoga.

He became so engaged in yoga, he certified as a ERYT200 yoga teacher trainer, and has trained thousands of Japanese students since 2011 – both in Japan and in Hawaii, providing them with RYT200 certificates. 

Kenta started studying Bowspring Yoga in 2013 after taking a workshop with Desi Springer and John Friend in San Francisco.  The Bowspring method impressed him in its difference from the traditional hatha yoga he had been practicing.  He says, “The lessons were unforgettable, especially the “skydiver” pose, which was very exciting, tough, and nearly killed me!”

Practicing Bowspring changed his mind, body and health. He recovered  from years of kidney stones and lower back pain. Knowing that he wanted to share this mind-body method with the rest of Japan, he set up two Studio Bowspring locations in Tokyo. Now the CEO of LIVEWELL, Inc, Kenta operates 20 hot yoga studios across Japan, called HOT40 Yoga. They also teach “Hot Bow” classes there!

Twenty years ago, and for a short period of time, Kenta was a Kabuki theater actor. In addition to theater, he proudly studies and treasures Japanese culture and Zen philosophy. As you may know, the word “Kata” originates from the Zen Philosophy concept of mindfulness. As a Global Bowspring certified teacher trainer, he believes it to be his dharma (duty) to integrate the new yoga technique of the Bowspring method with traditional Asian culture. As a life-long learner, Kenta continues to study Bowspring from Desi, John, and other respected teachers.

Hawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique.  Lomilomi acknowledges and appreciates the influence of Hawaii’s natural environment on its healing practices. This training provides a foundation in lomilomi that is appropriate for use in a spa setting or within the family.

Malia introduces bodywork in the first lesson, so look forward to giving and receiving massage in every session! Each weekly session builds upon the last so that lessons and themes are intertwined.

Topics in the training include, but are not limited to, Hawaiian terminology for the course, opening and closing protocols, palpation, using the bones as guides, and body systems found in nature. To complement the lomilomi massage techniques, students also learn relevant components of oli (chanting), hula (dance), pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language). Lei-making develops skills in the hands and fingers and illustrates the importance of a firm yet sensitive touch. Students will also learn the significance of the moon throughout this training.

The shoulders and the hips form the 4 corners of the body. This particular lomilomi training, entitled “Corners of the Body,” weaves in deeper work for the large joints of the shoulders and hips.  These four corners mark the boundaries of the core body and its vital organs.

This “Corners of the Body” lomilomi massage training is one of 8 complementary training programs, each 16 hours long. As a whole, her 8 complementary programs, each with its own focus, provide 128 hours of training that comprises her full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage. Malia will give this current training compressed into a single  16 hours weekend intensive. 

Mālia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helelā

Kumu Mālia is beloved by students around the globe for her kind heart and loving style of teaching, not to mention her deep knowledge, beautiful voice and exquisite dancing. She is a traditionally graduated kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner/trainer, as well as a cultural consultant for Still & Moving Center.

Malia Helela completed her hula ʻuniki (graduation) under Kumu Hula Puluʻelo Park in 2002, and studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. Malia has been teaching both practices ever since to a wide range of students, from infants to kupuna, and leading her halau (school), Nā Hula Ola Aloha. Kumu Malia has personally taught thousands of hula students in Hawaii. Additionally, the many Japanese hula teachers whom she has trained over the years teach hundreds of their own students in Japan using the style, method and philosophy of Kumu Malia’s hula lineage.

Kumu Malia considers her hula practice and lomilomi practice to be two parts of the same whole. From her 20 years of lomi experience, she developed a 128 hour massage training program of her own called Puana Lomilomi, based on the intertwined practices of lomilomi, hula, pule, oli and lei-making.

As a member of Ka Pā o Lonopūhā, Malia participates in the sharing of native Hawaiian healing arts that focus specifically on lomi aʻe and elements of haki kino, laʻau lapaʻau and hoʻoponopono. Malia regularly teaches lomilomi for the Salvation Armyʻs Womenʻs Way program representing their cultural healing classes for women in recovery.

As an ambassador and guest lecturer of Hawaiian culture, Malia has delivered presentations for Leeward Community College, the Hawaii Yoga Institute, Outrigger Reef on the Beach, Mid Pacific Institute, Hawaiʻi Pacific University, Manoa Cottage, Honolulu Theater for Youth, numerous groups of International middle and high school students and Still & Moving Center. Kumu Mālia Helelā is currently researching and writing a trilogy of historic novels centered on the Kawehewehe and Kalia area. As a kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner, she looks to the ‘āina, the land, for grounding and inspiration.

Kumu Malia Helela’s 2 year Hula Mentorship Program

This 3-day intensive can be taken as a springboard to a 2 year mentorship program. Throughout this immersion, Kumu Malia will assess with students their suitability and interest in enrollment for her 2 year mentorship. All applicants will be required to send a letter explaining their hula experience and the reasons they are interested in the program.

Can the Aloha Spirit heal our bodies, our relationships, and our world? Diagnosed with stage 2 Colorectal cancer, Makala Kozo Hattori refused conventional treatments of chemo, radiation, and surgery in favor of healing with Aloha practices handed down from his kûpuna (elders). He has found that Aloha can not only heal the body, but also bring peace to relationships and the world (Aloha ‘Âina). This workshop combines Hawaiian practices like ho’oponopono, hula, and “talk story”; Eastern practices like Yoga Nidra and meditation: with Western research in compassion cultivation and vagus nerve activation to bring healing into all aspects of our lives.

At the 1970 Governor’s Conference in Honolulu, a kûpuna (an elder) affectionately known as Aunty Pîlahi Pâkî announced, “…in the next millennium the world will turn to Hawai`i in its search for world peace because Hawai’i has the key…and that key is ALOHA.” Aloha Awakenings invites participants to explore in-depth the power of ALOHA to bring peace, tranquility, and love into our lives, relationships, and communities. We will explore embodied mindfulness movements that free the body, open the heart, and nourish the soul. We will “talk story” and sit in silence to deeply connect with each other. We will learn how to continuously live aloha and awaken to our true compassionate selves. Please come prepared to delve deeply into movement, stillness, and unconditional love.

Inspired by ServiceSpace.org and their practice of gift ecology, this workshop is given freely with an opportunity to pay-it-forward. Refreshments and snacks will be served.

portraitI am not an expert nor a master. I am just a host. I bring forth and share what has been given to me from my ‘Aumakua, my teachers, and my Hawaiian grandfather, Keneze Kaohiaimakuakama Wood. I have been blessed to study aikido, zen, vipassana, surfing, ho’oponopono, qigong, and aloha from a variety of masters.Trying to preserve Hawaiian wisdom, I interviewed kûpuna like Pono Shim, Paul Strauch Jr. and Suzi Kawaiohiokekaikaiona’okalâni Ko. I also created the Compassionate Men’s Interview Series which includes interviews with Thich Nhat Hanh, Rick Hanson, Father Richard Rohr, and Dan Siegel.

Recently, I was diagnosed with stage 2 cancer. The doctors insisted that I start chemo and radiation to prepare for surgery. When I “ ua ‘ike” (peered) into my “na’au” (guts), where I was told the tumor was, it became clear that conventional medicine was not the best path for my healing, so I began treating this dis-ease with Hawaiian healing arts like pule, ho’oponopono, and aloha. I have faith in my kûpuna and ‘aumakua to provide the most appropriate healing for my soul, whatever form that may take. I offer my teachings as a gift from my ancestors to whomever it serves.

Aloha Awakenings Talk Story Satsang is a short introduction to the full-day Aloha Awakenings workshop on Sept 12. In this one hour session, we will sit in silence for 20 minutes, learn and practice some vagus nerve activation exercises for 20 minutes, and share or “talk story” for 20 minutes. Satsang means “true company,” so the power of the satsang comes from the whole circle of participants, not just the facilitator. Makala looks forward to sharing space with those who feel drawn to this gathering.

Inspired by ServiceSpace.org and their practice of gift ecology, this workshop is given freely with an opportunity to pay-it-forward. Refreshments and snacks will be served.
