During our time of pause, while the world came to something of a standstill, many have found solace, steady invigoration, and inner/outer connection through yoga.  Please join Hawaii’s second annual International Yoga Day event, honoring this ancient body-mind-spirit practice of Yoga.

For some sessions you can join the practice on your mat at home to sample different yoga styles. Listen to Sanskrit mantras typically used in yoga and watch various yoga demonstrations. Tune in for conversation on yoga philosophy.

Originating in India, yoga goes back thousands of years. Modern research shows that yoga adds significantly to our quality of life when done regularly with proper technique. Studies repeatedly show that yogic postures enhance body functionality, while breathing slowly in a relaxed manner, can slow our heart rate. Focusing the mind through yogic meditation cultivates mental peace and potentially deep, spiritual insight.

Location: Still & Moving Center, 1024 Queen Street, Honolulu

Let’s celebrate an historic event honoring the ancient body-mind-spirit practice of yoga. We’ll watch an aerial yoga demonstration and listen to Sanskrit mantras typically used in yoga. Everyone will be invited onto mats to sample several different yoga styles. And we’ll meet and greet over refreshments and Indian pupus.

Thanks to the efforts of the Gandhi International Institute for Peace, the Hawaii Legislature has just formally recognized International Yoga Day on June 21st. As of this year, 2019, Hawaii now stands as a beacon of health and mindfulness, being the first state in the nation to do so!

Originating in India, yoga goes back thousands of years. Modern research shows that yoga adds significantly to our quality of life when done regularly with proper technique. Studies repeatedly show that yogic postures enhance body functionality, while breathing slowly in a relaxed manner, can slow our heart rate. Focusing the mind cultivates mental peace and deep insight.

“We yoga studio owners watch intense, stressed out people arrive for yoga classes every day,” says Renée Tillotson, director of Still & Moving Center. “The students leave class with a relaxed walk, better posture, smooth brow, broad smile, and a general air of enjoyment of life. What’s not to celebrate?!?”

Join us for this first ever event!

Honored Guests :

Senator Mike Gabbard and Senator Brian Taniguchi.

Thai Yoga Massage with Shai Segre

Come get a taste of the classical techniques of a profound system of Thai Yoga massage that emphasizes ease over effort. Focusing on zero-impact for the giver and maximum effect for receiver, we learn how to use gravity, body weight and functional movement to provide as much or as little pressure as needed in each technique to optimally adjust the gesture to the receiver. Rooted in the 3-dosha / 5-element theories of Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine, this workshop focuses on the Earth and Water element to create grounding and fluidity in the bodies of both giver and receiver. The practice also includes water-element harmonic techniques often used in osteopathy to lubricate and liberate the spine, as well as release perennially tight muscles, such as the hip flexors and lower back. You will leave with an introduction to easily applicable techniques for helping others with loving kindness and compassionate touch – as well as with the euphoria of giving and receiving incredible bodywork.

 

Core Centered Yoga with Kendra Gillis

Start your day off right with a vinyasa flow yoga class mixed with some pilates-inspired movements and exercises. Our power, our strength, comes from our core, which helps to keep us feeling grounded, balanced, and steady. This yoga class will focus on building strength and stability not only in the abdominal region, but in the back as well. Your spine will feel strong, long, and ready to support you throughout your daily activities. Kendra tailors the class to a range of ability levels, showing variations. All are welcome.

Yin Yoga with Claudia Castor

Yin Yoga, also known as Taoist Yoga, targets connective tissue, specifically ligaments and tendons in the joints and spine.  To lengthen the connective tissue, we extend the duration of the postures, engaging in static stretching. When the muscle is fully stretched, the stress reaches the connective tissue. In yin yoga, asanas are usually held for three to five minutes. Because of the long duration of asanas, one of the key values cultivated in the practice of yin yoga is patience. It is quite a meditative practice.

If the muscles are cold, they will be less elastic, and more therapeutic stress will be transferred to the connective tissue. For this reason, it is recommended that yin yoga be practiced earlier in the day, before physical activity that warms the muscles and increases their elasticity. However, some note that practicing yin yoga after a strenuous day is psychologically soothing.

Over time, practice of yin yoga can lengthen these tissues, increasing range of motion. As connective tissue accounts for about fifty percent of the body’s resistance to range of motion, focusing on connective can dramatically increase flexibility. The intensity and physical benefits of the practice depend on duration of the asana (pose) and the temperature of the muscle.

Yoga Basics with Lee Ann Kong

Here’s a yoga class designed to be accessible, effective, and fun for every student. We focus on breath and alignment in basic poses, tailoring the class to the individual student’s physical needs, experience, and fitness level. By explaining poses step by step from the ground up, Lee-Ann brings attention to body awareness, moving in and out of poses safely and comfortably, and connecting it all in a simple but dynamic sequence.

Vinyasa Yoga with Justin Bolle

This all levels Vinyasa flow yoga class invites you to invigorate your day, calming your inner dialogue. Increase your strength, balance, and clarity as you build heat from the inside out. Practice proper posture alignment and flow through yoga sequences by connecting breath to movement. Use this vinyasa to fire up the warmth within you, stabilize your thoughts, challenge your spirit and lengthen your limbs. Find the benefits of an energized body and a deeper intent.

Women’s Yoga with Alessandra Lopes

Women’s Yoga is soft and intuitive. It guides us through gentle yet powerful movements that help us soften and center. Yogic movement is combined with healing touches, meditation and poetry. It’s not a traditional asana practice, but instead it draws inspiration from yoga, dance and ancient female practices to create something that is truly nourishing for the female body and spirit. Come to class and leave feeling as if you’ve spent the day at a luxurious spa.
