This 20-hour training introduces participants to specific tools to facilitate trauma-sensitive movement. We will explore hatha yoga and breath practices, which can be vital to the healing process of complex trauma. The training emphasizes core components of the theory and practice of trauma sensitive yoga, and how they relate to other anti-oppressive and trauma sensitive treatment methods.

 

This program includes:

  • The latest trauma theories and neurophysiology
  • Theoretical underpinnings and methodology of TCTSY
  • An in-depth look at studies involving TCTSY
  • Opportunities to practice the methods.

 

Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) has become a leading evidence-based adjunct treatment for Complex Trauma (sometimes called chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). TCTSY is the only yoga-based practice accepted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) and listed with the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). This unique intervention is based on the robust research that has emerged from The Trauma Center in Boston, MA. 

This training is designed for social workers, activists, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, other health care professionals and anyone looking to deepen their understanding of complex, intersectional trauma. There are no prerequisites to taking this workshop. All are welcome.

Complex trauma dramatically impacts the nervous system. This course is designed to support professionals in broadening their repertoire with trauma sensitive movement and incorporate aspects of the Evidence Based Practice (EBP) of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) to specifically address the connection between trauma and the nervous system.   

This weekend training qualifies as the prerequisite for application to the Center for Trauma and Embodiment’s TCTSY 300-Hour Annual Certification program and is eligible for CEs (18 contact, 2 non-contact) with Yoga Alliance (YA), International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), and various state licensing boards (as requested).

Trauma Sensitive Yoga is an embodied movement and yoga practice that gives you an opportunity to move in your body and reconnect with your sense of self.

This specific style of yoga facilitation is an evidence-based movement practice, and is designed to work with those who have experienced trauma. The practice uniquely blends yoga movements and trauma awareness. This provides a space for you to reconnect with yourself by moving in your body. You will be guided through the opportunity to feel, and to rediscover sensation and choice making in your body to cultivate a sense of agency – both of which are often compromised as a result of trauma.

Some things that make this style of yoga different from other styles are the emphasis of choice in every type of movement or breath offering, and the focus on sensations that you may or may not be feeling in your body. The facilitator will always practice with you in this style of yoga, and will not provide hands on assists. If you have questions about whether or not this practice may be a fit for you, please reach out to us.

 

Alana Schaffman

From as far back as she can remember, expressing herself through movement and dance has always brought Alana happiness, and brought her back to her center.  

When asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, Alana always responded, “I want to work with people,” but she did not understand what that meant. As an adult, she found a career in the social services arena and as a yoga teacher. Alana earned a Master’s in Community Development and Planning, her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification, and most recently her TCTSY-F (Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga – Facilitator) certification.

Through personal life lessons and through her professional work with families experiencing homelessness and domestic violence, Alana continues to deepen her understanding of the life-long impact that trauma can have on us as human beings, and on the ways we navigate through this world. Through offering trauma sensitive yoga to the community, she hopes to move with others through their more “muddy” life experiences. She hopes to provide a space where each individual can reconnect with their sense of self and find their way back to their “center”. 

“I would be honored for you to move with me.” – Alana

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。

Zoomでオンラインクラスに参加!日本語説明ビデオ(iPhone 編)

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.

Yukie says, “In my classes, I focus on the importance of how YOUR body is feeling. I teach you to choose the movement that feels joyful and healing for you. I provide content for everybody, so that even someone dancing for the first time can join comfortably. 

I’m looking forward to dancing with you soon!

Blending Martial Arts, Dance Arts, and Healing Arts, Nia® creates an experience that involves your whole body, as well as your spirit.

Yukie Iijima 

神奈川県を中心にスタジオや企業などで幅広い年齢層の方を対象にNiaダンスとヨガを教えている。

幼い頃から踊ることが大好きで、3歳からモダンバレエやクラシックバレエを始める。葛藤を抱えた10 代、踊ることで救われ「人はなぜ踊るのか」ということに関心を持つ。ダンスなどの芸術表現が身体と心にどのような影響を与えるのかを探究したく、大学で心理学や芸術療法を学ぶ。

その後、怪我により踊りから離れる。以前のように踊れない葛藤がある中、様々なスタイルのダンスやヨガと出逢う。身体と心の関係性をさらに探究したく、ヨガインストラクターの資格を取得。同時期にNia(ニア)という本来の自分を大切にするダンスに出逢う。ダンスを通して、身体と心と向き合い、その人が本来持つ可能性を高め、身体も心もより健康的に導くニアの理論に感銘を受ける。

2015年からニアを始め、2017年に大好きなスティル&ムービングセンター にて尊敬するWinalee Zeebの指導のもと、NIa White Belt Trainingを修了。同様に同センターでWinaleeの指導のもと、2018年にNia Green Belt Training、2019年にNia Blue Belt Trainingを修了。

32歳の時に葉状腫瘍のため、胸の部分切除手術を受けたYukieが無事回復し、復帰できたのも、痛みに寄り添いながら身体が喜ぶ動きを見つける手助けをしてくれたニアの教えがあったからと言います。

“スティル&ムービングセンター でのトレーニングは私の人生の中でも特別で大切な時間でした。英語が母国語ではない私ですが、ニアを通して、スティル&ムービングセンターに集う世界中の方たちと繋がることが出来た経験は、私にたくさんのポジティブな影響を与えてくれました。”

“スティル&ムービングセンター は私にとって大切な HOME です。”

Yukie teaches Nia and Yoga for a wide variety of age groups at studios and for companies based in Kanagawa prefecture in Japan.  

Even from a young age Yukie loved to dance. She started learning modern dance and classic ballet at the age of 3. During struggles in her teenage years, dance saved her from being overcome by difficult challenges, and she became interested in “why people dance.” To explore how art forms such as dance affect the body and mind, she studied psychology and healing art at university. 

Yukie sadly stopped dancing due to injuries, then discovered different styles of dance and yoga. To continue studying the body/mind relationship, Yukie earned her yoga instructor certification.  

At the same time, she discovered Nia. She was impressed with the philosophy and phenomenon of Nia. By becoming more aware of her body sensations, of her emotional feelings, and of her thoughts while doing Nia, Yukie became more aware of her true self. She realized how much potential each individual naturally has, and how the movement of Nia leads to a healthy body and mind.

Yukie started Nia in 2015 and completed her Nia White Belt Training with her beloved teacher, Winalee Zebb at Still & Moving Center in Hawaii. She returned again for her Nia Green Belt Training in 2018 and Nia Blue Belt Training in 2019, both with Winalee.

At the age of 32, Yukie had a major surgery (segmentectomy of the breast) to remove a phyllomic tumor.  Even though she went through tremendous pain throughout the recovery process, her Nia techniques helped her to find the movements that her body needed to recuperate and feel comfortable again, and she was able to return to work.

Training at Still & Moving Center was one of the most valuable times in her life. Even though English is not her native language, she was able to connect to people from all over the world through Nia at Still & Moving.  That experience positively influenced her life. Says Yukie: “Still & Moving Center is my precious home.”

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.

Rediscover your innate capacity for effortless, organic, efficient, and graceful movement. Some students find themselves freed of years of pain that they thought they would live with forever. Feldenkrais “Awareness through Movement” lessons consist of gentle movement sequences that can eventually become more complex as you progress. After attending the classes for a while, you will find improved flexibility and breathing, coordination and balance. No prior experience necessary.

Feldenkrais® is based on a sophisticated understanding of the human nervous system that helps students continuously improve their functioning in all areas of life. This method uses learning in the way that babies learn: through exploring movement and sensing the environment, in order to get whatever it is we most want out of life.  For a baby that may be reaching for a toy and bringing it to the mouth, but for an adult, that may be learning to play a sport better, becoming a better actor or dancer, living a pain-free life, increasing productivity at work, or finding harmony at home.  Many students of the Feldenkrais® Method find their physical and non-physical problems spontaneously disappearing as they increase their self-awareness.

This sampler workshop will introduce you to a movement practice that prioritizes healing and empowerment for survivors of trauma. Jody will offer the full 20-hour Trauma Sensitive Yoga training July 31, Aug 1-2, 2020.

Experiencing physical and psychological trauma often causes people to respond to events from their past and disconnect from their bodies. This disconnect in turn causes a further sense of loss, a loss of selfhood. Inviting a person to move their body in a way that feels safe and non-invasive can allow them to experience embodiment once again, to reconnect with themselves.

The Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts developed this particular method, and called it Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY). TCTSY is an empirically validated, clinical intervention for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. The TCTSY method is based on central components of hatha yoga and offers participants a path back to being present.  

 The practice modifies elements of standard hatha yoga to maximize experiences of empowerment and to cultivate a more positive relationship to one’s body. Unlike many yoga classes, TCTSY uses no physical hands-on adjustments to influence a participant’s physical form. Rather, TCTSY presents opportunities for participants to be in charge of themselves based on a felt sense of their own body. Facilitators invite participants to notice sensation and make authentic choices in their bodies as a way to cultivate agency.  

 Attend this sampler to experience the practice and learn more about current methods that foster recovery from trauma and boost resilience.

Learn how to paint a picture with your hands to convey emotions and storytelling as the highlight of your dance piece. In this workshop you will pay special attention to an often-neglected part of the body in dance, the hands! To do so, you will gain experience in traditional training practices of Central Asian dance forms, which traces its roots back thousands of years to the royal courts of the Emirs. Pantomimed folk styles of dance also used hand gestures to reflect daily chores, environment, rites of passage or seasonal occasions. This workshop will enhance your ability to vividly express meaning through your hands, whether on a stage, on the dance floor – in any style of dance – or in your daily life.

You will gain body intelligence through dancing with Tara. Her movement approach emphasizes a foundation in discipline and clean technique balanced with passionate abandon. Through exploring the ‘cartography of the body’, mapping the unique territories of your own body, Tara invites you as a student to unlock both your physical and emotional potential to access fuller dance expression. 

Tara’s in-person workshops can be rigorous and intensive sessions, focusing on technique and performance practices. Online, you as a student are free to adapt Tara’s teaching to your own body’s way of moving and comfort level. 

Dancers of all styles and ability levels are welcome.
