This class is for de-stressing and re-balancing our energy. This combined yoga practice will renew and ready us for a calm evening, good night’s sleep and clear day ahead. Our Restorative Yoga will use a variety of postures supported with props, such as chairs, bolsters, blankets and straps to experience a deep body relaxation. We move our spine in all directions, alternately stimulating and soothing our organ systems. We reverse the effects of gravity, returning the fluids to our upper body and enhancing heart function. Reducing muscle tension and fatigue, as well as improving digestion, we provide a supportive environment to relax the body. We end with Yoga Nidra as a very powerful way to still the mind. It is not necessary to concentrate. Simply listen to the instructions, follow them mentally, and refrain from sleeping. Yoga Nidra can calm the mind and elevate our spirit.

Treat yourself to deep relaxation. Come and join us on this voyage through the different layers of the body. You will be led through a sequence of restorative yoga postures that support the body in finding deep relaxation by moving out of the “fight or flight” sympathetic nervous system and into the parasympathetic nervous system. We will explore some of the marma points – “energy amplification “ points – from the Indian tradition, and manipulate them through acupressure, facilitating the circulation of vital force energy through the entire body. Aromatherapy, beautifully uplifting and serene music, and candlelight will accompany you through your voyage into a deeply relaxed state, culminating in a guided meditation. Each participant will leave with a handout suggesting a sequence of the vital acupressure points to try at home. No prior yoga experience is necessary, only an open mind and the desire to feel better in your body. Aum, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti. Great for personal restoration.

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.
