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。

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.

熱心な料理人(ハワイアンは食べ物が大好きで、ドーリスもグルメな食通です。)であるドーリスは楽しいことをするのが大好きで、空いてる時間には医師の夫を手伝い、素晴らしいバルーンアートを作ります。

Born to Japanese parents in Hawaii, Doris grew up speaking both Japanese and English. A true daughter of the islands, Doris exudes a vivacious genuineness for what she loves and believes in. Doris is well-loved for sharing her aloha – her friendship and warmth. Starting from her years working at Hilton Hawaiian Village hotel, Doris loves to share every good thing her island home has to offer. 

Doris is steeped in the dance of Hawaii, hula. With 8,000 hours of training with Mālia Helelā, kumu hula (master teacher of hula), Doris has earned the position of alaka’i hula (hula leader). She sings and plays ukulele while dancing hula. She teaches “I Love Hula” class in Japanese.

An avid cook (Hawaiians LOVE food, and Doris is a “foodie” herself), Doris has a fun-loving nature that comes out when she helps her husband, a medical doctor, make fabulous balloon art in their spare time!

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.

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.

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.

Lee-Ann Kong

Lee-Ann’s approach is fun and energetic. She encourages you to keep going even when you want to quit. Hey, you want to earn those fried foods credits for after class, right?!? When she coaches you to do your best, that doesn’t mean to do someone else’s best. We’re all here to get better, she reasons, so just push yourself to do a tiny bit better than you did before…and laugh your way through it! She reminds you to tune into your personal safety. You don’t need to do the full fancy pose – she gives you options to stay within your range of comfort.

Lee-Ann likes bringing to class crystals, candles, and essential oils for aromatherapy. She studies under a feng shui master learning how universal energy flow affects us on the personal level, and she bring that understanding to her practice and teaching of yoga.

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). Please let us know if you need Continuing Education Credit hours.
