Aloha <<First Name>>!
Welcome to a month of Yin Yang balance in our new classes! How appropriate in the month of September when we celebrate the equal day/night balance of the Autumn Equinox!
Find balance in your life. Come to the Center.
We’re quite honored to welcome to Still & Moving Center and Hawaii a living treasure in the world of moving meditation: Dr. Sun Ock Lee from Korea. Based on her professional dance background and her training in Zen meditation, “Sunny” presents to us her practice of ZenDance. To relieve the tension of living in our complex, busy world, she gives us Stress Management Movement Meditation.
Notice the balance of our keiki classes: the groundedness of swords, the elevation of aerial and the flow of hula. Earth, air and water - sorry, our insurance won’t cover kids fire spinning!!!
You'll love a dynamic duo that are joining forces to teach Yin Yang Yoga Flow! Two of our students are ‘claiming their magnificence’ by evolving into teachers in their own right! Lee-Ann Kong and Ciara Steynberg graduated from Claudia Castor’s Adhi Shakti 200 hour yoga training and have also gained high marks from our David Sanders for their teaching skills.
Resting in stillness & moving in Joy with you,
Your friends at Still & Moving Center

Thursdays 5:45 - 6:45 pm - Starts September 14th with a free introductory class!
In this Vinyasa and restorative yoga combination class you enjoy benefits of flowing between both worlds. Start slowly with our deep, yin practice, move into a vinyasa flow, then close with a restorative yin. The tone of the class is light, so you walk out feeling as if you’ve been on holiday!
This class helps you to naturally reset a healthy balance between both sides of the spectrum: mental and physical, strength and flexibility, exertion and rest. View Full Details »
Wednesdays 5:30 pm. Transfers to Kezia on September 6. Given the lyrical, gracefully acrobatic movements aerialists can perform on this apparatus, it is appropriately called “lyra”. While upper body strength is cultivated by practicing lyra, it also provides beautiful resting poses. This class is for students who are able to get on and off the lyra without a spot. Students will learn basic poses and variations under the lyra, straddles with variations, poses in the lyra, and balance poses. View Full Details »
Sundays 11 am -12:15 pm - starting Sept 10.
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. View Full Details »
Monday 7 to 8 pm - starting September 4.
Unite in a rhythm or a dance move and add your own style! Simple moves that everyone can do. If it feels good, you’re doing it right. Get creative with your style to a variety of music. The aim is to use the dance floor to create community and remember that life isn’t that serious! So come on down and have a boogie with us! See you on the dance floor. View Full Details »

The sword has been a symbol of the hero in the imagination of children across cultures for generations. Axion Sword’s youth programs are a safe way to give children the experience of swordsmanship as a way to build physical ability, mental character, and emotional balance. View Full Details »
Tuesdays 10:15 - 10:45 am. We believe that the littlest keiki can dance hula and have welcomed dancers as young as two weeks old! Caregivers dance together with their keiki so that everybody learns something! Most hula are performed seated, so keiki can explore hula from the safety of a familiar lap. The 25 minute class time is just right for developing attention spans. View Full Details »
