NY Hatha Raja Yoga 指導者養成コースin NY


2007年にウエストコーストのLaguna Beachで始まったNY Hatha Raja Yogaのヨガアライアンス指導者養成コースも、去年で第10期を迎えました。LA, Baliと回を重ね、2011年に養成の舞台をニューヨークに移動してから、早5年。養成を卒業なさり、各地でヨガスタジオを経営なさったり、指導なさっているたくさんの方々と、未だに密接におつきあいさせていただいています。去年立ち上げた、Yoga Tune Up ®The Roll Model ®メソッド、セラピーボールの養成にもご参加いただき、引き続きみなさんの継続教育をのお手伝いをさせていただき、また、毎年日本で、またニューヨークでみなさんにお会いできるのが楽しみのひとつです。

さて、今年も半分が終わり、Yoga Tune Up ®Japanのウェブサイトと会社の立ち上げで奔走しているうちに、もう直ぐ夏。残念ながら本年のニューヨークでの養成はお休みを頂くことになりました。

2017年は記念すべき第11期、NY Hatha Raja Yogaは新しく生まれ変わります。少人数制で、こだわりの養成であること、卒業なさった方々が確実に実力派の指導者になっていくことには変わりありません。来年からは、さらにアナトミーとキネシオロジー、セラピーとカラダ矯正の部分を高め、その分野で活躍中の講師の方をお招きし、私と共に指導に携わっていきますので、お楽しみになさっていてください。過去に資格を取られた方で、もう一度学び直したい、身になる実力をつけたい、という方々にもオススメです。

There is nothing you cannot do〜できないことなんて何もない

Last Sunday,  we had the good fortune of taking a yoga class with Ms. Tao Porchon- Lynch, world’s oldest yoga teacher. She is a 97-year-old yoga teacher and as she put it, an eternal student herself. I had heard about her a while ago , but quite honestly, I did not expect her class to be anything more than a bunch of relaxing seated poses.  Bill and I felt we needed to go to her class  because we desperately needed some inspiration. Facing our parents and relatives constant passing, aging or deteriorating is making us realize our own mortality. Aging is about preparing for our last moment and we don’t have a choice in that matter. I have seen both of my parents struggle before they passed in recent years. I am hoping our spiritual practice would support us in a course, but still, we cannot really choose what will happen to our body and mind. But, is that true?


When we walked into Tao’s class today, and went up to say hello to her, immediately we forgot about her age and were drawn into her vibrant and welcoming energy. She began her class with a beautiful double Lotus which I struggled even to think about getting into. Let me tell you, her class was not an easy class….  We did Visvamitrasana, we did handstand, and Sirsasana… We did not even sit down. It was a hard core class with many challenging elements as well as some beautifully creative twist. I really appreciated the influence from Iyengar yoga, Ashtanga yoga, and the energy and dance elements in her class. ( That is pretty much what I’ve studied all my life as well). She is from Pondicherry India, and is half Indian and half French. She had 3 hip replacements and that did not stop her from competing in a dance competition with her dance partner who is 70 years her junior. She lives alone and does everything herself. Throughout her class she urged us to keep moving, never to stop… After the class, she put on her high heels and demonstrated a dance move playfully. As she drove away in her little smart car, we just stood there in awe…Well, ladies and gentleman, I am now convinced that we do have a choice in the matter. Whether to keep moving or stop moving. Whether to keep spreading the light or to stop and rot… It is all up to you.
