The Heart of Aloha

Mark Kadota

December 26, 2012 - December 27, 2012

Art of AlohaWinter is a time of clearing away dead leaves and preparing for new growth in the spring. I am using this as a metaphor for creating this workshop. The focus of this workshop is the art of giving. We will explore our fears and find ways to remove the blocks. We will address giving and receiving to ourselves and the world around us.
 

About the Facilitator(s)

Most of my education has been informal and passed down through an oral tradition. I have relied on my intuition, travel and determination to explore cultural ideas and beliefs. Much of my teachings rely on taking parts of various cultural practices and creating unique ways of self-discovery. Main source of practices has been shamanic cultures. I have had a series of teachers in different shamanic cultures.

About the Facilitator(s)

Paul Tucci

Paul TucciPaul worked for years as a bartender and assistant manager at an awesome  and popular SOMA (SF) dive bar. Physical alignment issues and a search for his spiritual side led him to the yoga mat. He began to teach hatha yoga in 2007. "Teaching is always inspiring when you see the transformation of the students over the yoga session". His classes are  slow flow hatha  with a sprinkling of pilates and yin yoga. He likes to say, in class,  that his voice is only a guide and that the students should take the responsibility to find what it is they need from their practice.

Paul has studied extensively with Ana Forrest, Erich Schiffman, Les Leventhal, & Tony Briggs. He is currently a big fan of yoga instructor Maria Stanford & Jean Mazzei. He recently took a detour to San Diego to get his Physical Therapy Assistant license, and is ecstatic to be back in the Bay Area. Paul currently teaches at the Sun Room in SF and is looking forward to his 3rd time teaching at Kalani.
