Yoga in Kyiv is confusing and disorderly

Posted: at 4:52 pm


without comments

Even before approaching the door, the sound of deep, controlled breaths echoes from within the room. Once inside, the strong smell of incense and body heat emanates as sweaty men and women practice yoga postures side by side. Mats are lined in two rows facing each other. Everyone on them twists, turns and lifts their bodies into carefully balanced headstands.

This scene from the Kiev Yoga Studio is only one of many interpretations of what it means to yoke the spirit and physical body together in Kyiv. Yoga studio websites promote countless variations: yogalates, yoga flow, hanging yoga, yoga relax, partner yoga or simply stretching.

But potential adherents of the exercise will struggle to find their way through Kyivs confusing yoga scene. This comes from the absence of order and unity. Unlike their Western counterparts, Ukrainian yoga schools have yet to agree on universal teaching criteria. In the U.S., the Yoga Alliance fulfills this role with an established set of criteria necessary to acquire teaching credentials. In Ukraine, things are much more chaotic with most studios hiring based on displayed skill or no criteria at all.

But as yoga grows in popularity, the need arises for a local yoga system. To make it easier for newcomers, yoga in the nations capital can be divided into two groups: fitness studio yoga and immersive yoga.

Its very hard these days to find a fitness studio that would not offer yoga as an option, says Anna Rozgulyayeva, head of recruitment at Alpiyskiy fitness club.

However, sometimes fitness clubs mix yoga with pilates, a set of exercises developed in the mid-20thcentury. The clubs advertise yoga as a way to stay in shape while relieving stress.

An immersive approach means a studio exclusively teaches yoga. There are some 30 immersive yoga studios in Kyiv. These either specialize in yoga or offer additional services such as the martial art of Tai Chi or Qigong exercises that share much with the yogic philosophy. But even the strictly yoga studios usually offer a rich variety of yoga types.

We do not, after all, walk around wearing the same clothes. Everyone has individual needs and we try to meet those needs, explains Elena Vladykina, administrator of the Be Happy yoga center. But which ones offer the real deal, and who are the pretenders? Ukrainian Yoga Federation president Andriy Safronov says this is not the case. There are no good or bad types of yoga, he explains. If we take away the religious and esoteric aspect of yoga, (it) can be simply defined as the art of improving oneself. If a person is going to a studio to work out instead of sitting at home and drinking beer, in a sense that is yoga already.

Still, the teaching is questionable in both fitness and immersive yoga.

Yulia Zenchenko, an instructor with five years of experience who teaches at the Ukrainian Federation of Yoga, says the group is very strict with instructors. The federation demands that each of their instructors have at least two higher-education degrees and have an advanced understanding of the physical body. But an average instructor in a fitness studio can get away with a one-month crash course, according to Zenchenko.

Yoga Therapy and Cancer Survivorship: Talking to the Body With Love

Posted: at 4:52 pm


without comments

(PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Integrated Health Yoga Therapy (http://www.ihyt.org/) faculty member Jnani Chapman, RN was honored in early June at the International Association of Yoga Therapists conference in Austin, TX. Jnani co-hosted one of 4 all-day workshops at SYTAR,IAYTs Symposium on Yoga Therapy and Research (http://www.sytar.org/sytar2014/sytar_overview.htm). Her topic, Yoga Therapy Cancer Survivorship Strategies during and after Cancer Treatment, is part of IAYTs ongoing advocacy and commitment to the evolution of Yoga therapy in modern medicine.

The SYTAR conference is dedicated entirely to professional education, research, practice, and policy issues for Yoga therapy. Jnani and Heather Reeds workshop overviewed symptoms and side effects people typically experience during cancer treatment and in post treatment recovery and survivorship. They presented specific techniques and approaches from YCat Yoga therapy: Jnani is the founder and director of YCat Yoga therapy certification trainings and Heather is a YCat faculty member. The YCat curriculum adapts Yoga practices to specifically address physical issues like pain, anxiety, fatigue, and nausea and improve mood and coping ability in survivors. This approach includes describing the underlying physiological mechanisms involved in producing the feel-better benefits of the practices so that the teachers become therapists and health educators in cancer care. The YCat trainings update yoga teachers and health professionals on related past and current Yoga and cancer research.

In addition to being the first executive director of the International Association of Yoga Therapists from 1994-98, Jnani Chapman was a nurse case manager and cardiac rehab and stress management specialist for Dr. Dean Ornishs Heart Disease Reversal Program (HDRP) research and retreats from 1986-1999. Jnani came to UCSF in 1997 to staff HDRP there and a research study for one year and clinical program for women with breast cancer for five years. Jnani was a founding clinician for the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine from 2001-2009 and she developed the Yoga classes for the UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Jnani is currently an integrative oncology specialist for St. Marys Medical Center (SMMC) in San Francisco, a part of Dignity Health. Jnani is a senior staff member for the Commonweal and Smith Center Cancer Help Programs in Bolinas, CA and WDC. She teachers Yoga for cancer, chronic illness and aging for SMMC and also teaches for Dean Ornish, MDs early-stage prostate cancer post-research participants and their partners in Sausalito, CA. She is on the faculties of many Yoga Therapy training programs, serves as a national and international consultant, and acts as co-principal investigator on several studies using the YCat curriculum with cancer patients. In addition to other trainings on behalf of Integrated Health Yoga Therapy, Jnani teaches Yoga Therapy in Cancer and Chronic Illness YCat Level 1 TT (http://www.ihyt.org/#!programs/cnnj) as part of IHYTs 500-hr Yoga Therapist Training Level 2 Electives.

YCat Yoga Therapy in Cancer and Chronic Illness (http://www.yogaforpeoplewithcancer.com/) is a certification program designed by Jnani Chapman and her staff to train health professionals and experienced Yoga teachers to work safely with cancer patients at any stage of illness as well as people with stable chronic illness. The purpose of the program is to promote the adaptation of traditional Yoga practices to meet the physiological and psychological needs of this population and enhance the ability of Yoga professionals to communicate with medical personnel.

Yoga Therapy for those with cancer and chronic illness is a highly personalized process in which traditional practices must be adapted as needed to suit individual circumstances in an ongoing collaborative process. Yoga can be dangerous both physically and emotionally if not administered with care by a Yoga therapist trained to work with people with a variety of cancer and chronic illness diagnoses.

One of the myths Jnani wants to dispel is that of Yoga as intense exercise. Movement and activity is essential to health and wellbeing, but pushing our edges is not. Jnani urges all Yoga practitioners and particularly cancer patients to listen to their bodies and absolutely not push themselves beyond their comfort levels. Furthermore, the Yoga as go-for-the-burn exercise is only the proverbial tip of the iceberg. It is what is visible and trendy but may leave much of the deeper healing aspects of Yoga hidden from the general public. Certainly the Hatha Yoga, the movements and breathing of Yoga, have a great deal to offer cancer patients ~ and so do the many inward practices of Yoga like yoga nidra, guided imagery and meditation. Jnanis favorite definition of Yoga comes from Yoga therapy forefather TKV Desikachar who says, Awareness, breath, and movement--that is Yoga! Many times it is the awareness practices of Yoga or aspects of Yoga philosophy that lead people to Ah has and to positive self care behaviors in cancer survivorship.

Felicia Tomasko wrote in LA Yoga magazine that Jnani Chapman is skilled at the sweet-talking compassion that expresses the type of love that we may be lucky to experience in this lifetime. [. . .] Feeling this love is part of the healing process and it allows us to experience healing at all levels. To inspire this, Jnani puts her lyrical voice to good use in her work with individuals with cancer or other chronic illnesses when she teaches them to talk to their bodies with a caring and sincere expression of love rather than the shame, betrayal or fear that can often accompany a diagnosis.
