She is an Alexander Technique Teacher and also teaches Tai Chi and Qi Gong. Misako was certified as an Alexander Technique Teacher in 1990, and has been practicing Tai Chi and the Japanese healing art, Noguchi­Seitai, since 1975.

She has also taught movement and Alexander Technique in the Idyllwild Arts Academy for high school students. After she met her husband, Mo Nishida, who does a lot of community work in the Japanese American communities, she then started to work with homeless people, AIDS patients, at­-risk kids and people in prison. One of her unique classes is in an adult school on Skid Row where she combines Alexander and meditation for people who are going for an interview: “ go to the interview without fear." Misako has just finished the 23rd annual Spiritual Run from Lil Tokyo to Manzanar in California as a member of the 50/­500 committee which organizes the Spiritual Run. She is also a sundancer practicing Native American Ceremony. Misako also has a community class of Tai Chi and Qi Gong in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute and the Long Beach Japanese Community Center. She continues to practice Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Northern Shaolin Kung Fu.

I’m going to have a special workshop of Tai chi and Qi Gong for the alexander teachers and trainees in Los Angeles, California on March 22(sun),2020.
I’m happy to share with you what I learned from my Tai chi teacher, Marvin Quon who can use Tai chi for fighting. I’ve learned from him how to move more efficiently and not to injure yourself. Those things are very familiar to the alexander people, I think.
Please come to the workshop.
Thank you.

[11/04/18]   sunday the alexander, tai chi and qi gong class in china town starts from 9am and ends 10:30am. If you have any questions, please contact me at 323-573-1472. misako

気功の八段錦のDVDを作りました。私の先生であるマービン・クウォン先生の指導のもとで作りました。これは中国でも、とても古い健康法の一つで、8つの体操を一つ一つ丁寧にすると本当に身体全部に良いという、最も短くて効果最大の健康法です。私がこのDVD を作るにあたってアレキサンダーテクニックを使い、体をラクーに伸ばして関節が柔らかくなり、筋肉が伸び、内臓がマッサージされるという気持ちのいい体験をしました。いつも、バタバタと生活していることが多い中で、八段錦をゆっくり、自分自身を自然のリズムに合わせてやるととてもいい効果が現れます。ふっと力を抜く、緩める、ゆっくりを楽しむというのが生活の中でできたら、愛のあるストレスフリーの人生が生まれるのではないでしょうか。
アレキサンダーを使ってこの八段錦のワークショップをいろいろなところでしています。グループがすでにありましたら、こちらからも出張いたします。興味のある方はどうぞご連絡ください。323-573-1472 またはFacebook でご連絡ください。
DVD は一枚$20 +郵送代($5 アメリカ国内)で販売しています。下記の住所まで$25お送りください。

Tai Chi is a Chinese Martial Art that has been refined into slow movements and is known as an exercise for good health. Qi Gong is a 5000 year old method of exercising for health and longevity in China. Both of them involve slow, gentle movements, natural breathing and mental focus. Benefits include relaxation, better circulation, improved balance, stability, and increase in energy levels. When using the Alexander Technique in these exercises you become more aware of your movements. So, you feel your body is lighter and freer and you can understand Tai Chi and Qi Gong at a deeper level. The Alexander Teacher, Misako will work with each individual to become aware of your habits and guide you to move with ease by giving hands-on guidance.
All ages and all levels are welcome.
Individual lessons are also available.
Please come to our class and enjoy exercising together for good health.
Thank you.

[11/16/14]   首の一番上の骨がアトラス。そのてっぺんは小さいくつが二つあるような形をしていて、頭をささえている。そして、”はい”と言うときにはアトラスの小さい靴たちが頭を支えてくれる。そして二番目のアクセスは、”いいえ”と言うときに、うまく動いてくれる。うまくできてるなあーとつくづく感心する。そして、背骨はすごい。波のような形をしていて、息を吸うと背骨は集まり、縮みかな、そして息を吐くときには、背骨は伸びる。これこそ、姿の勢い、姿勢ということなのだろう。そんなことを思いながら、Tai Chi, Qi Gongをするとすばらしいうごきになるし、気持ちがいい。息、生きる、気、勢いはみんな同じ語源なんだよね。

It's interesting to see how the atlas and axis work. when you say "yes" , your head rolls forward and back on the atlas gently. And when you say "no", your axis', second vertebra is working. your head is poised on top of your spine. just like a baby standing and rocking their head. if we can move like baby freely, that's a wonderful feeling.
The second picture is how the spine moves when you breathe. your spine is gathering, when you inhale. and your spine is lengthening, when you exhale. when you do Tai Chi and Qi Gong, think of these movements helps you to move freely.
