Course Instructor/TrainerTamaki(たまき)

Hello, I am very pleased that you are interested in my KaQiLa course. My name is Tamaki Sugata and I have been teaching KaQiLa in Berlin since 2012. Since 2019 I am a certified instructor for KaQiLa.

I teach all KaQiLa methods: Besides KaQiLa on the yoga mat, also KaQiLa on the chair, KaQiLa on the stool and KaQiLa strength training (Ce-rr-lus). Ce-rr-lus is a training method that strengthens the body by increasing muscle control and improving blood circulation. Through regular instructor trainings, I always refresh and deepen my knowledge in all areas and I’ll never stop learning.

Dance and movement have always played a big role in my life. I have tried out many things and it is great fun for me to have new movement experiences.

I studied physical education and dance education at university. After that, I worked at various academies and universities in Japan as a dance teacher and gymnastics instructor. At the same time, I took several bodywork and dance courses, such as Alexander Technique, Naikantekishintaigihou, a special Japanese bodywork, modern dance, contemporary dance, ballet, African dance and Japanese folk dance.

Through my dance bodywork and KaQiLa studies I have had many opportunities to realize how much joy it gives me to share these experiences with others. It is also my pleasure to support people in strengthening and maintaining their health.

I am confident that you will enjoy participating in my classes. My gentle voice, the clear instructions and the well-coordinated exercise units will contribute to you going home completely relaxed and with a good feeling after each course.

I would be very happy to see you in my classes.

Course Instructor Yuki(ゆき)

Hello, thank you for your interest in KaQiLa Exercise! 

I am Yuki and a certified KaQiLa course instructor in Berlin. I am currently teaching several KaQiLa classes on the yoga mat.

I realised how great KaQiLa is after attending classes as a participant for 3 years. Then I started training to be a KaQiLa instructor because I wanted to share the happiness of relieving pain and maintaining a healthy body through KaQiLa with as many people as possible.

KaQiLa consists of simple movements that anyone can do, but all movements are anatomically supported. And more importantly, the results can be noticed immediately. I have received many positive comments from my participants. 

 -The pain from broken ribs is no longer there! 

 -The neck movement has improved and the arm can now be lifted! 

 -Headaches that lasted for several days are completely gone in one go! 

 -Stiff shoulders and neck have improved significantly! 

 -Posture has significantly improved! 

 -The back pain has decreased and the hip joint pain is gone! 

Many of my participants tell me after the class that they had a great time in class and are already looking forward to the next time! KaQiLa is just so much fun.

There are more than 600 different movements of KaQiLa. I will continue to improve my courses to meet your individual needs. The main aim is to put a big smile on your face and to help you get healthier for a longer period of time.

I look forward to seeing you all in one of my classes!

Founder of KaQiLa己抄呼~Misako~

Misako has been at the forefront of a variety of exercises and health coaching. However, in 1996 she was diagnosed with a thyroid tumour and due to the dysfunction of the thyroid gland, she was unable to move her body as much as she wanted to and suffered from fatigue and dizziness. As a result, she began researching ways to improve the health of people who are unable to move their bodies as much as they would like, or who want to exercise but cannot, without putting too much strain on their bodies. She therefore focused on the joints rather than the muscles. By studying the function of bones and joints, she developed the new concept of "moving the ribs". All the exercise units she created are anatomically supported. In 2009, she had completed her studies and presented them to the public.
