Support the Takaya Institute

We are a family-owned educational organization dedicated to promoting kindness and healing in the world by teaching people to use  Somatic healing practices.

Founded by William "Oji" Davis together with his daughter Aimee Takaya and his nephew, Seiji OshenZa, the Takaya Institute For Somatic Healing Arts is here to teach the world about the profound healing that can occur through Clinical Somatic Education. Clinical Somatic Education is a movement based physical training that is proven to help individuals regain motor sensory control over their bodies, improve posture and release chronic muscular pain and tension quickly, naturally and easily. In other words it is a method that enhances that user's ability to heal themselves through awareness and consciousness. The effects can be powerful when Somatics is practiced regularly over time which can bring about near permanent relief from chronic issues.

All of our members believe that the world needs these somatic practices because all people deserve to feel free, able, healthy and joyful.
Up until recently the Institute has supported itself by our members doing individual sessions with clients and by offering group classes in Clinical Somatic Education. Now, during the COVID 19 global crisis, our practitioners can no longer see people in person or teach group classes. We are now moving our work online, by offering free live classes on social media to continue the important task of teaching the world these wonderful healing practices.
Right now our practitioners struggle to pay their bills as well as covering the costs of running our business (website, materials, subscriptions, etc.), as well as growing it.

That is why the Takaya Institute needs your help! Donating to this Gofundme will help us stay afloat and grow our business during this trying time. We also wish to continue offering FREE Somatics Classes online so that anybody with an internet connection can benefit from this amazing method! You can also support us by visiting our website by booking a virtual session with our practitioners.

We appreciate your kindness and generosity! Be well and joyful.
