Join us for an amazing evening of Restorative Yoga, Massage and Aromatherapy. Our practice will commence in a candle lit room… and by “practice” we mean nestle down into a deep, deep space of yogic relaxation. Once settled in a Restorative Pose you will be lead through a guided meditation as Jamie goes around the room, and one by one, offers each of you massage and energy work. A specific essential oil will be chosen depending on the intention of our practice and will be offered throughout the evening. This is a unique yoga experience that is open to all levels and is guaranteed to leave you blissed out and in perfect alignment with yourself.
About Jamie Leigh: As a dancer dancing without a “dancers” body I experienced injury after injury and struggled with Western Doctors out right ignoring what I knew as my body’s truth. My intuition disregarded and my body exhausted, I turned inward and discovered that by cultivating compassion for myself and my body and being truly honest with my ego, that my body could and continues to, transcend what I ever imagined possible. I TEACH from this place, I HEAL from this place, I LIVE from this place. I have studied all over the world but there is no training nor class that has taught me as much as my own body and the bodies of my students and clients.

Freeing the neck, 7th cervical, Atlas: The neck is like a bottleneck between our brain and our torso. Unfortunately that is where we carry around lots of tension and injuries making that narrow place even narrower. That results in many unpleasant, painful and even dangerous conditions. If we can soften and heal there we may have a whole different outlook on our life.

Q&A with Malia
Aloha Jivatma, thank you for sitting down with me. Can I ask you first, what does your name mean?
Jiva means life and Atma means soul. Jivatma means the incarnate divine essence in this human existence.
Do you remember your first treatment ? What was it like?
I don’t have a memory of a first treatment per say… Massage was always a part of my life… My very first memories of massage are with my mother starting at the age of 4 and up. My mother was very influential in my becoming aware of the importance and benefits of touch. She would always massage me and whenever I would get hurt (which was often, being such an energetic little girl!), she would lay her hands on me and rub off the pain. Always telling me that our hands are our greatest tools and allies.
How about your best treatment?
My best treatment was a massage I got from a friend in India. He did a fusion of Thai and regular massage. I still remember the profound effect it had on me! Read the rest of this entry »
I thought it would be a fun idea to highlight the room itself. Read on for some interesting tidbits including my Q & A with the founder of Still & Moving Center, Renee Tillotson, and a great special good through this Sunday!
Me ke aloha,
Mālia Helelā, Malu Healing Room Manager and Licensed Massage Therapist
Quote: Pythagoras said that the most divine art was that of healing. And if the healing art is most divine, it must occupy itself with the soul as well as with the body. – Appolonius
Maliaʻs Q&A with Renee:
Malia: Aloha Renee, thank you for sitting down with me. Can I ask you first, how did you decide to include a healing room at Still & Moving Center?
Renee: I’ve personally found tremendous benefits from the more traditional and/or natural healing practices such as we offer, benefits that a doctor’s pills don’t provide. Our Mission Statement ends by saying that Still & Moving Center Mission statement ‘is a healing place, a haven for renewal. Anyone who engages in the Still & Moving Center’s offerings should walk out feeling even better, in every sense, than they did when they entered.’ The Malu Healing room is one of the places at Still & Moving that help people to feel better when they walk out!
Malia: What does it take to be healthy?
Renee: Health comes from the way we live our lives, from what we eat, how we exercise, how we sleep, how we take care of ourselves. Once a person commits to living a healthy lifestyle, we want to be here to help them. The practices in our Malu Healing room – as well as the rest of Still & Moving Center – support health on every level of the whole human being.
Renee’s Health Tip: “If I go to bed upset, I tend to get sick. Gandhi advised making any apologies we need to by the end of the day. I do my best to go to bed with a clear conscience – nothing like it for a good night’s sleep! Malia, you say I laugh a lot. Laughing at my mistakes and all the silly things I do – maybe that’s part of the health tip. Goodness knows I have a lot to laugh about!”
