Rather than an in-depth lomilomi training, this is a stand-alone event for you to enjoy on a single day. Lomilomi, like all forms of healing, is an unfolding process of many steps, and this would be a good first step!
This activity begins and ends at Still & Moving Center, 1024 Queen Street, Honolulu, a community based mindful movement Center that has been offering multicultural classes, events and workshops for over 9 years, in the heart of Kaka’ako.
The activity is led by kumu hula, Mālia Helela, traditionally trained hula instructor, lomilomi practitioner and cultural advisor
The activity is offered with live simultaneous translation to Japanese.

Kumu Malia’s Puana
Kumu Mālia’s Puana approach to lomilomi focuses on settling the nervous system and integrating all parts of the body into one. Drawing on lessons from hula and lei making, students weave lomilomi massage techniques into a tailored treatment that addresses body, mind and spirit.
