About Heartspire Classes: The first time I taught this workshop everyone was surprised by how a full body stretching experience felt like a full body massage. The stretching techniques you learn will include stretching the fascia of the back, hips, and chest. Then there are amazing joint rotations that use maximum range of motion techniques to stretch every muscle that attaches into the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers, along with the hips, knees, and ankles.
Saturday--Heartspire Lomi Loku -- Deep Tissue Hawaiian Style for the Back: In this Heartspire workshop you will learn the flow, rhythm, and dance-like deep lomilomi loku approach to relaxing, aligning and freeing up the back creating a fabulous and effective session for your clients. Use of forearms, ulna, elbow, soft knuckles, fingers and thumbs are all a part of this work as well as dynamic and proper body mechanics. You will learn to give your clients strokes that will warm, circulate, compress, x-fiber, pin and stretch, and myofascially release and free up the spine, metaphysically clearing the future of who they are. Not only will you enjoy learning this work but you will appreciate receiving and feeling the effectiveness of lomi loku in your own body as well.
Sunday--Heartspire Lomilomi Heaven and Earth - Head, Hands, and Feet: Learn the Heartspire Hawaiian Lomilomi approach passed down through several lineages to physically and energetically open and access connection to the heavens (hands and head), and earth (feet).
You will learn the Hawaiian approach to the face, scalp, and bone sutures of the head (Po). With the Hands – you will learn lomilomi thumbs, bone washing and circular stretching with the digits. With the feet you will learn Aunty Margaret’s famous foot routine along with a few other special additions from our other lomilomi teachers.
These unique lomilomi techniques of opening the extremities allow for powerful freedom and release. The intention is to open and connect metaphysically to heaven and earth, to give and receive more freely and move forward in action, being Spirit’s hands and feet in the world.
Each Heartspire Lomilomi class includes learning about traditional Hawaiian values that are the foundation of the healing art of lomilomi, a blessing chant, the metaphysical story of the work, along with the bodywork techniques. You will have the opportunity to be deeply touched by the healing love that comes through the Aloha Spirit of Lomilomi.
