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--7 Hawaiian Strokes to Energize Your Full-Body Routine: Lomilomi offers an opportunity to change up the flow of your full body routine in a way that will inspire your clients to come back for more. These include the following 7 Hawaiian strokes:
These strokes are easy to learn and will infuse your work with a new rhythm and flow and inspire and energize your creativity at the table. Infused in the learning of each Heartspire lomilomi class are foundational Hawaiian Healing Principles and the metaphysical story that are a part of what makes Hawaiian bodywork a unique approach to massage.
Sunday--Hawaiian Stretching: In Heartspire lomilomi, the scapulas represent the altar of the mother and father within. We work with flow and flush around, on top, and underneath, lifting, stretching, opening and freeing the tissue, rooting out what does not serve from our lineage, to free up the truth of the feminine and masculine within. You will learn lomilomi techniques using flowing forearms, soft knuckles, full hands with focus on the thenar pad, along with lomilomi fingers, to address all the muscles around the scapula, the shoulder cuff, the upper back, and the pec’s. You will learn the joint rotation stretching sequence for the shoulder, elbow, and wrist as well. When the union of the sacred marriage is in place we offer our client’s the opportunity to feel open hearted and spacious in their shoulder girdle, nurtured, and contained within themselves.
These techniques are highly effective with clients of all levels of flexibility and help improve range of motion and alignment in the body while listening to the client's signals for end range. When I first learned this work, I immediately integrated it into my work because it was so effective for my own body. Infused in the learning of each Heartspire lomilomi class are foundational Hawaiian Healing Principles and the metaphysical story that are a part of what makes Hawaiian bodywork a unique approach to massage.
