About Heartspire Classes: Each Heartspire class stands alone allowing you to develop skills to call upon to create a profound bodywork session. Infused in each Heartspire class are foundational Hawaiian Healing Principles and the metaphysical story that are a part of what makes Hawaiian bodywork a unique approach to massage. Unless otherwise indicated, no prior lomilomi experience is required.
Saturday--Heartspire LomiLomi Prone: If you have been curious about trying lomilomi, this class teaches a full day of Hawaiian lomilomi protocol with the body laying prone including the back, hips, legs, and feet. The strokes use soft/deep techniques with bodyweight and leverage, which include the use of the soft underbelly and the ulna blade of the forearm, elbows, hands, soft knuckles, and fingers. There are also gentle stretching techniques included to increase range of motion and restore joint mobility.
Sunday--Heartspire LomiLomi Supine: In Hawaiian bodywork the front of the body represents the past of who we are. This class teaches a full day of Hawaiian Lomilomi protocol with the body laying supine including the front of the legs, arms, belly, neck, and face. The strokes use soft/deep techniques with bodyweight and leverage, which include the use of the soft underbelly and the ulna blade of the forearm, elbows, hands, soft knuckles, and fingers. There are also gentle stretching techniques included to increase range of motion and restore joint mobility. The fullness of this approach leaves the body open to move forward with freedom in the posture, and rejuvenation in the spirit.
Registration Options: Taking both prone and supine lomilomi will give you a basic full-body lomilomi routine and a beginning understanding of the work. Heartspire lomilomi draws from 12 different teachers to create an amazing style of lomilomi massage which is flowing like the ocean using rhythmic strokes as you dance around the body and lean into the work to create depth and connection.
