Mālia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helelā

Kumu Mālia is beloved by students around the globe for her kind heart and loving style of teaching, not to mention her deep knowledge, beautiful voice and exquisite dancing. She is a traditionally graduated kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner/trainer, as well as a cultural consultant for Still & Moving Center.

Malia Helela completed her hula ʻuniki (graduation) under Kumu Hula Puluʻelo Park in 2002, and studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. Malia has been teaching both practices ever since to a wide range of students, from infants to kupuna, and leading her halau (school), Nā Hula Ola Aloha. Kumu Malia has personally taught thousands of hula students in Hawaii. Additionally, the many Japanese hula teachers whom she has trained over the years teach hundreds of their own students in Japan using the style, method and philosophy of Kumu Malia’s hula lineage.

Kumu Malia considers her hula practice and lomilomi practice to be two parts of the same whole. From her 20 years of lomi experience, she developed a 128 hour massage training program of her own called Puana Lomilomi, based on the intertwined practices of lomilomi, hula, pule, oli and lei-making.

As a member of Ka Pā o Lonopūhā, Malia participates in the sharing of native Hawaiian healing arts that focus specifically on lomi aʻe and elements of haki kino, laʻau lapaʻau and hoʻoponopono. Malia regularly teaches lomilomi for the Salvation Armyʻs Womenʻs Way program representing their cultural healing classes for women in recovery.

As an ambassador and guest lecturer of Hawaiian culture, Malia has delivered presentations for Leeward Community College, the Hawaii Yoga Institute, Outrigger Reef on the Beach, Mid Pacific Institute, Hawaiʻi Pacific University, Manoa Cottage, Honolulu Theater for Youth, numerous groups of International middle and high school students and Still & Moving Center. Kumu Mālia Helelā is currently researching and writing a trilogy of historic novels centered on the Kawehewehe and Kalia area. As a kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner, she looks to the ‘āina, the land, for grounding and inspiration.

Hawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique.  Lomilomi acknowledges and appreciates the influence of Hawaii’s natural environment on its healing practices. This training provides a foundation in lomilomi that is appropriate for use in a spa setting or within the family.

Malia introduces bodywork in the first lesson, so look forward to giving and receiving massage in every session! Each weekly session builds upon the last so that lessons and themes are intertwined.

Topics in the training include, but are not limited to, Hawaiian terminology for the course, opening and closing protocols, palpation, using the bones as guides, and body systems found in nature. To complement the lomilomi massage techniques, students also learn relevant components of oli (chanting), hula (dance), pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language). Lei-making develops skills in the hands and fingers and illustrates the importance of a firm yet sensitive touch. Students will also learn the significance of the moon throughout this training.

The shoulders and the hips form the 4 corners of the body. This particular lomilomi training, entitled “Corners of the Body,” weaves in deeper work for the large joints of the shoulders and hips.  These four corners mark the boundaries of the core body and its vital organs.

This “Corners of the Body” lomilomi massage training is one of 8 complementary training programs, each 16 hours long. As a whole, her 8 complementary programs, each with its own focus, provide 128 hours of training that comprises her full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage. Malia will give this current training compressed into a single  16 hours weekend intensive.

Kumu Malia Helela’s 2 year Hula Mentorship Program

This 3-day intensive can be taken as a springboard to a 2 year mentorship program. Throughout this immersion, Kumu Malia will assess with students their suitability and interest in enrollment for her 2 year mentorship. All applicants will be required to send a letter explaining their hula experience and the reasons they are interested in the program.

Starting in the fall of 2019, Kumu Malia will teach installments of the mentorship program twice a year, in the Autumn and the Spring – usually near the March and September equinoxes. In addition to deeper training in hula and Hawaiian culture, Kumu Malia will help mentees to discover Hawaiian names for themselves.  If they already have a Hawaiian name, she will explore deeper meanings behind their names.

Lomilomi has traditionally been practiced in the home.  This two hour workshop will provide you with practical and accessible lomilomi techniques that can be safely shared with your family and friends.

Therapeutic touch begins when a mom first smoothes her hands in wonder over her growing belly. Across human experience, skills develop as parents perform endless diaper and clothing changes and learn what helps to soothe their individual keiki. The need to provide reassuring touch continues through the bumps and bruises of childhood to the aching hearts of teenage life.  Whether or not we are parents ourselves, we remember what it felt like to be young and hurting and cared for – or wanting to be cared for.

We reach out in sympathy and kindness to friends who experience pain, both physical and emotional.  We gently hold hands with precious elders who may not be moving around the way they used to.  At the heart of the human experience is a calling to care for one another, and this can be accomplished beautifully through lomilomi.

Please bring a pillow and a pareau/sarong to class.  Lessons will take place on the floor, although some massage tables will be available for those who have a hard time getting up and down.  Students are encouraged to buddy up in advance.  Not only will you be motivated to practice on each other, but different people remember different things, and you will take away a bigger picture between the two of you.  Individual attendees are also warmly welcomed, and you will be partnered up at the beginning of class.

Hawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique.  Lomilomi acknowledges and appreciates the influence of Hawaii’s natural environment on its healing practices. This training provides a foundation in lomilomi that is appropriate for use in a spa setting or within the family.

Topics in the training include, but are not limited to, Hawaiian terminology for the course, opening and closing protocols, palpation, using the bones as guides, and body systems found in nature. To complement the lomilomi massage techniques, students also learn relevant components of oli (chanting), hula (dance), pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language). Lei-making develops skills in the hands and fingers and illustrates the importance of a firm yet sensitive touch. Students will also learn the significance of the moon throughout this training.

This particular lomilomi training, focused on “Finding Your Voice”, helps you to develop your voice that is heard as well as your intuitive, inner voice.  We will explore various kinds of Hawaiian prayers and participants will learn to compose prayers for their own use. Prayer is common to all lomilomi lineages. It connects us to the divine and to the ancestors, and acknowledges that healing comes through us and not from us.

“Finding Your Voice”, is one of 8 complementary lomilomi massage training programs, each 16 hours long. Malia will give this current “Voice” training compressed  into a single weekend intensive, 16 hours long. As a whole, her 8 complementary programs, each with its own focus, provide 128 hours of training that comprise her full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage.

 

 


Kumu Malia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela  strives to live a life of grace. She began her formal training in lomilomi as a teenager. She was licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist in 1998 and as an esthetician in 2002. Her hula practice and lomilomi practice, she says, are the same. Her hula halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her ‘uniki under Pulu’elo Park, Kumu Hula,  in 2002, Kumu Malia now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Malia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under John Keola Lake, Kumu Hula. She has received her advanced lomilomi training from Kumu Keola Chan. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.

This lomilomi massage training, focused on “Finding Your Voice”, is one of 8 complementary training programs, each 16 hours long. Malia will give this current “Voice” training for 2 hours each on consecutive Sundays. Sometimes Kumu Malia compresses her training into a single weekend intensive, also 16 hours long. As a whole, her 8 complementary programs, each with its own focus, provide 128 hours of training that comprises her full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage.

 

Malia lei hulaKumu Malia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela  strives to live a life of grace. She began her formal training in lomilomi as a teenager. She was licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist in 1998 and as an esthetician in 2002. Her hula practice and lomilomi practice, she says, are the same. Her hula halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her ‘uniki under Kumu Hula Pulu’elo Park in 2002, Kumu Malia now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Malia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula John Keola Lake. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.
