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.

 

マリア コ’イ’ウラオカヴァオレフア へレラ のご紹介

クム・マリアは優しい心、情愛のある教え方で世界中の生徒に愛されており、その深い知識、美しい声、このうえなく素晴らしいダンスに誰もが魅了されます。クム・マリアはウニキを経て伝統的に卒業したクム・フラ、ロミロミ従事者・指導者、そしてスティル&ムービングセンターの文化コンサルタントとして活躍しています。

クム・マリア へレラはクム・フラ プルエロ パーク氏の下、2002年にウニキ修了。クム・フラ ケオラ レイクの教えの下、オリ(伝統的ハワイアン・チャント)のトレーニングにも励みました。クム・マリアは乳幼児からクプナ(シニア)まで幅広い層の生徒にフラやオリを教え、自身のハラウ(教室)ナ・フラ・オラ・アロハを指揮しています。クム・マリアは個人的にも何千ともいうハワイ在住のフラ生徒達を指導してきました。それに付け加え、何年にもわたり、多くの日本からのフラ講師も指導してきました。その講師達もそれぞれ日本でクム・マリアの系統のフラ・スタイル、メゾット、哲学、指針を貫き、何百人という生徒を指導しています。

クム・マリアにとって、フラとロミロミへの取り組みは全く別ではなく、それぞれが相互しあい、一体となっているものだと考えます。20年のロミロミ実績をもとに、ロミロミ、フラ、プレ、オリ、レイ・メイキングをおり組んだ128時間のマッサージ・カリキュラム “プアナ・ロミロミ” を企画・展開しました。

カ・パ・オ・ロノプハのメンバーで、特にロミ・アエやハキ・キノの要素、ラ’アウ ラパ’アウやホ’オポノポノに重点をおいた、ハワイ原住民のヒーリング治療の伝統を共有する事にも携わってきました。また、リカバリー中の女性のために文化的ヒーリングクラスを提供している救世軍のウーマンズ・ウェイ・プログラムでロミロミの指導を定期的に行っています。

ハワイ文化大使・ゲストスピーカーとして、リーワード・コミュニティーカレッジ、ハワイ・ヨガ・インスティテゥート、アウトリガー・リーフ・オン・ザ・ビーチ、ミッドパシフィック・インスティテゥート、ハワイ・パシフィック大学、マノア・コテージ、ホノルル・ユースシアター、その他多数の中高生をはじめとした国際グループ、そしてスティル&ムービングセンターにおいて、講演してきた実績もあります。
現在、クム・マリア へレラはカヴァへヴェへとカリア地域を中心とした歴史的小説・三部作の研究・著作に取り組んでいます。クム・フラとロミロミ従事者として、常に“アイナ”~大地に基盤とインスピレーションを求め続けています。

Pre-registration is required. Currently accepting students. Please send an email to malia@stillandmovingcenter.com  to introduce yourself and share why you are interested in the course. Mahalo!

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.

Location: Still & Moving Center, 1024 Queen Street, Honolulu

Let’s celebrate an historic event honoring the ancient body-mind-spirit practice of yoga. We’ll watch an aerial yoga demonstration and listen to Sanskrit mantras typically used in yoga. Everyone will be invited onto mats to sample several different yoga styles. And we’ll meet and greet over refreshments and Indian pupus.

Thanks to the efforts of the Gandhi International Institute for Peace, the Hawaii Legislature has just formally recognized International Yoga Day on June 21st. As of this year, 2019, Hawaii now stands as a beacon of health and mindfulness, being the first state in the nation to do so!

Originating in India, yoga goes back thousands of years. Modern research shows that yoga adds significantly to our quality of life when done regularly with proper technique. Studies repeatedly show that yogic postures enhance body functionality, while breathing slowly in a relaxed manner, can slow our heart rate. Focusing the mind cultivates mental peace and deep insight.

“We yoga studio owners watch intense, stressed out people arrive for yoga classes every day,” says Renée Tillotson, director of Still & Moving Center. “The students leave class with a relaxed walk, better posture, smooth brow, broad smile, and a general air of enjoyment of life. What’s not to celebrate?!?”

Join us for this first ever event!

Honored Guests :

Senator Mike Gabbard and Senator Brian Taniguchi.

Elegant walking is not only beautiful but also efficient and healthy!

This workshop will relax and organize the many bones in the feet, strengthen the ankles and set the hip joints and knees in right relationship with the  feet and pelvis. In walking we coordinate many joints together, from the circles that the feet make, to the hip joint and shoulder circles, to the uprightness of the spine and the clarity of the head resting on top of it. Efficient and elegant walking requires an elasticity from the feet to the neck and vice versa. We learn how to let go of unnecessary holding and unconscious stiffening.

Eva Alewa Geueke

Students appreciate Eva’s sincere care for their health and excellence on every level. Her range of personal experience in various moving art forms and her understanding of the workings of the human body in motion are both vast.

Eva Alewa Geueke has been a guild certified Feldenkrais® practitioner for 30 years. She came to the Feldenkrais Method® as a young professional dancer and it changed her understanding of brain, body, movement and therefore, herself forever.

Eva loves to share her knowledge and love for conscious movement to help people to improve and excel in all areas of their lives.

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.

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.

Kara’s classes are inspired by over 15 years of intensive Yoga study and practice. Although she leads a challenging class, she warmly welcomes practitioners of any level to join her in this style of movement and self study. Kara infuses the class with the light of her understanding of yoga philosophy, encouraging you to bring a bright focus to your own awareness, on the mat and into your life.

Based on the teachings of Shiva Rea, Mandala Flow Yoga is a fairly brisk yet steady, safe vinyasa flow that encompasses the entire yoga mat. You move in a circular pattern (hence the name Mandala), including side-to-side as well as front-back movement, and you experience pulsations and waves in the body. These full body movements build strength in the core and hips, ring out the spine, and help to tone the legs. This is a sequence-heavy class, meaning that many postures will be linked together.  The class ends with deep floor postures, breathwork and meditation. You will leave feeling lighter, supported and uplifted.

As an international master teacher offering a 75 minute class rather than Still & Moving Center’s normal 60 minutes for Vinyasa, Kara welcomes donations after class.
