Heartspire Lomilomi Full Body with Story Retreat with Kim Hartley

Instructor: Kim Hartley, LMT; NCBTMB #450029-06

Lomilomi offers an opportunity to change up the flow and creativity of your work. During our studies over the last 25 years, 7 of our 12 teachers have been men, so this work is very conducive to both women and men. Lomilomi draws on the Hawaiian martial art form of Lua and the dance form of hula. The Hawaiian strokes use soft/deep techniques through bodyweight/leverage, which include the use of the soft underbelly and the ulna blade of the forearm, elbows, hands, soft knuckles, and fingers. Balancing the masculine/feminine/child is part of the Metaphysical story of the work, along with prayer, intention, and learning a Hawaiian Blessing Chant about Aloha. Being at Heartspire fosters rest and rejuvenation through good bodywork, connections with other bodyworkers, time to soak in the hot tub, walk on the meditation trail, and share fabulous potluck meals.

The Hartley's have 8 spaces available for students who would like to stay over night Friday and Saturday in the Hartley's home -- there are 12 places available in the class. This free lodging is provided on a first come, first serve basis so register early. Their home is on 9 beautiful wooded acres.
