Individual Hawaiian massage Workshop in Waimairi Beach

This is an opportunity to look after yourself and learn a traditional Hawaiian massage Lomi Lomi Nui in the most effective way – one on one with your teacher.

During this 5-days workshop, you will not only learn the technique and philosophy of this unique bodywork, but also have an opportunity to reconnect to your own body, heart, and mind, release unconscious blocks, and restore the free flow of energy in your body and your life.

This workshop will leave you more connected, rejuvenated, balanced, and full of energy.

You will be experiencing different touch and movement modalities, practicing some Hawaiian rituals and their benefits, learning Huna principles and their application in everyday life, and of course all the basic movements and strokes of the Lomi Lomi Nui bodywork.
You will give and receive full-body massages (body and soul), relax, and soak in the Aloha spirit. You may say it is a perfect way to have a break from everyday reality and a wonderful gift for yourself to return to your ordinary life quite renewed and full of energy.

This is a workshop both for absolute beginners and for the people who continue their way toward certification. The individual approach of this training offers you the best opportunity to learn and practice at your own pace, according to your needs and abilities.
In order to take part in this workshop, you do not need to be, or even want to be a professional massage therapist. It is really good to share within a family, with a partner, or with friends. This is how Hawaiians used it.

Lomi Lomi Nui is all about energy – so at its core, it is an energetical bodywork. Everything is a form of energy. Therefore this training touches all levels – body, emotions, mind, soul, and spirit. As all of these meet in this amazing thing called the body, we may be granted access to stored memories, emotions, and visions, then gently release them, letting go of all that no longer serves us. This massage also works with intention – consciously inviting your mind to make the changes you want in your life. It is truly a holistic approach, a powerful and pleasurable gateway to self-love and co-creation with the Universe.

When you really tune in and give this message from your heart space, it will also strengthen you. You do not need to be physically strong or fit to be able to learn it – as is the case with some other modalities of bodywork. Once you master the movement – the technique will help you go on. It is done in a meditative state of mind as a form of dance, therefore it is nourishing and rejuvenating also for the giver.

This workshop intentionally was designed for 1 max 2 participants. It gives you comfort and an individual approach. And for me, as the teacher allows me to accompany you fully in your process. This is the way I like working most. To ensure the best environment and quality of learning.

The workshops have been designed to benefit beginners and experienced bodyworkers alike.

The whole training consists of two 5-day parts: level 1 and level 2 according to the Kino Mana Training System of Aloha International, Hawaii.

‘I participated in an intensive LOMI & HUNA workshop facilitated by Izabella. She is an amazing conductor. She guided us through Lomi Lomi (Hawaiian massage) rules and gave us practical skills and knowledge. It was an unforgettable time deeply focused on women’s energy. We had space to concentrate on a massage practice and also on our own needs.
She was very patient, gave us a lot of attention, and showed us how to carry our bodies gently and with love. All the girls thoroughly enjoyed that event. Definitely recommend Izabella as a teacher.’
