What is the workshop about?

We all want to feel connected, and as it is induced by every poster and advertisement around us, we especially want this around periods like Valentine’s Day.

Lomi Lomi massage is an ancient Hawaiian tradition that is based on being connected to yourself and to another one in a loving way. This workshop will introduce you into the beautiful world of connectedness that can serve as a foundation to offer healing touch and massage.

What can I expect?

To warm up, we’ll use the power of movement and dance to arrive into our bodies. Through a set of simple, safe and fun exercises we will practice how to make and deepen connection with another person. Finally, we will work with each other’s arms to learn the inner preparation and the various types of touches that define the quality of a good massage.

What will I gain from the workshop?

  • An experience of feeling alive and vibrant in your body.
  • Being more connected to yourself.
  • Practice how to meet another person beyond your judgments.
  • An approach and easy-to-use exercises that can prepare you to offer high quality massages even without becoming a professional.
Who is it for?
This workshop is for all those looking to feel present in their bodies and who would like to learn practical ways to connect to themselves and to others through touch and massage.

sound + movement – a synergic exploration of the chakras

3-hr workshop at 2pm on the 9th December at triyoga Camden

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” Nikola Tesla

 

In today’s world, it is almost a cliché to say that everything is ‘vibration’, yet it would be difficult for most of us to say we have experienced this statement fully.

This workshop will combine asana and sound to create a physical experience, so you may become aware of how the vibration of various sounds can alter your perception of your body – and by that your experience of the world.

We will do this by focusing on the chakras, exploring a sequence of asanas and unique tones that accompany each one.

The asanas serve to awaken the chakra’s surrounding joints, endocrine glands, and muscles. The tones will be held long enough for participants to feel the powerful vibrational effect they have on the related chakra, and then the asana sequence for that chakra will be repeated. You will be able to feel a difference in the asana sequence from before you chanted to after, hopefully giving you a better understanding of how sound can alter your experience of your body.

The Spirit of Lomi Lomi – 1-day intro at Triyoga Soho on the 28th July 2018.

****

Open to all. No previous knowledge of massages is needed. £75

Lomi Lomi massage has been practised on the islands of Hawaii for hundreds and hundreds of years. It is part of an ancient tradition where the body is ’washed’ by waves of healing and loving strokes and where one can connect to the deepest sense of themselves.

The word ’Lomi’ simply means massage covering a very wide range of styles and flavours of this form of sacred bodywork. The linking element is not only in the moves, but more so in the approach with which one practises Lomi Lomi. The focus is on how we can be fully present with another person and how we can unconditionally accept and love the process we are in.The Hawaiian elders described this process as being part of the family. By this they didn’t only mean actual family members, but everything that surronds us, every thought and feeling arising, everything that you can see, hear, smell, breathe, touch and sense – the whole experience of existence. The magic of practising Lomi Lomi is finding how you can adjust yourself in a way that affects eveything else (not just the person on the massage table) in a loving and unassuming way.

In this one-day workshop you will learn:
• about the ancient tradition and history of Lomi Lomi
• how to be fully present with another person
• how to relate to and touch another body with unconditional acceptance
• how to see another person without being taken by our judgments, and how to allow yourself to be seen
• what are the passive and active aspects of ’surrender’
• why Lomi Lomi is called the massage of ’loving hands’

Through a mixture of short talks, interactive exercises and demonstrations you will get to know and optionally to experiment with the basics of this form of sacred bodywork
