Wassa Dances with Aloha - Tune and Flow

Lara McIntosh and Marie Chong

Wassa Dance LogoPlease join us for for "Wassa Dances with Aloha" at Kalani Oceanside Retreat Center on the Big Island, Hawaii!!

About the Facilitator(s)

LARA MCINTOSH believes that anyone who moves is already a dancer. She has danced all her life. As a performer, teacher, and choreographer, Lara explores rhythm, spirit, craft, and community to unlock the movement potential in others. An active member of the Seattle drum-and-dance communities for many years, her Afro-infused dance style is inspired by travels to Brazil and Mali, West Africa. “Wassa” is the Bambara name Lara received during one of her visits to Mali. It means “one who acts for joy and fulfillment.” Her curiosity about movement and cultures, combined with a deep love for music, are lifelong muses. She offers residencies in local schools and intensive retreat-style workshops internationally. (Photo by Michael Harthorne)

MARIE CHONG has been teaching various movement-related disciplines for over 20 years: Ballet, Pilates, GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®. Marie was a professional ballet dancer which fostered a lifelong interest in healthy movement. Her knowledge of the body, kinesthetic movement, and various therapeutic modalities is an asset that she continues to develop and pass on to her students and clients. She is the Director/Owner of ARC School of Ballet and the Artistic Director of ARC Dance Company in Seattle, Washington, USA where she also works with private clients that include musicians, singers, actors, dancers, elite athletes, as well as non-professional movers to design individually-tailored healthy postural and kinesthetic improvements.

Singing with Courage

Jon Arterton

January 11, 2011 - January 16, 2011

Jon Arterton at the volcano"I'm discovering that lots of people were told not to sing as children - can you imagine?! I'm sure many of them heard far more than "Don't Sing"; they heard "Don't Speak. Don't really be." Singing is a very scary experience for many of us - it's so fraught with opportunities to make a fool of oneself.

Liz Ganz

April 18, 2010 - April 24, 2010

Nia Whitebelt Intensive

About the Facilitator(s)

Nia gives me the opportunity to live my dream and create a sacred livlihood that inspires everyone I meet to live into their greatness. As of December 3, 2009 - my dream is now activated in the Hawaiian Islands - both on Maui and in the jungle of Puna. I found Nia in 1997 after many years of searching for a way to move my body with passion and ease. My backround is in Theatre Arts, West African Dance, Modern Dance, Contact Improvisation, Contemplative Dance and early years riding horses and jumping hurdles both on and off of the horse. I have managed three Nia studios, created my own Movement/theater practice and company, become one of 16 Nia Educational Trainers and most recently worked inside of the Nia Technique company as in house White Belt Trainer, StudioNia Director and Guest Teacher. I have worked with Debbie Rosas on the Awakening The New Feminine Spirit Art Project as well as Nia 5 Stages certification and training. My personal work, beingLoved, a somatic movement meditation process, is being offered as a support and enrichment of the Nia work. I am passionate about healing, the creative process, and empowering people to find the life that most wants to live through them.

We are excited to be leading our 25th Hawaii retreat at Kalani Honua. These retreats have exceeded all our expectations, and have been truly life-changing for each couple that has attended.

FreeFall 1 - Dare to Live

Kristy Kenny

December 2, 2010 - December 6, 2010

The focus of FreeFall 1 is "body image", that is, learning to understand the masking nature of the self image and the restrictions it has over us. FreeFall 1 explores self image by stripping off this mask of coping. The "Coping Mask" is a matrix of fears, judgments, beliefs and behaviors that restrict an individual from embracing and loving life. FreeFall 1 participants will be individually assessed and facilitated through a series of exercises to move beyond these restrictions.

About the Facilitator(s)

Kristy KennyThe body and communication have been key elements for inspiring and shaping Kristy's background. She graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Special Interest Rehabilitative Medicine (Speech Pathology and Audiology). She entered into bodywork as a Massage Therapist and later became an Instructor for accredited Massage Colleges in both Alberta and British Columbia.

Extensive postgraduate studies in manual therapies eventually led her to explore a presentation by Dr. John Veltheim on The BodyTalk System. Kristy embraced this state of the art approach to synchronizing the bodymind, and quickly recognized that the BodyTalk System is truly the most holistic and complete health care system. Kristy's enthusiasm for The BodyTalk System has lead her through all the BodyTalk System Modules, the PaRama Life Sciences, Orthopedic Evaluations, and currently to the cutting-edge PaRama College Diploma Program.

Kristy's interests also include the transformational work of discovering our human potential found in the The PaRama Life Science work developed by John & Esther Veltheim. Kristy is certified to teach the PaRama Life Sciences and is a BreakThrough Level 1 Intructor, a FreeFall Level 1 Instructor, and a Mindscape Level 1 Instructor.
