Louise’s core passions are to teach Lomi Lomi Massage & Yoga which she teaches from Aloha House. Louise found Lomi Lomi Massage in South Africa many years ago in 2000 after studying psychology and travelling the world. She apprenticed with Anthea Hardwick for 4 years before being called to Hawai’i, where she completed her Teacher’s Training with Susan Pa’inui Floyd. Her love of Lomi Lomi inspired her to undergo Mastership training with Jeana Naluai in Maui.
In addition to this, Louise has studied many forms of bodywork, the connection of body, mind & spirit and also has certifications in Advanced Scuba Diving, Teaching Skills, Teaching English as a Foreign Language. In the last 10 years, Louise has also completed Yoga & Prenatal Yoga Teacher training (2010) & Aerial Yoga Teacher training (2018). In 2020, she also completed her teacher training with Stephanie Kayalar in Kambal Yoga.
After years of teaching in South Africa, she was called to Ireland in 2008 after meeting her Irish husband, Brian where she founded “Lomi Lomi Ireland - School of Hawaiian Healing Arts”. She later completed her Mastership in Lomi Lomi with her third teacher Jeana Naluai of Ho’omana Spa Maui.
But regardless of all this Louise says, “My greatest teachers are - Experience, Intuition & my children!”
