About Malia Helelā

Kumu Malia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela strives to live a life of grace. She began her formal training in lomilomi as a teenager. She was licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist in 1998 and as an esthetician in 2002. Her hula practice and lomilomi practice, she says, are the same. Her hula halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her ‘uniki under Kumu Hula Pulu’elo Park in 2002, Kumu Malia now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Malia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula John Keola Lake. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.
