Aloha, E Komo Mai (Welcome)

​Island Hawaiian Studios


Hālau Makana is based at Island Hawaiian Studios, a place where the community can learn almost anything Polynesian—from music, to art, to dance. The Studio is a beautiful, light-filled space in Alameda. It is a place where our community gathers to share our mission of preserving the Hawaiian, Tahitian, and Maori cultures through dance, art and music, and to share these cultural art forms with anyone who has a desire to learn.

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique commonly used to reduce stress and relax the body from both physical and emotional traumas. It is a complementary therapy commonly used to help sports injuries, cancer patients, people with chronic illnesses, and people who suffer from extreme anxiety or depression.

Just like any other sport, dancers exert their bodies on a regular basis. Reiki can help preserve the body to avoid dance related injuries, or to aid the body in its natural healing process in areas in which injury has already occurred.
