Franklin Method bodywork + Acupuncture + Sound Bath

The fall season is designed to be a time of rest and rejuvenation, so treat yourself to some self-care.

We will be offering 3 different healing modalities at this event.

First, Lisa will be showing us techniques we can use to relax tight muscles and improve circulation using the Franklin Method.

Then, get ready to relax and melt as Mariya administers acupuncture during a sound bath of crystal bowls and gongs performed by Jennifer.

This is sure to be a truly transformative and healing event.

This event is a collaboration between Yoga Unplugged team member Jennifer Reuter, Mariya Gold & Lisa Ortega-Loya from On Balance.

About Mariya:

Mariya Gold is a licensed acupuncturist. She has been offering her healing services at Kailua Acupuncture Clinic since 2011. She considers it a privilege to be able to use her knowledge and experience to help people who are seeking physical, mental and spiritual balance.

About Lisa:

Lisa began her Pilates journey in California where she received a Theater/Dance degree from Cal State University, Fullerton. Managing her back pain from scoliosis, she worked for several chiropractors and discovered the Pilates technique was the only thing that helped relieve her symptoms. Lisa immersed herself in Pilates work and became one of the founding members of The Institute for the Pilates Method, the only national Pilates organization at the time.

In 1993 she opened On Balance Pilates Studio, the FIRST Pilates studio on Oahu. She has since moved to Kailua where her current studio also offers Dynamic Strength,  TRX, Floor-Barre (R) and Bones for Life (Feldenkrais based).

Lisa has conducted many workshops on Oahu and outer islands for HMSA, Alexander and Baldwin, Mid-Pacific Country Club, Ko Olina, Olelo, and YMCA. Through years of continuous study and personal practice, Lisa has developed a unique eclectic style. Her teaching integrates her rehab, dance and fitness background, and she enjoys challenging and inspiring her students  to move with grace and efficiency in their bodies. Lisa hosted the Franklin Method educators here on Oahu and they are the first group to be certified in Hawaii for the Level One Franklin Method Training. She continued with her Franklin training in Portland and is now Level Two certified.
