Gibson, BC. VON 1V9 Canada



Dhyana's INNER MOVES is a center for body-mind-spirit rejuvenation on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, near Vancouver, BC. 604.886-9737

Inner Moves is an approach to life which recognizes that all the big outer manifestations of reality start from small moves within each individual, and that this inner transformation is the most profound when the entire hologram of human beingness is involved. The more pieces that are infused with the light of consciousness and put together, the larger, brighter, and clearer the individual becomes. Dhyana, MA, B.ED., NIA Black Belt, Somatic Yoga and meditation teacher, recognized this in 1982 when she became the first person to create and teach a Holistic Fitness program in Vancouver.

The spirit of Aloha pervades her life with Hawaiian hula and huna shamanism.

Lori Bru

Aloha Mana Lomi Practitioner
Kumu Lomilomi Instructor

Vernon, British Columbia, Canada


Summer of 2009 is when Lori first experienced the power and beauty of Lomilomi. Lori is very
passionate about sharing this heart centered practice. Integrating the long Lomi Heartworks
strokes and the deep joint rotations of Temple Style Lomi, she encourages you to become aware
of your body and breath, surrendering deeper into self. Lori supports her clients with a space of unconditional love and acceptance, releasing old patterning and replacing it with pure light and
love of aloha nui.

“For me it is a blessing and an honor to share the sacred art of Lomilomi, surrendering into a
receptive space, listening for guidance and support and then offering to each sacred body I touch,

the nurturing embrace of aloha.”

Gary Kekoa Dillon

with Granddaughter Emma

HSB Kumu Lomilomi
Instructor and Practitioner
Ke ala Hoku Lomilomi Practitioner

The Haven Institute,
Gabriola Island,
British Columbia, Canada



I am Kekoa Gary Dillon—in life a Lomilomi practitioner, a movement therapist and an artist in many media. I have a place in many precious family circles where the art of loving well is best learned, practiced, and transmitted to the future.

My Hawaiian name is Kekoanui’okealoha, meaning “Great Warrior of Love.” I bring to this precious bodywork both the steadfastness of a warrior and the capacity to be “hollow-boned” and humble before the ever-surprising call of Aloha/love in each person. Such an Inoa (name) is a daily promise to bring the blessings of this work to each person with great love and respect. It is accomplished through good humor and curiosity--curiosity to learn and bring forth the “fullness of being” in each person through heart conversation, breath, chant, and the great journey of Lomilomi. Together we enter into the expansive heartbeat of the present moment. May it ever be so! Whoever you are, and whatever you have done, this is a moment to reconnect with all that is heartfelt, untarnished, forever beautiful and loved in your deepest being.

Jana Lang

Aloha Mana Lomi Practitioner
Goddes of many healing gifts

Edmonton, AB, Canada


Jana is a lover of Life. She is ecstatic about being here at this special time in history on this planet, and feels blessed to be able to offer the gift of shamanic and traditional bodywork for our changing and evolving bodies and lives.

Jana began her journey into the healing field of bodywork with the inspiration of her mother, now passed, who taught her how to care deeply about the Earth, our bodies, and the preciousness of life. By the time she was 16 years old Jana was already a proficient in Reiki practice, a gentle energetic technique that affords deep relaxation, and was so inspired by the healing response to Reiki within herself and her family that she sought further training in Holistic Health at Grant MacEwan University, receiving her full certification in Reiki, Acupressure massage, and Neurolinguistic Programming, and now has her own practice as a  Certified Holistic Health Practitioner.

Being present in each moment of life as it happens within and around us is what brings Jana great joy, beyond what she ever thought possible.  Dance is Jana's way of moving through life. 
A dancer for 5 years with Edmonton's Vibe Tribe Gypsy Circus Society, she is enthralled with intuitive dance, and it's ability to heal through using a person's own intuitive movements. Her massages are often flowing, like a dance, often using breath to open, release and relax tension from the body, and give flow and movement to areas of stuckness.

She is passionate about creating community, and tending to the networks which hold us as humans together, make us strong, reflect who we are, and heal us.  She volunteers as a community organizer for a local Edmonton community, keeping community links alive close to home.

To Jana, a person's health is unique, and a precious thing to nurture, learn from, and enjoy deeply.  Each person's balance of personal wellness is an ever unfolding and changing process, a process into which it is Jana's pleasure to honor, and engage with in each client.

Jana's goal is to to ensure that each person who receives is listened to, received and massaged with a personal session to their individual body dynamics, leaving each client with the best possible outcomes for their needs. Jana delights in facilitating a playful, joyous approach to life
through engaged bodywork and energywork. The bottom line is, Jana is an amazing healer!!!

Blessings to all Beings, love and peace be with you all always!
