I just returned from a week in the beautiful state of Hawaii. Having spent a week in a wonderful location such as Hawaii gave me time to reflect and appreciate. I appreciated running my toes through the baby-powder-like sand of Lanikai and swimming in cobalt blue waters. I was awestruck by the beauty of the marine life and was privileged to see and interact with them. Even being home for just a few days now, I already miss the taste of shave ice from Wailoa’s, plate lunches from Diamond Head Market & Grill, and awa from the Health Bar.
I have also been reminiscing about all the friends I made in Hawaii. The friends I made at the Honolulu Club that were eager to learn about posture and core connection. The classes I taught there were both inspirational and fun. I am excited for them as they learn the effect of physiological response plus time. Martial arts instructor Egan Inoue and his students opened their dojo (studio) to learn about the flow of energy and its impact during martial arts and grappling. I spoke with a brave family that just lost a loved one and shared with them how such a loss can impact their bodies. Dr. Ishii and the surgical staff of Queen’s Hospital were curious about the influence of posture while spending many hours performing surgery. Mr. & Mrs. Gin opened their home and hearts to me, and then shared their experience of business body language with their employees.
To all that I met, thank you for your wonderful hospitality. I am very grateful for my experiences and hope to return soon to swim in the ocean, eat fresh fish and give you more cool insights into the human body. Mahalo, Michael Luan
