    Thank you so much for the wonderful hula class! The movements were so gentle and relaxing. I felt as if I were a part of the scenery we were describing.

    Learning to live Aloha has brought profound changes in my life, within a very short time. The Hawaiian Hula is grounding and balancing to the mind and body - many physical "aches and pain" have been greatly reduced. My self esteem has increased....Hula is supportive of curvaceous femininity. I have made peace with my body, finally. My health and body image are improving day by day. The 'Ohana or family of sisters in the Halau under the direction of our Hula Instructor, Kaleo, is truly supportive and loving. Being a part of The Heart of Aloha is definitely enhanced my life's journey.

    I was thrilled to discover the beauty and sacredness of the Hawaiian Hula and it's traditions! It is like a moving, flowing, dancing meditation, honoring Life, Love and the Great Spirit. Kaleo is a wonderful dedicated teacher with much passion for sharing the tradition with the stories, chants, and beautiful dance. I want to keep learning more hulas as each seems to be more beautiful and inspiring!

    Kaleo is an incredible guide to the wonderfully rich culture and traditions of the Hawaiian people. Her passion for hula is infectious and one feels oneself being transformed by this sensuous, graceful moving meditation. Hula has helped me overcome physical limitation and injury, feeling empowered and radiant.

    Aloha e Kaleo. It was wonderful to re-connect and to get to know each other and our current hopes and dreams for each of our non-traditional Halau. My alakaʻi D Kainani Porter expressed joy in meeting you and your haumana, and especially in making more island connections who may possibly even be ohana. Mahalo nui loa for accepting us into your classroom and sharing the Spirit of Aloha with us. You are indeed a wonderfully spiritual leader and I look forward to many years of deep appreciation for each other and our collaborative efforts! Me ke Aloha Pumehana,

    Thanks so much for the wonderful performance you gave us for our Luau in the Mountains fundraising event. It was enjoyed by all and it helped us raise over $2,000 to support Geriatric Medicine for MAHEC.

    On Sept 10 2016 I gave Valerie Rose, who is a family friend, a Homecoming/Fundraiser and the theme was a Luau. Valerie was in a car accident back in April. She fought for her life and is now paralyzed. She is a young mother of 2 small children and loves the Summer season; so considering she was in the hospital the entire time, we decided to give her a Luau so she could enjoy it with her children and friends before it was officially over! These ladies came out and performed and were awesome! They went above and beyond for Valerie and to make our party feel complete. Before the night was over we felt as though we knew them personally and I'd recommend them to anyone! Thank you ladies for putting that smile on Valerie's face, that we were all praying to one day get to see again !

    I am so glad to have had the opportunity to experience a luau with you! I was so taken by the messages you shared with us and how truly this comes through your heart….you make dancing the hula so easy and fun! It was perfect for a perfect party! After the party, I was just in tears from the whole experience. … The dance seems to open hearts as that was how all of you felt to me. I know you have a mission and I so wish you the best in accomplishing that. Mahalo! May the Spirit of Hawaii always be with you!

    The first time Kaleo shared her Hawaiian stories and Hula with us, we fell completely in love with her. Her kind spirit and the gentleness of her words and thoughts just make our hearts rejoice. When we think of fun things to offer to our residents, she is one of the first persons who come to mind to have here again - because of that gentle spirit; and because after the show, there were smiles on everyone's faces. It was as if our spirit was lifted up.
