Cultural Indulgence Activities

Activities

HAKU

“Haku,” the people’s crown, normally used to honor someone special during an occasion. The haku lei is an assortment of vibrant colors with breathtaking patterns of flowers and greenery. Poerava Ori Nui ensures the freshest natural resources for you to sew into your personalized haku for a lush tropical crown.

LEI

You’ll absolutely be delighted when learning to make a lei the Hawaiian way. Exploring the various types of ti-leaf, you will learn the art of ti-leaf lei making. This lei will stay fresh with little preservation techniques, allowing you to proudly wear your handmade creation. Over time, the lei will dry and its color will fade, but it will never lose the significance and beauty of our experience together.

UKULELE

Before we start strumming away, we’ll go over basic hand positions necessary to play the ukulele properly. Once we’ve got that down, the first ukulele chord will be just as easy as the next. With a little practice changing finger patterns between chords, you will be singing along to your first song in no time. You’ll be excited to return home to show off all you’ve learned on your vacation to Maui.

WEAVING

Weave your own coconut hat, and wear it during the remainder of your stay in Hawaii, heck, wear it on the plane ride home. Our experienced weaving practitioners will guide you from start to finish. You’ll leave us with a frond woven to wearable perfection

HULA

Countless luau performances feature the art of hula and all its grace purely to entertain but overlook the true beauty that lay within. For every phrase, there’s a motion; for every motion tells a story. Poerava Ori Nui will bridge the gap between an angelic melody and elegant movement with understanding of the story behind the song. Step-by-step, you will learn the basic footwork and hand motions commonly used in hula. You’ll truly build a connection to this cultural memory in the ambiance of Aloha.

ORI

Who doesn’t want to sway as Tahitians do? The secrets we reveal to Tahiti’s hypnotizing hips will have you wanting more. It’s the perfect time for all women to truly explore their sassy but classy feminine side. Perhaps a light workout to end the day right. No matter the circumstance, every class will be a blast. 

Don't just take our word for it.
