“E whakapakari ana i te hapori, kia piki te kaha, kia piki te ora” ~ building a healthier stronger community

Kia ora! Tēnā koutou katoa… Hello! Greetings to you all

At Uekaha, we invite you to step into your space, your time, where we weave together 2 things i am very passionate about – te whakapakari o tō tātou tinana me tō tātou reo Māori - the strengthening of our bodies and our Māori language. 

We include English translation instructions to guide you through a series of movements which strengthen your taha tinana-physical body, your taha hinengaro-mental capacity (we know that gets challenged when the going gets tough!) and tō tatou reo Rangatira-the mother language of Aotearoa- New Zealand.

Here is an opportunity for us all to plant seeds, to nurture those and allow them to sprout and bloom into whatever they are to be, whatever we allow them to be.  If you have a heart for Te Reo Māori and your wellbeing, then Uekaha can become a part of your journey- your hapori tautoko, your support network.

Whether you are healing from the past, dealing with the very present, or trying to figure out who you are and where you are going- these are all very real experiences and emotions in all of us.  We hope that through joining us you can have time for you to cultivate new seeds, nurtured and blossom into a world of light for you, for your whānau and for the world.
