New Beginnings for Kahana Hula
Since 2006, Kahana Hula has shared the Spirit of Aloha with audiences of all ages throughout the Northeast. Based out of Hartford County, Connecticut, with tremendous gratitude to Kahana Hula's fabulously talented dancers and musicians, has shared Hawaiian and Polynesian culture at hundreds of family celebrations, community and corporate events, for private organizations, schools, colleges and universities, clubs, parks and recreation, libraries, senior communities and more.
In 2017, founder of Kahana Hula, Tiare Kahana, recently made the difficult decision to retire the dance company and luau entertainment division of Kahana Hula. In order to make necessary changes in order to live with the symptoms of fibromyalgia and continue to dance hula, she is now performing as a solo dancer and teaching artist. She provides programs primarily for schools, libraries, parks and recreation, senior centers, senior-care facilities, and senior-living communities.
Tiare believes that all challenges in life have a purpose; or you have the choice to give them purpose.
As a yoga practitioner for over 30 years, Tiare's lifelong goal was to one day, teach yoga. Fibromyalgia provided valuable wisdom, knowledge and complassion that was necessary for her to acquire before becoming a yoga teacher. Fibromyalgia is a misunderstood, "mystery illness", which is difficult to diagnose and treat. As with many other illnesses, one does not necessarily "look sick". This only adds more weight to the load of those suffering with multitudes of health conditions and illnesses. Experiencing first-hand: overall body pain, weakness, fatigue, anxiety, and depression has inspired her to teach that yoga ahd hula offer benefits beyond the physical body, but to one's entire well being.
Tiare believes that it is not only her blessing, but her duty to share the healing powers that she finds in both hula and yoga, and make the healing and strengthening benefits accessible to all.
