Aloha &Welcome Summer!

With vaccinations completed and the clock  already counting down on the 2-week waiting period following the shots, we were so excited and looking forward to reopening Studio HA`A at the end of May!

Then the number of Covid cases were on the rise again, with the County of Kaua`i rolling back to Tier 3 guidelines once again, limiting indoor and outdoor gatherings.  It has been a long and difficult year for so many businesses and families on Kaua`i.  Sadly, we have been vulnerable to the hardships and challenges as well. So while, we have been delayed once again, it is our plan to postpone the opening of Studio HA`A to June.

After all, the season of Kauwela is here, and we have decided to forge ahead with some of our programs, events and courses!

Registration is now open for our KUPU OLA 2021 Courses, with Modules I and VI scheduled to begin next month in June. Please note that these will be virtual programs only which will be available for Live or Replay sessions via Zoom and private Facebook group pages.  So no matter where you are located, you can take part in this special learning opportunity.  Scroll down to find the links to enroll. Register by May 28 to receive early registration tuition rates.  Tuition fees will increase at midnight, Hawai`i time.

Please check back regularly as we continue to update and add on other programs and learning opportunities daily.  Studio HA`A is located at 4558 Kukui Street in Kapa`a, Kaua`i. Just down the same street as ABC Store! Message us on Facebook, or call (808) 720-8494 for assistance!
