Testimonial - Courtney Kenny
My experience with Mākoha Mirimiri has been an amazing opportunity, I feel extremely lucky to learn the mirimiri and also have the Mākoha mirimiri experience. It has taught me the holistic approach of wellness, and the beauty a mirimiri can be when incorporating the natural environment to the mākoha dance. I had so much fun, had such a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend where I learn’t more about myself and learnt the skills needed to share the gift of Mākoha mirimiri.
This has added to my kete of learning and I am looking forward to sharing this knowledge and giving back to the tangata whenua. Ultimately it has planted a seed and I am going to take it develop it and nourish this gift. I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Elaine Denton. She is an amazing wahine and I to one day would like to be like her and give the amount of aroha she gives to everyone she meets. Thanks for being that example and thanks for being an awesome mentor.
Testimonial - Tutina Pasene
Hi my name is Tutina Pasene of Rarotongan/Tahitian/Nuiean descent; I was very fortunate, lucky and felt totally privilege to enjoy an amazingly beautiful relaxing experience with Elaine from Mākoha Mirimiri.
Coming from a background where we are pretty shy about exposing our bodies, I can totally confess that I felt totally comfortable and relaxed and not even worried about my wobbly bits, as Elaine has a special wairua about her, that makes you feel special and comfortable about yourself. Our session was very inspiring, spiritual, soothing, relaxing, healing and a total joy, with Elaine breaking out into beautiful waiata, making it even more special, leaving me feeling cleanse in so many ways. I take my hat off to Elaine for her passion; drive and belief in herself to make something she loves come alive and is now offering this all to us, while she is a mother, wife, teacher, student, cook, house cleaner, driver and everything else that goes with being a woman with family and in business.
It is also breath taking to see a young passionate Māori woman making her dream become real, by opening up Mākoha Miri Miri and offering this amazing healing experience to us all.
Thank You Elaine
