Poi and Hauora
Hauora is the Māori philosophy of health. Like a house, hauora has four sides or components: taha tinana (physical), taha hinengaro (mental/emotional), taha whanau (social) and taha wairua (spiritual). Each of these components influences and supports the others, and like a house, each component needs to be strong and stable in order to stand. As a precious Māori taonga (treasure), poi equally encompasses all sides of hauora and can be used as a tool to holistically improve wellbeing.
