MATUA Instructor Training

THANK YOU for purchasing our MATUA Instructor Training.  MATUA is our version of HOT HULA fitness® for older adults.  Consistent with the HOT HULA fitness® program, the workout is inspired by the dances of the South Pacific Islands. MATUA incorporates easy to perform dance movements set to the traditional Polynesian drum beats fused with island and 60’s music.  Only previously trained HOT HULA fitness® instructors are allowed to teach MATUA after taking this MATUA online instructor training and receiving an approval to teach from Anna-Rita Sloss Enterprises.  Lessons taught in this MATUA Instructor Training are built on the foundation that you received as a HOT HULA fitness® instructors.  There are 3 simple steps to our training.  Once you complete all three, you are ready to teach HOT HULA fitness® MATUA
