Introduction to Poi

Lots of you have asked about an introduction to poi spinning, so we are really pleased to finally bring you this workshop designed to get you poi-ing with the best of them.

Poi originated with the Māori people of New Zealand, where it is still practiced today, and it involves swinging tethered weights through a variety of rhythmical and geometric patterns. Poi can be made from various materials with different handles, weights, and effects (such as fire). We’ll not be using fire in this class though!

We love poi because they give you loads of possibilities for creating shapes and patterns around your body. They are good for developing co-ordination and there are lots of cross-over patterns you can use in hula hooping (yes of course we are still thinking about hoops).


Next course coming January 2020.
