This is a mixed level class for those looking to level up their transitions and explore new ways of moving. Topics will include:

  • Stalls
  • Under the leg
  • Tangles
  • Spirals
  • Wraps
  • Plane breaking
  • Quarters
  • Floats
  • Tosses
  • and more!

Note: Students are encouraged to have knob poi they can toss and poi with swivels at the handle for practicing orbitals. Please bring them to class. 

This class is loads of fun and is highly recommended for intermediate and advanced students who want to take their skills to the next level.

This class will be held in a huge studio with high ceilings. The series is a mixed level class where we will start with a basic concept and continue to build on it throughout each class and the series overall. Students are invited to take the class at their own pace and we adjust the material to accommodate each student’s needs. This series will continue to expand on the concepts by working with turns and combinations that integrate the recently acquired transitions. Remember, each class will have material for all levels and will build so students can pick up move and combinations at their own pace. It is recommended that students:

  • be able to do independent hand stalls
  • can balance on one leg while lifting the other
  • wear loose fitting cloths
  • prepare to be active, agile and do core movements

As a reminder, this and all classes at Temple of Poi are taught with the Flowology Mindset practiced rigorously.

The following videos provides a small set of examples of the type of material we will cover.

Provide your $60 non refundable deposit to register now!
