Looking to level up your poi skills this Fall? Join Temple of Poi for the 2015 Fall Poi Intermediate / Advanced Boot Camp.

At the beginning of each session, we will assess where students are at, suggest different possible content and based on the feedback of the students present that night, we will co-create a fun learning experience where everyone grows their skills.


  • Space is limited so students are encouraged to sign up for the series rather than drop in.
  • We are looking for a committed group of practitioners who wish to study throughout the Fall and work on the concepts described herein.
  • This program covers the tuition for 12 regular intermediate group classes being held Tuesdays between September 15 and December  15, 2015 plus 6 Modest Monday classes being held Mondays between September 14 and December 14, 2015 and one private 30 minute session to be redeemed on or before January 15, 2016.
  • Tuition is reduced from the regular rate of $510 total ($360 for the tuesday sessions, $75 for the modest mondays and $75 for the private) for the 30 minute private and all 18 sessions to $320 paid in 4 payments of $80 (deposit below, remaining payments due in cash) on or before the 15th of January, February, March and April.
  • Note: All payments are due for package discounts even if student does not attend the classes! 


Tuesday Series Classes:

Modest Monday Schedule:

As always, at Temple of Poi we customize the material based on the students attending and work each student to their edge to the best of our ability. Your job is to show up and learn what you can rather than try to learn everything being presented, as we intentionally present more material than the student can achieve in the sessions to help keep their practice moving forward.

All sessions meet at Lines Ballet (26 7th Street, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA, USA). Monday session are held in Studio 4. Tuesdays session location TBA. All sessions are 8-9:20 officially, though we sometimes run till 9:30,

Please note: while the class topic is specific, the content is always based on the attendees in the class so every class is unique. All sessions are designed to be repeated as each session covers different content, expanding comprehension for students.
