Overview of the poi basics

Here’s a quick overview of the poi basics, to help you know if you’re ready for an intermediate workshop or retreat


Our “Beyond the Basics” courses are designed for those who can already play freely with the basics.  What do we mean by that?  Watch this video to find out.

Remember, it’s best if you can play freely with these things.  This means you should be able to do each move and transition in either direction with little effort or thought. You need to actually pick up your poi and try. Don’t just imagine you can do them, make sure!

If you can’t do any of these things, don’t worry!  You can learn online using our Beginner Series.

Need poi? We recommend Super-Sockies for beginners, Pendulum Flex Poi for tosses, and PodPoi by Flowtoys (Use pleasekeepsecret as your referral code with Flowtoys to save 5% while supporting Playpoi, thanks!!)
