About The Workshop

Poi can seem daunting when first approached – directions, timings, planes, tangled arms, and the skill of not smashing yourself in the head (or worse!). Over a two hour period Niall will teach you the fundamental aspects of poi spinning which will begin to lay a foundation for all future movement and tricks you wish to learn and practice moving forward. The workshop will cover how the poi move in relation to the body, transitioning and switching of directions and planes, and a variety of tricks along the way.
