What People Are Saying

When I started spinning poi I noticed my thinking change to a more positive tone, and I felt my depression, stress and anxiety disappear. Poi helped build my self confidence, not to mention all the exercise I am getting on a regular basis.

Erika Anderson

Poi has always been something I can lose myself in, and find myself in. It’s one of the most valuable tools I have to ground my emotions, distract from anxiety, and refocus myself – it’s a mental sanctuary.

Neebha Budhoo

My passage into the art of poi has been beyond motivational, it has improved my overall physical, mental and spiritual health and given me the tools to maintain long term physical zen.

“Sitting is the New Smoking”

Sitting for long periods of time — such as at a desk, behind the wheel, or in front of a screen — has been linked with a number of health concerns such as heart disease, diabetes, and depression. In an article by the Mayo Clinic, analysis showed that sitting for more than 8 hours a day with no physical activity posed a risk of dying similar to the risks of dying from obesity and smoking

The good news is, physical activity can actually counter the effects of too much sitting. Getting up and moving, even gentle leisurely movement, can have a profound impact on your physical and mental wellbeing. An activity like poi is the perfect way to break up long periods of sitting, and can easily be done in short stints either at home or at work..
