What is poi?
For hundreds of years the Maori people of New Zealand have practiced poi, an art form that involves swinging a weight on a cord in circles. Today there are many different styles of poi being practiced across the globe by people of all ages and abilities. There is also clinical research that shows poi is not only empowering and fun for older adults, but it improves grip strength, attention and balance.
