Basic Poi Lesson: Timing and Direction

Basic Poi Lesson: Timing and Direction


We're into a new week of daily poi spinning tutorials from yours truly! Today we have a poi lesson on timing and direction--one of the most important concepts in poi spinning that I'll be teaching here through the use of extensions. We're going to spend this week exploring this concept through a number of other poi spinning tricks and it'll help you better understand the potential of the tool!

1.5 Pendulum Swap

⚠️TUTORIAL TIME ⚠️ This week I bring to you this 1.5 pendulum swap thing that I picked up from the GOAT @unstoppa.flow 💖 I’m ready for IG reels to be longer than 30 seconds 🤪 but I tried to break this move down into 4 easy steps! . . I’m going to try and release one tutorial per week, and my transition series “What’s Next with Lex” will be continuing soon as well 🥰 I’ve been thinking about doing a monthly donation based, virtual workshop. If I did something like that, who would attend and help a sister out??? 😜 . . PS these poi are from @maine_flowonfire and you can use my code ALEXISMAE for a discount at checkout 💖 #poi #poitutorial #flowarts #poispinning #poispinnersofig #womenofpoi #contactpoi #techpoi #tutorial #flowartsmovement #flowstagramm #hooplah #dance #howto #spinpoi

2-beats and Extensions for Poi (Basic Poi Spinning Tutorial)

2-beats for Poi Support these videos at: Learn the basics of poi spinning! Pretty much all poi tricks fall into one of two categories (and sometimes both!): flat plane moves and plane bending moves. Here, we begin to work with each one by learning static spins and extensions as well as tic-tacs, switching the poi from one side of the body to the other.
