Introduction to Flow Arts & Poi

We will discuss the advent of the term flow arts, and how a state of flow can be applied to our daily lives through intentional movement and meditation. After discussing flow arts and how we fit into this broad umbrella term as “flow artists” we will take an hour to enter to world of poi spinning. We will cover basics such as the four modes, direction and timing, and exercises to help improve the relationship of the left-right brain hemispheres and independent control of both arms/hands. We will finish the workshop by doing some group activities that will teach basic patterns to get participants started and on the road to becoming proficient poi spinners! Evan will bring materials for about a dozen participants.
