Origins of our art, the Poi

The Poi is a New Zealand discipline of Maori origin that is born with the intent to harmonize and coordinate the movements of the body, seeking a physical and mental benefit. Everything takes place with music, which is our guide in this wonderful and pleasant experience.

The exercise consists in making countless evolutions with a pair of tools: the poi. These are formed by a latch handle and a chain at the end of which is hooked a small sphere that can be made with several materials and can have different weights, this is particularly true for beginners who experiment poi for the first time.

Holistic benefits

The poi is also a discipline from which you can experience innumerable physical and mental benefits. Through progressive movement and learning, you have the opportunity to extend your energy, reaching a state of true “dynamic meditation” combined with absolute fun.

Human beings are made of energy and live in a world made of energy. The vortexes that create as the poi is in motion, massage our energetic nucleus, generating a state of euphoria and well-being. The nervous system is awakened and gives vitality and charge to the whole body.
