Poi Play for adults (over16)

Poi Play for adults (over16)


Join us for a fun-filled morning of Poi Play at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery!

Poi has the perfect mix of physical and cognitive elements to keep your brain and body engaged. It’s playful. It’s rhythmic. It’s challenging (yet achievable!). And it’s backed by rigorous scientific evidence: a clinical trial found that after just one month of poi practice, participants improved their grip strength, balance, and attention

What is Poi ?

Poi is a weight on a cord, and poi spinning is the act of spinning that weight in circles around your body. Sound simple? It is!

Our talented instructors (spin poi certified) will guide you through the mesmerizing world of Poi, teaching you various techniques and tricks. So grab your friends, let loose, and get ready to twirl and spin your way to pure joy!

Poi originated with the Māori people of New Zealand, and is a cultural treasure (taonga) still practised today. We include Maori language & culture into our practice in honour of this.

FREE Bookings essential via Eventbrite
