Playing with Poi is more than just a beautiful art. When I first started I didn't realize there were so many benefits to Poi.

With time, as I got more advanced, and my training routine became more intense, I noticed it worked my body more and more. Before I knew it, my muscles were toned, and I was feeling healthier. It was round about this time that I decided to look into the benefits.

I found that Poi was used, many years ago, by the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand to increase their flexibility and strength in their hands and arms as well as improving coordination. Well, it turns out there were many more advantages that modern science revealed and we are still discovering more!
