What is the discipline and who is it for?
Poi is originally a tool from the Maori tribe of New Zealand. 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. In today’s world it is primarily known as a performance prop in the flow arts and circus world. It is also used as a health and wellness tool in old age homes and schools in several parts of the world to improve coordination and flexibility.
