Handles for Socks 

I’ve been noticing many of you looking for Poi handles for Sock poi.  It’s pretty easy to add any of the ones below from homeofpoi. Poke the thin end through and just tie a knot. The work as they should.  You have the option of swivels too for hyper-loops and orbitals. The door knob looking handle is slightly weighted and so good for throws!

Beginner Poi: Tips and Tricks

In Poi for beginners on December 16, 2011 at 2:00 pm



Basic Beginner Moves

If you have a preference for Swinging by the sides of you (weaving) it’s good to start with these videos:

  1. The Weave (1 Hand BW)
  2. The Weave (1 Hand FW)
  3. 3 Beat Weave (FW)
  4. 3 Beat Weave (BW)

If you prefer Swinging in front of you (butterflies and reels) these are the easiest moves to start with:

  1. The Butterfly
  2. Angel Wings
  3. Hip Reels
  4. Shoulder Reels
  5. Reel Turns

Switching from Front to Side Swinging

Hip and shoulders reels slide nicely in to weaves but what about butterflies to weaves? There’s a couple of fun ways to do this. It will really free up your flow when you can switch. Super easy too.

  1. Wrist Stops (also hips, thighs, arms)
  2. Stalls

Buying Poi for the first time

You will hit yourself a LOT. Think about Softness!

Sock Poi

Great for practices as they detangle themselves quite easily! Generally come with light-weight tennis balls but you can slip anything inside I use my socks with small soft juggling balls that I bought from Amazon They are a perfect weight and Pain free!
