Poi originated with the Maori People of New Zealand. While methods and materials have changed, the priniciple is basically the same: swing something around fast enough so that the blur makes a pretty pattern.

On a serious note, poi spinning has a lot of benefits. It can be used as a performance art or a form of meditation. This activity enhances ones patience, coordination, balance, focus and it’s a good full body workout. It’s also a great way to meet and make new friends!
