MAORI POI

The Maori poi is a ball at the end of a braided rope that ancient Maori warriors of New Zealand used to condition themselves for battle. We teach poi spinning and choreography along with a range of motions. This class is fun, challenging, and will help develop flexibility, strength, and coordination in arms, hands, and wrists.
