Flag Poi

By

Poi? What is Poi? POI is one of the best things you can ever discover, AND the Maori word for ball on a cord .

The 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.

Wahine (female) dancers perform the Maori POI, a dance performed with balls attached to flax strings, swung rhythmically. The POI dance was originally used by the Maori women for keeping their hands flexible for weaving and by the men for strength and coordination required during battle.

The above Fabric Poi are more thought of as International Poi . Hand made using a variety of modern fabrics and lasting materials.

Benefits of Poi

Poi is a great low impact exercise for the body, improves co-ordination, self-image, confidence, increases brain functionality, and proven to make you even more clever.

Doing Poi is also a great way of meeting new people, by breaking down traditional barriers and creating interest to develop new friends and relationships.

Best Poi Ever
"I adore these Poi, I have them in several colors and I pick them up daily. They are lightweight and fantastic for beginners or those looking to work on some moves, my 5 year old loves running around with them too! The silk is always a bright happy color and they have their own carry pouch that is so handy for keeping them clean and with you wherever you go!!"

Love these!!!
"I looked around for a while and I got so excited when I found these. They are super graceful, fun to have if you like spinning at full length, and great for spinning outside as well. If it's windy outside it gives them more resistance, it makes it a little difficult for myself sometimes but other than that its a super great quality product and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!"

SWEET!
"Just got them today, they're very beautiful and the weight is perfect! They're NOT reccomended if you want to do tech-stuff because of the flag part but that doesn't matter for me! Probably great for adding a twist to your tech-/ contact-/ firepoi performance! Easy to handle with a nice effect. Perfect for the beginner and intermediate spinner, but I think advanced spinners as myself can learn an awful bit about technique with those! I used to have square flags when I started but the shape and material of those makes sure there's little wind resistance opposed to square ones. The pink is very brightly fluorescent and the blak part is semi-transparent which adds a nice effect. GREAT!!!"

Bought on a whim
"I'd never had an interest in flag poi, but added them to my order purely on a whim. As soon as I spun them I wished I had bought them years ago! They look awesome! They handle amazingly well! And they draw attention even more than Traditional poi (An important point for those of us who busk with flow arts). I was especially impressed with how well they handle orbitals and airwraps, their weighting and balance makes those moves effortless. Spread your wings and flow!"

Loved those flags even before we got 'em!
"My kids and I loved the flags, and we bought a set for a cousin because we knew they'd be a hit. And they were. They're durable in spite of feeling gossamer light. Slo-flo feels really cool; it's a great way to polish form before graduating to a faster set of poi, but it looks really great as its own style of the art form. Shipping was faster than expected. Thank you!"

Loving these!!
"First off, when I considered getting these, I didn't quite finish the purchase process at first, and home of poi sent me an email hoping I'd be able to try again with a link to 20 off! They are very reasonably priced anyway, so I had to go for it. And I am very satisfied - these are great for someone just starting out like me, and they arrived quickly. On top of that, home of poi has tons of great resources for learning and exploring flow art. These are good people, and I'm happy to support them! Thank you very much!!"
