Art of Staff for beginners (that's me:)Reviewer: Brooke Alexander from Australia
I'd only spun a few times before viewing this excellent DVD, which has helped transformed interest into passion.
"Art of Staff" is a fine resource for someone starting out in this exciting art form. The presentation is clear, sensible and very easy to follow. It provides strong grounding in some essential skills that I can already see will form the basis of my staff practice for a long time to come. Part of the fun, for me, lies in observing how the seemingly simple movements in this DVD naturally lead on to more complicated movements as they are practiced. Highly recommended.
"Sage: Behind the Flame" is, genuinely, inspirational. Sage is a powerful and imaginative performer, and her disucussion of the spiritual side of fire spinning resonates well with my own views. Magical.
Can I give more stars?Reviewer: Brooke Alexander from Australia
I make many on-line purchases, but I've rarely (never?) experienced any so smoooth and hassle free as those with HOP. I'm amazed by the speed with which orders are filled and dispatched. I must also commend HOP's approach to packaging. My staff arrived in perfect condition - and on unwrapping it, I saw why. Thank you:)
Mind officially blown!Reviewer: Kash from United Kingdom
This DVD has completely changed the way I look at poi spinning.
I literally watched this through once, went outside for a quick spin, and it was like a door had been unlocked in my brain and suddenly new possibilities were pouring in.
Watching this and working with the exercises has changed me from a "spinning person" who learns formations and tries to link them together with an element of grace, into one who is beginning to just dance with the poi discovering new formations as I go. I have gained a much clearer understanding of planes and timing, and can confidently just spin the poi around without whacking myself in the head or getting wrapped up whenever I stray too far from my learned formations.
It is so refreshing to see poi taught in this way, and I really feel that my potential as a spinner has been unleashed leaving infinite possibilities for learning ahead of me.
