Hiya PeopleI was just wondering where people most enjoy to practice poi or whatever they do? I guess for me, my back garden is obviously one, but the beach is great fun practicing! Also, is there anywhere unusual you have practiced before?Keep Smiling

i was in old navy (clothing store) that had dog chew toys also in the back. They were made of rope about 2 1/2 ft long with a loop on one end and a large ball of rope on the other. My wife was shopping forever, i picked one up and started spinning it, then picked up the other. They were perfect! I walked around practicing for about 45 minutes. I did recieve some strange looks though..hee hee"S"------------------"When a Man Lies He Murders Some Part of the World These Are the PaleDeaths Which Men Miscall Their Lives All this I Cannot Bear to Witness Any Longer Cannot the Kingdom of Salvation Take Me Home"

I walked all the way through brixton at 10pm tonight, with glowstick poi, on my own. Funnnnn.Somehow, it's impossible to feel hard while swinging poi (uberpoi++ being the obvious exception here).I like practicing on Primrose Hill, but you can't do fire there [image]https://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/images/icons/blush.gif">(------------------[/image] - William ShakespeareCheck out my Online Gallery!

Anywhere and everywhere! I can't remember how many umbrella's I've broken doing staff moves, or how many wierd things i've juggled with just coz there was nothing much to do.I'm well known for doing staff moves while waiting for the bus or walking along the road. And also for unicycling home from work during summer...But my all-time favourite place to practice (as well as busk) has to be Aotea Square here in central Auckland.It's only a 5 min walk (1 min unicycle) from where I live, and has a ring of three wide cobbled steps going down towards it that makes a perfect visual barreir for people getting too close. As it's got heaps of foot-traffic, I often meet up with other firey's, buskers/performers/jugglers etc and can learn heaps of all of them. Plus, I tend to put a hat down even when practising and can make money while I learn!Life just can't get any better somtimes.And then you get engaged (soppy puppy look on my face!).......------------------Charleshttps://juggling.co.nz[This message has been edited by Charles (edited 09 August 2001).]

The house I live in has basically no yard, so most of my practicing is done in public. On nice days I will head down to a local beach/park with my toys. Because it's difficult to pack a staff in a backpack, I usually end up walking and spinning at the same time, with occasional pauses to go into some full out staff play. Thus I have become "the girl with the stick" after walking through parks and city streets, into the 7-11, shopping mall, etc...That's about as unusual as I get, except for my recent tendency to pull out poi and staff in the parking lot whenever I get upset at work.

There's a loverly spot just down from my house on the foreshore of shorncliffe (where Moon Fest is held) I love that spot It's got the best energies... That place was the inspiration of the full moon gatherings... I always go down there to twirl...

and then just out from there, is a rock jetty... It's a great spot to just sit and talk to the moon and feel the wind blow over your face and the waves crashing in around you... 'tis bliss

Damn! I love Aussies!

Anyways... My all time favorite place is a little parky type place that lies at the top of a valley of mountains situated in Retiro das Pedras near the city of Minas Gerais (General Mines) Brazil... The place is a huge group of houses near the cliff of a mountain range... The paths near the cliff are covered in 'soon to be' quartz... And the rocks on the mountain are crystal as well
A place of high energy!!!

But I like spinning anywhere! Hyde park get me weird looks as does the bus stop poi session... I love doing poi at beaches and anywhere in nature!

Much love to all, Drome

I was resently in Edinburgh on a construction site
in the shadow of the Edinburgh castle.
When i had finnished working one of the forman took me on a tour of the site, and i ended up on the roof looking over Edinburgh by night that in it's self was quite amazing but i had my fire breating and staff equipment with me and the foreman allowed me to light up, that has to be my fave place, truly magical.
