Negative space, the area between your arms and your body, so:

Butterfly = body, arms, poi

NS Butterfly = body, poi, arms

Spin, bounce, be one with the world, because it is yours to enjoy...

negative space: the area enclosed by any completed shape

In Laymen's terms, make a hole, put something through it. wink

Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.
