Posted:I can't close my eyes for a second without visualizing myself spinning poi. It's amazing how every song I hear, I think of how I can spin to it. All types of music with varying tempos and sounds. Electronica, Industrial, New Age and even some Punk! I see myself spinning around a fire circle one moment, ever so graceful and then in the middle of a mosh pit the next, slamming all around. ubbloco

I think about it all the time. I now fall asleep spinning in my head. I'm very excited to be picking up the moves so quickly. Actually, I'm catching on much quicker than I expected to catch on. I truly believe that creative visualization is helping me. If you can see it, you can do it. I guess there is something to be said for hypno-therapy. ubblol

One day I'll get my ass in gear and have an amazing poi/dance routine!

Posted:.....except for the backward 3 beat weave. That one is a toughie for me. I can see it in my head. I can work through the moves, visually, but then I start swinging the pio IRL (in real life) and it's a mess. My husband says I look like I'm being attacked by killer bees. LOL!! I hit myself and keep hitting myself hoping that one of the bonks will result in a smooth reverse weave. I'll get it, I know I will. Much of my success is sheer determination. wink

Posted:Well, I sure hope you'll et us know when your routine is running on u-tube. I can't wait to see it - no matter how long it takes. ubbrollsmile

I have a jam packed schedule too. It's a bummer I don't have more time to practice. I'm aiming for at least 2-3 times a week for at least an hour or so. weavesmiley

Posted:I just hope that stringing the moves together into some sort of a choreographed routine comes more easily with time. Although I love dancing, and can dance quite well, if I don't say so myself, getting my feet to move along WITH the poi is proving difficult. I get stuck on where to move my feet and when I think too much about it - instant tangles. redface

Posted:I do this too!

Unfortunately quite often when I'm driving, which is probably not the safest of things but... meh

I'm now trying to do it on purpose with hoop, but not quite there yet, only been hooping for 2 weeks, don't think I'm doing too badly, being able to spin poi and do hat manipulation definately helps too!


Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

Posted:HA!!

Remember at Pride last year? (bloody hell the year went quickly!) and we looked at a ride and dubbed it the 'AntiSpin Ride'. It rocked!

Yup, pretty much think about spinning every waking hour. Is this healthy?

Posted:The other night I couldn't sleep because I could only think of how to hoop and spin poi at the same time. I had just hooped for the first time since knowing what was possible with it. I figured out the secret in my head, now I have to figure how to keep the hoop up in real life.

Posted:I could have posted that first post on this thread... I'm experiencing exactly the same.

The difference is i can't dance but poi is teaching me to... When i'm spinning on music after a while i start moving in harmony with the poi and when i put away the poi and keep moving like that i'm just dancing but i wouldn't know what to do with my arms ubblol

hooray for weavesmiley !
