Posted:please note that if you want to turn with your poi in a high or low reel/turn... or any move!!
then there is a simple method in which to remember and learn when to turn.
if your turning to the left and the poi if moving in a forwards motion / or turning to the right with the poi moving in a reverse movement:
then you need to have the poi in 6 o'clock position when making your turn (or moving the poi in a transition).
If your turning right with your poi moving forward or turning left with the poi moving in reverse then:
your poi need to be in the 12 o'clock positing when making your turn (or moving the poi in a transition)
This same rule applies to basically a lot of moves.
Also come to think of it, to which ever side that you want to put the poi in order to turn or move them, you need to think about how you are going to direct them. say if you are making a left turn your left poi will need to pretty much stay put! and act as an axis point, your right poi will need to start moving with you as you make a pivot with your left foot planted to the ground... as it is difficult to turn using both feet moving in opposite directions at the same time so i suggest pivoting for the time being... the same applies to turning right and pivoting with your right foot still.
Once you have learned turns and reels than you will find a new balance in movement with your poi, learning directional hand movements is essential as at some point you might want to learn through the leg turns which use the same basic movements and logic but directing one poi between your leg and as you pivot around which ever way that it will return through your legs again.
