Posted:Hey Poisters!
Following the first truly wonderful poi retreat, (Check out this excellent video a participant made. Nick Woolsey (Meenik here on HoP), is organising a second week of poi classes, yoga, excursions and good vibes near beautiful Ubud, in the hills of Bali! Featuring special guest Alien Jon. This is going to be a ripper!

When? May 24th-30th 2009

For those who are new to poi or have been spinning under a rock, Nick is probably the most influential, inspirational poi teacher of the last - what, decade? He is also a truly lovely person, and this will no doubt be an experience of a lifetime. I've just done his first one and am plotting to come back for the second, that's how good it was.

More details are on his Playpoi site.


Nick is considering changing the venue from the seaside one mentioned on that site to a huge studio just outside the very easy-to-be-in town of Ubud, to accommodate more people. So get in touch pronto if you are thinking to come. It really is the best holiday ever!

Who else will be hiding from the world?

You serious bro?? It would be GREAT to see you there! Let Nick know to save you a spot (there's not many) and
get booking while there's still cheap Virgin flights. I got mine for just under $400 including taxes.... mind you I am now thinking of going from Perth (dropping in at Spun Out on the way...) and tix from there are only like $200something.

Posted:I handed in my passport application the other day, and that'll take around 2 weeks to get all sorted out. I've been in email contact with Nick for several weeks now, bouncing ideas and questions off him, so he knows that I'm interested in showing up - deposits open up today I think?

In all fairness, I doubt I'll be able to show up at SpunOut as well, considering I'll be taking TWO WEEKS OFF from my 3rd year at uni and I'll need all the homework time I can get my hands on.

Posted:That is so cool that you're planning to come to Bali though. YAY!! I also am getting my passport renewed and have to change my tix cos I booked it for the previous dates. I am still not totally sure I'll do the Spun Out.. but Bali, oh yeah! It sits right after one lot of assignments and way before the next lot.. and I'm sure I'll figure a way to include it as pat of an assignment, seeing I 'handed in' Uberoz for my last one wink

Posted:Well the retreat's over now, and I can't praise it too highly. WONDERFUL learning, relaxing, beautiful place and people. I'm still in Bali, most of us are, and don;t ever want to leave. In fact, I'm seriously contemplating coming back for the next one. Yep, it was THAT good.

The next retreat is looking so popular that Nick is considering moving it to a bigger place, nearer to Ubud. SO if any of you are dithering about it, get onto him pronto so he can make the plunge with confidence. You won't regret it.

Posted:I'm hella behind this too. I only got back from Bali this morning (about 10 hours ago) and I'm already missing everyone. If there's even the slightest chance that you can go along, it's definately worth the effort.
