Posted:Can someone please share with me is it possible to transition to the windmill when spinning a butterfly or 3 beat weave?

Would you just reverse 3 beat weave or split time into it?
I only seem to get to the windmill when I do the 3 beat weave into a reverse. Looks like a dodgy half fountain lol!

Posted:I bring butterfly fairly high up at face level then its easy to put one hand back behind my head to get into a fountain, do an extra beat with one arm so youre split time and just slip into it. I hope this was helpful tongue2

Posted:With the transition from butterfly, you will need to change the direction of one of the poi.

From either weave is easily doable, but reverse feels most natural.
