Again begin doing the Butterfly.
Wait for the Poi to reach the bottom of its path and then on the up swing pass your left hand over your left shoulder.
Let your hand flop behind your shoulder with your palm facing towards the sky as the Poi again reaches the bottom of its path.
On the up swing bring your hand infront of your body and back to original butterfly position.
Do a few beats of Butterfly and then try it with the right hand going over the right shoulder.

Mexican Wave.

When you have the Alternate Butterfly going well try continually flopping left hand then right hand behind the back with no standard beats of Butterfly in the middle.
This will result in one Poi always infront of you and one always behind you. They will cross and swap places above your head at the top of each swing.
