Wonderful DVD!
"I really like this dvd. It doesn't teach you specific moves if that's what you're looking for. This DVD focuses on practice montages perfection of planes and movement of dance. It gives you all the information you need to gain the skills so you can incorparate any move you want into your performance without really thinkning about it. It's a don't think just dance theme and it's great!"

Interesting
"This is pretty strategic and could be taken up by beginnerish types (like me) even though it's targeted at the intermediate/advanced level. It proposes a way of looking at poi that makes it a study/outlook of building up your use of the space around you. It's fun to go and practically do if you keep in mind that poi=play. The approach is holistic and friendly and useful (if alot to remember all at once) and it tells you exactly that (the scales like music scales) rather than going into different moves as such. Nice resource to remind you how to keep your (mental) balance in learning poi that skills are only the middle step to freedom/ease of expression. 4* only cos I like the playful feel of poi but this is filmed in a gym hall strategically. The content is great though :)"

Great Tutorial!
"I watched the whole dvd through once so far. It is very thorough definitely covers many basics including warmup stretching and self-care. I can't wait to practice again! Thanks Home of Poi you are a top-notch company. I did some on-line comparison shopping before my 2nd order and no-one offered what you do at the prices you charge. Customer service has been great so far too. Love the referral stickers and business cards that come with my orders!"

Opened a new arena of Poi....
"This video is fantastic- I considered myself an intermediate poi spinner (I had learned many technical moves mostly through poipoi.info tutorials) but after I watched this tape there was a whole new range of expression I could practice and work towards. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to spice up their routines or in conjunction with tutorial videos for beginners."

Great DVD... Learning Poi with system
"I can absolutely recommend this one. I was able to improve my training by applying just the right amount of the practices shown... I think that it is also great also for people beginning with poi who can do some of the basic tricks because you have a systematic approach to poi and not the trial and error stuff...

A new beginning
"The service was excelente as usual faster than last time . I'm actually a poi beginner (almost 6 month i guess) i was practicing the tricks that i founded in diferent web pages on a daily basis but as i was getting stuck in performing most of them i decided i needed more. I realize that using this approach of learning and adding different tricks would become a never ending process making the other body expression very difficult so i found this Nicks CD that really suits to my needs . I have to confess that i was an admiror first but now i'm really impress with nick's approach to poi spinning . By doing this simple excersises shown on the CD you can enhance your abilities to a greater lever. Thanks nick for share you're experience and expertise with us"

Absolutely Solid
"Solid DVD which will open some doors in your head with poi. Breaks the art form down in to small bite-size chunks for you to decipher. Presented well and while a little long covers nearly almost everything that any beginner / intermediate / expert can relate to and use in their ever improving poi artistry. 10/10"

The Scales of Poi is Great!
"this video doesnt really tell you how to do any moves. But it does tell you how to learn to move with your poi and know your movement planes well enough to help you learn anything you'd like a must have for any dedicated spinner"

"All around excellence opens the spinner up to free form movement and away from getting stuck into pattern style moving allowing a smoother more graceful experience. Highly recommended."

Overall pretty good
"I've only looked through this dvd once and it does have some insights into spinning with more freedom rather than being locked down into set moves. I also liked the fact that Nick explores simplicity as opposed to complexity. Some great exercises for plan control and a few more things that I hadn't considered doing yet :) I was a little disapointed but that's more because I felt like i've already done my own exploring of moving circles bending plans and experimenting. Some people will really get alot out of this!"

The Scales of Poi
"Whether you are a beginner or a pro I have no doubt that you will find this a fascinating and useful guide. It takes you through all the stuff you thought you knew and opens up completely new dimensions. This is an exceptionally unusual and helpful approach to the way the poi move and are an extension of your body. I am not a natural when it comes to picking up new poi moves but this really helps your approach to things and you suddenly find that you can surprise yourself. Highly recommended. Thankyou"

GREAT video. Just what I needed!
"This is a wonderful dense video. Just what I needed to really help bring a fuller understanding of how the forces work in poi and how to use that to best advantage. I haven't finished the video yet because I'll watch a section digest it and play with it a while before moving on to the next bit. It's broken up so that it's VERY easy to do so so I can absorb it all at my own pace. Also it makes it easy to find sections to refer back to when you need help. I love the way this is taught. It really clicks for me. And I already see an improvement in the way I spin and my thoughts and feelings about it."

Excellent for the perfectionist and newbie
"The style taught in this DVD might take a little longer to get you spinning intricate weaves/ patterns. However I believe this method of learning will provide you with the ability to go further and spin without limits compared to learning set moves & combos which may get you spinning sooner. If you just want to give it a go go with a DVD that teaches you techniques/ moves right from the start. If you want to make spinning your art then buy this DVD!"
