Mind officially blown!
"This DVD has completely changed the way I look at poi spinning. I literally watched this through once went outside for a quick spin and it was like a door had been unlocked in my brain and suddenly new possibilities were pouring in. Watching this and working with the exercises has changed me from a spinning person who learns formations and tries to link them together with an element of grace into one who is beginning to just dance with the poi discovering new formations as I go. I have gained a much clearer understanding of planes and timing and can confidently just spin the poi around without whacking myself in the head or getting wrapped up whenever I stray too far from my learned formations. It is so refreshing to see poi taught in this way and I really feel that my potential as a spinner has been unleashed leaving infinite possibilities for learning ahead of me."

Highly Inspirational and Information
"Great DVD. Being new to Poi I actually found this much more rewarding than learning specific moves. Since going through what Nick presented when I've decided to go on to learn a specific new move it seemed so much quicker easier and lots more fun :)"

Superb
"This was an all around winner. It was detailed but in plain language and had a logical progression on theory and technique without being boring or going so deeply into detail that you lost interest and decided to take up macrame. I felt the attitude and approach to poi expressed in this dvd to be highly motivating and inspirational as well as setting an all around good example. I wouldn't recommend this for people who have just picked up poi though but I would highly recommend this to people that have some experience and definitely want to take their spinning to the next level. Props to the PlayPoi team and Home of Poi for making it available!"

wayhey!
"Wow. Every time I watch this I wish it had been available 4 years ago when I started spinning. Best ever tutorial DVD combined with inspirational photos and video segments enough to make any poi enthusiast swoon. Words don't do this justice so once again WOW."

LOVE IT
"This dvd is wonderful for the simple reason that it IS NOT step by step instruction. Rather it OFFERS possibillities and pointers for OVERALL improvement! I was surprised but the simplistic yet intelligent tips which helped immediately. This is a fun exceptionally useful video!"

Almost ESSENTIAL for anyone who dreams of becoming great!!
"A great video that goes way past the basic video tutorials for various moves on the interent. He takes a different (and advisable) approach to poi. He show how you can gain total control and total freedom to move with poi (and how to keep in time to music)! He is a true inspiration and seems a very nice and modest guy as well! This will not teach you how to 3 beat or even 5/7 beat but will teach you excellant drills to practice that will lead to you doing a variety of flowers etc and lead to you inventing new moves! I've watched it 6 times already!"

Great DVD!
"I would say this DVD is perfect for people who has already come a bit into the world of spinning poi but want to learn more. And by more I dont mean more tricks and moves but ways to become better generally. Ways to practice control and stuff like that. The health part of it was also really interesting :)"

excellent theory dvd
"This dvd is very good if you have learned all of the tricks but want to take your skills to the next level. this dvd doesn't focus on how to do a certain trick but rather 'opens your eyes' to a different way of seeing things. its very good and recommended if you wish to become advanced with the poi."

For beginner or Pro
"This dvd shows theory aspects about things such as direction and other ways to move your hands instead of focussing on individual moves. This means you can built moves from the steps shown. Already I have started doing better isolations and stalls and ive only been at poi for 2 weeks"

Scales are good for you
"Very good DVD definitely for those who really want to focus on the fundamentals of their poi spinning. The exercises shown should help improve any trick. Good to see a DVD based on a logical system for learning rather than a collection of random tricks :)"

A must buy
"Very well thought out theories and drills. I knew about planes all along but did not think that they were as complex as they are. Compound circles are what everyone should strive for you and Nick shows you how to achieve this goal in the video. Great product."

Great for learning awesome basics
"Hi there i just wanted to say that this video is pretty nice :P Altough i tought i was going to find more advance tricks but instead i found a learning way of spinning that is sure to make you get better even for expert. Altough i personnally do agree with the fact that more difficult move contrain you in your position i beleave that they give a fluid feel when well done ;) Great for every spinner Tanx"

Excellent approach!!
"I have watched the DVD through once and am excited to try out everything in my practice. There are so many great suggestions and ideas on this DVD! I also appreciate the health/warm up info that it provided. Once of the best things about it is that Nick is really enjoying himself and his passion for the art definitely shines through. Great job Nick!!!!"
