POI & FLOW RETREAT AT THE CASTLE 2024

ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME

All levels of Poi, Staff Spinning, Contact Staff, Double Staff, Dance, etc., are welcome to join! We’ll offer beginning, intermediate, and advanced options for most techniques. For the Poi workshops, we split the group into different levels.

To benefit the most from this retreat, know the basic poi moves, such as 3-beat weaves (forward and backward), windmills, watermills, hip-reels, and turns butterflies (same-time, split-time), and buzzsaws.

If you can’t do some of the moves listed above, don’t worry! We will teach you that. However, if you want to be prepared, look up some tutorials (we recommend Poi Tutorials.com, start as a beginner for only 4,95 per month)

the shedule is packed with value

With an abundance of amazing teachers on board, our workshop schedule is jam-packed to give you the ultimate learning experience! We’ve skipped long breaks between sessions because let’s face it, you probably won’t be attending every single workshop (although you can). So, feel free to skip a session here and there to unwind by the pool. Of course, if you’re up for the challenge, you can attend them all, but be warned: your brain might feel a bit like spaghetti after a whirlwind of workshops!

try a new prop!

Get ready to dive into a world of prop-tastic possibilities with our abundance of workshops covering a wide range of props! And guess what? You don’t even need to have your own because we’ve got you covered! You can borrow most of the props we offer, including Poi, Dragon Staff, Staff Spinning Staff, Fans, Floating Wand, Juggling Balls, Double Staff, and Yoga Mats. We’ll do our best to arrange enough Contact Staffs for borrowing too…

Movement and Juggling
Thibault Michel

Picture this: it’s the summer of 2014, and young Thibault stumbles upon the art of juggling in the most unexpected way – with three socks rolled into a ball by none other than his dear mom! Little did he know, this chance encounter would spark a lifelong passion. With a little self-teaching and a whole lot of determination, Thibault honed his skills before taking the plunge into the world of circus arts. From amateur school shenanigans in Chambéry to the big leagues at the regional circus arts center in Lomme, Thibault’s journey was nothing short of epic. With each step of the way, he infused his juggling prowess with a touch of contemporary dance flair, redefining what it means to be a juggler one sock at a time!

These days Thibault isn’t just juggling socks anymore – he’s taking his talents on tour with two amazing companies! Compagnie Circographie, and he teams up with the incredible Nicanor de Elia, bringing his unique blend of juggling and contemporary dance to stages near and far. Thibault’s got a passion project close to his heart with Compagnie C’est ça!, where he’s cooking up some seriously absurd circus magic that’ll leave you in stitches. So, buckle up and get ready for a wild ride filled with laughter, jaw-dropping skills, and maybe even a flying sock or two!

dragon staff
Fabio

His journey into the world of juggling kicked off at the tender age of 15 when he stumbled upon Diabolo and was instantly hooked. Fast forward to 2001, armed with an engineering degree from France, he set sail for the breathtaking South Pacific island of Tahiti, where he spent a glorious 15 years soaking up the sun and perfecting his craft. Amidst coconuts and coral reefs, he experimented with various props until one fateful day in 2013 when he got his hands on his first Dragon Staff. It was love at first spin! From that moment on, he was hooked, practicing tirelessly and drawing inspiration from the likes of Brettstar Galactica, Mickey Khoury, and Jeff Flowler.

A year later, he joined forces with “Te Tama Ahi,” a fiery Tahitian dance company, and set the stage ablaze at hotels, festivals, and cultural events across Polynesia. In 2016, bidding adieu to paradise, he made his way back to Europe, where he fully embraced the Dragon Staff as his calling. Swiftly gaining recognition as both a performer and instructor, he graced juggling conventions, flow festivals, and retreats worldwide.

He created Flowbonacci, his company in 2018. Armed with his spinning prowess and engineering know-how, he’s on a mission to revolutionize Dragon Staff gear for the flow community, one innovative creation at a time.

double staff, Yoga
Luke O’Connell

Let’s dive into the vibrant world of Luke, an Aussie who fell head over heels for Flow Arts and Circus when he was just a teenager, about 17 years back. Since then, he’s taken his passion for Dance and movement on an epic journey through various realms.

He is performing with Single Staff, Double Staff, Poi, Fire Fans, and Dragon Staff and also rocking it with Fire Eating and Sword.
In 2016, Luke decided to go global. He packed his bags and toured through Europe and the UK, leaving a trail of amazed spectators in his wake. Fast forward to today, and he’s chilling in the Netherlands, keeping the magic alive. He continues his path as a performer with his group ‘Luminosity’ while also collaborating with groups such as Lumino, Lights in Motion, and Super Cho.

Luke’s got big plans, and he’s pumped to share his expertise. He’s all about bringing the Zen with Yoga and Meditation sessions, and if you’re into Double Staff wizardry, he’s your guy. With his years of knowledge, he’s ready to dish out a fun and beneficial experience for everyone. Whether you’re a seasoned Flow Artist or a just starting, he’s got something for you. Expect a mix of Yoga secrets, dynamic and static stretching, flexibility tips, and strength training – all wrapped up in one fantastic package. This is going to be one retreat you won’t want to miss!

SOUnD BATH Yoga, POI NEWBIES
DAVID & SANDRA

Hey, Sandra and David here! They’re a couple traveling the world, sharing their love for movement, music, and well-being. They’ll offer gentle re-sourcing yoga classes accompanied by various instruments, sound baths, and poi classes at the castle. They believe that when one is at ease in their body, the mind and heart follow suit, leading to smoother flow in everything.

Sandra guides yoga in the evenings. She has been on the yogic path of self-exploration for the last 8 years and teaches classes where participants listen to the wisdom of the body and allow it to lead the way. The classes have gentle, soft, flowy movements mixed with resting in deep stretches where participants relax and release—a practice to connect and nourish the whole being.

Meanwhile, David brings the sound journey to the class with different instruments. The soothing sound of the Indian bamboo flute and the calming angelic frequency of the handpan will guide participants through realms of timeless presence. They will then end the class with a Savasana sound bath where they both play different healing instruments such as singing bowls, Shamanic drums, native American flutes, and harp, allowing participants to surrender and recharge themselves listening and feeling these frequencies.

David will also teach the basic fundamentals of poi spinning to total newbies. With more than 8 years of practice, David will answer all questions with pleasure and give specific exercises to make everything easier for them.
