November 4th and 10-12th in collaboration with mama difé

Flow comes to Mauritius!
Two events: Full day poi workshop on Nov 4th and Mini-retreat on Nov 10-12.

The aim of these events is to share the knowledge and art of flowing, and tapping into meditative states, with or without fire, using flow props, such as poi, to propagate and pass on the healing benefits of ‘flow state’. 

“Flow state describes a feeling where, under the right conditions, you become fully immersed in whatever you are doing. 

The focus that, once it becomes intense, leads to a sense of clarity: you know exactly what you want to do from one moment to the other; you get immediate feedback, it’s like a dance with yourself.” 

With this event, we’re also hoping to enforce the local fire community and support its growth.

the retreat warm-up:
FULL poi WORKSHOP day & fire jam

Full day with poi on a (shaded) beach! Suitable for beginner and intermediate levels but we will accommodate all levels. Together we’ll explore the most important fundamentals of poi spinning, program our minds to work in a circular framework, and teach our body how to follow the kinetic energy of poi so that we feel connected, within the flow.

If you need to borrow poi, there will be poi to borrow (and also for purchase)

The first (mini) retreat at mauritius!
poi & flow arts mini retreat

The first (mini) retreat in Mauritius! We’ll spend 3 days together, playing, learning, and sharing our passion for movement and flow arts, at the unique space the Green Village, in Le Morne – close to the sea, yet isolated in nature.

This 3-day event will provide more workshops than just poi – our other international artist guest, Melissa Richardson will teach fans and palm torches, we’ll do morning yoga led by Mama Difé, and Vojta will also share some staff spinning skills.

Fans and staffs will be provided, but we have a limited amount, if you can bring yours, please bring yours!

Evenings will be dedicated to fire spinning (fuel provided). We’ll talk about the safety of spinning with fire, and we’ll be happy to assist you with your first burn 🙂 If you don’t have fire props, we will lend you some.

On Saturday (which happens to be the day of the Divali celebration), you will also witness a show held by the instructors and Mama difé! After that, we’ll enjoy a small party with fire jam and DJs.

– transitions, explaining different poi concepts and branches of contemporary poi
– antispins
– basics of tosses
