Poi? What is Poi? POI is one of the best things you can ever discover, AND the Maori word for ball on a cord .

The POI was used, many years ago, by the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand to increase their flexibility and strength in their hands and arms as well as improving coordination.

Wahine (female) dancers perform the Maori POI, a dance performed with balls attached to flax strings, swung rhythmically. The POI dance was originally used by the Maori women for keeping their hands flexible for weaving and by the men for strength and coordination required during battle.

The above Fabric Poi are more thought of as International Poi . Hand made using a variety of modern fabrics and lasting materials.

Pendulum Poi - Flex?

What is the difference between flex and regular Pendulum Poi?
The 'Flex' uses a 6mm Polyester Rope which as the name implies provides a more flexible cord.
The regular Pendulum Poi uses a thicker 8mm Polyester Rope, which can help with vertical stalls or any moves requiring a stiffer rope/cord.

Benefits of Poi

Poi is a great low impact exercise for the body, improves co-ordination, self-image, confidence, increases brain functionality, and proven to make you even more clever.

Doing Poi is also a great way of meeting new people, by breaking down traditional barriers and creating interest to develop new friends and relationships.

Not ideal for true beginners (like me)
"Nice weight and balance with the counterweight. They are a bit painful if you hit yourself with them, so I bought sock poi to start practicing. I'll come back to these when I have more control."

Very nice Poi, very good service.
"I really love the poi! For practicing I asked whether I could have one green and one orange poi, which was absolutely no problem. I am very happy with my purchase. The only negative thing was that the delivery took longer than 6 weeks and i had to pay an additional 17eur!! of tariffs on my 57eur order. Adding this to the shipping cost of 10eur , i payed a total of 27eur to ship two pair of poi to Germany. Maybe keep that in mind before you order even though none of that is HomeOfPoi's fault ofc."

Awesomely fun, and perfect!
"These poi balls are amazing! Especially for the price. They are strong, durable, balanced, bright and beautiful, and soft enough to not hurt when you inevitably whack yourself with them. I like the length I got, but will probably get a shorter pair as well"

Pendulum Poi
"I never knew what to expect with my spinning when purchasing these but they are incredible and helped me take my spinning to the next level. I wouldn t recommend these for beginners due to the weight of the balls would hurt more when hitting yourself. They are balanced incredibly and flow easily. Amazing product."
