Manipulation: Poi Spinning 2 – The Butterfly

Difficulty: Medium

Safety Warning: Make sure you have plenty of space. Practice away from siblings, parents, pets, or breakables!

In Poi Spinning 2, Sophie teaches you a fantastic new trick called The Butterfly!

First, learn the arm movement – without using the poi – to get used to the journey of your arms. Then, you’ll gradually let your poi out and speed up your arm movements, until you are at full length.

Sophie talks you through hand positioning and how to bring the movement from your shoulders to your wrists to get that fantastic fast spinning motion! Take your time learning this move – it’s all about controlling your poi.

If you haven’t got your own poi, watch our How To Make Sock Poi video first!

You can also learn a 3-Beat Weave in our Poi Spinning 1 video with Elly.
