dan501 @ 05:39 pm: Learn Glowstringing - Free intro in Griffith Park. Classes in poi starting in April in Hollywood
I'm more of a fire spinner than a glow sticker and I've been going to raves lately and talking to the glowstring folks and learning from them and teaching them stuff... trading ideas. I've been so impressed at how welcome I've been and how well our styles flow together. All the glowstringers I talk to about the Flow philosophy say it's right in line with the PLUR philosophy and we give big hugs! So come get your Flow and PLUR on during the daytime... learn to be one of the people at raves that's making lightshows - it's so much fun, feels so good, and is so good for you. You can do it.

For advanced glowstringers: come take our Advanced Poi ninja jedi class. You'll dig it. It's taught by Andy House - he won Home of Poi's Circles of Light video competition a couple years ago as Brother and Son. I was just in Costa Rica, teaching workshops with Nick Woolsey of Playpoi (and I'm still on the front page of his website!). If you already do fire poi, awesome! You'll fit right in. If you want to start doing fire poi, come and rock it.

The whole semester barely costs more than one night of rave... with buying a ticket, getting your costume, hat, gas, extra goodies...

Flow Arts is a HOT new fitness and meditation practice that's FUN.

Flow Arts is a hip, hot, fast growing fitness meditation practice that puts your body in balance and motion. It blends meditation, dance, exercise and play into a fun and healthful activity that moves the body and stills the mind. It's like yoga, tai chi and dance all rolled into Fun! Flow Arts improves self image, dexterity, focus, coordination, body awareness, self confidence, spatial skills and promotes brain plasticity. It is a grounding wellness practice that is also a sexy performance art. Fun, healthy and energizing classes are available in Poi, Hoop and Staff. Our website has photos, schedule, and description of the individual tools and classes.

Handrew, virtuoso pianist who's been playing since age 5 and has a Masters degree in piano:

"Flow Arts has changed the way that I practice piano in such a positive way -- it changes the way I look at my own 'limitations.' Now when I come to something in music or in life that is really difficult I find ways of breaking it down into a physical science and breathing with it."

At the end of the course, IF you are inspired to apply Flow Arts to dancing with fire, we'll take you to an optional bonus FREE graduation light-up session at a legal, public, permitted, insured fire spin gathering. We'll give you expert fire safety training and supervise to keep you safe. We'll make a photo of YOU dancing with FIRE. Check out the photos from our last Flow Temple Light Up. We'll make you an awesome keepsake photo to commemorate your first experience spinning fire. Imagine the slack-jawed stare of awe upon the face of your spouse, friends, co-workers, (future) kids, or mom when they see YOU in a picture like that!

Hope, web designer and writer:

"I totally need to do poi as a form of stress relief when my parents manage to push my buttons. It's very therapeutic. The more I play with the poi, the more I want to. dan has a unique combination of sprightly enthusiasm and non-judgmental encouragement that can help even the most uncoordinated bungler learn to spin poi."

Classes are geared at your exact level if you've never tried any Flow Arts, but advanced Flow Artists who have taken our classes have reported benefit from our novel approach. Classes will work for you even if you think you're not coordinated, not graceful, can't dance or anything else -- I've been teaching my 65 year old mother (who didn't wanna for all those reasons) and she loves it.

The testimonial photos from this page, as well as the Light Up gallery, ARE REAL PEOPLE. They're not circus freaks, they're not pro dancers, they're not pyromaniacs. They're people just like you. A few weeks ago, they hadn't done anything like this in their lives and now they are Flow Artists and Fire Dancers. YOU CAN DO IT!

Gadi, raw foodist and musician:

"I did 40 minutes of practice today and felt a continuous flow of relaxation. Once I get a good flow or rhythm, I don't want to stop. Fun Fun FUN!"

Our 6 week classes are Sundays (poi and hoop) and Wednesdays (staff) in and around Hollywood starting April 12. See our website for schedule. The low price includes a daily coaching/encouraging/motivating/reminding-to-practice phone call if you want it. It includes our commitment to your success and enjoyment.

Flow Arts practice also helps you conquer the procrastination habit. Starting now! Go to our website to sign up right now!
