A new kind of Montezuma poi retreat!

This retreat will include a 90-minute poi class with me, and and another 90-minute poi class with Eli, the awesome resident teacher at La Escuela Del Sol. The poi lessons can be combined with the Surf, Yoga, and Scuba-Diving classes offered by LEDs. And we'll be staying right down in Montezuma, near the beaches and night-life! :)

How to be a group leader for following along with the online poi classes

The vision:

People all over the world will form groups of poi enthusiasts, to follow along the beginner-series and beyond-the-basics poi courses together. Groups will meet at least once a week to practice, play, inspire each other, trouble shoot, and generally be awesome. 

What it means to be a group leader:

As a group leader, you can choose how much you want to teach. You can take a strong teaching roll if you feel confident, or you can just take the roll of community organizer, finding the space, communicating with the participants, etc. If you're a poi expert, you may take a stronger teaching roll. If you're just learning yourself, you will learn along with the others. 

The Details:

To facilitate a group, you will have to do the following:

1) Fill out this google doc! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1zrLeXWgvXjIkDh9Ij0PbsadgZTXswCu4F9tNTeVdHiI/viewform

2) Find people who want to learn! Facebook is a good way, plus email lists, plus putting up flyers or posters at community centres, dance and yoga studios, etc. I will keep sending ideas and details about spreading the word!
