March 23 to April 5, 2013, Finca Mia, Costa Rica
This spring Nick, Banyan (plus speical guests) are offering a special new kind of poi retreat: Two weeks of self-motivated, peer-inspired paradise poi goodness: AKA Poi Love Camp!
This retreat is open to those over the age of 18 who are playing poi at an upper-intermediate or advanced level and who know what they need to practice and simply need the perfect place to practice, and people to play with! I.e. this is about peer collaboration!
Nick will still be leading classes in poi mastery, choreography, rhythm, and performance. There will also be plenty of time slots for other participants to share their own skills. Come with the attitude of sharing!
It will all take place at Finca Mia, a special ecological retreat centre up in the mountains of Costa Rica, complete with a river running through the property and fresh water springs gushing out of the earth, close to Chirripo National Park and the cloud forests. There we will set up all the "poi training stations" that we've discussed over the years: Mirrors, stall targets, stepping stones, adjustable circular walls for practicing flowers and stalls... every kind of feedback and play station you'd want to be a true poi ninja!
