SpinPoi is dedicated to improving lives through poi - a fun, accessible, affordable way to engage both the mind and body.

We conducted the first research to scientifically investigate the effects of poi on health for older adults, and continue to research and implement evidence-based poi health programs around the globe.

NEW poi/health guides are here!

Learn how poi can improve your health and tips for facilitating poi sessions with older adults.

"Practicing poi helps keep the brain alive. It's stimulating. It's fun. It requires complex actions that keep the body and mind engaged. Poi just might help delay the onset of diseases that strike in old age like dementia. If you could delay Alzheimer's onset by just five years, you could reduce its prevalence by 50 percent."

KNZM FRSNZ, Neuroscientist and Distinguished Professor
"Poi could potentially be one of the most affordable, simple and effective interventions globally to alleviate the growing amount of depression, loneliness and isolation in older adults. We have seen our older residents smile or laugh out loud, socialize and develop new friendships, and engage both their minds and their bodies despite their age and physical or cognitive abilities."

"As a neurologist and as an individual with much need for physical activity, meditation and "flow", I feel that SpinPoi’s work is very valuable. I think poi can be the next great tool to help those with anxiety, low self esteem, depression, body pain and who knows what else!”
