It's never too late to play

Poi, a ball on a cord spun in circular patterns around the body, is a fun, affordable, accessible way to keep the body and mind fit as we age. Dr. Kate Riegle van West, founder of SpinPoi, conducted the first rigorous scientific research on the health benefits of poi for older adults, finding improvements in grip strength, balance, and attention after just one month of poi practice. Kate is currently a poi/health consultant, helping implement poi programs worldwide with a focus on aged care facilities.
