Kayla (Philadelphia, USA)

Poi helped me achieve and maintain sobriety, and helps me remain stable and forward facing. I suffer from bipolar disorder and unfortunately, chose to self-medicate with illegal substances when I first got diagnosed. I was afraid. However, I got introduced to poi by a friend (who is now my significant other!) after some practice, achieving the flow state just felt so right. Five years later I’m successful and spin daily 🙂
