Body Tracing – Russian Edition

A weekend poi workshop with Ivan ‘Mel’ Gorbunov
12-13 August 2017. 12am – 6pm

Russian poi spinning experience – it’s the great story of the classic poi spinning style development. Smooth and clear original poi spinning without any juggling, rolling and extra poi – it’s a true love of russian poi-spinners and an important base for everybody who wants to be a pro! Body tracing style is the sweetest part of this great knowledge. I’m gonna get you through the whole world of the body tracing experience – from the very first moves to the unlimited capabilities. My main goal is to set your hands free to move, to open new space around your body and to make you feel your own galaxy with many orbits for your poi planets!
