Event Details

Join Nick Woolsey and special guests on a beautiful rainforest island for ten days of poi, flow arts, and adventures! (First confirmed special guest is Karina Strong from Vesta Fire, and Kipper Christopher Martin! :) 

Your awesome experience will include: 

  • Diving into advanced poi and flow arts, including dance, rhythm, choreography, and lots of moves!
  • Enjoying the BIG SAUNA and pond
  • Being blown away by the beauty of Lasqueti Island
  • Feeling good and healthy by eating yummy organic food
  • Optional climbing of mountains and spinning fire on top of them
  • Co-produced talent show!

Why? To have the time of your life, developing your skills with something you love, with some of the greatest people you will ever meet! 

Where? At possibly the most beautiful dance studio ever: Leviathan Studios on Lasqueti Island! 

Prerequisites: For this retreat you need to be comfortable with all the poi basics

Lodging: Leviathan is RUSTIC. There are no private rooms for accommodation. Most people will bring tents and sleeping bags. There is a room above the sauna, and floor space in the studio for those who cannot bring tents. There are also a couple great spots for hammocks.   

Please note the following:

  • There are no flush-toilets, just nice outhouses.
  • There is a rustic, outdoor shower.
  • The ferry to Lasqueti is for foot-passengers only. If you drive, you will have to leave your car at the French Creek parking lot.
  • We will pick you up at the ferry terminal on Lasqueti Island. 
  • All the electricity is from solar panels. So charging phones is ok, but no hair-dryers etc.
  • There is a bar/restaurant with internet in the evenings, a 20-minute walk away. 
  • Lasqueti is remote, off-grid, and a long way to the hospital
  • Leviathan Studio requires that you sign a disclaimer form and present photo-ID upon arrival. 
  • Leviathan Studio puts a lot of love into the food. Organic meat is served at most meals (fish, chicken, and lamb). Vegan is an option. 
  • Yes, bring other toys! (fire-gear, hoops, levi-wands, juggling balls, slack-lines, etc.).
  • Bring rain gear in case we get rain, swim suits, hiking boots, bug spray, and anything else that may help you enjoy ten days in a temperate coastal rain-forest paradise. :) 

Getting There: Lasqueti Island is 5-8 hours travel from Vancouver, including two ferry rides (cost is about $38CAD). There is usually some car-pooling, but don't worry, it's easy by public transit.  Make sure to visit their HOW TO GET TO LEVIATHAN page!


The Early-Bird price is 990CAD + 5% tax (about 800USD total, including tax). After March 30th the price will be $1100CAD +5%GST

$400CAD deposit via Eventbrite, and the balance due by the first day of the event)
