Description

The Vision:

June 13-20 and 20-27, 2020: Join Nick Woolsey and special guests on a beautiful off-grid island for one or two weeks of poi, flow arts, and adventure! Your experience will include:

  • Diving into advanced poi and flow arts, including dance, rhythm, performance choreography, and moves!
  • Endless time to practice and play on the sprung dance floor
  • Enjoying the BIG SAUNA
  • Being blown away by the beauty of Lasqueti Island
  • Feeling good by eating yummy organic food
  • Excursions around the island, with optional jumping into the ocean!

Why? To develop your flow skills, with some of the greatest people you will ever meet!

Where? Leviathan Studio on Lasqueti Island, BC, Canada! (some hours and ferry rides from Vancouver)

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

Lodging: Leviathan is RUSTIC. Most people will bring tents and sleeping bags. There are sole family sized tents to rent, plus a room above the sauna with a few mattresses. There are also a couple great spots for hammocks.

Food: Leviathan puts a lot of love into the food! Vegan and vegetarian dishes are served alongside organic meat (wild salmon, chicken raised on the property, and wild lamb or venison). All the food is cooked on a wood-stove. The kale is straight out of the garden :)

Please note the following:

  • The whole island is off-grid. Our electricity is from solar panels!
  • Most things are rustic. Imagine nice outhouses and a pond-shower)
  • Food is abundant, including snacks, coffee and teas, homemade chocolate and banana bread
  • 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 when you arrive)
  • There is a bar/restaurant with internet, a 20-minute walk away.
  • Yes, bring other toys! (fire-gear, hoops, levi-wands, juggling balls, slack-lines, etc.).
  • Bring swim suits, hiking boots, board games, and anything else that may help you enjoy time in a coastal rain-forest paradise. :)

Who is this for, and not for? This is for people who love camping and adventure, and who are excited by the idea of conditions flirting with primitive (but with lots of amazing food and a sprung dance floor)! If you need a plush bed and hot water on demand, consider Poi Camp at Wild Sun in Costa Rica. It's an equally awesome event and includes optional full-featured luxury rooms! :)

Start and End Times: First meal will be dinner on arrival day. We'll have an opening circle with introductions after dinner. Our first poi class will be the next morning after breakfast. The retreat will finish after breakfast on June 22/27.

Which Week to Attend? The first or both weeks is for anyone comfortable with the poi basics. Attending only the second week is available to those who have attended Playpoi retreats before, or to those who are otherwise sufficiently skilled with Playpoi curriculum (for instance, those who have finished the Beyond-the-Basics online course and have practiced the poi fu, rhythm exercises, and footwork).

Getting There: Lasqueti Island is 5-8 hours travel from Vancouver, including two beautiful ferry rides (cost is about $38CAD). Make sure to visit the HOW TO GET TO LEVIATHAN page!

Summary: It's not just flow training camp, it's an adventure of a lifetime!

COST (including food):
One week: 800CAD +tax (about 625USD)
Two weeks: 1300CAD +tax (about 1000USD)

**Balance can be paid starting 30 days before the event!
