We! Are! Thrillllled about this week’s presenter!
Dr. Kate Riegle van West is a scientist, artist, and entrepreneur with a passion for play and wellbeing. Kate completed her PhD in the *health benefits of poi* at the University of Auckland, where she conducted the first study to scientifically investigate the effects of poi on physical and cognitive function.
This week, Kate will be sharing some of what she’s learned through her research and experience teaching older adults poi. While her research and work focuses on poi specifically, this presentation is guaranteed to be interesting to any flow artist who is passionate about the physical, mental and emotional benefits of flow arts.
