Benefits of Flow

Many people get into flow arts because it’s heaps of fun, and because spinning fire is one of the coolest things they’ve seen and they have to try it for themselves. Often, people don't realise that flow arts is something that can positively impact their lives in a multitude of ways.

New Year, New Skills

One of the things I love most about flow arts is that the skills we learn and develop when spinning translate into other areas of our lives. It takes patience and persistence to learn a new technique/move/trick – it’s not common practice to continue swinging something around after you’ve hit yourself in the face with it over, and over, and over again. But if you want to learn that thing, you need to persevere through the bashing and be patient with the knowledge that (as Mainland so eloquently said) good things take time.

This is true for other areas of our lives too. It takes patience to maintain healthy relationships (among other things). It takes persistence to finally nab your dream job. It takes focus and determination to finish that project you’ve been working on. All skills that can be honed through flow arts.
