Hey there folks!

We are back again with another Tutsday, brought to you by the Flow Arts Institute.

This week we have the incredible Lux Luminous.  Lux is a veritable pioneer in the leviwand world. Aside from being an amazing performer and innovator, she is also a skilled instructor.  She teaches at events like FLAME, Kinetic, Fahrenheit, Pacific Fire Gathering, and is even a lead organizer at New England Flow Festival.  In her off time, Lux spends some of her time moderating both of the Leviwand groups on Facebook and helping out with Leviwand.com.

This time around, Lux shows us a cool Leviwand technique she figured out at Kinetic Fire 2015.   

1. It all begins with an upward stall.  Those of you who are poi spinners should find this familiar.
2. Let the wand fall straight down to a stop.   The wand should be straight up and down.
3. Hook your dominant leg around and pinch the wand between your calf and thigh muscles.
4. Spin on your opposite foot in the direction of your raised leg.
5.  When you make it all the way around, lower your raised leg and release the wand.  
6. This position allows you to transition into other techniques like the Teeter Totter or Antispins, but as Lux mentions, there are many different ways to get out of this technique.

Do some exploration with this idea on your own. If you are feeling up to it, please share your ideas with us in the comments!

You can see more of Lux in the wand forums on Facebook and Leviwand.com, as well as the recently released Momentum DVD, now available here

Thank you for checking out this week’s Tutsday!  We hope that this idea helps further your flow!

Til next time.
