First semester SL student Alexandra Pomeroy from Pennsylvania started the club.
“I was already going to do it by myself,” Pomeroy said. “Other people showed interest so I thought, why not start a club.”
At the first gathering on Jan. 27 eleven students showed up twirling poi, hula hooping and juggling.
Incoming student Shaina Smith was getting some instruction from Pomeroy on the hula hoop.
“It is my first time here,” Smith said. “I want to learn how to hula hoop that’s why I came.”
“It’s a very creative thing, it definitely makes the brain work differently,” she added. “I’m no professional or anything but my brain; I feel it working so differently when I’m practicing and learning something that’s very movement associated and I like that.”
Flow Arts is open to anyone who is interested. You can expect to convene with good people and try something new.
Enter another first semester student Bruce Nevarez was in the flow doing some poi.
“This is my first time doing any sort of Flow Art but so far I can tell that I’m really going to get into it,” Nevarez said.
“It’s just to have fun,” he continued. “To be in the flow, and in the moment doing something that looks really cool.”
Pomeroy is working on creating a sustainable bamboo hula hoop because they’re normally made from PVC.
Through lots of practice and youtube videos she has honed her talents in the Flow Arts.
Flow Arts club provides students an opportunity to, as Maharishi says, live 200 percent fullness of life.
“(Flow Art) helps one experience the blissful awareness that comes with activity when you experience flow,”Pomeroy said. “So through T.M. we learn how to explore blissful awareness with rest and now we can also do that with activity.”
