There are two angles provide below so you can get a better idea of how this move is performed. Begin with a forward alternate timing spin at your sides. As the poi in your right hand comes forward across your shoulder bring your arm towards the center of your boday to allow the poi to fall between your legs. Immediately after the poi pass past your legs (when entering through) begin to turn your body to the left, starting first with your sholders and then your right leg. This action is actualy just a pivot on your left leg. Right before your right leg reaches fully around and is placed on the ground your right poi should be making it's way back out from between your legs. At this same point begin to bring your left poi to behind your back preparing to enter between your legs. The left poi should come out infront of the body at the same point that your right foot touches the ground. Once again perform the pivot action as done before, pivoting on your right leg this time, and still turning to your left. Right before your left foot returns to the ground your left poi should be exiting from between your legs behind you. As you place your foot down the poi should return to your side to return to a forward alternate timing spin by your side.
