I’ve been manipulating objects for 7 years and teaching for 3. It’s been one of the biggest passions of my life that continues to grow the more I practice. I love sharing what others have taught me, as well what I have discovered within the art myself. My main prop is poi but I practice other props as well. I’ve taught workshops of all sizes at the San Diego Circus Center and festivals such as Universal Flow Gathering, Mops Manipulation, Firedrums, Spin Summit, Kinetic Fire, SCJC, as well as, personal one on one lessons. I also had the pleasure of teaching 3 workshops at the 2015 PlayPoi Retreat in the leviathan studio.

 Austin “Mufasa” Lee, is flow and movement meditation artist and instructor from St. Louis, MO. He has been engulfed in the arts of movement the majority of his life. Specifically pertaining to prop manipulation, he’s experienced in the arts of poi, hoop dance, hoop tech, double staff, fans, and more recently ball & hoop juggling. His introduction to the arts was one of a rather misfortunate time in his life, but through the application of consistent practice and determination, this once seemingly childlike expression of movement became a source of meditation and release. Astounded by the level of appreciation and interest received by friends, family, and bystanders over the years, Mufasa began teaching his methods of movement meditation over 3 years ago. His workshops expand upon concepts and images that are readily identifiable to most, and are comprised of a series of simpler motions that when combined expose a greater idea to better ensure the learning process is free of stress and frustration. He’s a firm believer of having a visual understanding of patterns and movements before applying them physically.
