Hey all! So I have been hooping for almost 2 years now, and just decided to make some twins and have no idea where to begin. If nayone has any advice about starting to spin hoop poi, let me know. I have searched for tutorials online with not much luck. I found one great video about the 3 beat weave, and I'm working on it!
So far I love it and my ARMS HURT. !
You might want to join BEFORE you make the hoops since Safire gives a lot of tips on sizes. I made two sets of minis while I waited to join (she was at Burning Man so I got impatient) & now I'd really like to make 2 more sets! I just ordered more tape... keep thinking, "Okay, that's enough hoops!" ...& then...
One more vote for Safire's mini class! Tons of info & ideas there, & not just for the tiny hoops. I've been hooping for about 9 1/2 months now & I find poi style far more challenging than body hooping. Whether it's my wimpy arms or lack of coordination, or probably both, I need all the help I can get! Safire breaks everything down so meticulously, little by little I feel less klutzy (& my arms less sore too!) You're right that there are not many tutorials on youtube for twins... all the more reason to sign up for the class.
