(I think I got the name right - the move I'm thinking of is this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmeZYGc3N4M but with one hand).

Does anybody know of any good tutorials/have any tips for doing this? I can do it easily with two hands but want to learn to do it with one.. I tired the other day but just ended up throwing my hoop everywhere:P

I haven't come across any tutorials for it, but beth lavinder breaks it down beautifully in words in her journal entry here:


I'm still working on the sustained version myself.  For the one-time-around type, I've found that catching with the palm facing down is one of the most important things to note from her description.  It makes all the difference.  And a light hoop is also helpful - I recommend 1/2" 125 psi or poly pro.  Good luck!

definitly a lighter is a definte must, i found that spining a little faster when you come to bring the hoop up also helps. Basicly start like you would the 2 handed vortex, then spin and pull back up.


Where can I access my classes?

Unfortunately, I am going to have to MANUALLY transfer over 1700 students to the new site. When it is ready I'll be posting EVERYWHERE with instructions on how to log into your account. I'll do whatever it takes to make this work so you don't lose your access.

Predicted launch date: January 23rd, 2016

Thank you for your patience and support!

Much love,
