Hi, Catherine! I'm glad you commented. I haven't been on in a while (two years, apparently), and I haven't been in the hoop regularly. When I do get my spin on, though, I always find the moves come easily. Yay, muscle memory! ;) I'm glad you're finding it easier to learn things and dance with the hoop.

I'm going to start working on a hoopdance number for my church's Christmas program (the pastor kind of volunteered me to do it), so I may be posting something soon. I bought a red shirt and leggings for the outfit today; just need a skirt to complete the outfit. I'll probably use the black one that I wore with my steampunk Halloween outfit.

Two plus years in and I'm still going strong. I haven't seen much activity here recently but I'm still going to post. I've gotten over my control issues regarding my hoops and speaking of hoops I now have 6. I've broken one twice but it's still usable. I've hit an area in my hooping where some things are becoming easier to learn and I'm learning to dance more with the hoop, allowing it to guide me but the most important thing that I've learned is that the more time I spend in a hoop, the more I realize that age is nothing but a number and at 44, I've learned to use my body in ways that would make my younger self, envious. Happy hooping ladies.

Haven't been hooping much lately - too much stuff, not enough day.  I need to get back to it - pants are getting tight and my moods are swinging.  The NP at the clinic this morning brought up the other D word - depression - and I didn't like the thought of popping any more pills in addition to the meds I already take for diabetes and other health issues.  Hooping - exercise of any sort, really - is a proven anti-depressant, so I need to start making time for some physically active fun again.

Hi Traci,  

Thanks again!  Love LED but it's so cold outside its tough to use, darn it.  Every time it warms up at all I dash outside.  I'm working on starting a class and am looking around for a space to use.  I've been working on breaks and reversals and am having a good time.  What are you working on?

Comment by Traci "CircularPraise" Bonney on December 3, 2013 at 5:49pm

Been quiet around here last few weeks.  Shannon, how's the LED working out for you?  Everyone else, how are things going?

Comment by Shannon on November 3, 2013 at 5:11pm

Darn.  Tried again.  There yet?

Comment by Traci "CircularPraise" Bonney on November 3, 2013 at 4:30pm

Shannon, the message hasn't come through yet.

Comment by Shannon on November 3, 2013 at 3:13pm

anyone out there have some great new moves? tricks?  working on something fun?  it's getting cold and I'm moving into garage hooping... looking for inspiration :)   

Comment by Shannon on November 3, 2013 at 3:11pm

Hey Traci, sent you address in message.  did you get it?

Thanks and more thanks :)   also message me and let me know how to send money to you. 

Comment by Traci "CircularPraise" Bonney on November 1, 2013 at 6:20pm

I did, but haven't found the right size box yet.  I meant to message you earlier in the week, but it's been a bit crazy around here.  I'm hoping to find a suitable box tomorrow. Fingers crossed... :)


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,
