"Yeah I actually ended up making a mini out of the 1/2 inch stuff and it was kind of hard and rough feeling. I think I'll do what you did and make some kid hoops out of it. I went back and bought the 3/4 160 and it works much better. THanks for…"

"I wanted to make a set of smaller twins for poi hooping and thought the 1/2" 125 psi would work great for that. For me personally thou it is way to light. My boys are using it however and enjoying hooping, especially my 6yr old he spins two at…"

"1/2 in is good for off body and twin work. You can use it for core work too, but it'll be harder. I think people usually start with heavier bigger tubing to learn moves and then work their way down to the smaller stuff if they want to go…"

A little bit of flow =)

Posted on August 5, 2009 at 1:47pm 3 Comments

I've heard time and time again to pay attention to your arms when you hoop, and I thought I was.....but now that I really have started to pay attention it's opened me up to so much flow with my hoop. I finally feel like I'm actually DANCING in my hoop!!! My boyfriend was watching me and he said that it has added so much to my hooping. Now there is way more to focus on instead of just the makes any imperfection in tricks nearly unrecognizable. I took a video the other night but I want…

My interest in hoop dance started to fade off a little bit before this summer. I felt like I was at a plateau and it was extremely frustrating. Then...I went to All Good festival and I'm happy to say that my love for hooping has been renewed. I realized that only through practice would I ever get over my plateau and improve! By just letting my poor little hoop collect dust in the corner I was doing nothing!!! I've decided to pick up Poi as an alternate to hooping. I think that any kind of…

Hey hoopers! I'm having a little bit of a dilema. I use the studio at the YMCA to practice my hoop dance and the ladies there have taken a huge liking to it. (not suprisingly hehe) However, now they are asking me to do a hoop demo for their family night.

I love to share hooping with people and it sounds like a great idea but I'm sooo nervous about it. I haven't sat down with them yet to discuss the details of what they would want me to do....but I know some of you lovely ladies (and…

So I've had my LED hoop since Christmas but I've only gotten to use it a handful of times. The reason being that I only had a car charger. I read the instructions about charging it fully (for 10-12 hours) and then letting it fully lose charge before using it. Once I found that out I decided to not ruin it by only charging it for a little bit in my car. I just got my charger today and it's currently getting my lovely LED hoop ready to flow. =) I cannnn't waiiiiiit!

Happy Easter &…

So I'll start with the more positive things because, well, I like to stay positive. =) I just bought Safire's Budding hooper class and I can't wait to start working on everything. So much new information already and she hasn't even got close to everything up yet. I'm also about to start a beginner Yoga class in a few weeks and I can't wait. I really think Yoga will help me become more intune to myself and my soul. It might even help me with the stifled expression I've been feeling…

Hi Alli! My names Sophie! I am new to hooping but I see you are in Maryland! My boyfriend's family lives in Eldersburg which is close to you I believe. I am in the Towson area and just came on here to see if I could find any other hoopers around the area. I was wondering if you take classes or if you teach classes? I was thinking about taking SaFire's online courses but I also wanted to hoop with other people as well. I have a couple friends who do and I have gotten a lot of people to hoop too, its soo fun! I am really just beginning and only know a few basics but I am learning fast and I love it!

I can respect that! - are you ever in the Arlington area? Man, the DC/MD/VA group needs to get together! haha -

I live just north of Towson, in Cockeysville. Definitely no hoopers around here so instead, my (non-hooping) neighbors like to approach me while I'm playing out in the yard and I love to take the time to teach them! It's amazing that everyone who expresses interest is so convinced that they just cannot learn to hoop but end up walking away with a skill or two and sometimes even buying a hoop from me! =)

Hey you! You sent me a comment a long long time ago and I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. I just haven't been on this site since I signed up over the winter and I have no idea why... nevertheless, YAY for the Maryland hoopers =) There seems to be quite a shortage of us hoopers aside from a small group in the city and one out toward Ellicott City area so it's always nice to meet another one! :)
