Hi all, I'm attending NIU in DeKalb (moving to campus in 2 weeks) and I'm wondering if there are any Huskie hoopers. It would be awesome to hang out with some fellow hoopers on campus!Thanks,Betsy.See More
"I was going to say you should rotate your body in the direction of the hoop. But it loks like you figured that out! If you don't want to rotate, keep your legs shoulder length apart or farther. A wider stance allows for more mobility in your…"
"hey, I so feel you on the waist hooping, Im plus size myself, also somewhat of an apple shape, and with not that much junk in the trunk either lol I have trouble waist hoop but i find myself getting better, if I stand still I cant keep it up long,…"
"I am awful in my opposite current. Well actually, I find I can do a lot of off body stuff in reverse pretty easily, but even hooping on my waist in reverse still feels horrible and awkward to me. I've had 4 years inside the hoop and I…"
"It's easier for me to hoop in my second current (for me, it's to the left) with my heavier hoops; just like when I'm learning new moves, it's less work to keep the larger, heavier hoop going than the polypros I've been…"
"When I am hooping in my reverse current I feel like a kid that has to stop playing and come inside to get ready for bed! I have so much more fun in my natural current, but I think it's only because it is so much more comfortable....Does…"
"I sort of love my reverse current. I anticipated problems with it when I started waist hooping, and I could see my potential future being very uncomfortable hooping to the right. One of the things that inspired me to start hoopdancing…"
"Rumi, the mystic poet who spun around a pole, walking/dancing in meditation rather than sitting still so he could align himself better with the universe wrote that spinning to the left was balancing and spinning to the right is healing....
"Currents are an interesting business... I hoop left, I'm a disaster when I try and spin right. I wonder if its something more inherent, or if its something we learn? When I first started no one was teaching me, I learned…"
"I love reading this--yes! I am so grateful to have begun my hoopship with Baxter, who taught me to send the hoop in the opposite current after every drop. Six years later, I can't believe how important this simple directive…"
"I feel your pain. I am humbled by my hoop every time I try my reverse current (left). I can only waist hoop to the left for about 2-3 minutes right now before it falls. Persistence! We'll get there :)"
"So, I know it's been some time since I started this thread, and tonight I decided to take a quick video to show that I actually have made some progress. It's sloppy and rough, but not only am I officially a waist hooper, I've also…"
Hi! How are you? How's your hooping journey going? I'm know I'm so late but, Happy late Thanksgiving. I had an awesome Thanksgiving. I did finally cut my polypro down about 2inches I figured I'd cut it down as I feel the need. Well, hope to hear from you soon. HHJ
