Whether it be by randomly picking up a hoop, or having it introduced by a friend, how did you get into hooping? For me, it was all by chance. A group of friends and I met up one night, just to hang…

Hi, I'm new to hooping. I have a larger hoop, reaching up to my ribcage. In what ways should I ready myself for a smaller hoop? Any pointers or tips? Any help is appreciated.

"Lighter hoops don't feel the same, but thats what makes them great for moving them quickly around and off the body. You have to move more quickly to keep lighter hoops up, which make them a different kind of work out. 36 inch 3/4 OD hoops are a…"

"I have to add that I just made a 36 inch hoop from 160 psi tubing and I love it. It's so much fun to play with, and since it's smaller diameter I can do off-body stuff and the weight is getting my arms ripped. On-body hooping goes faster,…"

If I got a smaller hoop, but, have it weighted, do you think it'll have that same "heavy feeling" a larger one has?See More

"I did not even realize that such a thing like hooping existed until I went to Shambhala. I was so inspired by all the hoop goddesses there I had to look up how it was done when I got home. Youtube videos have been such a big inspiration too."
