Beach Fossils : Lazy Day

It might be 19 degrees outside but in my head it's summer :) I felt the grass on my chest in the open field. And I knew there was nothing left for me to feel...

To be the best mom I can be to my little baby boy! To continue on my amazing hoop journey. The hoop has brought such goodness into my life.

Hey Shelly. I'm interested in the hoopnotica teacher training you mentioned. Do you know how to get info about the scholarships? I live in Austin and am looking to get something started in my area. Thanks!

Thanks, I've already contacted one but their studio is kinda small. They're a zumba studio. How many hoopers do you usually have in your class so I can eyeball if a studio would be big enough once the class picks up

Would it be possible to talk to you about helping me find somewhere to teach hoop classes? Not sure where to start looking. I just started working on my certification so I have a little bit of time before I feel as though I could teach well enough. If synergy would like to have multiple hoop classes that would be awesome, if not then maybe you know somewhere else that would be able to have classes. Thanks!!
