Learning & Growing

Been taking hoop classes and have learned so much! I think the turning point for me was a really cool festival called PlayThink!Movement festival which was a 3 day camping experience in the forest of Berea, KY where a really down to earth group of people gathered to cultivate a creative healthy community and share a natural playful spirit through a variety of flow arts: http://www.playthinkmove.com/  There was object manipulation, yoga, martial arts,…See More

Brand new to hooping. For years I have been in awe of hoopers.  Every music festival I would sit on the grass and watch the beautiful expression of hooping and long to be able to do it myself.I have decided it is time to stop watching and wishing to be a part of this community and just get up and join it! I need help though... hopefully I will be able to learn a lot from you veterans out there!  See More

This is so sick! I want to be able to hoop like this. I just video taped myself hooping for the first time and it was super embarrassing. Maybe I'll post it one day to compare where I started and how I progress. Not quite ready yet tho... Until then I am just going to post videos of hoopers that inspire me!
