Haven't been on here in quite awhile

but could use some help. I am teaching at a wonderful new place, but it is NEW, so that makes it really difficult. I am trying to get some of my old students from the adult ed to join me in the new studio, and my FB friends and acquaintances to come out and I am having a really hard time for the first time getting students. I work full time so don't have lots of free time to 'market" my classes. I am beginning to wonder if it's just me and feeling really kinda bad about it, even though I have…See More

"I've seen people playing hand games for fun at jams. You might try to do something like that or passing an object while hooping. Also you can have them all hold hands and pass the hoop around the circle without breaking the chain."

Always more to learn

Posted on February 21, 2010 at 1:54am 0 Comments

I went to the gym today to practice, and things went pretty well as far as learning a new move. Still struggling with the one leg hooping and the pizza toss. But I think I may have learned something more important. I hope I can continue to use this. I found that up to now I have been manipulating the hoop to do tricks with it. That is good but it can only get you to a certain place. I think I will learn more if I let the hoop manipulate me! I was practicing what hoopgirl calls the "reverse…

I must say I have been a little disappointed lately. I recently asked a couple of my previous students that have done very well if they would like to perform with me at a local festival. With the reaction I got you would think I asked them to strip or something. Well actually they said "we're just not up to that" and nothing I could say would convince them otherwise.

Those of you who are teachers, do you also have a hard time getting your students comfortable hooping in front of other…  

So much to little time

It seems that with a full time job, teaching hooping classes, getting my son to band and his job, practicing hooping, promoting my classes, cooking, cleaning the house (notice that came last ;), there is no time left. Thankfully when I am in the hoop, everything stands still for just a little while. Time doesn't seem to exist, just me the hoop and whatever music is on. How blessed we are that we have something that not only gives us exercise, but a euphoric sense of peace as we perform that…  

Today is my first day on Hoop City!

Here is what I accomplished today as far as hooping. I played for 10 minutes learning the "reverse warrior" . I want to learn to go from that to a reverse jump through but just kind of walked through that part for now. No big deal, didn't do much directly related to hooping today. But what I did do is receive my yoga/bellydance dvd which I think will really help my hooping. I am hoping and believing they will work together to bring me more smooth hooping and body movements.

It is beautiful…

LOL! Thank you, I am healing..but I now know that knees do not slide across patio concrete very well! It's a good thing I work at a vet clinic, I think if I had another job people would be looking at my hand and arm wondering what the hell I've been doing! Can't wait to see the pics and vid!

Hi Paula!

I JUST saw your message that you left back in August! (with so many social media sites, I seem to miss messages here and there). I look forward to hooping with you at some point this year. Hope you're well!
