"I know how frustrating that can be. I hope it's diagnosed and you heal swiftly! I am a hoop dance instructor, a Pilates teacher and Thai Massage practitioner, so much of my work is in Joyful, therapeutic wellness through movement. "

Let me see if I can hook you up with a friend who has the Pilates franchise at The Printing House. That's much closer than coming all the way to Jersey. I'll get back to you. She did mention an interest in learning hoop dance the last time I saw her.
I'm IMX certified in reformer and mat class and Stott certified in reformer. Been teaching for about 8 years. We work with the basic reformer, spring boards on the wall, the Edge and the Chair.

Would love to work something out with you.
Hey Bex! sooo... my boyfriend saw this dance place that advertised hooping and he knows i love hooping, so he went in and picked up a card and gave it to me... i was super syked ...it wound up being you! Hopefully i can take one of your classes one day, but it's been hard finding the time to travel into the city for just one class. one day... one day :)
hey there bex! im responding to your thread in the fire hooping section in here, because i think it's not good message board ettiquette to respond with links to a *different* message board....
