"Guilty! I noticed myself doing this while making breakfast the other week. I had Pandora on listening to a Jason Mraz station. I just started air hooping to a song that I really liked. Oddly enough, I felt more "in flow" without the hoop…"

"Maybe this will help :) http://youtu.be/nmEwVC9x-h4 I watch this video whenever I feel down about hooping, or just life in general. You learn to love the process because that is what has made people great. We all have had to start somewhere and…"

"I hoop a lot to blues music, since I dance to blues, anyway! I feel really in touch with the musicality of those pieces, so it's easier for me to concentrate on hooping and go with the flow. Some of my favorites are Nina Simone, Etta James, and…"

Profile Information

Do you teach hoop classes? *Please only answer 'yes' if you teach classes on a regular basis.
What year did you start hooping? (e.g. 2003)
Who is your hoop mamma or papa? (The person who introduced you to hooping)
Who's hoop style do you love? i.e. Who inspires you?
Safire, Baxter, GroovinMegzz
What is your goal for 2014 and why is it important? (Doesn't have to be hoop related.)
My goal is to be in better shape and try to eat healthier (as I eat cookie dough out of the tub while typing this). Although I am still young, I know that watching my health now will pay off when I am older. My advantage is having my hoop next to me while accomplishing all this, making sure I am playing a game instead of working out.
