I've been watching the snow in my backyard, try to pretend to melt. I look at it everyday hoping, "maybe in a week I can hoop in the sun?" Well, my backyard is still mounded with snow, but I realized not EVERYWHERE is. there is bare grass to be found all over the city, sopping wet, but void of snow. So today I packed my hoop and some beats and went across the street to the park in my community. It was only 7 degrees C so I wasn't sure if I would be warm enough. After peeling off layer after…

I almost didn't take this video. . .I was packing up after being at the river for a few hours ready to leave and decided to throw on a random song I have never heard before and take a video really quick. I'm kind of embarrassed that my hoop kinked and I didn't notice it .___.

“I can’t figure out, how to figure out what a dream is, or could be.”
These were the words that echoed in the atmosphere as each step, traced by the zodiac, rooted itself towards the tree. Following the fence-lined road behind me was the liar, the dancer, the frustrated, and the hunter of dreams. Their Shamanic energy whirled around me like soft, mad children. There was no getting rid of them, no getting rid of what I am.
“It’s a journey, it’s the process. All will happen as it…

"Something new everyday" that's my goal, and it seems to be working. Since attending Edmonton's Hoop Path this past February, I just couldn't wait for summer any longer and vowed to find an indoor hoop space. (I hadn't picked up my hoop since October) At the very sad end of a fantastic Hoop Path, I was just beginning to experiment with angles and I had still not mastered the art of chest hooping. Now after nearly a month of dedicated practice (an hour everyday I don't work, and usually every…

After almost a year and a half of hooping, I finally decided to try out twins. I'm using two cheap kids hoops from the local home store. I may have to go back and find another pair, as these ones aren't balanced. One is slightly thicker and heavier than the other. I may be able to tape them differently to make them weigh the same, though.
I also recently started spinning poi. I've only managed to get a few moves down so far, but the forward two and three beat weaves and windmill…

Today I made my first hoop video after just over 2 and a half months of hooping I feel it's time to start my visual progress this way I can see and whoever else cares to see can also watch me grow into my hoop, and balance out my poi :)

I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for four years now and it started out amazingly and i felt so blessed but as time crept by we slowly started to loose each other and would hide behind the truth just doing and not living. I was in such emotional agaony I tried so hard to fix what could not be helped i was scared and frighten of being alone until I had an epiphany today while hooping! It told me to just let go and the rest will fallow that i cannot depict and control my path…

Ok...so, I think it'd be awesome to get an LED hoop. I've borrowed a friends once and I really enjoyed using it. They're fun and look super bad ass. Plus, I can hoop in the dark and not be self-conscious. When I get better at hooping I think it'd be an excellent investment. But I'm a beginner...more or less...is that a reason not to put aside 40 dollars a paycheck for one?
Because that's what it was. There was a thunderstorm two nights ago and as the sun was going down I got to go out and hoop under it. :) One word. Awesome. I have to do that again sometime. We didn't get any rain, but there was a lot of lightning and just watching the clouds build overhead until I could see the stars was amazing. I should have been a storm chaser.
Some of my favorite storm photos:…
