I am rewatching all of my hoopvids .. I started hooping in april 2010, and then kind of stopped.. well ok I picked up my hoop every now and then, but never really pushed myself to go that extra bit. Maybe due to the fact that I had and was going through some heavy stuff..
Then in november 2010 I got word Bax&Breck were coming to give an workshop, and I was like UHOH!
What if I cant keep up or am 'not good enough' , so i stepped up big time!

I just wanted to take a few moments to say that I really enjoy the camaraderie here! It is fascinating to watch & hear the unfoldment of each person's journey, trials & victories! It is truly inspiring & heartfelt, as well as, wonderful knowing that no matter what challenge we are enduring at the time there's always someone else who's also having or have had that same challenge before truly validating knowing we are never alone in our journey for all of us are also experiencing…

I had taken a break from hooping (well not so much hooping) and this site. I would rarely pick up my toys, I really don't know what switched my mood off, but after a few weeks of keeping to myself and figuring things out I am back in the circle and this wonderful site. My journey is continuing and growing more each day. I hope everyone had a wonderful easter and spring break (if you had one).
Peace,Love & lights lovely.
Lately, I have been feeling rather inadequate in my hula hooping. I feel as if I am making no progress and have ran into a roadblock of inspiration. This roadblock as been going on for a few months, and I am honestly a little discouraged. My tricks, dance and flow are no where near where I want it to be. I do not feel as happy as I used to when I hoop and I starve for that euphoric state I used to feel when I first started to hula hoop when I nailed a trick or did…
its been 22 days since i got my first hoop.
the first 3 days were a nightmare of even trying to keep the stupid thing on my waist. (they sent me a 44 inch btw, its been... interesting lol)
then everything magically began to click.
i just did my first one shoulder head duck out. i've been doing it with my arm through the hoop so it won't fly off and kill anyone, but i finally did it without the training wheels.
i can chest hoop with surprising ease. i…

Last Saturday, only two people attended our hoop jam. Halimeda Hoops and I talked as we spun about how we'd like to generate more interest in our playdates, so HH, her hubby and I met up this afternoon for a little hoopdancing at the University of Southern Mississippi's Jazz & Blues Festival and Arts Show on the USM Gulf Coast campus. We got there around 1 p.m. and staked our claim to a clear, flat patch of ground. We laid out the extra hoops we both brought, and started rocking it…

On April 16, 2011 I decided to buy a hoop online. I had read that Beyonce used weighted hoops to keep a small waist. My waist is anything but small. I have been into athletics my whole life, but at 32 years old, I had my second knee surgery. I had a torn ACL and meniscal tears. I am a non-traditional student, so I'm trying to get out of college this time as quickly as I can. Since I discovered during fall semester that I had to have surgery, I postponed it until Christmas Break. Being in a…

Hey everyone, if it's being read xD
I'm new to this site, and I think it's amazing! I'm not new to hooping though, I've been doing it for years (with a lil gap in the middle) I posted some videos and pics to try and get started. And I'm hoping to post a lot more in the future.
Hope to learn a lot from you guys!
I titled this journal entry "Releasing Fear, Letting Go & Trusting in the Flow" because that seems to really be the lesson the Universe is sending my way over the past few months with all of the changes that have been taking place; a whole new perspective & endeavor has surfaced providing a totally unlooked for advantage & blessing in disguise offering unlimited potential & opportunities.
I find that equally within the hoop in order to truly flow balanced…
