i am so excited to be a part of this hooping community. Ever since i saw hoop dancers ive fallen in love with it. I just bought my first hoop at my local music festival for 15 dollars and it is absolutely perfect! Ive only been hooping for 4 days now and already see how magical it is, being one with the hoop, the hoop becomes a part of you. I only know a few tricks but i already tend to lose myself in it, spinning and twirling out of control haha :) If any of you beautiful experienced…

Well, the last try at posting something in video form didn't work, but maybe I'll figure it out today! The other day I had a hooping experience that I can't stop giggling over. I was hooping to Smooth Criminal (covered by Alien Ant Farm) when my 12 yr old son decided to come out and give me something to giggle about. Nothing like a spontaneous Michael Jackson dance move to send me into ripples of laughter. Good stuff. Here's a one minute clip with me doing some hooping, working on…
I should have made five journal entries by now!
1. My friend let me borrow his webcam for a couple hours so I could get some footage of my first LED! I have pretty much given up on the video aspect of hooping because it stresses me out so much. I like seeing what my hooping looks like from different angles but other than that I prefer mirrors…

I was going to hoop tonight, but my husband fell asleep in the middle of the living room floor.... and it's been cold and rainy all day. Glad I got some good hooping in this morning, but I was all ready to go tonight as well. Guess I'll follow suit, call it an early night, and if I'm lucky wake up before my daughter does and hoop in the a.m. (or wait for her nap hahaha)
Excited for this years hot ass Wakarusa! I'm going to do my best to play and flow as much as possible.oh yeah and let go

Learning so much from SaFire and the other women in our class of 7 at the cozy Flowjo in Carrboro. Our first day was 4 hours and I could feel the tension and inhibitions melting as we worked together and became comfortable with ourselves in this new class setting.
I have definitely stayed in the student mind.
"Teaching is as much about Flow as hooping is."
Co-experience not competition
us, we, co-workers, colleagues

i love hooping in public because its such a social thing to do. im really discouraged when i look at youtube videos of other people because i feel like i should be further along. i want to meet more hoopers. i want to work more on vertical hooping and isolations.

Today I have been wondering why the hoop is so powerful?
Why does it make people feel so good?
What it actually is that makes the hoop so powerful transformation tool?
Is it the balancing and activating of the chakras?
Is it the round shape that speaks to our soul about wholeness and infinite connection?
I'm just so fascinated by these thoughts <3
Do you have any thoughts on this?
Please help me get selected for the Electric Forest Hoop Troupe by "Liking" this video on YOUTUBE... I would love the opportunity to enhance the shared experience at Electric Forest with HOOPDANCE :-D

This week(/year) I have been overwhelmed. With sadness and grief and guilt for loved ones who have left this world. With gratitude and love for the hoop and all of the beautiful hoopers and people that have been showing me so much support and kind words. With stress and worry because of my current financial and living situation. All of these factors have been driving me to hoop for hours and hours a day, like the first few months when I had first fallen in…

I've never been good at waiting. I've never been known for being patient. This is doubly true when I'm excited to get started on a project. I don't think my impatience has ever been more apparent than when I'm waiting on items to arrive in the mail. However, I think this is the least patient I have EVER been about the mail! I'm getting even more antsy because I'm pretty sure that all of my hoop related things aren't going to arrive until next week, and I work way too much next week to get…

I keep trying to start a journal entry instead of just lurking, I think it's just a bit of social anxiety... still pretty new here and I really love this site! I have been hooping less than a year now and I am hooked. Recently got a 36in cosmic hoop and it is indeed blissful and so much lighter than my homemade psi ones... looking forward to using it at a hoop jam next week with a new friend, love that I can connect to others through hooping. Really excited about hooping with other…
I'm on my way to Hoop Convergence! I'm super excited, as always. This will be my fourth year there and my third time teaching.
I can't believe how much has happened in 4 years! I was so nervous going to Hoop Con the first time and now it feels like I'm going back to see my family.
Here's a video from 2009, the night before my first Hoop Con... I can never sleep before a Hoop Festival. ;…

I've been light on hoop practice the past week, for various reasons, but tonight I buckled down and... MADE HOOPS! I'm using 100psi, 3/4" polyethylene. I made one megahoop by measuring to just below my breasts and cutting the tubing there, and one 42"er that's got two joins and hopefully will allow me to twist and fold it down for transport. 42" (1" diameter) is what I've been working with, though my first hoop is heavier.
I tried the mega-hoop (It's about 47") and it was so nice,…
