Aspiring Hooper

Hello everyone! I'm Bekah Hope. I am 25 years old and 5'2".

I decided to take up hooping this summer after I attended Wakarusa in AR, for the first time. I am amazed by how graceful hooping can be, as well as how fun it is! I love fitness activities and hooping is my new fitness (as well as artistic) passion. I have a homemade 100 PSI 38" HDPE Practice hoop. I also just made a 100 PSI 34" hoop that breaks into 8, 13" pieces and packs easily into a backpack.

So far, I…

Day 6 - 100 Day Hooping Challenge

I've been pretty inactive with hooping lately (try the past year or so), and I'd failed at maintaining any other form of regular exercise. Nothing is as fun as hooping and the poi I've been slowly learning! 

So this is yet another attempt to get "back into the swing of things". Over the past week I've worked on my 3 beat weave and sticking my hands in, instead of carrying on the thumb. What a difference! Not only is it more difficult, but it feels completely different from what I was…

Poly-pro hoops are AMAZING!

Since I started dancing with a poly-pro hoop I have felt so much more confident with my hooping. The poly-pro has enhanced my skills and made it easier to hoop. I've learned so many moves recently. Behind the back elbow pass, behind the back pass, chest hooping, my issolations have been better. All in all I freaking love my new hoop. :)



Live, Loove, HOOP

Love Hoop Heal: A Global Healing Initiative

Hello Hoopers,

My name is Amanda Emsland and I have been on a personal healing journey for over 4 years which helped me create a philosophy for life and business/non-profit called I Am Love In Action, Healing Ourselves Heals The World!

Recently this philosophy lead me to Rwanda where I hosted a number of projects, one of which was called Love Hoop Rwanda. This is a call to Hoopers around the world to take your skills to the streets, the mountains, the places others are afraid…

Hoop Dream is Too Real

I've unlocked secret hidden powers with hula hooping. Queens of the Stone Age is such a real possibility for me to dance to live on stage, but I don't want to dance for them anymore.     

I've finally got why I was so angry with the online hoop community. I didn't understand why most couldn't feel the music or dance more than they discuss dancing. We as a community live in disharmony. Spending more time indoors than outdoors effects the soul. Spending more…

Hoop therapy


It is amazing to me that I have been hooping for nearly two years. I often remember how I struggled with basic waist hooping in the beginning. I would watch hooping tutorials on YouTube and be absolutely amazed at what some people can do with a hoop. It’s almost magical. The simple beauty that one person and one hoop can make astounds me, still.

I have come a long way down my personal hoop path since the day I bought my first hoop from Wal-Mart in the children's toy section.…

One Month Hooping

Here's my 1 Month Hooping video.

Note: I'm doing these videos for the sole purpose of recording my progress. I don't have a mirror to practice in front of, so I just record myself and watch the video afterwards. It's very helpful because I can watch it whenever I want and every time I watch, I find new things to work on. I'm not…

Daydreaming about circles

It is safe to say that I am madly in love with hooping.  I love the lightness my spirit feels after a good hoop session.  As each day passes I can feel my muscles aching with growth and it is so uplifting!  I feel as if other things in my life are aligning themselves because I have let go of so much stress through my practice that everything just seems easier than before.  It is amazing that something as small as a hoop can facilitate this kind of change in my life.  I am only on day 5 and I…

Hoop Journey

I've been hooping for about 8 months off and on now and I still feel like a beginner. There is so much I still want to be able to achieve as far as flow, creativity, and dance goes.

Watching all the amazing hoopers out there that flow and move with grace, are able to dance with their hoop like it's a partner,…

Evolution of flow; taking on the 100-day Hoop Challenge

Hello Beautiful Hoopers!! This is my first entry and I am so excited to be a part of such a vibrant online community.  A little about myself, I am 25 years old and live in Oregon.  I work as a Nanny and I have a deep passion for Early Childhood Education.  I love to experience new things either in my own backyard or, when I am lucky enough, a new and exciting place aboard.  I like to dabble in learning other languages; French, Spanish, Thai, and of course 'dirty' words in all the languages…

Achievement unlocked: One year hooping complete!

Hey all! Wow--I have really been neglecting my poor little hooping blog, haven't I? The past few months have been all work (schoolwork and job applications, unfortunately) and less play, so I haven't had a lot of time to make a really detailed post. (Come to think of it, I have a final project due on Friday, so I should probably be working on that now... Buuut, this is way more fun. :) )

So, as the title suggests, I've finally hit my one-year hooping mark! YAYYY!!! :D :D :D…

How to Start a Local Hoop Jam

How to Start a Local Hoop Jam


Back in 2010, when I first started hooping, I struggled to find other hoopers in my area (especially since I live in a smaller, rural town).  Since I didn’t really know anyone who already hooped, I decided to get people into hooping!  Since 2010, I’ve aided in fostering a local hoop community in my area.  It all began by starting up a local hoop jam.


So, what is a “hoop jam”?

A hoop jam serves as an…
