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…

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,…
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…
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…

What Does Hooping Mean to You: Types of Hula Hooping
“So, tell me about yourself. What do you like to do for fun?”
“Well, I like to hula hoop.”
“Hula hoop?” *puzzled look on face*
“Yes, hula hoop”
As I repeat my answer a second time, I can almost see my acquaintance’s mind time travel back to the 1950’s when hula hooping meant keeping the recently popularized Wham-o toy around your waist for as long as you can. Needless to…
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…

NOTE: A lot of these tips may seem like no brainers but a lot of these bulletpoints really helped me DANCE and truly connect with my hoop instead of feeling like i'm just running through the motions. Just throwin' that out there hahah. Enjoy!
After three months of hooping with my first polypro, it snapped in half. Conveniently right before I leave for the holidays as well!
It was really unfortunate that my…

I was perusing random Youtube videos the other day when I started to notice a horrible pattern.
The video I was watching featuring a young girl wearing neon-green ravey leg-fluffy things, short shorts, and a crop-top. She was rocking out with her hoop in a garage. I couldn’t help but notice that in the comment section, there was an inordinate amount of drama going on.
Whatever happened to “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say it at all”?
For every positive comment…
