What is a bikini body & how do I get one? 10 Hula Hoop Workouts to Make You Feel Fabulous

What is a bikini body & how do I get one? 10 Hula Hoop Workouts to Make You Feel Fabulous

Well a bikini body is any body that is wearing a bikini!

I don’t know about you but I am tired of having images of what is supposedly the perfect Summer body shoved in my face. I am fed up with advertising, Insta posts and so-called health experts insidiously suggesting what a woman’s body must look like in order to appear and feel beautiful, sexy or admired.

When do we get the space to decide what makes us feel good? It is not easy to block out all the noise but we have a choice and we can take a stand. It takes action though, it means dropping into the practices of movement and expression that make us feel alive; not because we hate our body or because we feel they need to be fixed or changed but because we adore feeling vibrant, healthy and creative.

I can help you out with the last one on the list above. Here are some fun hoop workouts to help you to feel fabulous…whether you are wearing a bikini of not!

OK I know, I know it is not as easy as flicking a switch and turning off self doubt and body shame but there are pathways that make self love and acceptance far more attainable. The most powerful one I know is to gift your body with playful movement, strengthening exercise and expressive freedom. That is exactly why I create and share the workouts and tutorials on my YouTube channel. Try them with your bikini on…or anything you love to express yourself in.

Freestyle Hoop Dance : Healing Heartache with Hoop Dance

Leaving is never easy. Even when you make the decision to.

I am sitting writing this from a sweaty cafe in Ubud, Bali. The first leg of our next journey will be a month here in Bali and then heading back to Australia to make a new home by the beach. Somewhere north and warm. I have learned that I don’t always need a plan and sometimes even when I do it doesn’t work out exactly the way I mapped out; often it is far better than I initially dreamed. Right now I am reminding myself of that through the tears.

It is not the first time I have packed up my life and headed to a complete unknown. You might think that it gets easier. It doesn’t. I guess that is all part of the adventure.

Heartache, maybe even heartbreak is a feeling that comes to mind. I am not sure how long it will take to heal but I do know my only option is to dance with it. And so I did.

This was my last expression of hoop love in the place myself and hundreds of other hoopers called home for many years. All of my heart goes out in gratitude to everyone who met me on this dance floor. There were so many of you. You changed my life. Thank you.
