1. Mood Enhancer

When you hoop up a sweat & increase your heart rate levels of neurochemicals serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine rise in your body. This is what makes you feel oh so good while dancing around in your hoop.

2. Belly Blaster

Excess fat around the midsection is a strong risk factor for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even some types of cancers. Blasting away belly fat by hooping is not only fun but it is essential for your health.

3. Stand Taller

Core strength is king! The strong core you gain from hooping will not only help to prevent pain and injury it will strengthen and improve your posture.

4. Disco Dancer

There is nothing worse than hearing your fav song come on but feeling too intimidated to dance and express yourself. The hoop is the ultimate dance teacher and partner.

Hooping uses the left and right side of the brain and body improving strength and balance. When the body and mind are in balance so is life. The ultimate goal.

6. Brain Booster

Our beautiful brains have the ability to grow with new behaviours, experiences and focus. This is called neuroplasticity. As hoopers constantly learning moves and meeting new challenges we are strengthening our brains.

A strong, healthy heart is essential. Increasing the heart rate often through hooping not only builds stamina and strength but helps to burn fat and support weight loss.

21 Day Hoop Flow Challenge : Access Your Unique Hoop Dance Flow

Get ready to rock a new hoop challenge that is going to knock your Unicorn socks off.

Let’s talk about the F word! Yep the four letter one. 

F – L – O – W

Hoop dance FLOW

What does it all mean? Where do we find it? How do we get there? What should it look like? How must it feel?

Woah woah woah, too many hooping questions. 

You know that little tingling feeling you get when everything is just right in your circle, when you don’t think you just move and you feel like you could play forever? That’s flow. It is actually a state of focus. With energy. Flow is when you enjoy the process. Pretty cool huh? It is not something you search for, rather it is something you access. The most awesome thing is that it is always inside of you BUT you must dance, move and play to unlock it.

So that is exactly what we are going to do from November 1. Together. For 21 days. Dance. Move. Play. 

Every day I will share with you a new concept lesson to help you clear a pathway for your hoop dance flow and a daily flow session lesson that you can use as flow inspiration.

Yes that is 42 video lessons for you to play with and go back over any time you need + playlists + a support group + …HERE. Watch the video on this page and check out all the details for this challenge. I explain it more there.

If you have been hooping for more than a couple of days you have probably heard about the concept of Hoop Dance Flow. There are hoopers all over the world “searching” for their hoop dance flow. But I have to wonder if we truly understand the meaning of flow. You see, flow is not something that we search for it is something that we access. But we need to get rid of the blocks before we can create a clear pathway.

There are three major block to hoop dance flow.

  1. Apathy : this is when you have accumulated a few hoop dance moves but your learning has kind of stalled and you are not quite sure where to go next so you are kind of doing the same moves over and over again.
  2. Boredom : this is when your skills are really improving but you don’t really have any new challenges so you are stuck in a hoop dance rut.
  3. Anxiety : when the challenges appear really high and you feel like your skills are just not quite improving as fast as you would like so everything seems a bit overwhelming.

So here is how I propose that we overcome these 3 blocks and we access our hoop dance flow together. We go on a journey together. 21 days. Every day I am going to give you a concept lesson plus a fresh, new hoop flow session so that you can open up to new tricks, transitions and technique.

Let’s call it the 21 day hoop flow challenge. And yes there will be challenges but you can go back over any of the lessons or flow sessions whenever you need and you will have extra support from me (a lot of it!)

The first 21 day hoop flow challenge starts November 1, 2016 and you can find more details here and sign up to get prepared to access your own unique hoop flow with me and a bunch of amazing hoopers from around the world!

Hoop Love Your Body : A full body workout with your hula hoop

Hoop Love Your Body : A full body workout with your hula hoop

Hoop Love Your Body started from a desire to build  a movement practice that was conscious, connected and flexible. A series of workouts, hoop drills and training sessions that would keep hoopers focussed, strong…but they had to be FUN!

My daily plan had to have a structure, so I didn’t get to the gym/park/studio/backyard and not know what to do or waste my time, it needed to be flexible in case my schedule changed, it needed to motivate me and be super effective for regaining my strength, fitness, balance and super hooper powers…plus elevate my mood and help me feel changes.

Woah. That was a lot.

I brought together all of the fun and effective elements that had given me success and made me feel amazing (most important!) over the years. Let’s call them the Hoop Love Your Body Elements.

Hula Hoop Workout for Beginners – Waist Hooping

One of the most fun hoop elements is the HLYB Workout. This is an interval training style workout. There are 8 intervals, 30-40secs each with a 10 sec rest for transition or stretch. That is 7 moves plus 1 flow session using the 7 selected moves. Check out the chart below to make up your own HLYB workouts or follow along with me int he video examples. You are going to love these full body workouts. Not only will they help you drill some moves for awesome hoop break throughs but they are ideal to mix in with your daily movement and exercise schedule.
