Try any of these 40 moves, mix them up, use them as a workout or combine them for a fun hoop dance choreography. Then share it with me on Instagram @deannelovexo

Worth the play time.
These 15 hooping tricks are a workout for the body and mind; totally worth the energy. If you are not already then I am guessing that you are totally going to be hooked on hooping after watching the hoopspiration video so I made you a FREE workshop to give you a break down of each move. Best of all it is online so you can start watching, learning and improving right now. ALSO check all of my tutorials below for extra support. It’s a hoop party yo!

As I said, not the easiest moves but the ones that will make the most impact on your body and your hoop dance flow. Be patient, take your time, practice often, play always! I recommend a focussed hoop dance practice of 15 – 60 mins 3 – 4 times per week will have you mastering these moves. Use this video as your hoop goals. #goals
Two weeks ago we learned a ghosting isolation variation. On it’s own it can take some time to master, but break it down, take it slow and then pick up the pace as you start to feel stronger.
Tricks like that one are cool of course but they look much better when you piece them together with other cool moves. So make sure to try this Ghosting Isolation Flow Session.
The starting position of this ghosting isolation is not exactly a natural starting position though, so I thought we could tag a little extra to make an extended flow session with the ghosting isolation. Try this one with a fancy side body roll.
Now it is time to have some fun with your hoop. See if your body and brain can firstly memorise all three of these and groove them together. Remember to allow movment in your body and not get stuck in your thoughts.
