100 Hoop Moves for Beginners to Beyond

Every day hoopers are coming up with new and creative ways to use a hula hoop. Variations, modifications and styles. All of these moves come from a core group of foundation moves. While it is impossible to pinpoint the exact hoop tricks that all variations stem from this list of 100 Hoop Tricks is a great starting point.

The 100 Hoop Moves below are outlined in Module 2 of Hoop Love Coach Training. This list is the first 100 moves I teach to beginner and beyond students and it is also the first 100 moves we learn to teach in the online teacher training.

Reminder: your hooping journey is not a competition, there is no timeline attached to any of these moves. One move might take a lifetime, another merely a moment of embodiment. They are all divine ways to explore your creativity, they are all movement medicine. This is not a list to compare yourself to, it is simply a way to acknowledge your magic, celebrate your time in your hoop, in your body.

This is an invitation for you to witness your brilliance and playfulness, your challenge and breakthroughs, your frustrations and determination.

16. Neck with Alternative Arms: a gateway to gentle flow, timing, spatial awareness and the sickest party trick 🥳 17. Waist to Knees: finding connection and flow on all points of the body is a heavenly experience that takes time and understanding. 18. Knee hooping: go gently, don’t look down, embody your priestess stance 19. Kick Ups: explore the many variations. 20. Knees to waist: hello pelvic floor powers 😝

Nb: hoop size will impact how much space you have to safely flow with these moves. On body hooping should never be forced with a small hoop. Build total body strength and awareness over time. If you choose to play with these moves 😘
