Isn’t it just spinning it on your waist?
Waist hooping is just the beginning! Hula hooping is a diverse activity for adults not just a toy for children.
This is the first and most common form. Our Hula Fit classes provide you with 45 minutes of exercise based activities to get you moving and sweating.
Circus style hooping is based around learning fancy tricks. This is great for coordination and you end up getting a work out without realising (brain and body) whilst you are learning. These tricks are great to perform with if that’s your cup of tea!
• Flow and Hoop Dance
Once you’ve learnt a few tricks, you can start linking them together to dance to songs. Once you get into the rhythm of the song you will find your flow (moving and transitioning between tricks to the pace of the song). Even if you don’t have a dance background you can do this – it’s very fluid and there is no set form or string of moves that certify “hoop dance” – think of it as going with the moment or improvisation!
• Meditation, mental and physical health
Many people who hoop use a mixture of the above to help with mental and physical health issues. Or just simply to get them moving in a way that’s more fun!
