We now return to our regularly scheduled programming...

Christmas was here and gone in a flash.  Thank goodness I had yesterday to stay home and decompress.  My son had me up at 5 a.m. Christmas Eve to tell me it snowed.  Christmas day came at the wee early hour of 4 a.m.  I am not complaining at all.  Watching his six year old enthusiasm was absolute bliss!  Just wish we could have snuck in a nap or two ;)

I also loved watching my son play with his new camera.  He received a lovely little Fuji Finepix.  Can't wait to download his pictures to see what caught his eye. 

Only 8 more days till our first hoop jam!

What Is Hooping?

“Hooping” is a term for hula hooping with large customized hoops.

Hooping is way more fun than the hula hooping you remember as a child, because the bigger and heavier the hoop, the slower it rotates around your body. This means that even if you think you can’t hoop, with one of these hoops, you can! Everybody can hoop, regardless of age, size, or sense of rhythm. When you’re using a customized hoop the rotation is slow enough that even clumsy amateurs can keep the hoop going — and it’s not too hard to get into dancing and even doing tricks.  (this description was borrowed from hooping.org)

·        Hooping is a great workout.  I find tutorials online and practice, practice, practice until I learn a new trick.  Hours will go by but it doesn’t feel like a work out because I’m having so much fun. 

·        Hooping can be meditative.  The hoop rotating around my body is very relaxing.

·        Hooping can also be about nothing but pure joy.  When I go to a park, throw a bunch of hoops out, and turn on some music it instantly attracts people that want to have fun.  

www.hooping.org is a very informational hoop website.  

Happy Hooping!

First Hoop Jam scheduled for January 5th

I am getting really excited for my first hoop jam.  I have reserved space at a local gym starting January 5th from 6-8.  I have no idea how many people are going to show up.  I do know that since I starting making and selling hoops a few months ago I have put 75 hoops out into the world for people to enjoy.  This makes me giddy.

If you would like more information regarding my hoop jam please email me.  Thanks!
