Hooping has been taking the world by storm the last few ways as an amazing hobby for getting fit, having fun and expressing yourself; and like yoga and other practices, it’s an amazing way to access the ‘flow state’ where you lose yourself in the movements and practice!
Flow hooping is about learning simple tricks and manoeuvres with your hoop then working to combine them with dance and movement so that you can access your inner flow-state, Spinning, dancing and moving to the music with your hoop to guide you.
Each class we’ll be learning some fun new moves and focusing on intuitive movements and creating your own original style of hooping and moving around. Everyone has a different hooping style and you can tap into your creative energy and see what wants to be expressed.
We will start of with a warm-up based on yoga and bellydance techniques to prepare your body then go into some tricks of the day, followed by some exercises to tap into your creativity for transitions and movement then free-flow time.
Tricks will be a combination of circus hooping, isolations and fusion techniques suitable for beginners and intermediates. If you’re advanced and you want to come practice and flow in the space you’re welcome to join in too!
