Holistic Fitness with a Spin!
Hooping is the return of hula hooping as a fun fitness, dance, meditation and art. HoopYogini™ is a Holistic Conditioning experience that utilizes the modern adult-size hula hoop for flow, self-awareness and as a functional fitness tool to strengthen and stretch the body.
HoopYogini™ is designed to explore the organic relationship between the spontaneous spiral experience of hoop dance and the more linear and direct technology of hatha yoga. The circular nature of the hoop gently encourages movement, freedom of expression, conscious daydreaming (a lost art for most adults!) and improved range of motion. Stretching with the hoop in familiar hatha yoga patterns releases mental and physical tension, develops present-moment awareness, and affirms the practitioner’s ability to clear unhealthy beliefs and actions. Inclusive by design, the hoop welcomes all philosophies and none at all if you so choose. No previous hoop or yoga experience is required.
