Holistic Fitness with a Spin!
Find Your Center. Move From Your Core.
HoopYogini™ is transformational fitness integrating hula hooping with hatha yoga and mindfulness meditation.
HoopYogini 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 required.
