Hooping in Community

19 May

One of my very favorite things about hooping is the community building aspect. It’s so fun to be outside hooping and have another hooper come and join you. Or better yet, someone who has never been successful at hooping comes over to get a closer look. I’ve had so many people lately tell me, “I can’t hula hoop”. And a few minutes later, they’re rockin’ it. The look on their face the first time they “get it” is priceless! Love it.

Wherever we go, we now have a common language with anyone. Hooping crosses any real or perceived “barriers” and opens the doors for communication. Wonderful conversations emerge as the hoop spins round and round.

Many of you don’t have a lot of people hooping in your immediate area, but don’t let that stop you! I promise if you step out of your comfort zone and “recruit” some new hoopers, you will have an awesome meetup group in no time! It’s so much easier to learn new movements when you are seeing someone do them first hand, and not on a video. Not to mention the excitement of learning something new TOGETHER!

Since we started hooping almost 4 weeks ago, we’ve gone through 400+ feet of tubing! We’ve had several hoop making parties with friends and we love to keep tubing stored under the RV so that we can help people make hoops of their own on the spot. I see potential for a “hooping tour” in the future! πŸ˜‰

I would love to hear your story about hooping “in community”.
Do you have a hoop meetup near you?
How are you spreading the “hoop love’ around?

    We would so be into a “hooping tour”. We have been talking about how many ways we can incorporate hooping into our full time traveling πŸ™‚ We’ve use the rest of our tubing for our rv park neighbors and it has been a blast. And I am about to buy more so I can have a few extra hoops for new found friends to use.

    Any ideas where to find a tutorial for a infinity hoop?

    Man, I WISH there was some kind of community hooping group around here! My friends and I do get together to practice, though. I must say (and this is with an axtremely LARGE grin!) I am super duper very very excited about you starting up this blog! I think maybe more so than I was when you started up Happy Janssens! YAAAAAAAY for fellow hoopers!!!!
