Happy Spring Hoop Fling!!!


“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring


The sun has returned and the air is warming... I feel the NEED to get Hooping! Let's join together in joyful movement and in life's renewal!

Welcome back last year's Hoopies and a warm greeting to those who we've yet to meet...

You're only a stranger for a minute. See you on the beach!

- Anna


If Cooler Air Temps - Wear warm socks, comfortable clingy layers and gloves, fingerless gloves if you have them - or ones that can grip the hoop.

    This is SO TIMELY! I was looking the other day thinking "gee when are we going to Hoop again?" I'm going to say no, but I am going to try to make it. My grandson is visiting and I'm not sure what type of activities we will be doing next week. If I don't make it,
    HAPPY HOOPING! see you soon!!!
