What we're about

The Chattanooga Hoop Group is a group dedicated to all things hooping/hoop dance/hula hooping. Hooping is a great workout (burn as many as 400-500 calories an hour), a good meditation tool, dance partner, and just plain fun for anyone. The sound of a hoop falling is the sound of activity & trying. Learn new skills that you can do alone or with others in your community. All ages & skill levels welcome!

We will start with bodyrolls--rolling the hoop across the chest, back, arms, and trunk from one point to another, finding variations in how and where to release, and how to set up for the cleanest rolls possible. Bring your variations! We will work on horizontal tosses that use backspace: throwing the hoop across the space behind the head and back where we cannot see. We will practice some of these tosses blindfolded and see how much better our technique gets! We will get some practice finding the common features between escalators and wedgies, and examine some ways we can get the hoop around our bodies using these methods. And we will work on passing the hoop around the body on its vertical axis-- using the core as a second contact point." http://lineandcircle.bigcartel.com/product/chattanooga-tn-bodyrolls-tosses-and-other-off-body-magic Please note, these are not affiliated/run by Chattanooga Hoop Group, Hooper's Bazaar, Jessica Boyangiu, etc. unless noted.
