I'm picking up the social organizing for Houston, so I am PUMPED to have you poking around our site.

Some hoopers are crazy fun and wear all sorts of colors
And we pretty much never listen to directions. Get off my lawn, HA!
So anyway, hooping is for all ages, sizes, shapes, gender expressions and abilities.
When picking out your first hoop, the BEST place to get an adult sized hula hoop is at NiaMoves in the Heights, and you want to get one that reaches between your belly button and your chest as you stand it in front of you. If you are slender have your hoop measure closer to your belly button, and if you are perhaps more voluptuous, junk in your trunk? Then closer to your chest.
A kids hoop is good for tossing into the air, and for kids to waist hoop.
And waist hooping is for suckers dontcha know, this is all about being creative, moving the bod, and having a super fun time with your peeps.
Anyway, see you around. (Get it a round, like a hoop? hahahahahhahahaha! I crack myself up.)
