Foundations of Flow with a Hula Hoop followed by Open Flow

939 8th Ave


Hello hoop friends!

In this class, we will explore how using a hula hoop can open up all kinds of movement possibilities within your own hoop flow practice. We will take some simple concepts and then practice creating our own unique flow which will be different for everyone. Hoopdance can be a therapeutic and meditative experience. The goal of this class is for you to discover ways to find your own unique flow style and to continue growing with this practice.

This class will be a foundational level class, however all levels of hula hoopers are invited to attend. We will use primarily non-weighted off-body style hoops which will be provided, or you may bring your own if you like. There are no prerequisites for this class.

The class will be followed by an open flow jam in the usual style with community and music for everyone.

Class time may be adjusted with consensus. Please feel free to comment.

Cost will be approximately $20 and will depend on attendence. This will cover our expenses for the event. The more people who come, the less it will cost! You can pay via Venmo, Paypal, or cash at the location.
