Hey everyone! It's been a while since I wrote anything. Interesting times going on so there's a lot of thinking and working behind the scenes.
Anyhow, as you all know I've been hooping since 2012 and totally into it as a form of exercise, as well as a way of relaxing. :) I've been teaching on and off in Ayala Triangle but it's been raining a lot so classes have been infrequent.
People do yoga, jog or take dance classes. I like hooping. The case I make for hooping is this: it's fun! And it teaches you new things about yourself. That you could actually dance. That you could go beyond your idea of your physical limits. And that you can do this and still enjoy all those other activities and maybe even merge them.
Hooping is cardio for me. I end up moving a lot and I don't notice the time. Hooping and changes in my lifestyle has helped me lose weight. In the process I realized that I can make new friends (hello, happy hoopers!) and that I like performing.
What does it take to hoop?
- A person with an open heart and mind
- A hoop
- Lots of water! (because I swear, you could sweat a lot when you hoop for quite a while)
Hoop classes in Manila, Philippines? Sign me up!
You could catch me on Tuesday nights in Ayala Triangle (630-8pm). But I think there's going to be other schedules soon. I will keep you updated.
If your free time is different from my class schedule, feel free to send me an email (click this link to see what my email address is). Or just comment here and send me your details. I am pretty sure we could work out something.
Let's unleash the hooper in you. ;)
Hoops are not just toys. They are, but they could be more. It's all up to you. If you've seen hoopdancers on YouTube, Facebook, or anywhere, and you think you would like to do that too, let's work on that goal together. I was inspired when I watched a group of hoopers in 2012 and I was surprised that I could learn it. And have fun. And be one happy hooper. :) I am grateful for the hoop because it seems to spread the joy around when I pass it on to others and maybe I could pass it on to you as well. I am hoop geek and a happy one. I could talk all hoop numbers and hoop techniques one moment and shift to the changes in my life that hooping has brought about.
The process is really different for everyone else. It's really amazing to see the lovely paths that every hooper takes. Hopefully, having classes with me would help you on this journey. Hope to see you soon!
PS: If you're on Facebook, I update my page with performances and some hooping inspirations I see online. Check it out. :)
