WOWZER! The first class held 14th January was a total success! The John Pounds Centre staff said it was the busiest they have EVER seen a first class. Thank you everyone that came along and got jiggy with it!
Over 40 people took part and wiggled their way through a fun evening. When I saw how many of you had turned up I was shocked – space was tight but everyone got hooping and the atmosphere was great. Normal classes will be around half this size so we will have more room to spin and laugh our way through the hour.
The main things to remember when learning to hoop are:
1) Move from the core/centre. Engage those tummy muscles and feel the abs working for you.
2) Have a positive attitude. Don’t get angry with yourself if you drop the hoop. It’s a challenge. Pick it up and try again. You will get there…and when you do, try it in the opposite direction!
3) Try different hoops. Everyone can find a hoop to suit them. Try a few times with different sizes and thickness. You might also want to use different hoops for different moves.
I am teaching this because I wanted other people to know the fun they can have. Last night’s class proved that hooping is accessible to all. We had a laugh, we thrust our pelvis’ at each other, we got to meet loads of new people and we sweated our hips off and we were very impressed that boys get a wiggle on to!
Classes are pretty much booked up already so if you want to guarantee your place get in touch soon. I’m going to look into running another class on another night so add any venue suggestions and ideas of days/times on my forum.
