Hello out there in hooplandia! I know you are getting excited that the weather has begun to turn (well ok it turned cold again but I just KNOW the warm is on it's way!) And don't forget daylight savings is Sunday the 14th of March so that means an extra hour of hooping in the park! Or in your backyard, or wherever possible since it seems like once you pick up a hula hoop for the first time, it becomes an obsession and you can't seem to put it down unless you have to do something extremely important like eat food or go to work... I remember when I first started hooping, I used to hoop behind the building on my lunch break at work! Just letting you all know that I teach a hoop class at the 24 Hour Fitness on Holgate/McGloughlin every Thursday evening at 7:30, come play with us! If you are not currently a member, you can sign up for a free week at the club and attend any class! Then you can decide if you want to join up after that. I am also interested in starting a weekly class in a dance studio near you so drop me a line and let me know what nights would work good for you!
