It can take many forms - a way to keep fit, a movement meditation, choreographed group or solo dance, creative self-expression, with LED's or fire hoop it becomes a stunning glow show.
Hooping can be meditative, energising, playful, calming and fun.
It's individual. A fun, healthy, all-round happy-making activity for people of all ages and stages.

"I learned more in one hooping session with Emilie than I've learned in half a dozen exercise classes with other teachers. It was also about forty times more fun.
