 Friday 8-10pm :: Part 1- Creating Your Foundation

Working with the hoop as a prop and tool, we will move through a yoga practice to warm up.  We’ll then go over fundamental movements of the body to keep the hoop spinning in both directions, add basic on- and off-the-body moves, and work with hand and footwork to create a strong foundation.

Saturday 1-3:30pm :: Part 2- Building Your Flow
 

We’ll start to smooth out our flow and learn transitions by connecting various techniques from Part 1 into our asana practice. Try hooping blindfolded to further understand our movement while spinning and dancing within the hoop and learn some basic isolations building into a dance party!

More advanced practitioners, come connect,  learn and refine!

Benefits of hooping:
-Hooping makes your hips more fluid and helps to massage and loosen your lower back muscles thereby lessening back pain. 
-Promotes happiness, self-esteem, confidence, and laughter
-Has been recommended to unblock your life force and get it moving again
-Chakra activation and rebalancing
-Improves core strength, tones your stomach, arms, thighs and butt through a low-impact, high-energy workout burning approx 500 calories/hour

All levels welcome!  Hula hoops will be provided and available for purchase.

PLUS…A FREE HOOP VINYASA OPEN SPIN MEDITATION WITH LIVE DRUMMING!

Sunday, May 19 3-4:30pm in Rittenhouse Park (weather permitting)
