"Before I started HoopYogini, I wore a corset every day to 'minimize' my belly. Now, I'm losing inches, toning and the corset is long gone. I feel like a hula hoop goddess - more confident, feminine and sexy in my body. I'm beyond satisfied with the results that I'm getting."
Venetria Nya Benitez, Associate Producer at Williamsburg International Film Fest

Our internationally acclaimed and Doctor Approved standing, six posture vinyasa that takes you on a journey to the center of your being and brings your spine to its full range of motion. In this holistic warm-up that is also a stand-alone full body workout, you utilize the hoop in your hands held similarly to a yoga strap, fitness ball or balance tool. (No on-body waist hooping in this vinyasa!) A focus on the primary HoopYogini posture – Centered Pose – matched with two transformational breath practices – Three Part Breath (Durga Pranayam) and Victorious Breath (Ujjayi Pranayam) – provide a surprisingly powerful workout and the foundation to go deeper into more intermediate HoopYogini moves.

Which Kind of HoopYogini Are You?
New To Hooping?:
No worries! This practice merges clear instruction with intelligent sequencing and layered movement. Your brain and body will be encouraged to coordinate and synchronize so you can experience hula hooping success!
As a HoopYogini, you'll go deep - into your body and to the center of your being - and be challenged through multi-layered instruction that emphasizes present moment awareness, steady breath and balanced movement. This means no more "cheating" and sloppy pushes. No more hooping in one direction and one direction only. No more "Pterodactyl Claws" and awkward transitions. Get ready to experience more creativity and healthy form in your hoop dance and life.
Get off your mat and into your hoop! Stir up your practice by adding a mobile prop that functions as a resistance and balance tool and range of motion assist. The added element of the hoop encourages focus and concentration - foundations on the journey to bliss and peace - spinal flexibility and stability - important for intermediate/advanced yoga asanas, as well as, allowing you to stay comfortable during seated meditation - and, the embodiment of power and play aka sthira and suka (effort and ease). Oh and by the way, yoga with a hoop are the makings of really awesome photos!
