This year, the festival invested in 200 hoops, proof of the increasing populatirty of hula hooping and hoop dance.
Francie Fishman, Yoga Teacher and Founder of Cosmic Hoop Dance led regular hoop jams at this year’s event.
Jocelyn Gordon, Creator of HoopYogini™,facilitated a dance and flow HoopYogini™ Hoop Jam DJ’d by trillion, that guided practitioners in the Spinal Awakening Series and Centered Pose as portals to open-hearted, joyful expression of dance.
Participants were guided to connect deeply with the truth of the moment – the predominant feeling within the Now – and to then move authentically in space while exploring different levels, planes and tempos of movement both with their body and with the hoop.
The workshop was beautifully attended by global travelers from the US, Singapore, China, Turkey, Brazil and beyond.
Attendees included men and women of all levels of experience including beginners never before in the hoop, and professional performers from Marawa’s Majorettes, a sought after hoop dance entertainment group based in the UK.
All left deeply touched, expanded and joyful.
Jocelyn was delighted to be gifted a custom dress by Ubud based boutique, OmPure, specialists in making sensual, attractive yoga and dance inspired clothing for women.
