Size really does matter!
The size of your adult hula hooping is a very important feature for your hooping success.
Many who return to hula hooping as an adult, pick up a kid’s hoop at a party or picnic.
They get in the hoop and wonder why they can’t keep it up – “I was great at this as a kid.”
The experience can jostle the ego and can create a feeling of defeat.

Beginners/New Hoopers – How To Find Your Perfect Fit:
1. Size – Ideally, you want a hoop size/diameter that when you place the hoop vertically on the ground and at your feet, the top of the hoop touches your belly button. If the hoop goes a half an inch to a full inch above your navel, that’s fine too. You just don’t want anything lower than your navel.
2. Weight – Avoid any hoop more than 2 lbs. It is common to bruise at the beginning of your hoop journey. This is due to pushing too hard which can be a result of waking up previously under-used muscles and motions. Hoops over two pounds can exacerbate bruising and lengthen healing time. It’s also dangerous when you start to bring the hoop in your hand to lift the hoop off the body. If you’re developing body awareness, a heavy hoop can lead to injury. For you HoopYogini™ practice, I recommend a hoop weight in the 1lb to 1.5 lbs range.
3. Texture – Go smooth. Avoid the ridged, bumpy hoops (usually marketed for weight loss or acupressure). These are very heavy and unfriendly to the body.
Safely and effectively burn calories, while toning your core
and supporting every system in your body!
