Improve Your Digestive Health Inside a Hula Hoop!

When you’re waist hooping, as when practicing the HoopYogini™ From The Core Series, the hoop massages your abdomen to include the umbilicus/belly button, the intestines, the lower portion of the liver, some of the stomach and in the back, the kidneys.

As you deepen into your practice and increase your body awareness, you learn how to moderate the speed and intensity of of your hoop so you can choose the location of and pressure that the hoop applies to your body.

With this awareness, you can start to target and focus your rotations from broad to specific allowing an improvement in circulation, respiration and detoxification in your body, structures and systems. And yes, of course, to create more definition and tone in your muscles and body.

Returning to the more internal aspects of the abdomen and specifically the intestines, the following sequence will support the large intestine and the process of digestion...

How did you discover hooping? 

Back in 2003 when I went to Shambhala music festival for the first time, I saw some magical hula girls in the Fractal Forest.  I didn’t start hooping until 2008, though. I had a boyfriend at the time who was a poi spinner, and I wanted to do something other than read books while he practiced. Hooping soon turned into my obsession, and I actually made my first hoop— an LED hoop from an online DIY store.

What do you love about hooping and what has it meant for you? 

I love hooping because it puts me into a flow state—also known as a meditative state.  It has helped me unwind after stressful days, and it has helped me begin my days with inspiration and gratitude.  I love sharing hooping with...

Personal Development is Essential for
Awakening the Soul 

Have you ever randomly picked up a book and read something so perfect and relevant to your life at that exact moment? Did it freak you out a bit? Well, don’t let it. Understand that the Universe will always give you exactly what you need for the most growth and personal development.

There are many people who will go their whole lives and never work on themselves.

The world has a way of shaping our views and beliefs, making us afraid, jaded, tired, and downright depressed. However, if you are willing to spend a few minutes every day to focus on your thoughts and working out/in your mindset, you can reshape your perspective of the world. Just as you work out and care for your body, it is imperative to do the same for your mind. This is what we refer to as personal development.

Personal development includes:

  • Developing fitness and...

15 Ways To Activate Self-Love

Uncategorized Sep 05, 2019


Here at HoopYogini™, we are promoters of self-love. We want you to fall wildly and madly in love with YOU. We want you to feel important, deserving, and well taken care of. We want you to be rooted in the center of your own personal Universe.

The world may have impressed upon you the belief that selfishness is evil, that self-compassion is wrong, or that loving yourself is narcissistic. We would bet that there’s been something inside of you saying that you deserve more than that.  Something that ultimately knew that there’s no power in your playing small. You deserve to be your priority, to treat yourself like a queen, and to love yourself so that you may share that love with the world.

Our HoopYogini™ program is holistic fitness that integrates Hatha Yoga and Hula Hooping, but what sets it apart from other hoopyoga classes is the element of Mindfulness Meditation. In the Spinal Awakening Series,...
