“HoopYogini™ is a great meditation and stretching exercise!”
Venetria Moon Ra
“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.”
“Fun & energizing. This practice and community will keep you supported & having a good time. Love you all!”
HoopYogini™ is a practice that centers and grounds. We prefer a heavier and wider hoop (no greater than 1.5 lbs) rather than a super lightweight polypro.
What You'll Get (US shipping only):
- 1 polypro dance hoop
- 7/8" hoop at 38" or 40"outer diameter
- Delivered right to your door

Size does matter! This is how to identify your ideal hoop diameter for beginning your HoopYogini™ practice:
- Get a tape measure. Stand and measure the distance from the floor to your belly button. This number is your ideal hoop diameter. Mention it at checkout!
Why a clear hoop? This is the perfect hoop for you to express your creativity!
- Write your intentions and place them in the hoop (do not add water!)
- Tape the hoop and give it your personal flare
- Keep the hoop as is to represent clarity and peace

Delightflow Duo, Professional Flow Artist & Fire Performer
“After struggling with health and weight issues for the past couple of years, and finding it difficult to get back into the hoop or yoga (two things I once held dear), it struck me to look into a way of combining the two into something new. A quick Google search and I found myself on the HoopYogini™ website and delighted to discover that the star is the lovely Jocelyn Gordon, of whom I have been a fan since I first picked up a hoop 7 years ago! The videos are beyond amazing! I feel like I'm transported to a beautiful studio with a personal trainer, customizing my lesson each day to whatever works best for me. I've yet to actually complete all 5 of the videos in one setting, but I greatly enjoy mixing and matching them for unique combinations in my sessions. Not only are these videos are great workout, but they are very professionally made and inspirational in ways that outshine any (of the many) YouTube videos that I've been compiling over the years. I look forward to growing stronger in my practice and implementing this new knowledge in my fire performance art. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all that you are and all that you do. <3”
