HoopYogini™ came through me ten years ago in that beautiful season with the hoop where you just can’t get enough hoop time. I was fully immersed in the flow and movement arts as a Massage, Yoga & Dance Therapist and through my three hour daily hoop dance sessions, a portal opened, showing me the profound and holistic nature of the hoop.
In these precious moments HoopYogini™ was born and in 2014, I began teaching others how to deepen into the center of Self and to radiate this connection as teachers, dancers and humans.
In this training and empowerment journey, you will be guided to establish yourself - to create space in mind, home and life for a daily practice that takes you to your core and roots you to your center so you can guide others into the strength of their being.
"The course is a lot of fun and I'm really loving learning about how the body functions. Also, you weren't kidding about how amazing it feels to do the spinal awakening series daily... I feel incredibly more energized and present than before."
"Oh Jocelyn thank you!! I can't express how much you and HoopYogini have done for me in the last year and a half. I'm a truly better me now."
"I've learned so much through HY online training that I have to giggle whenever I'm in Ytt [yoga teacher training] and hear something I've already learned. Finally did some practice teaching in YTT last weekend and let's just say I nailed tadasana. "
"I am loving the training. It's what I wake up in the morning thinking about and fall asleep remembering. I love everything about it. "
"WONDERFUL training ...Feeling welcomed and supported and part of the HoopYogini family already. I come from mostly a hooping background with a small bit of yoga experience. Both Jocelyn and my mentor, Adriana, have such inspiring and supportive ways of teaching, speaking and presenting information. In such a short time I've learned so much more about yoga philosophy and practice. I want to share the joy and wellness HoopYogini brings and feel like this is exactly what I should be doing. Worth every penny!!! "
"Feedback from just getting started....... I've never had such a good grasp on 3 part breathing as I do now😀 after several years in and out of a yoga practice I could never really get it, something about concentrating on holding the hoop and boom I have the focus and true understanding from the manual and yoga anatomy 😀 Thanks. Can't wait to dig deeper. "
"The kids manual is awesome! "
"Complete this program even if you have no intention of teaching because it will empower you in your own universe, open your heart to love, challenge your body to hooping in a yoga type position, give you insight on leadership and guide you to marketing yourself. This is an on-line course but you are never left alone to flounder. Group support calls are almost weekly lead by a knowledgeable master trainer. You will have assistance via Face Book as well. The dialog of these instructional videos match the manual's script and pictures. I am a workshop junkie. HoopYogini is by far the most complete and well rounded program I have ever encounter. Be in control. Be fierce. Manifest the best possible you by using HoopYogini Teacher Training as your tool. "
HoopYogini™ is a Holistic Conditioning experience that utilizes the modern adult-size hula hoop for flow, self-awareness and as a functional fitness tool to strengthen and stretch the body.
HoopYogini™ explores the organic relationship between the spontaneous spiral experience of hoop dance and the more linear and direct technology of hatha yoga.
The circular nature of the hoop gently encourages movement, freedom of expression, conscious daydreaming (a lost art for most adults!) and improved range of motion.
Stretching with the hoop in familiar hatha yoga patterns releases mental and physical tension, develops present-moment awareness, and affirms healthy beliefs and actions.`
Breath & Body - Learn the anatomy of respiration and how the hoop can assist in the re-education of the breath through direct massage and intelligent stretching with the hoop. Explore an overview of the different systems of the body and how the HoopYogini™ practice can improve health, immunity and mood.
Spine & Movement - Learn the six movements of the spine and understand how to encourage full range of motion for structural, emotional and energetic health.
Energy & Intention - Explore energetic anatomy - the energy centers, sheaths and layers through which you can access your energetic empowerment. Develop the ability to infuse intention into your classes and learn how to direct your students to be present in each moment.
Meditation & Integration - Learn how to develop a daily movement and meditation practice that drops an anchor into your intuition and wisdom. It is from this space that you guide your students into a calm and expansive state of awareness.
Language & Leadership - Gain specific guidance and templates on how to instruct your students with language that inspires and communicates safety. Learn how to speak to the individual experience even within a group class. Guide your students on how to take the benefits of their HoopYogini™ practice into each aspect of their lives.
Sets & Sequences - Integrate the above through intelligent sequencing. Included are waist hooping and off body (the hoop held in the hands) sequences that explore the hoop as a resistance and weight bearing tool to stretch and strengthen the body.
Alchemy & Flow - Experience ease and grace in the hoop, your dance, meditation and your life. Develop witness consciousness and observe the magic and creativity that flows within the lives of your students, and from your consistent HoopYogini™ practice.
