photo shoot

A beautiful August day in Prince Edward Island visiting The Dunes Cafe and Gallery - my favorite gardens and my first time hooping in this magical location. Photographs taken by the talented Mark Knudson.

 Rooftop garden and patio.

I was seeing hoops everywhere.

And finally, my favorite shot of the day.

thread the needle!

video
I've always loved this twin move and wondered if at all i could do it....I could just barely contain myself after getting this move down yesterday for the first time.
And for my next trick....I really would love to know how to do 'the waterfall'. There are so many great tutorials out there. My go-to site for tutorials is www.hoop-trix.com where it's all organized so beautifully.
Happy Hooping!

one year hooping

video
One year of hooping and I'm so blissfully proud of all that I have accomplished in these 12 months. With so many personal losses the hoop has allowed me to feel like I have some control. Achieving new skills, creating a community, stretching my comfort zone and letting my soul move....facing challenges and conquering what used to seem impossible. The 3 beat weave has mesmerized me and now I have done it...I kept cracking up because I couldn't believe I was doing it! Big big big thank you to Emma from www.hoopingmad.co.uk and her thorough tutorial.
