Hoop! There It Is came about through my love and passion of working with people, both children and adults within the special needs field, schools and through the community; showing ways of enhancing our bodies and minds with the use of a hula hoop.
I began Hula Hooping Winter of 2011. I had reached my highest weight of 180 lbs, at 5 feet tall. I knew I needed to work out, but I wasn't thrilled about the thought of a gym-and didn't necessarily want to feel like I was working out. Hula hoop fitness/dance had been introduced to me the prior summer, when I attended a concert and saw a woman using it as a dance prop. At the time, my only thought was "I only wish I could do that."
Since then, Hula hooping has become more than just my daily work out. I have come to introduce hula hooping into local communities, homes, schools, cities and so much more. To me, hooping is a way of movement therapy. I have since lost over 30+ pounds-and have maintained the weight loss by my daily hula hooping routine!
Sharing my passion
As a Hula Hoop Coach, my goal is to use my Social Work background, knowledge and experience from within the Human Service field and my education as a Certified Hula Hoop Coach, to share with you how hula hooping can be beneficial to the physical body as well as the mind. Hula hooping is a form of movement therapy, mood enhancer, and so much more!
Through my practice and training, I conduct 4/6/8 week Hoop Fitness & Dance Sessions-choreographed specifically to the class level. I also specialize in group sessions, 1:1 sessions, school events, after school programs, craft fairs, community events and more.
I specialize in working with those with special needs, the developmentally disabled, seniors, and youth and adults within schools, day programs, and residential homes. Currently completing my Bachelors in Social Work from Salem State University; expected Spring 2018.
Hooplovers is one of my go-to resources for all things hoop-related. Through them, I completed Deanne Love's HoopLove Coach Program in May 2016.
