What should you expect?
Hoop classes are quite unique to other exercise classes – You should be warned that fun will be had!

Your first class will cover the basic hooping technique and will explore the moves you can learn in the coming weeks. You might find it tricky to begin with but progress is quickly achieved. There will always be time for one-to-one help in the class so please don’t be afraid to ask. Classes are suitable for all – young and old, male and female and people of varying levels of fitness. Everyone will go home with at least one new hoop skill.

Please refer to the hoop safety page for advice on what to wear.

Hooping is really a progressive experience so you will learn new moves each week and at the end of the 6 week course we will have a firm basis of a full cardiovascular total body and mind workout. We will introduce moves which work on different parts of the body and I will explain which moves target the body areas you want to focus on. I want you to be in control of the pace and style of the class so if you have any particular requests or concerns then speak to me in class or email me with your requests.

Get fit in a fun, relaxed and friendly environment. I am happy to give prescriptive advice on moves that will focus on the areas you want to tone up. Hoops of varying sizes are provided for you to try out and use in class but of course you are invited to bring your own. I will also have samples of the hoops available in the hoop gallery and boutique. If you want to continue your new hobby at home then why not invest in one of my custom made hoops? Check them out in class and in the shop.
