What are some of your favorite hooping tricks that crowds or audiences seem to like. And how long had you been hooping before you felt comfortable preforming in front of people.
Good question! The vortex looks particularly cool with LED hoops, so doing that really fast is still one of my go-to moves. The revolving door, or any type of jump through tricks usually go over very well too! Also, the shoulder duckout - this one I’m not yet comfortable doing near a crowd (it still ends up with a hoop flying away from me sometimes), but people always comment about how cool it is if they see me do it!
I’d be curious to hear what other people think the most crowd-pleasing tricks are!
I probably didn’t feel comfortable performing in front of lots of people until about 6 months or so, but I was ok with hooping in public areas after just a few weeks as long as I had some friends around :)
To have humility is to experience reality, not in relation to ourselves, but in its sacred independence. It is to see, judge, and act from the point of rest in ourselves. Then, how much disappears, and all that remains falls into place.
In the point of rest at the center of our being, we encounter a world where all things are at rest in the same way. Then a tree becomes a mystery, a cloud a revelation, each man a cosmos of whose riches we can only catch glimpses. The life of simplicity is simple, but it opens to us a book in which we never get beyond the first syllable.
I have been practicing, I still can't quite get the hoop back up to my waist from my legs. I was wondering what kind of hoop is the best to use. I have just been using a $6 hoop from target and I have bruises all around my legs and arms.
I usually recommend buying a handmade hoop on Etsy in whatever size you’re comfortable with! It’s good to practice with lots of different sizes.
