"If I cant bring my hoop

 I'm not going."

Whatever synchronous situations have led you to this webpage, I am grateful and excited to be part of your powerful & magical hoop journey, if you allow me to be.

#HOOP4HEALTH

 

As Peter Pan would say,

" Think of a HAPPY thought." 

Yes, Hooping is my HAPPY thought & my therapy for my body, mind, & spirit.

#HOOPINGISMYHAPPYTHOUGHT

"Whenever I am hooping, my mind goes quiet & 

I feel the most alive inside my body. 

There is a deep sense of protection & safety inside the hoop,

where I feel  at peace with my emotions &

in balance with my soul. "

"There are two types of pain in this world, pain that hurts
and pain that alters" .
-Denzel W
Hooping is a great way to get fit & have fun with a toy, a tool, & beyond...

"The hoop taught me how to surrender to my chronic pain, acknowledge my body, honor my limitations, create space for myself...

 

...create comfort for my body, repair my self-esteem, strengthen my back & belly,

strengthen my breath, heal my inner core wounds, balance my emotional body,

melt into my voice,

embrace my faults & trust in my boundaries.

In summary, the hoop transformed my life!

It is a therapeutic technique, if not better than therapy!"

HEALTH  JOURNEY

At the age of 10 I was diagnosed with mild scoliosis. 

I wore a back brace for 3 years. Unfortunately as I grew so did the growth of my "S" shaped spine. At age 15 the mid section of my spine was at a 64 degree curvature and the Herrington rod surgery was performed. Post surgery I battled chronic daily pain, severe anxiety & depression for over 20 years.  In my 20's my upper body began to rotate further.  When the pain was at it's worse I was unable to take a breath without a sharp pain in my ribs & low back.  Our breath gives us life & our spine is the foundational structure that our body is built upon.  Living in tremendous pain was the norm for me until I couldn't breathe. I was at a breaking point.

I had lost joy in life & any hope of ever feeling good inside my body.  I felt just as trapped as I did in the back brace.

 

Now at age 35, with a visible rod still protruding from my back, unable to be operated on, yet I have been living almost nearly back, knee, hip & shoulder pain free the past 3 years!

Finding what works best for your body to feel good is key!

I can testify that a pain-free life is possible!

 

Discovering the hoop & it's health benefits of a core strengthening, low-impact, full-body workout was exactly the form of therapeutic exercise my body & mind longed for. 

The hoop transformed my fitness routine & life!

WHAT ELSE DOES THE HOOP

TEACH US?

Let's ask Tony Duncan, 5 time World Hoop Champion!

 

"The hoop teaches us many things, primarily having respect for all of life and life’s creations.
It teaches us about the different cycles of life, the changing seasons upon Mother Earth, as well as the seasons of our own lives.
All of life dances in a circle and we’re all connected.
It’s a very exciting yet spiritual dance, there's nothing else like it." 
-Tony Duncan, Interview 2012

Tony & Mel's Dance of "Balanace"

"During my 2nd year as a hooper, I flew my hoop from Wisconsin to Vegas with my best friend in celebration of graduating from Grad school. 

I did not know 5 time Hoop World Champion Tony Duncan would be at the Grand Canyon!

 

This non-rehearsed, memorable moment of free style was naturally in sync because that is the power of the hoop! Afterwards, Tony taught me the hoop meaning & everything he said clicked on a deep, resonant level.  "The hoop", Tony said, "represents balance " 

I remembered instantly tearing up!

Balance!

Yes! The hoop not only represents but has the power to create balance among our inner & outer worlds!

 

This truth he spoke of, I knew it to my core.  You see,  ever since the hoop entered my life it has altered my life & shifted me to reconnect with myself.  The hoop has placed every area physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, back into balance!" Melody
