Hoop Inspiration December 6, 2010

The girls and I made our own Hula Hoops in August.

We followed these instructions. I had a hard time finding a hardware store that would sell me the pipe by the foot, but finally while visiting family in KY we were able to get what we wanted at ACE. The silver and tye dye hoops are ½ in 100 psi and the purple and yellow ones are ¾ in 100 psi. All of us except Laini can Hoop, even Jody J. I have since made two smaller hoops and Laini is close to being able to make it spin.

In anticipation of all the snow and cold weather this winter I have tried to clear out a space in the basement to hoop this winter. However about a week after I cleared it out, we filled it with stuff that was in the Bus while we work on the floor repairs. I guess if I don’t want to hoop in the snow…

…which is hard to do, I need to find some other inspiration. I will be practicing some isolations inside. I could stand in my bedroom in front of the mirror like suggested here or I might be able to get Lydia to hold the hoop for me until I get the hang of it. I like how isolations look when combined with other hoop dance moves like this dance. Here is some cool double hoop spiral action! Now that my hoops are inside, every time I see them it is a reminder to have some fun….

    I have to pick up my hoop again but I was just asking around about how to do that when it is so cold outside. I don’t even have room in the house to do isolations. usually it’s not so cold here in the south and I could probably count on a mid afternoon hoop session but today’s high is 34 … WHAT?

    with a smaller hoop I might could work on isolations. I don’t hoop with a small hoop but it would be practice and moving, right?
