Stardust

“The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t [...]

Hoopers around the world- France

By | May 22nd, 2016|Blog|

Meet Christel! A beautiful hooper I met online. Within a few email exchanges I fell in love with her soul and positivity. She combines hooping with fitness (watch her video here!) and leads such an active exciting life, not to mention fervently promoting hoopers of colour around the globe!

You may think that the blog post's cover picture is a picture of someone hooping with an LED hoop. It's not. It's a picture taken of a whirling dervish in motion. I've often wondered why I felt so serene and centered when hooping. A sense of calmness washes over me, a sense of glory and [...]

I can go on for days about hooping and how it has changed my life. But most people don't get it. "It's just a kids toy, right?" "What's so special about a plastic circle?" "Oh God, another Dubai fad...", are some of the responses I get with intense rolling of eyes accompanied with a sarcastic [...]

Hoop Hack #2- It’s just plastic, right?

By | December 6th, 2015|Blog|

One of my fondest memories in hoop class was when Teeba, Chief Hoop Fairy, Founder of Flowground, hooping instructor, spiritual guru, hoop sensation, epic fashionista and psytrance aficionado, said in her teacher voice, "These hoops are HDPE". I then asked, "High Density Polyethylene??" She looked at me with the sweetest smile and mmhmmm-ed. I looked [...]
