meet Rana aka ‘fairydust’
CO-flowground founder, managing partner & hooping instructor.

Combine part Palestinian, part Lebanese, and part Italian into one big bowl of Canadian, and you’ve got Rana, a sparkling and bubbly whirlwind of infectious positive energy. She is a certified Hoop Love Coach, who comes from an interior design project manager background, meticulous in her approach to making things beautiful.

Rana’s hooping love affair began at Tomorrowland in 2013, after experiencing a personal trauma – one that truly revealed her overall strength and lust for life. On a mission to spread love and encouragement through the lessons she had to learn, falling into hooping became a life move. A conscious decision to seize the day and follow her heart.

Since then, Rana’s passion for flow has exploded, inside and outside of the hoop. Inside, she is a hooping powerhouse – always experimenting and improving her moves; finding her zen or teaching and mentoring kids. Outside, well, just look at her. She exudes colour and happiness in everything she does, including when she chooses to unleash her inner child, whenever and wherever.

meet teeba aka ‘chief hoop fairy’
Community & flowground founder.

Born in Baghdad and raised in Riyadh, Teeba is a biomedical engineer by education, an MBA graduate of Harvard Business School, a certified Elemental Hoopdance instructor, and Chief Hoop Fairy at Flowground. Yep, from Harvard to hooping, Teeba took her most important lesson from business school – finding your purpose in life – and realized it fully.

Teeba first fell in love with flow arts at Burning Man, in 2011, when her eyes feasted on the song and dance of a beautiful creature effortlessly moving to the flow of a hoop. A vision so entrancing, it would cast a spell on her to last for years.

 

When she returned, Teeba wasted no time, and dived head first into the Toronto hooping community. Through hooping, she found joy, freedom, laughter, play, and during one of the most challenging phases of her life, she found healing. She felt relief from her scoliosis, lost stubborn weight and decided that hooping had become the second love of her life after meeting the first – her husband, Basel, who shares her passion for flow through poi.

“What is learned inside the hoop is applicable even outside of it, in everyday life. It allows for openness of truth, purity of voice and, frees us from self-judgment, often a bigger barrier than the judgment of others.”

testimonials

“To be very honest, I was terrified before my first hooping class – the last time I had attempted to keep a hoop on my hips was as a little girl and it wasn’t particularly successful. But within minutes of meeting the group I felt completely at ease – the atmosphere was so relaxed, the instructors mega encouraging and the team spirit among all the hoopers just amazing! When any of us mastered a move everyone would be genuinely happy and excited for them. Not only was each session really fun but also an awesome workout (I ached after the first few!) and a total switch off for the mind – perfect for a busy working mum like me. I loved every minute and I can’t wait to take the next course! Thank you Flowground for opening my eyes and welcoming me into your hooping family.”
