What my students say:
"Start hooping, you will not regret it. Good for mind, body and soul. Rachel is a fantastic teacher and never makes you feel silly. She knows how hard simple looking moves are and will support you throughout. It's like joining a happy family."
"Trim that waist, tone those thighs and arms and lift that bum, while having the best fun ever! Rachel is an inspirational, patient, skilled hooper and instructor who loves her art and loves sharing it. I recommend you all give it a go!"
What Should I Wear/Bring ?
You can wear anything you like, but you might get hot and sweaty, so loose comfortable clothing and trainers or gym shoes is ideal. But you don't need any special clothing, just come and play! Bring a bottle of water, to keep yourself hydrated.
The Benefits of Hula Hooping & Circus Skills
Hooping makes you smile, makes you forget that this is exercise - it's dancing and playing for adults! While you are having a good time you are doing fantastic things for your body. The workout alone releases endorphins that make you feel happy and energised. Many people find the rhythmic circling of the heavy hoop meditative and calming. It also builds your core strength, strengthens your abdominals (with a balanced diet, you can soon whittle away your waist!), tones arms, thighs and buttocks, develops balance and co-ordination, increases your flexibility, and can enhance your self confidence and creativity.
Circus skills are not only super fun for all the family, but they promote perseverance, concentration, dexterity, improve motor skills, self confidence and get your brain and your body working together.
