Client Testimonials

Rachel came to teach my 18 strong brownie pack (plus four leaders) to hoop dance during one of our regular meetings. The pack range in age between 7 and 10 and their hooping experience goes from a self styled champion hooper to brownies and leaders who couldn’t hoop. Rachel took time to work with each brownie individually and by the end of the evening all of the pack had learned a routine, nailed some cool hula tricks and had a really good time. I can’t fault Rachel’s enthusiasm, or her ability to relate to the girls, and I don’t think there is anyone she can’t teach to Hula – I may be biased because she taught me. I thoroughly recommend Rachel and her hoops for a fun brownie or guide evening.

Our centre arranged for Rachel to provide 12 sessions of hula hooping to adults living with mental health issues. From the moment Rachel first came in, with her bubbly smile and enthusiasm, we knew that people would really enjoy the sessions and get so much out of them. Some were worried that they could not do it or their health issues would be a factor but once they had all had a go, they realized how fun, simple and entertaining it was. People would leave with a smile on their face and feel that they had had a good physical workout. The sessions were so popular that we hope to be inviting Rachel back to do more sessions with us soon.
