Check out a short clip of my WeWork class.
Shake off the day, work up a sweat and have fun in a supportive environment! l teach the essential foundations of HoopDance: on and off-body skills are covered, including a short choreographed sequence to inspire your own flow. Learn to move powerfully from your inner core, giving you increased control over speed, directions and plane in the hoop. Each class ends with a Hoop Yoga cool down.
This is a deep core blast that does not feel like a workout! Get dancing in the hoop and have fun whilst targeting muscle strength and tone in the deep core including the abdominals and glutes. Get a caloric burn, reduce stress and strengthen your whole body with exercises, games and dance sequences to an energetic and upbeat soundtrack. Each class ends with a Hoop Yoga cool down.
Bring playful movement to your yoga flow with the addition of the hoop! Foundational Hoop Dance skills are taught before moving into vinyasa sequences with the hoop. At first, the hoop is used as a static prop for strengthening, opening and alignment. Once students become familiar with the sequence, the hoop is then used as a flowing tool (in motion), adding fun, challenge and an upward lift that can aid in a variety of postures including standing balances.
Move playfully through sequences encouraging expansion from a solid foundation. Trained in the Abhaya method my instruction focuses on deepening awareness while releasing holding and gripping patterns in the body. By integrating eastern Yoga healing techniques/philosophy and western therapeutic/functional movement, a holistic approach is used to align, heal, and guide the student towards freedom.
