Get Out of Your Hoop Rut
It happens to all of us. For a while, we're hooping every day, learning new stuff, watching videos 24/7, and then...life takes over. We get busy with school, work, family, friends, and the next time we pick up our hoop, it feels a little "eh". Everything feels the same. You can't seem to connect with it in a way you used to.
First thing to do? Get a different hoop. And by that, I mean a different size hoop. If you're used to using 32", try 40". And vice versa. If you focus on off body all the time, go on body. Force your muscles to try different things, and at the same time you're working your brain as well. When you're an off body hooper, flips and wedgies come with ease, but try static shoulder hooping and get deep into the feeling of the hoop working in a different way with your body. If you're used to waist and leg hooping, grab a smaller hoop and perfect your isolations and palm spins. Go outside of your comfort zone and discover other sides of yourself.
Next, try a class. Ballet, belly dance, burlesque, tap, jazz. It's the same concept, getting your body to move in a different way, opening up your mind. Using these moves in conjunction with the hoop can level up your dance game in a major way. We are conditioned to go with what feels comfortable, but there is no growth there. Keep growing :)
