Freedom.

Freedom is to BE YOURSELF without permission.

Ditch the expectations.

Accept yourself/life and the life of others around you
Just the way it is.

Love yourself.

BE LOVE.

Toss those expectations you have into the sea. Live without them. Love with no expectation.

Freedom is being YOU without permission. Thanks to Paul for the photo!

We will only learn the basics of each move for you to practice and master in between classes. This is a dance class. You will burn lots of calories all with a smile on your face! Reconnect with your inner child, come hoop!

Hoops are provided. I will also have a limited number of hoops for sale at a discounted rate for students. It will be essential to have a hoop of your own to practice each move in order to master them. You will feel more empowered in class and in your hoop journey after having practiced at home.

Intermediate Hoop Class: Isolations & Variations

Hello hoopers! I know everyone is on the edge of their seats about the upcoming Intermediate classes at Ladies Workout Express Atlanta. I unfortunately did not know/realize until today that my start date, May 28th, that LWE was closing early for the holiday weekend. Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to begin this series until Saturday, June 4th at 1pm due to the holiday. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you! It is out of my control. I am splitting up each class instead of having a series to (hopefully) accommodate your busy Summer schedule if you can not make it to each event. Each class will cover the same things as previously stated and will still be 1.5 hours in length at only $20 per class.

Below you will find further information for this class. Please call me with any questions.

 

Intermediate hoop dance mini- series coming your way at Ladies Workout Express Atlanta 1-2:30pm

Pre-requisites: At the very least a firm grasp of hooping on waist & hand hooping.. These moves will increase strength in your arms, hands wrist, shoulders and back. While this class is on a more intermediate level, no one will be turned away. Beginners are welcome.
**A lighter weight and smaller hoop is strongly recommended for these moves to help you progress and alleviate muscle strain. It will be much easier to learn these moves with a smaller hoop**
Isolations & optical illusions
Covering an introductory curriculum for one and two handed isolations, object manipulation, and optical illusions with your inside and outside grip variations on your hoop. We will also discuss/practice how to add these isolations into your own hoop dance style.
Please bring water and dress comfortably for this class

More information to follow! Sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss out at www.hoopessence.com for more details
This class is $20 for the 1.5 hour class allowing more time to cover the new material. These lessons will require practice on your own to perfect. Be patient with yourself and know there is always room to grow.
