Sculpture Garden hula hoop practice

HEY NOW!

I had such a blast in New Orleans while visiting with Hey Now Hooping and attending French Quarter Fest. New Orleans will always hold such a special place in my heart. I had the pleasure of spending some time with my hoop in the Sculpture Garden. Love it when I have the chance to just play and dance freely.

Give yourself the chance to PLAY whenever you can. Free of self judgement, free of limits and boxes. Just let go and see what happens without worrying what others might think. It’s good for the soul.

Have you ever been to the Sculpture Garden in New Orleans? I just LOVE City Park.

Thank you for watching! xo ~ Rebecca
