Hoopnotica class tomorrow & lunch after :)

Hey hoopers!

I am so pumped about class tomorrow, looks like we are going to have a large turnout! I will be bringing a few new shiny hoops for your adopting pleasure. You will LOVE to have a hoop of your very own to take with you everywhere & practice in the comfort of your own home. Hoops range in price depending on size/decoration etc and begin at $10 each.

I am planning on heading over to Nuevo Laredo Cantina for lunch afterwards! Please come enjoy some amazing lunch & margaritas as we get to know one another beyond the typical class structure. I am planning a couple hoopy events for the future & would love to hear your thoughts as well as what dates may work for you. Here is the link to where we will go for lunch, it is literally 3 minutes from the studio.

So excited to see you tomorrow!

No class July 3rd, 2010

Hello Hoopers!

Pera Dance Studio is closed this weekend, July 3-4, 2010 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. Hoop dance class will resume as usual on July 10, 2010 at 11am. Drop-ins are always welcome to this Hoopnotica Level 1 & 2 class. Please arrive a couple minutes early if possible! For more on the studio check out

How will you spend this weekend hooping? I hope you all have time to play this weekend! I am certainly making time for play – no exceptions 🙂

I plan to practice all week on opening up my Heart chakra to movement. Freedom of breath, straight from the heart. This simple concept yet difficult task was brought to my attention last week during my Flying Yoga class at Pera with Yogi Greg Roberts I sometimes find that in my daily rush of life that I am not breathing deeply and anxiety/stresses have me holding my breath. I highly recommend his classes. You can find more information here:

Jonathan Baxter of The Hoop Path ( and one of my favorite Hoop Guru’s teaches us to hoop blindfolded in order to step out of our self critical minds and into our bodies completely submerged in our own rhythm in the hoop. This is a delightful way of practicing that opens you up for freedom of self expression while cutting back on the self conscious way of thinking that may keep a lot of us from expressing our inner joy outwardly. Be sure you have plenty of room for this exercise, remove all obstacles from your dance space. Getting into your body and out of your mind is sometimes a difficult task to take on, by hooping with a blind fold on I am blind to the outside world. This creates space for more fluid movement. I have found that it definitely helps me to find my flow inside the hoop. I wish you blissful practices and beautiful experiences this weekend and everyday.

Blessings & Blissings to you all <3 <3 <3
