“Hooping has definitely changed my life, and entirely for the better. I first picked up a hoop in May 2011 just to see what the fuss was about, and before I knew it I was going to as many classes and workshops as I could. I’ve never met so many people in such a short time, and already it has taken me halfway across the world. I hope now I can pass on my enthusiasm to new learners, and hope that hooping treats them as well as it has treated me.”
