If you search for "hoop yoga" online you'll likely pull up photos of thin women in precariously glamorous yoga poses hooping with their feet while standing on the edge of a cliff with their eyes closed...or something like that. HoopAsana is NOT like that.
I created HoopAsana because I love hooping and wanted to add the flow, centering, and awareness of a hoop to my yoga practice. Turns out that hoops do all that plus a lot more! Hoops allow for more fluid movement during Hatha yoga classes, help to create better alignment , and provide gentle support during balance poses.
HoopAsana is a yoga + hoops class focused around body-positivity, self-awareness, and being present in your body. Together we’ll explore a variety of yoga poses integrating the hoop for an accessible, strengthening, stretching, and fun experience! HoopAsana is for everyBODY regardless of you experience with yoga or hoop dance.
