My Hooping Journey

My name is Beverly Larsen & this is my hooping journey

The Lock Down

When Covid lock down hit I decided, like many others, that I needed something to keep me healthy. I started watching hoopers online and was hooked! Watching how the hoopers let the hoop float and dance around them just mesmerized me. I hooped a little before that with my beginner hoop but wanted to learn the magic they were doing using large hoops and smaller and lighter hoops.

My First Off-Body Hoop

In 2022 I ordered my first off-body hoops. These are smaller and lighter than on body and waist hooping hoops. I started watching and learning from tutorials taught online by amazing hoopers. I practiced both on-body and of-body hooping. They both have beautiful grace and flow. Since then I have been hooping almost daily, practicing and working on my craft.

My Discovery

I discovered how great hooping was for health and quality of life. It changed mine. I lost weight, got stronger and more flexble. My balance and dextertity improved and found I was a much happier person! I had to share what this amazing circle can do for ones life!

Teacher Certification

August, 2023, I became certified for teaching with Live Love Hoop. My certification includes teaching beginner and intermediate hoop lessons and tricks, hoop dance, hoop exercise and hoop combos and choreography.

I currently teach live classes at Highland Activity Center in Michigan and also do special events at camping events, farmers markest and more. I am expanding out to teach online and virtual.

I hope you give hooping a try. It really is for everyone. It doesn’t matter your skill level. You will get amazing benefits from it and it will look beautiful feel so good as you dance with your hoop!
