In hooping, breaks are when you quickly change the direction of your hoop while you’re hooping. In this great tutorial, katiebug0376 explains breaks from a beginner’s point of view. I’m still trying to get a handle on arm breaks while chest hooping, but this video helped a lot.
The hoops take a rainy day rest…but this weather has me thinking about my winter hooping plans. It’s cold and rainy and the weather guy threatening us with mid-September snow!
Up here in the mountains, outdoors hooping isn’t really possible for a good chunk of the year. I’m one of the lucky ones – move just a couple pieces of furniture, and I’m good to go. Our living room is even big enough for some off-body moves…if I’m careful enough not to hit the couch, the fireplace, the dishwasher, the dog, etc, etc.
So how about you? What are your cold weather hooping plans? Any special challenges? What’s that? You live in a studio apartment in Fairbanks? Your living room is extra storage for your antiques business? You’re freshman at University of Tiny Dorm Rooms? You’ve got an estate in Miami on the beach with an extra empty ballroom? How do you handle inside hooping?
