Isn’t hula hooping for kids?
Hooping is for everyone! While once the domain of children and festival goers, these days people from all walks of life are getting in on the spin. Even if you could never hoop as a child, the big, heavy hoops that we use in our adult classes rotate much slower, so it’s easier to keep them on your body.
But this is a conservative building! With very important people! Who wear suits!
Hoop Sparx have worked with all sorts of people and encountered many preconceived attitudes about what hula hooping is. We have what it takes to encourage and engage with anyone. Even the most initially conservative and reluctant participants have left a Hoop Sparx session with a sense of accomplishment, a spring in their step and a smile on their face!
Is it just standing there moving your hips for an hour?
Not at all, in fact far from it! There are a million and one ways to move with a hoop and engage all the muscles of your body. Plus it’s a fantastic way to release tension, elevate mood, re-energise and nurture creative expression.
Can men do it, or is it just for women?
Men can absolutely do it. Some of the best hoopers in the world are men. Hooping is inclusive of every gender, race, body type and physical ability.
Do I need to be young and slim?
NO! This is one of the biggest misconceptions out there. Hooping can be taken up at any age by anyone of any size. Injuries, range of motion, flexibility, co-ordination – none of these are barriers when it comes to hooping. And while it is a terrific workout, each class has options for everyone.
Do I have to wear unicorn tights and a neon wig?
Only if you want to! Just wear something you are comfortable to move in. Anything you would wear to exercise or a yoga class is perfect.
How much space is needed?
Classes can be facilitated almost anywhere: an empty floor, an unused boardroom, a yoga space, an outdoor area – even the park across the road! Give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss options.
Do you have insurance?
How long does a session run for?
Hoop Sparx classes are tailor made to suit your workplace, needs and environment. Classes can run anywhere from 20 – 120 minutes.
What else do Hoop Sparx do?
