Our winter Hoop Away happens in Healesville at a Buddhist retreat centre every July. The centre is surrounded by native bushland and is really LUSH! It’s an easy 1 hour’s drive from Melbourne. With a maximum of 24 participants, the retreat provides an intimate setting with a maximum of 9 people in each workshop. Hoop Away is all about connection, exploration, play, inspiration and levelling up your hooping – wherever you are at in your hoop journey. It’s a weekend away with a focus on YOU.
Details of our winter retreat 2022 teachers and workshops, accommodation, food and location is below.
Some of the teachers who have shared their magic at previous Hoop Away Healesville retreats include:
Donna is a hula hoop dancer, teacher, performer and lover with a background in Creative Arts.
Recognised globally for her creativity, innovation, flow facilitation and playful approach, she has taught thousands of people to hula hoop and performed with the Women’s Circus, bringing a passion and playfulness to her work that is infectious.
Fuelled by a passion for transformation and growth on a personal, business, local and global level, she is a born facilitator with an appreciation for the power found in play and flow. Hoop Away NZ will be the 3rd hoop retreat she has coordinated – with many more to come!
When not playing with or teaching hoops, Donna can be found training acro, dancing, inventing new smoothies, getting out of the city, or deciding which leggings will best reflect her mood.
Her motto: Do it ‘til you can. And always spread the sparkle.
So all you hoop mamas out there can get your hoop on without having to leave bubba at home.
Kids are welcome at the retreat and so is a partner/support person. And – you can share a family room!
Kids under 5 are free – we just ask that you bring your own baby change table and bed as the beds there aren’t safe for toddlers/infants.
How to make this magic happen? The additional charge for meals and accommodation for your partner/support person is $275 and this can be added to your ticket if purchasing online,.
Note: For safety reasons, kids are not to enter the workshop spaces.
