Family Friendly Hula Hoop Retreat

 

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 either be added to your ticket if purchasing online, or added into your payment plan.

Note: For safety reasons, kids are not to enter the workshop spaces.

“What didn’t I love?! The people made the event! The open and kind attitudes, eagerness to share and learn. The abundance of fun, smiles and connection. Oh and the hooping was just incredible!”
