Hula Hoop Workshops with Katie Emmitt
August 26 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30 - $50
TICKETS – HERE
Spaces Available : 25
Having difficulty mastering shoulder hooping? Maybe you can’t get your hoop back up from your knees? Or maybe you haven’t been able to even get the hoop spinning around your waist yet! Fear not, this class is designed for YOU!
This two hour core hooping workshop will focus on drilling core hooping on all parts of the body (ankles, knees, hips, waist, chest, shoulders). We will also drill our opposite current and spend time troubleshooting problematic areas.
For beginner hoopers, we will talk about ways to make on body hooping easier, and ways to troubleshoot problems to keep the hoop up longer. For more intermediate and advanced hoopers, we will discuss tips on static shoulder hooping, utilizing our opposite current, and using less used parts of the body (like hooping on our ankles and shins).
I recommend a large, heavier hoop for this class (at least larger than 32″). I will have many different sized large hoops available to practice with during class. No prerequistes necessary.
VERTICAL CORE HOOPING
Spaces Available : 25
Get ready to groove! This class is all about finding your flow in the vertical plane while hooping on-body!
In class, we will first discuss ways to increase confidence and have fun while hula hooping on the vertical plane (ie. footwork, using breaks to ‘reset’ your vertical core hooping if it becomes sloppy, transitions, etc.) With those things in mind, we will dive right in to drilling our vertical core hooping – waist, chest, and shoulders. We will work on both currents, how to turn with the hoop, incorporating breaks, and how to sustain core hooping without turning.
The second half of the class will be focused on fun transitions and exciting, more advanced, moves that can be incorporated into your vertical core flow! Knee breaks, the chest bump, shoulder duck outs, elbow duck ins, and transitions on and off body.
At a minimum, you should be comfortable waist and chest hooping on the horizontal plane. If you are able to shoulder hoop, even better! We will start with easy drills and work our way up to more advanced material. I suggest bringing a larger hoop (I will have some availble to borrow and for purchase) with you to practice with, since it makes things A LOT easier!
