Want to know what to expect at a Coops Hoops class? Read on!
Yes, the time has nearly come! Hoop class starts Thursday 24.08.17, 7.30pm at Kuranui College Dance Studio in Greytown! Thinking of coming but not sure what to expect? Here's a few Q&As to help you make that leap and get into the spin!
- I can't hoop! Does that matter? No! I'll teach you the skills and techniques you need to get that hoop going round your waist! And when we've nailed that, we'll get it going round other parts of your body!
- I'm shy.... That's ok! We all feel shy or nervous when we try something new. A Coops Hoops class is warm, fun and friendly, and designed to make you feel at ease and comfortable in your own skin and hoop!
- I suffer from back pain. Is that a problem? Not necessarily, as this article discusses. In fact, many health practitioners advise hooping as a way of strengthening your core and improving posture, helping to ease back pain. But, as with any exercise, check it out with your doctor first.
- I don't have a hoop! S'ok! I've got loads! And they are good ones, too, made with grown ups in mind.
- I'm too old to hoop. Stop that. Whether you are 5, 45 or 95, you are never too old! Hooping brings you joy and makes you smile, and that's ageless!
- I can't get to the venue! OK, so far I haven't been able to craft a flying carpet of hoops... yet! But, there is a lovely community of hoopers over on my Facebook page who may be up for car sharing! Why don't you head on over and ask!
- I can't remember how much your class costs... It's $10 a session, or head on over to my shop and save yourself $5 on a batch of 6 classes!
- What do I wear? Something comfy and preferably short sleeved and natural fibres, like cotton. Think yoga or pilates or a walk with friends. Hoops love skin, so the more of it you can reveal the happier your hoop! Also, remember to bring some water to keep gorgeously hydrated!
- OK, I'm thinking about it. But I'm feeling a bit lazy.... Mmmm, I know that feeling! But the great thing about hooping is it's totally FUN! It's play. And think you are too old to play? See answer to Question 5!
- I've run out of questions. What do I do next? You come to class and start your revolution Thursday, 24 August, 7.30pm Kuranui College Dance Studio, Greytown!
