It only comes around twice a year. The next one is in September. I can't wait to see who will join and transform!
If you are thinking about teaching hoop dance classes...
Or maybe you already teach and wish you had something extra to offer your hoopers...
Or maybe you are hooping in isolation and want to grow your community...
I loved my Hoop Love Coach training - it was over a year ago - and at the time I thought the best thing about it was the content - video after video chalk full of content, actionable steps, practical advice and savvy strategies for crafting amazing hoop dance experiences for my community. How silly of me!
Little did I know how the most valuable part of becoming a Hooplovers Hoop Love Coach wouldn't be the actual training and unlimited access to the many many modules - it would be the group of amazing coaches that support each other through a private Facebook group. Yep - that, right there, is by far the most valuable and important piece of the training. Sure, I have over 60 flow sequences to use in classes, sure, I have over a hundred different marketing ideas to grow my community, sure, I have sample classes to refer back to when I feel like I have nothing new to teach - but the community of hoop love coaches - OH - that's where the real gold is. Deanne is actually there, commenting, sharing our content on her mega huge fb page, supporting us and offering insights to help us stay true to ourselves and our businesses.
I love this training and this group with every inch of my hoop! I know you will too <3 If you have any questions about the training please let me know - I would love to help!
THIS will be the last training you will ever need
THIS will open up opportunities you never thought you would have
THIS will inspire you to reach your potential, explore your limits and clarify your goals
THIS will be your community of supportive, encouraging and professional colleagues who all want you to succeed!
Ok, first of all - many of you are asking 'WHAT IS A HOOP JAM?'
A hoop jam is an informal gathering for all levels of hoopers - brand new beginner hoopers right through to super fancy advanced hoopers. Sometimes other flow toys show up (poi, staff, wand for example) and that's cool!
Some jams are held indoors which is great in winter or rainy weather. Duh. Outdoor jams have the advantage of a beautiful view and no ceilings. Attending a jam in a park often means there is no charge.
A Jam is a place to play, connect, explore your movement style and get inspired by other hoopers.
There is no official lesson given but hoopers by nature will tend to help you out if you are stuck and ask for feedback.
So what do you do at a jam? Usually there is music, probably there will be an extra hoop or two to borrow. It's always a polite gesture to check with the host. It is not cool to take your borrowed hoop home - this probably goes without saying - but I'll say it anyway - hula hoop materials cost money and time to create - you can ask your host about purchasing a hoop and they will be more than happy to hook you up!
For many a hoop jam is like recess - you get to let loose and do your thing inside your hoop! Hoop jams could be held during the day, evening or night (ooh LED or fire hoop jams are coming up at our retreat this summer!) Usually there are not any LED or Fire hoops available to borrow as these are costly investments and require safety!
Hoop jams are a happy space - not a place to show off or feel competitive.
In a class you can expect a warm up, exploring certain hoop moves or drills, tricks broken down and perhaps sequences of tricks. A cool down usually wraps up a class. With a hoop jam you get to determine your pace, intensity and what tricks you want to work on if any. A lot of hoopers just go with the flow and use this time to hang out and chat while waist hooping.
There are really no rules except have fun and be respectful!
