They’re Waisting Away in Ottawa

brigitte Hooping hit the front page of the Canadian capital’s largest newspaper this week. The Ottawa Citizen reports, “Brigitte Ethier sashays around her students at Dovercourt Recreation Centre, moving with the ease of a belly dancer, and smiling like a child absorbed in play. As she offers encouragement and technique suggestions, she spins a hula-hoop above her head, the black rubber cradled between her index finger and thumb.” Ethier, 40, told the paper, “My aim is to get women to discover playfulness. … Your hoop is your partner. You have to move with it. Understanding the momentum takes time, but while you’re practicing your abdominal muscles are getting a great workout.” Ottawa Citizen
