There’s a new hooping family in town and Tara Wagner, The Organic Sister, is not only hooping it up with her kid and her husband, she’s decided she’s going to share her talent with others – and thinks having a little public accountability about that may be in order. She writes, “I’m fairly certain we’ll be attending the Rethinking Everything Conference in Dallas in September and I’ve decided that for #26 on my 28 Things list, I’m going to be onstage for their talent exhibition with my hula hoop. Fer realz.” We look forward to a report on her performance. Full post: The Organic Sister

About a year ago, Jeanne Lieder of Hoop Motion had a hoop dream. Instead of just dancing with her favorite circular accessory, a hoop of course, she imagined using a hoop for a regimen that integrated other forms of exercise: aerobics, boxing and yoga. The Washington Post Express reports, “Not only does keeping that hoop spinning whittle your middle, but it also takes your mind off of the pain. By adding the hoop, you add the fun,” Lieder said. Vicky Hallett checks out one of her classes. Full story: Washington Post Express
