Jocelyn Gordon Gets Gateway Park Hooping

Jocelyn Gordon For one hour every Saturday morning this summer in Rosslyn, Virginia’s Gateway Park, residents from Arlington, Manassas, and even as far away as Frederick can be found swinging colorful hoops around their torsos, hands and even their necks, working up a sweat and loving every minute of it. According to instructor Jocelyn Gordon of , just about everybody can hoop. … During last Saturday’s class she often asked the students to close their eyes and just feel the motion rather than think about it. “Hooping is such a fun, feel-good practice, and once they get it in their heads that it’s more feeling oriented than doing oriented, once they get that feel-good aspect, it keeps them coming back.”
