We’ve had several letters and comments lately from people who really want to hoop, but haven’t figured it out. Here’s a good waist hooping tutorial featuring Sass Schultz from The Hooping Life. She lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. If after watching this tutorial you still can’t hoop, make sure you’re wearing simple clothing like a cotton t-shirt. Some fabrics can make things more difficult. Make sure you’ve got the hoop against your back and you’re giving it a really good level spin so that you have time to move into the rotation of the hoop before it falls. Beyond that if you still can’t get it, the problem may not be you, it may be your hoop. If you’re an adult we recommend getting a hoop that stands somewhere between your navel and your solar plexus. If you’re thinner going closer to your navel may work, and if you’re thicker going closer to your solar plexus. While it seems counter intuitive that a larger hoop is easier, it’s true and the secret to hooping is typically found in getting the right hoop for you.
