Pelvic floor strength instructor Lara Eardley is bringing the hoop back to the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia. She started making them for her pelvic floor strength students with the intention of eradicating incontinence and improving sexual function. But her hoops have become so popular she’s now selling them to everyone. And when you buy a hoop from her, you’ll also get a bit of instruction – keep the upper body still and move only the hips and pelvis and smile! “It’s about making a perfect, meditative orb with our hips and pelvis; bringing awareness to what is typically a ‘dead zone’ in our bodies,” she told The Northern Star. “Think of Egyptian belly dancers or gyrating African dancers.” She says if you get your hooping right you’ll unlock the hips/femurs and pelvis, increase primal (or sexual) energy, rebalance your body and, of course, have a few laughs.
