Healing Through Hooping in Middle Earth. Grace Raven of HoopGrace.com takes us to Middle Earth for some healing through hooping set against the backdrop of Kaikoura. Grace says “I have been dealing with some health issues, and one approved method of pain management for my condition is consistent exercise, especially dancing. Recently I was able to find healing in Kaikoura on the South Island of New Zealand. A magical wonderland of baby seals sleeping under waterfalls and snow-capped mountain ranges plunging dramatically into the Pacific Ocean, Kaikoura is and will always remain one of my favorite places on earth.” Grace lives in Tauranga, New Zealand, and the soundtrack for this is “Native Chant” by Mikey the Que and you can easily download a free copy for your own hooping and healing session on Soundcloud.
