30/30 Hoop Love Challenge: Day 19
It’s Day 19 of our 30/30 Hoop Love Challenge and we’re still hooping it up for 30 minutes a day this month.
Yesterday we asked you to focus on all the positive hooping memories and make a mental hooping gratitude list during your 30 minute session. Then we asked you to share one favorite hooping memory with us. So let’s celebrate some wonderful memories together too!
Day 18: favorite hooping memory. Hoop Camp was the best hooping experience. I have social anxiety and everyone there was unbelievably kind and supportive. I learned to manifest my inner flow all while being fueled by vegan meals 👽 I seriously can't wait to go back. #mothership #hoopingdotorg3030 #hoopcamp
Today we are taking gratitude. I'm overwhelmed to be honest. This challenge is changing my life. Even though I've had a rough couple of days I am still slowly emerging from my dark place. Hooping literally turns me giddy. What am I grateful for? Literally everything. #hoopingdotorg3030 #forevergrateful
Dreamimg of #beaches and #sunshine ☉☉☉ Day 18 #hoopingdotorg3030 Sharing some #positivevibes about our hooping. I'm so #lucky to live in this beautiful country #australia and to be able to #explore and #hulahoop in so many #amazing locations. This was one of my favorite #spins ever on one of my most loved beaches #sunset beach. As I said in the last post, people have only ever reacted positively to my #passion ( at least to my face, behind my back who cares #notme) Sometimes people give me weird presents because they like.my hulahooping, when I got home from this spin the man across the road came.over and gave me 6 oysters, a broken #rainbow umbrella ( the handle.has snapped off so it was open never to be closed )and 4 litres of icecream that didnt fit in his freezer… People give me food and drinks a lot….🤔 Also someone gave me a rock from his homeland..someone else have me cannabis oil cream , great for #hooprecovery… there's been plenty more strange gifts..those are the first that come to mind…
Day 18 of #hoopingdotorg3030 ! Today's #hooplovechallenge is to talk about our favorite hoop memories. I have so many to choose from but the time I performed for a bunch of starry eyed children at the night market really takes the cake. This picture captures the moment perfectly. I mean if a bunch of little kids think I'm that cool, I must be doing something right. #hoopersofinstagram #circlegirl #commercialstreetnightmarket #bellinghome
Day 18 of the Hoop Love Challenge, "post any image you wish that you would like to have go along with a favorite hooping memory." So many memories. Hooping with kids that come up to me, hooping at a metal festival and seeing metal guys having fun with my hoops, meeting hoopers while traveling. Sharing the hoop love with newbies at different gyms. But my most favorite memory was when my niece saw me hooping for the first time. She looked at me like I was a magical creature. 💕 She was determined to waisthoop, and just after a few tries, she could. ☺️ I miss her. #hoopingdotorg3030
My favorite hooping memory for day 18 would have to be my first Bisco experience. I went to this festival in 2015 by myself. Just me and my hoop. I went to Big Gigantic's set and was feeling kind of like a dweeb standing there in the crowd by myself. I went to the very back of the field where I ended up hooping for 6 hours. I had never felt more confident in myself or more comfortable by myself. It was kind of a break through moment for me. That weekend I learned that I could be my own best friend. I wish I had pictures of myself at that first Bisco. Instead here is a picture from 2016's Bisco. We were lucky enough to score a professional shot. ✌🏼 #hoopingdotorg3030
Day 18 #hoopingdotorg3030 I've traveled every where with my hoop but my most proud moment hooping was right around the corner. I have a HUGE fear of bridges and because it was on my bucket list to try and walk over a bridge I decided to try with my hoop. My hoop calms me, I get into the music and forget the world around. So…middle of winter, middle of the night, middle of the bridge. But I did it!! The horns honking gave me a little boost. This walk bridge was over highway 51 in Madison Wisconsin. Here's the full video https://youtu.be/3uZGuh7_zGs thanks for watching
Day 18: hoop love challenge. My fav hooping memory would have to be a recent one from the seven sisters festival with #kristarrr. We hooped the entire weekend teaching anyone from beginners up. It is my favorite hooong memory because it was such a relaxed weekend even though we were teaching we couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces. It was unbelievable, I made new friends shared the hoop love and received as well as gave so much encouragement. It was such a great community of women. Best weekend iv had in a while 🙌🏻#hoopingdotorg3030 #hulahoop
Day 18: today's challenge was to share a lovely memory about someone who has said something nice to us about hooping. At LiB 2014, I had been hooping for about 5 months and wasn't necessarily the greatest at nailing tricks and stuff. But when I saw that there was a hoop workshop, I got super excited to finally flow with other hoopers. It was not an advanced class at all, mostly focusing on movement and flow and happiness. I was 100% in my own world, didn't care if I looked foolish, and simply danced in my pink pixie skirt with a huge smile on my face. After the workshop, 3 separate people came up to me and told me they couldn't take their eyes off of me, because I radiated happiness. One person got on his knees and asked me to marry him. I had no idea what I was doing with that hoop–I just knew I was having the time of my life. And I was so flattered that it was obvious to other onlookers! This was only the tip of the iceberg—there have been SO many positive comments in regard to my hooping and dancing, and I am so grateful for all the kind words I have received. They have encouraged me to be the absolute best I can be, reminded me that yes I CAN move beautifully even though I've always been a klutz, and given me such amazing friends across the country and the world that I may have never met but will someday. I am eternally grateful for this community and everyone that has given support. You are all brilliant stars that shine brighter with every ounce of support given to one another. I love you. ❤ #hoopingdotorg3030 #hoop #hooper #hulahoop #hoopdance #unityofthehulahoopers #girlswhohoop #gratefulhooper #hoopersofinstagram #sacredcircle
30/30 Hoop Love Challenge: Day 19 Instructions
Your instructions for Day 19 are as follows, but first – I have some big news that I am so excited to share, and I’m sharing it with you first. Some of you might know that on the Monday morning of Hoopcamp 2017, there is going to be a solar eclipse. It’s the first total solar eclipse in the United States since 1979, and the first to go coast to coast since 1918. To make the most of it and celebrate this celestial event of the year, I decided that rather than having the usual final classes and closing circle of years past, we really needed to end Hoopcamp 2017 beautifully with a special Solar Eclipse Closing Hoopjam!
I knew that to make it even more extra special too, we really needed the right music. After all, the right music can make a world of difference when it comes to hooping, right? So I gave it considerable thought and I kept coming to one single conclusion. If we could get Sunshine Jones from Dubtribe Sound System to come perform live at the Solar Eclipse Closing Hoopjam, that would totally rock Hoopcamp and my whole freakin world and then some.
So, I spent some time trying to track him down, nervously sent him an email and guess what? He’s coming to close Hoopcamp with a live set. I haven’t really announced it yet. I still can’t hardly believe it. And to celebrate we’re spending our 30 minute Sunday hooping session spinning it up to some Sunshine Jones tracks today before I make the big announcement tomorrow.
I know we all probably have different music services, but I quickly threw together a 30 minute+ YouTube playlist. We can all access YouTube, right? The playlist is just three of his songs. The first is “I Can Feel The Sun On My Face” from his solo album “Bélle Âme Électronique”. Track 2 is probably Dubtribe Sound System’s biggest and most beloved anthem – “Do It Now” from their album “Baggage”. And then finally, we have a third solo closing track, “Out Here” from his album “Gas Masks & Crazy-Girls”.
Today’s instructions are simple: spend your 30 minutes hooping to the music of Sunshine Jones. Here’s the YouTube music playlist. Just hit play.
