Our very own Lisa SparkGirl of Hiptronic Arts is here with a hooping tutorial for you. This time around she’s going to be teaching all of us how to do a move she’s calling the “Leg Axis Spin”. She breaks it down with some great instruction and it’s a similar move to the neck spin, only you’re doing it on your leg. You can do it on either leg or both if you choose too. Give it a spin for yourself! You’ll be glad you did. Lisa lives in Pahoa, Hawaii, USA.
