Beth Lavinder takes time out to spin up some of her own special blend of awesomeness following a workshop that she taught in Ottawa. She lives in Carrboro, North Carolina, USA, where she is an inspiration to many near and far. The video was filmed by Trish Stolte of Sirenhoops and we’re happy she was able to catch this beautiful moment. The soundtrack is “Steal Your Love” by Lucinda Williams and you can a copy of it for yourself very easily on iTunes.
While Ontario has been hooping it up for a few years, the Canadian province is quickly becoming a hooping hot spot with the In Flow Festival, Ontario’s First Hoop Retreat, happening in July in Orangeville, and hoopers are hitting the television airwaves as well. Here we find Trish Stolte of Siren Hoops, who has been teaching fitness at the Dovercourt Recreation Centre for twenty years, appearing on the Rogers television program Daytime Ottawa. She talks about innovative fitness and hooping in particular before getting hosts Derick Fage and TL Rader both hooping it up in no time too.
