Weave to Arm Fold with Sonora Larson

Sonora Larson Hooping Sonora Larson is back with a new tutorial and while the video quality could be better, the move itself is pretty awesome so give it your full attention anyway. She’s teaching us something this time around that she calls the “Weave to Arm Fold” because essentially it is just that. It starts with a weave and it goes into an arm fold, but it’s cooler than it sounds! We promise! In fact, this is a great transition move that will hopefully help with your flow and she shows us the move from both the front and the back so we don’t miss anything. Sonora lives in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA.
