The best way to learn hooping is through a more personal and unique approach, a totally private experience…and it’s the best way I teach my new aRoundJoy clients. I also offer smaller group classes seasonally to help make it affordable to more of you.
It is my strong belief that bigger classes are only best for those who already know the basics of hooping, but to really learn and understand as a beginner, you need more individualized attention, addressing what YOU really need.
Not every individual needs to learn the exact same moves, at the exact same time. In fact, some people don't even need to learn how to waist hoop…EVER. That is why I have chosen to teach my clients in this format exclusively. I can meet you where YOU are. The hoop meets you where you are, too. It’s very versatile and helpful to your body.
Small group classes help you get started. Private training helps you stay more accountable, practicing and doing your homework, so to speak, between our sessions.
I also am able to help you get a great start at developing a real hoop practice routine, spending extra time with you personally, working on YOUR specific goals, something I was never able to do very well in a class with several people trying to listen, learn and hoop all at the same time. Since changing to this format last summer, it's been so wonderful to see ALL the "light bulbs" shining brightly as clients make progress in our weekly trainings! I'm proud to be able to offer this service in a new, comfortable studio setting year-round at The HoopShack in Arlington, Texas.
After some training and practice is under your belt, you are encouraged to attend any other group events or sessions offered at The HoopShack. These type of group practice sessions are held every so often as a bonus for my clients. Sometimes we'll even meet at a park, someone's home or another event out in the community throughout the year.
Seasonally, I try to offer special instructional classes, retreats and workshops just for my clients, based on special requests I receive. There will always be opportunities to get involved and meet others who are learning just like you. No matter where you are in the aRoundJoy curriculum, it doesn't matter to us. You will always be welcome from DAY ONE! You will feel more motivated as you meet others at the group gatherings...your practice determines your success and playing with others is a great way to get in some extra hoop time!
If your goal is simply to learn how to get an amazing workout with a hoop at home “on your own time,” then I can get you there within 2-3 sessions. If you want to go further, I can do that, too; we decide together…you are in the driver’s seat and I offer very custom designed training sessions…from hoop skills, drills, choreography…to just a simple daily workout that involves stretching and no/low impact movement.
You also can decide whether you want a small group class, some "1 on 1" time with me or if you'd like to include friend or family member in your session. Choose whether you want to book just one session, or purchase multiple sessions at a discount, in both short term and long term arrangements. We will schedule these sessions at a mutually convenient time. I have a fairly flexible schedule and access to a climate controlled studio that’s only used solely for my hoop training sessions!
I can’t wait to begin working with you! You’ve been sitting on the fence about learning to hoop for a little while…now is THE time to just step into joy! You want to GET MOVING and have FUN, right? There’s nothing to lose except inches and calories.
