Using adult sized hula hoops (provided), this beginner friendly workshop will teach you basic waist hooping skills; concentrating on the body to incorporate the core muscles to tone and tighten, and burn calories in a fun way.  Waist hooping alone can burn 300 to 600 calories an hour, as a super cardio workout that tones the core, and leaves you feeling energized in a new way.  This play that just happens to double as fitness.  No experience required.  Body type and level of grace or coordination will not affect your ability to hoop.  Everyone can hoop given the proper equipment and instruction.  Tips on how to buy the correct hoop size and type will be discussed to get you started on your hooping journey.

Kathy Weber, HoopnoticaFit Certified Instructor, will take you through the basics of waist hooping for fun and fitness!  This class is geared for the new/never hula hooped before or the hooper who has gotten a bit rusty and needs to reconnect with their hoop.
