Waist hooping can be pretty easy-especially with some great instruction. Here’s some excellent techniques used in Hip The Hoopla humorous hula hoop dance fitness classes from Che Rippinger — to help get you up and going in 10 minutes or less!
Note that having a good size/weight hoop for YOU, is really important. If you used to do it as a kid and are trying to use a kid’s toy store hoop that is too small and light, that hoop may spend a lot of time on the ground, as it’s too small and light (you’ll need a lot of speed and excellent technique to keep it up–it can be done, with lots of practice). To begin with though, try starting off with a larger, heavier hoop, to insure a quicker success.
Remember that getting even a quarter of a rotation with good technique, before the hoop goes down, is a good start. Eventually, you can get more and more successful rotations in when you learn to keep your beat/movement really steady in a rhythmic formation.
Tips: Take it slow. Practice. Play. Practice some more. Hydrate. Warm up & cool down. Use a good size/weight hoop for you. Enjoy the process of learning something new. Remember: Progress, not perfection. Pick/use a “Happy Hoop Glee Word” for when (not if) you drop the hoop.
