  • Elements

    A hoop dance flow workshop suitable for all, using our relationship with the hoop to explore movement and emotion. This workshop is inspired by Embodied Yoga Principles and uses simple exercises to look at our patterns with the hoop and ways of expanding repertoire by balancing our 'elements'.

    As well as a hoop dancer, Emilie is a qualified yoga teacher and EYP teacher. This system uses yoga, archetypes and self-enquiry to explore the way we approach life. It's fun, social, deep and practical.

  • Feedback from classes and workshops

     

    “Emilie is an excellent and creative instructor! Motivating and enthusiastic throughout the class.


    Correcting the participants when needed, in a professional and friendly manner. She, has a calming manner about her when she teaches, but still challenges the members to push themselves and have fun.

    I was very surprised how effective and fun a hula hoop exercise workout can be. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and the members did too.”

    "The classes are fun, liberating, silly, exciting, tricky, and something completely different.

    After a long and boring day at work hooping really gave me something to smile about! It also helped my coordination, something that I didn't think I had any of, but I surprised myself."

    "It’s Friday lunchtime and I’m thoroughly enjoying gyrating inside a hoola hoop at an exercise class, currently operating within Hauser & Wirth’s Piccadilly space."

     

    "Amazing."

    "I learned more in one hooping session with Emilie than I've learned in half a dozen exercise classes with other teachers. It was also about forty times more fun.
    Highly recommended."

Classes and workshops are subject to a cancellation fee if less than a week's notice is given. In the unlikely event of some or all of a course being cancelled by The Joy of Hooping, we'll offer you a replacement or refund.

All our hoops are hand made to order. As a result, they may have character! We aim to produce beautiful bespoke hoops - please chose your colours and design carefully as custom designs are non-refundable.

HOOP CARE

Please treat your hoop with love.
They like to be played with often and will serve you well.

- Cold conditions can cause cracking
- Heat, humidity and storage conditions can alter hoop shape
- Damp can cause tape to detach
- Shiny tapes may scuff on some surfaces
- Don't feed them after midnight

• Be aware of yourself and your surroundings. Don't do things that hurt and mind the chandeliers!

• Careful how you coil - if you have a travel hoop follow the instructions and be gentle please.
