We'll be focusing on a different part of the body each week, classes are gently guided and there's time for individual questions and development. You'll use muscles you didn't know you had and give your brain a workout.

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.


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.
