    "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.”

    - Sam Bernard, Studio Manager
    Fitness and Wellbeing Centre
    HSBC, Canary Wharf, London

    "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."

    - Franca, Bristol

    "Amazing."

    - Vicky Gritt, Bristol

    "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."

    Emilie Joy Rowell

    Professional hoop dancer.

    Emilie has been teaching hoop dance for almost 10 years. She first picked it up in 2009 after seeing Grace Jones rock the hoop on stage; she realised life was missing something circular and started learning. Since then she’s been hooked on hoop and has performed in large choreographed acts as well as solo and smaller group shows across the UK, and was in the final 10 of Hooping Idol 2014.

     

    She’s taught over 1,000 people to hoop at classes, festivals and workshops including pensioners, policemen, toddlers and bankers. Interested in hooping as a release and a challenge; a tool for creativity and health.

     

    She's also a fully qualified yoga teacher, so you know you're in safe hands.

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.
