Hula Hoop


Lots of movement that is safe to practice in public is linear. Think lifting weights, squats, walking, running, pilates, and yoga. What about the Yang, the feminine, the circular motion and design of the ball in socket joints we all have? How do we keep them healthy and expressive?


With hands on your hips, start by creating circles with your tail bone--try small, large, fast, slow. Then add hula hoops to your necks, ribs, waist, legs and arms. Play with direction, speed, and number of hula hoops. What about upper body only then lower body only. Now circle around yourself in space. Round and round you twirl!


Is there a speed or size of circle that gets me tight or uncomfortable? In which part of the body?
