Self Care For Hoopers: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boulder

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Hoopers, I’m so excited to share with you this vital information that will help sustain a long and healthy hoop life!

Body Mechanics for Hoopers address treatment and prevention of common injuries and low-level chronic pain prevalent amongst zealously passionate hoop dancers. Learn the causes of specific hoop-related ailments including Low Back Pain, Piriformis Syndrome (Hooper’s Hip), Sciatica, knee dysfunctions, and more. Learn the anatomy behind the pain, and easy training techniques to keep your Hooping body pain-free.

Class begins with breath awareness and activation of your deepest abdominal layer that supports the spine. We continue through a dancey- BexStep Warmup before tackling Core Hoop Drills (yes, in both currents!). Ass-kicking conditioning for your hooping hips is then rewarded with yummy stretches and self-massage incorporating physio props.

Stretch what is tight and strengthen what is weak! Bex gives you the tools to keep your body happy, and flow on.

What to bring:

- hoops for waist or shoulder hooping
- yoga mat
- foam roller (LA: please bring your own. SF and Boulder, extras will be on hand for lend and/or purchase)
- water
- notebook
- clothes you can move and hoop in
- enthusiasm for learning and questions about your bodies!
