Level UP

Well, once again another summer has gone zooming by, and I’m sitting by a window with a beautiful view of the mountains that will soon be my new home. Last week, the Flowlab team was delighted to share our love of hooping through vending and hosting hoop jams at Shambhala Music Festival in the beautiful Kootenays, and this week, I’m delighted to relax for just a moment surrounded by the…

Guided Practice Jams

Hey all – with summer approaching, I’ve been getting lots of questions about summer hoop classes and whether or not they’ll be running. Summer is a time for travel and play for many, and that means lower numbers of hooper registrations, so unfortunately there will not be any series of classes during July or August of this year.

Carving Out Time & Space: 10 Minutes a Day

This past Tuesday I issued the challenge to the students in my Hooping Basics and Beyond the Basics classes to try to carve out 10 minutes a day for a little hoop session. Lately I’ve been finding that the pace of my current life tends to create an erratic schedule for my hoop practice – some days, I’m hooping for 8 or more hours in a single day if I’m teaching…

A Tribute to Peace (& Quiet)

Yesterday I had the opportunity to spend an entire day teaching hoopdance to grade 1s and 2s and it was fantastic! I got to boogie down with a ton of little rockstars (when you say “show me your best dance moves!” they DO) and I got a little bit of quiet time over the noon hour to enjoy the beautiful hardwood stage floor. And, I gained an even deeper respect for…

Hoop Class Jitters

I am so grateful for the beautiful outdoor hooping weather we’ve been enjoying these past couple of weeks, and taking advantage of as much of it as possible while gearing up for this Tuesday and our fall series of hoop classes. The fall series has always had an extra buzz to it, perhaps because so many of us have either been inspired by seeing hooping at a festival or a…

Summer Hours

As you can tell by the time since I last updated the blog, it’s been a busy summer at Flowlab and it’s only getting busier. Our festival touring season has been stellar so far, but we’re gearing up for the Shambhala Music Festival in just 18 more days, and that means that our schedule is packed with production, preparation, and eventually some clever packing to get it all there! With…

Evoking Awesome

Happy last day of the long weekend, my Canadian counterparts! What an awesome treat it has been to enjoy incredible weather from start to finish, despite all of the weatherman’s predictions of rain. I was so excited to get my hands on a new Evoke from Astral Hoops while I was away at Hoop Convergence, and I’ve been wanting to use the backdrop of refinery row for a video for…
