Spread the hoop love




How do you know if you're ready to do something? Is it just a feeling, or assurance from others, or something else? I recently decided that I'm almost sure I'm ready to proceed with my hoop dance teacher training. I know, very definite, right? There's just nothing like teaching someone to do something they claimed they never could do, no way, no how. Couple that with the fact that the thing you're teaching is exercise and good for their health, and that just makes me want to do it more. I have several options. There are two programs that I'm interested in, one is Hoopnotica, which you may have heard of, and BodyHoops, one you may not have. Hoopnotica is very cool, but BodyHoops seems more fitness oriented. Both offer in person traning (though Hoopnotica doesn't have any in the Houston area in the foreseeable future, but BodyHoops does) and distance training. The distance training interests me more, because I feel that making videos of myself teaching and hooping and having to do written exams is more well rounded than just 8 hours with several other people to only one teacher.

I'll decide by the end of the week. Just very ready to do this.

I completely understand. I went through the same process deciding to do yoga teacher training.

I say go for it either way. There were a few teachers at the Hoopnotica training, but if I didn't already know the moves I would have done distance training instead. Happy hooping :)

Wow I totally thought this was some glitch ( cuz I'm in Taiwan) that brought me back to your hula hooping post a year ago lol.

This is the new handle with new blog! :)

@Slowpanic, I figured you would understand. I see the joy you get out of your yoga instructor training, and I'm a bit envious :)

@Sarah, thanks for the comment! I did a pro/con list last night, and I think I'm going to do Hoopnotica now and BodyHoops later. Pretty excited! Again, thanks for visiting my blog :)
