Playing Dress Up

This is my all time favorite hoop skirt. It was designed and created by the phenomenally talented Beth Lavinder and I purchased it at a Hoop Path retreat. What you wear to hoop can completely transform your practice. When I wear this skirt I have so much more flow - my movement slows and becomes graceful. I don't jump frenetically as I usually do. If you hit a rut in your practice try changing your outfit. The biggest transformation is if you usually dance in leggings or shorts to throw on a skirt (and maybe some leggings too... modesty and what not.) Sometimes ruts can actually make learning something new more challenging - so this is a nice easy way to add life to your spin sessions without any frustration! :)

Music Mondays (Delayed Reaction)

Hey Hoopers - !

One of the best motivators EVER for getting up and starting to spin is finding a great song to flow to.... I have a bunch of favorites that span any mood I'm feeling...

Every Monday I am going to link to something I have been jammin' to lately - even if it's a bit late this time!

Today it's one of my new FAVES:
Janelle Monae - Tightrope
