Hoop on your body, arms and legs; improving the functions of the cardio-vascular system. Balance your pelvis in a
natural healthy way. Tone, stretch and relax.
What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...
Use core muscles effectively
- Perform moves with a hoop, both on and off the body
- Demonstrate improved balance and coordination
- Experience increased strength and stamina
- Mobilise and free the spine using the hoop

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
Suitable for beginners. Bigger and slightly heavier hoops are easier to use and keep them on your body. Even if you start out believing you can't hoop, with one of these hoops, you can! Nearly everyone can hoop, regardless of age, size or sense of rhythm.
You will need to be able to read and write short sentences, follow verbal instructions, observe and copy physical movements and use spatial awareness within a group.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
The course is led by the tutor, who will demonstrate the moves and give you continuous feedback. You will be
encouraged to participate and learn by discovery as well as follow instructions from the tutor.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
Weighted Hula Hoops are provided. Please wear comfortable clothes suitable for exercise and trainers.
