Hula Hoop Tricks: “Sustained Spinning”

Does anyone else love sustained spinning as much as I do?!  This video contains some tips and instruction on how to safely spin with your hoop. This is not an easy technique for most people. Unless you have a background in dance or aerials, it is likely that you will have a pretty steep learning curve with this style of dance.  Not because it is super technical, but because it takes the body some time to be okay with the repetitive motion of spinning in one place. There are many different techniques you can implement to allow your body to surrender to the spin more sustainably.  Thanks to Spinning Grace (with a guest appearance from KiT a.k.a. The Magician) for sharing these awesome tips with us! Following is a table of contents for the tutorial, in case you’d like to skip ahead. 😉
