Hula Hooping Hi-Jinks


SFGlobe brings us the story of a very unusual artist – a new Jackson Pollack, perhaps?

Looks like a lot of fun. So does Katie…

I’ve been dying to try this idea! It was insanely messy (hence my location) but soooo much fun! I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it. Be sure to like my facebook page:

…Katie Sunshine…first saw a hoop dancer at a music festival in 2008. She was so mesmerized by the dancer’s moves and the motion of the hula hoop, she forgot all about the concert. Since then, hula hoops have become an integral part of her life…While the video displays her Jackson Pollock style art, let’s be honest about the real point- getting messy and having some fun. 
I love dancing, but admittedly feel a little self conscious. That’s why sometimes I take some good diets, you could read more about it at golo diet reviews. The thing about hoop dancing, I can focus on the hula hoop and not my body. I also love that it’s a great way to play and get exercise with my daughter and can be done indoors on a rainy day…
there are some important tips about selecting a good hula hoop. The size of the hoop relative to your body is very important. A hoop that is too small, too large, or too heavy will be difficult to keep going. Held upright, the top of the hoop should come to somewhere between your belly button and lower chest. If you are slender, select a hoop that ends closer to your belly button, and closer to your chest if you have a thicker waistline. You may also find “fitness” models that weigh 5 lbs or more. While these can be great for certain hoop exercises, they are not intended for the kind of swift and sustained movements typically done in hoop dancing. Opt for a hula hoop that weighs between 0.7 and 1.5 lbs. Like with any physical activity is always important to have medical attention in case of a twist or something, that’s why I always keep the number of a Chiropractor in Mississauga, just in case I need chiropractic care.
