The hoop has become well known as a tool for spiritual healing and bringing light to your true self. In the past century, not one craft has influenced and inspired so many people in such a short amount of time as flow arts, especially hoop dance. This is somewhat unbelievable yet also undeniable when we take a step back and look at how far and fast this art has evolved due to the immense amount of passion it strikes in those who practice it.
The hoop is a catalyst for an array of personal, social, physical, artistic, mental, and spiritual evolution.
I created this progress video to characterize my own evolution through the hoop in chronological order from year one to year four.
It is an expression of staying passionate, getting creative, facing exciting new obstacles, and connecting with Nature. Essentially it is a message to love and stay true to yourself. I believe that to be the greatest lesson with which my circular guide has enlightened me, so I aspire to pass it on to everyone in hopes that they may also experience the liberation of simply being yourself!
