Anah held a 3 day workshop in Union, Maine. I took part in Sunday's 3 hour session. To get things going she had us start at one of the gym and hoop our way to the other end, each time having us do something different and challenging; hooping real fast, hooping real slow, Cris-crossing paths, and dancing our way over to the other side.

Everyone takes away different components from a hoop workshop. My experience was really refreshing. It helps me to break through these temporary plateaus that I will hit sometimes. I'm so grateful to be able to learn from some of the most incredible people.
Anah's energy was fantastic. She has been essential to the development of modern hoop dance and a pioneer in spreading the joy that hula hooping brings so many of us today. To purchase one of her Hoop DVDs or to learn more about a retreat coming near you, visit her website.
