Want to learn how to hula hoop? There are so many amazing resources available online for learning how to Hula Hoop. Adult, child, or grandparent (we see you!) - it's never too late to start. So lets pick up your hoop and give it a go.

Where Do I Start?

The best place to start is the Hoop Lovers 7 Day Waist Hooping Challenge.

This gives you plenty of room to learn the basics in your own time and in your own space. Waist hooping is the foundation of all things hula and will set you on your path to mastering on-body rotation. It is not always easy and can take lots of practice, but stick to it and we guarantee it gets easier. Practicing waist hooping with proper technique is also a great way to get those abs firing, sweat pouring and even work on your posture all at once.

What Hoop Do I Need?

The hoop you want to start with will depend on your age, height and body size. For an adult, we would recommend starting with a HDPE hoop. These are heavy and the weight of the hoop helps to make learning on-body rotations so much easier. The bigger the better for a beginner - we recommend measuring from the floor up to your belly button as a great starting out size. If you are feeling a bit more confident, or if perhaps you have a more slender frame, then anywhere between "floor - pelvis" and "floor - belly button" will work great. An adult beginner hoop is generally somewhere in the 85-100cm range. For kids we would recommend a light weight hoop such as PE, and generally sized from 70cm upwards is a great starting point.

Once you have mastered your basics it's time to get some more tricks under your belt. We always recommend checking out the local hoopers in your area and getting in touch about their beginner friendly classes and workshops.
