      Tracie,
      We had a lot of fun yesterday meeting everyone and teaching you hooping. Did you buy one of the big hoops? It is best not to try the body hooping with the smaller hoops.
      The body hooping is more difficult, because it requires moving our body in ways we are not used to moving. At the demo yesterday, everyone had the idea of how to do it. It just takes lots of practice and energy to keep it going for longer periods of time. Don’t be discouraged. It took me 6 months to learn waist hooping.

      If you would like me to make a free video tutorial of waist hooping, I will do that and post it on my website.

      Brooke is going to be scheduling classes for me to come back to teach you more.

    HI Pam:
    I have been hooping about 3 years but just started a few weeks ago with minis and came across your videos. The short version “WOW”.
    I wanted to start you free videos but I can’t seem to get them to play. Any tips? Also may I ask how long you have been hooping with 2 hoops?

    • Pam says:

      Hi Paula,
      Thank you very much for your comments. I have been twin hooping about 2 1/2 years. I actually started twin hooping at the same time that I started with a single hoop. I have osteoporosis and I had a lot of trouble with on the body hooping because of the pain and lack of strength in my hips and legs. Twin hooping really clicked with me and gave me a great sense of success. It also helped build my strength and coordination which helped with on the body hooping. I will be 60 years old this month and I’ve found that hooping is reversing my osteoporosis without medication :)
      I sent you an email with instructions on viewing the videos. Let me know if you have trouble with it.

    Pam,
    A quick up-date: my husband has been away for the weekend and so I took the opportunity to nail the 3 beat weave and taking a leg/in as part of the revolving door. Both of these are moves I have tried to learn countless times before and have been struggling to get and to break some bad habits formed along the way. In each video, there was a moment that “clicked” and I was able to do the move. In the 3 beat video it was when you said to do the full rotation with the arm that crosses on top – bang got it and for the leg back i move it the suggestion to take a step turn and keep moving with the flow of the hoop. I keep working these moves and they are feeling good. Thanks again and I’ll keep you posted on my progress!

    • Pam says:

      Hi Mary,
      So glad to hear about your progress. Both of those moves are very difficult. Congratulations and keep up the good work. Would love to see a video of you practicing these moves.

    Hi Pam,
    we are brand new at this and are getting our 3 and 4 lb. hoops next week.In starting the waist hooping, how many minutes do we do this exercise?
    thanks,
    john & sherri

    • Pam says:

      Glad to have you on board. I would not recommend using the 3 and 4 lb. hoops. I tried a 3 lb. hoop when I first started hooping. After about 30 seconds of using it, I got sick to my stomach and felt like I was going to throw up. Generally, beginner hoops weigh about 1 1/2 lb. You can make them yourself or purchase them online. I have a tutorial on how to make a hoop on my website. If you have any questions, let me know.

  5. Susan Wilson says:

    My mum and I are starting to hoop this week. My mum has osteoporosis and when I saw your story on the internet I told her and she was very excited. Unfortunately I only have the PC in the office and she cannot see your videos. Are these tutorials available on dvd (I have a multi region player) or on video? I would be interested in having these to show my mum at home. Do you have these on dvd/video to sell to people who want to learn hooping with osteoporosis? I live in London, UK by the way and finally, you look great hooping! Kind regards, Susan Wilson.

    • Pam says:

      Hi Susan, I do not have dvds. You can download the videos to your files on your computer and then copy them to a disc if you have a dvd player.

    Hey Pam,

    Thanks again for all your hard work in making this site! I have a couple of requests (for which tutorials may already exist but I haven’t been able to find them):
    - Figure 8 w/ minis spinning above the head?
    - On-body horizontal twins – e.g. shoulders and knees at the same time, waist and chest, etc.
    Thanks!!

    Liz

    • Pam says:

      Hi Liz,
      Thanks for your comments. Check out my tutorial Twins Turns Part 4 at 7:00. Is that the move you’re referring to as the Figure 8 above the head? If so, it is called the Windmill and I teach it on this video.

    Hi Pam,

    Just wanted to say I am so happy to have discovered your website and tutorials! I have been hooping for a year now, and am starting to learn minis and twins, which is how I found your youtube channel. I can’t wait to start working through your tutorials, and I love how organized your site is.

    But I was mostly amazed to find YOU and your AMAZING skills! I have been trying to get my mom and my bf’s mom (both of whom have earlier signs of osteoporosis) into hooping, because it has made me so much happier and healthier, but I think they have found many of the tutorials out there to be intimidating, or they have found it hard to know where to begin, or they have taken one look at some of the most popular videos on youtube and thought “nope, that’s not for me”. I have sent them both the info for your site, so my hope is that they will get INSPIRED, I know I am. :)

    I do have one quick question, if I was to make some beginner hoops for people with early osteoporosis, what size and tubing thickness would you recommend? I know the bigger heavier hoops are much easier for learning waist hooping, but it sounds like I also don’t want to make them too heavy. I was planning on making them each a “core” hoop and a “hand” hoop so they can practice whatever they want easily.

    Thanks again!
    Dana

    Hi Pam,

    thank you so much for your time and dedication and I really appreciate the tutorials which you make available. I was already having fun body hooping but now that I have learned so much from you, my twin hooping is giving me more and more pleasure. Your expert teaching makes it fun to learn new skills.

    You are a wonderful person and thank you again for sharing your gift with the world.
    Happy hooping from Carole in London, England

      Hi Carole,
      Thank you for your comments and for watching my tutorials. I am happy to be a part of your twin hooping experience. Let me know if you have questions on the tutorials. If you have a video of you doing one of the twin moves, I would love to post it on my website.

      Keep in touch. I would be interested in hearing about your progress.

      Pam

    Dear Pam: I am absolutely enchanted by your videos! Your arm work is amazing and I really appreciate your tutorials.

    What size hoops did you use in the “Tricky Twins” video?

    Thanks,

    Mic.

    Hi Pam,
    I am 62 years old with severe Osteoporosis. I can hip hooping, nothing fancy, just on both sides. (30 min. left, 30 min. to the right). I use heavy weight one, that is 2″ above my belly button) I have discovered your site (thank you, so glad I did!) and see that you are hooping with a small one. I need your help choosing the best one you recommend for me to buy from this site I found (http://yourhoop.com/index.php/Build-Your-Own-Hoop-Supplies/Adult-DIY-Hoop), or if you have another place you recommend I should buy it, I would really appreciate it!
    Thank you very much, Rachel.

    Hi Novia,
    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
    Are you Rob Baxter’s sister?
    I don’t ship hoops, but I can tell you how to make a hoop. I have a tutorial on how to make hoops. It’s not difficult.
    Where are you located? Sometimes I will travel to different locations to show people how to get started hooping.
    Pam
