    Brilliant use of Karen Carpenter voice with this exercise with hoops. I have had a hoola hoop for about 3 weeks. It is quite a weighty one and looks large than the ones you are using. I am amazed at your sense of rhythm and ability with the hoops. I too have osteoporosis and am hoping my limited use of the hoola will strengthen my core.

      Hi Fiona,

      Thanks for your comments. At the beginning, hooping was not a natural thing with me. It was very painful and required tons of practice and patience. Now, I can say, it is actually enjoyable.

      Depending on how bad you have osteoporosis, you might want to think about using a hoop that is no heavier than 1.5 pounds. The risk of injury increases with a heavier hoop.

      It took me 8 months to learn waist hooping. I started hand hooping while learning waist hooping and found that the hand hooping was also strengthening my back and hips. It was also a bit easier than the waist hooping and brought a feeling of success with it. It was also helping me to learn waist hooping by understanding the motion of the hoop. I still don’t know exactly how that works, but I know it works.

      I also started leg hooping and hooping on 1 leg and trying different exercises while leg hooping. I found that the pain in my hips and back started to diminish. My balance and coordination (which didn’t exist for me before) started getting better the more I did the leg hooping. You might want to check out my videos on leg hooping. It is a 5 part series called the Twin Revolving Door and they teach step by step how to leg hoop and hoop on one leg.

      I am so glad to hear from you and hope that you keep in touch and let me know how you are doing.

    pam, what is the name of the trick by the .44 sec to 56 sec . marker.? thank you

    • chi bennett` says:

      found it pam, thanks… split weave…. yes?

      • Pam says:

        Hi Chi,
        Yes, it starts with the split weave and goes into split spins above the head and then turning the body as the hoops come down and then back above the head to split spins again. Do you want a tutorial for it? I can try to have it done by the time you figure it out 😀

    Pam, I am so inspired by you. I am almost 48 and started waist hooping on my 45th birthday. It has been a wonderful experience, and I feel so much healthier. I am very interested in hooping with minis or twins. All of your videos on your site look like such a great resource. I would like to go through them and learn all that I can. I am not sure where to start. Which videos should I view first and in what order? I am a total beginner with the twins. Thank you so much for your willingness to share with and help others.

    Hi, Pam,

    I am finally ready to take the time to make my twins. It’s been busy around here. Do I measure the diameter from the inside of the hoop or the outside? I always get confused on this. Thank you.
