January 30/30 – Week 1

For the third year in a row, I am undertaking the January 30/30 hoop challenge. 30 minutes of hooping for 30 days in a row. It’s been a great way to trim off holiday indulgences and reignite my connection with my hoops year after year. I invite all you hoopers to join me! Follow me on Instagram @colleenhurley to keep up throughout the month.

In past years, I spent my daily 30+ minute practice doing free flowing hoop dance sessions to whatever music is most inspiring at the moment. It has really helped me to develop a seamless flow. But, halfway through January I usually hit a dead spot and find myself thirsting for a challenge. This year I am committing to push myself learn new tricks, and spend a good amount of my time twin hooping.

I am going to watch one new hoop tutorial each day, and spend time drilling that move and working it into my hoop flow. At the end of the month I hope to make a video showing off my hard work. Check back here each week to follow along and learn some new hoop skills with me!
