Yoga means to yolk, or unite. Hoop Yoga is a true Yolking of two cultures: That of the storytelling and symbolic nature of Native American Hoop Dance and the modern day Asana Yoga practice on the mat.
Hoop Yoga offers a 3-step approach in method and re-evaluates form & technique.
I. ChakravalAyasan: Learning each pose and meaning/interpretation
II. Storylines: Stringingpostures together Vinyasa style to learn our Basic Storylines to become better acquainted with this practice
III. Self-expression: Pick and choose a handful of poses from the 30+ ChakravalAyasan to thread a meaningful story of your own.
We would like to train other Yoga teachers to instruct this specific hoop-assisted style of asana practice, so contact us in the form below to let us know you are interested in a training.
At Stepping Stone Yoga Studio, bordering Canada in northern Vermont, we offer in-studio trainings to learn how to teach this style of Yoga, workshops, and classes. We do also offer online courses, a tutorial card deck, and hoops to purchase online (coming soon).
You really have to try it in person to feel it for yourself. Yes, we have a YouTube channel with a few tutorials, a Facebook page that invites you to explore the depths of Hoop Yoga, but to learn from Pippa in person, will help give the cells in your body a clearer feeling of what Hoop Yoga will mean for you in your life.
Order our online course packet, tutorial cards, and/or your hoop prop to try it at home!
