Be Happy

by Jennifer Jensen December 04, 2015

The holiday season can be very happy.  For many the holiday season is turbulent, indulgent and sad.  With news as it has been it is hard to accept the happy wishes.  There is no clear path to this state of being.

Hooping helps me.  I use my hoops in the practice of Flow; a modality through which peak performance is achieved.  Side effects of a sustained Flow practice include increased focus, awareness and stability. Hoop Flow stabilizes the serotonin levels through belly massage.  Norepinephrine, dopamine, endorphins and anandamide levels in your brain also rise resulting in states of ecstacy, radiance and source connection.  This can lead to expressive dance fusing elements of yoga, movement play, rhythmic gymnastics, circus arts, hip hop, burlesque and Pan Indian storytelling.  A.C.E. (American Council on Excercise) clocks the calorie burn of hoop flow at a rate of 100 cal. per 10 minutes rounding out to 500 cal per hour on the waist.  

Nothing improves your mood than time in flow.

New hoopers find beast mode best in private.  That is how we have so many solo hooping videos out there.  Taking it to the next level, around other people, is incredibly empowering.  So blessed to live in a community with plenty of classes and hoop jams.  

Yes!  Be Happy!  Stay Healthy!  Feel your Holidays!  Smile!
