Imagine my delight as I stumbled onto this amazing video of different cultures, generations, and sexes who felt the exhilarating experience of dancing in a pink hula hoop.

I have a very dear friend in Carmel, California who is taking this pink hula hoop class, and although I was enriched by watching this clip on what she’s actually doing these days, I was more enchanted by her willingness to do something different.  

She is a gourmet chef/caterer to many in the pristine areas of the peninsula, which is Monterey Bay. She works hard. She juggles about a thousand different things every single day. When I recently learned that her passion now involves learning how to hula hoop with Jocelyn Gordon, I was beyond thrilled!

Check out this video, and go ahead and smile. Something about this simple act of shimmying your hips to a thin plastic circular object is making the world go round. No pun intended. I’m so grateful and happy to share this experience with you.

What an inspiration! For both me, and my dear friend, who is willing to take time for herself to learn this movement.

Sometimes, indulging in a little self-care and child’s play can make the world go round!

    I did this recently. It was a blue hula hoop, bigger and heavier than the usual old-style ones of my childhood, but just as much fun, and was able to hula, + walk and hula at the same time–old dog-new moves!

    It is such great exercise too! I think having fun is the main theme here. Needing to lighten up and just hula! Thanks for your comment :)

      Thank you for commenting, Yvonne! I've hula hooped a few times as a kid, and always felt that not only was it fun beyond words, but I felt like it was a great workout! This video and the happy faces make hula hooping that much more cool.
