  • Follow My Bliss & Pay the Bills?

    Date: 2011.03.05 | Category: Exploring The Path, HulaHoopla | Response: 0

    Well, the time has come for me to seek a bill paying job so I can follow my bliss as a hoop instructor and not lose my home.  Times are tough for everyone and my work skills are stacked up in an industry that has automated me out of work.  Hmmmm.  What is a Hoopanista to do?

    My dream situation is working for a company that promotes a healthy lifestyle and outdoor adventure.  I would promote hooping as part of the healthy lifestyle that company promotes.  I would lead groups on adventures involving hoops that I design and create!  Perhaps travel to warm, beachy places?  Central America? My job would be within walking/biking distance, allow me time off to attend hooping events and Burning Man.

    Dream is free.

    And I have the hoops to take you to the next level of fandom (thanks to Jessie for that awesome word!). My husband’s enthusiasm for college sports sparked the idea for creating school color themed hoops for tailgating, rallies, events and flat out fun. Work off the BBQ & beer during those tailgater parties! I’ll even make special deals on party packs (5 or more hoops) and weatherproofing for outdoor events. Woo hoo(p)!

    I’m sending out good vibes this morning in hopes of finding a wonderful space in which to teach hoopdance long-term. Inner east side would be ideal, weekday evening availability would be lovely. A school gym? A church basement with very, very tall ceilings? I’ve been looking at Portland Parks & Rec, neighborhood studios and dance halls, big-name gym classes, etc. but would love to find that perfect fit. Any parents out there have access to their child’s gym year-round? Is there a new, cozy dance studio I haven’t discovered that needs one more tenant?
    Let’s chat!

    I know I will find that space…the space filled with amazing people spilling exuberant energy out into the room.

    Happy Hooping!

  • Hoop Space?

    Date: 2010.03.18 | Category: Exploring The Path | Response: 0

    Going to see a space on Saturday.  It looks GORGEOUS!  And it’s close by.  I envision myself riding my bike to my lunchtime hoop classes during the spring and summer greeting my happy hoop students and filling the dance studio with positive vibes that radiate out into the neighborhood!!!!
