Hula hooping in particular, is one that is extremely adaptable, so what are you waiting for?
Let’s get started!
Hula Hooping can be adapted to a broad range of skill sets. The basics of hula hooping starts with being able to use your body to move the hoop around the waist. As you progress however, there are many tricks and dances that can be incorporated into the basic act of hula hooping to make it more challenging and more demanding of your physical and mental abilities.
There are many physical health benefits of hula hooping such as the fact that even the basic movement requires you to work on your core strength. The constant body action to keep the hoop moving can stimulate circulation and increase your core strength and resilience. Long-term, hula hooping can have a fantastic effect on overall body posture. If you are looking for a skill to improve hand eye coordination, hula hooping also ticks this box. By learning to do so, you will need to be able to focus on the hoop itself, but also your own body’s movements – therefore enhancing your hand eye coordination and helping you become more conscious of your movements.
Hula hooping can also act as a massage for the areas of your body that the hoop passes over. This can help to keep your muscles and connective tissues toned. It can also help to stimulate blood flow and lymphatic circulation. As you progress with hula hooping, you can help to improve your body’s endurance through setting yourself more challenges. For example, keeping the hula hoop moving for a certain amount of time, or learning to juggle at the same time to improve stamina.
Hula hooping can also have a series of benefits to support your mental health and wellbeing. It’s a fun and joyous skill to learn, and with the introduction of music, can really help to release those endorphins. Hula hooping to music can help you to express yourself in a creative manner.
Due to the concentration required, hula hooping can help to quieten your mind, and keep you focused on the task at hand. It is a great way to build confidence and self-esteem, switch off, and relieve your stress.
