Hooping found Em in 2017 (and she is incredibly grateful that it did!); having struggled for many years with depression and, to an even greater extent, anxiety, she was often at a loss as to the way to real happiness. Dancing with hoops has helped her open the portal to finding the joy and peace that were lacking, bringing a physical practice that gives the body the movement it craves and the fitness it needs to be healthy while quieting the mind and providing a space to just ‘be’. She did find that being a solitary hooper can sometimes lack the feedback one desires to propel them further in their craft, and when searching fruitlessly for retreat options in 2019, she decided to create the retreats that she herself would want to attend. Coastalhoopflow.com is now where she facilitates and hosts hoop and wellness retreats for women twice per year in the beautiful coastal mountains of Oregon (US). These intimate retreats feature internationally-known hoop instructors, yoga, sound healing baths, meditation, tasty and nutritious foods, beach flow sessions, a private and beautiful natural setting, and much, much more in a (very) supportive environment that is suitable for all skill levels (and where you’ll likely make lifetime friendships).
Em also understands what it’s like to start late and at a disadvantage.. and hooping has shown her that even with those impediments one can still succeed.
