Workshops will be accessible for beginners, as well as offer delicious invitations for more intermediate and advanced hoopers to explore and learn new tricks and techniques as well!

All workshops, accommodation, 3 meals per day as well as and snacks and tea included.

We are still compiling the list of sensational hoop instructors for this year's retreat. Here's a flavour of what we did in 2017 in our magical retreat to the BC Sunshine Coast:

We start each day with an invitation to drop into our bodies in mindful meditation and yoga. We share breakfast together and greet the day.

2 Workshops run in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. There are 3 streams of workshops to choose from at any given time:

One for learning the basics in on-body and various off-body techniques, tosses, body rolls, booty hooping, and more...

A second one for more experienced hoopers exploring techniques in killer combos, multiple hoops, circus acrobatics and more...

The third for exploring movement, performance, choreography and flow.

Choose your own adventure each day. Learn what it is to move authentically in your own body.

Everyday we share breakfast, lunch and dinner together in a grand hall. With advance notice we can cater to specific food restrictions and requirements.

We have open jam time with a live DJ each night as an opportunity to practice and flow with pieces we have learned in our workshops.

On the Saturday night we have a 'Passion show' which is an invitation to perform and share anything you want to share with the community.

Instruction and supervision in fire spinning is also offered in the evenings for those who are interested in learning. Fire safety crew and equipment will be on hand. Come feel the thrill and exhilaration of whirling fire around you!

On Sunday evening we conclude our day of workshops with a Yin Yoga Sound Journey. Enjoy a deep stretch set against a magical sound journey masterfully crafted with sacred instruments from around the world. A delicious way to wind down the experience and land back on earth.
