Yoga and Hula Hooping: Beauty in Motion (Video)

Our bodies are amazing – we are finding this every day in our yoga practice. We discover new movements, new connections, new opportunities to explore, and sometimes new opportunities to be playful.
Meet the inspiring and whimsical Soyela Shafer, a yoga and hula hoop instructor based in San Juan Del Sur in Nicaragua. Soyela demonstrates the beautiful connection between the yoga and hoop world which allows our expressive, fun and artistic sides to shine.
This coupling of hooping and yoga is just as it sounds; doing yoga while hula hooping! Practitioners find this style builds more balance, strength, breathwork and body awareness. Call it Yoga Hooping, Hula Yoga, Hoop Yoga or simply mesmerizing as Soyela shows off her mad skills and demonstrates the freedom of the practice.
