Hoop Dance Benefits: Body

Much more than just a way to burn calories, trim the waist and achieve core strength, hooping is a fun, creative, and personal way to get physical fitness. The physical benefits of hooping include, but aren’t limited to: increasing body awareness, burning calories while having fun, strengthening and toning of core muscles, freeing up of the hips and spine, producing joy-inducing endorphins, increasing hand-eye coordination, flexibility, balance, and rhythm, and re-invigorating the body by introducing new movements. With practice, a more experienced hooper can engage and strengthen more parts of the body, executing lifts and jumps that develop dexterity and coordination and further tone the arms and legs. — Spiral — www.spiralhoopdance.com
