The Doctor-Approved HoopYogini™ Spinal Awakening Series is a six-posture flow that will help you develop core strength, calm and sensuality. This flow moves the spine through its full range of motion while strengthening your core and developing your Centered Pose –your place of inner power, strength and resilience. A strong Centered Pose helps to improve your ability to respond gracefully to life’s changes and challenges-with or without a hoop! This workshop focuses on two powerful breathwork practices – Three Part Breath and Victorious Breath – to help stabilize and detoxify the body while calming the mind and balancing your energy. The hula hoop in your hands acts a yoga strap, resistance band or therapeutic ball to stretch and strengthen the body. You’ll learn how to integrate each pose into a flowing dance. By the end of class students will know how to customize the series to create a daily self-care practice that creates a deep sense of calm, encourages creativity, strength and flexibility. It’s fun, centering and sensual. No Hooping experience required. Hoops are provided.

Art and Movement have always played a huge role in Isamar’s life through music, dance, fashion or jewelry design. Her relationship with the hoop began after giving birth to her daughter to help stay tone and fit. The art quickly became her healing companion as she recovered from postpartum depression. Isamar later became a certified HoopYogini™ Instructor integrating hula hooping, hatha yoga and meditation. For more than seven years, Isamar has facilitated events and taught classes at various studios under the name Hula Nation. Collaborating with different artists, Hula Nation has participated in pop-ups and events to raise money and awareness through art in the community.
