Hoop progress

      I've successfully accomplished nose hooping! I did two full rotations before going hysterical asking my buddy to grab my phone. To see the video check it here

      The process of nose hooping contains two key points. Balanced core and a steady positioning of the head parallel to the ceiling/sky
      To help keep balance, here's a trick my ballet teacher would use. Pretend you're a doll with a string going directly through the center of your body (head to feets). The string is always being pulled upward, creating a very straight posture. 
      To keep head positioning keep your head parallel to the ceiling/sky or whatever's above you. Do not move your head on an upward angle!! Downward angle will create it to fly off your face. Upward angle will make it glide off your face. 
      Next hold the hoop setting it with the inside of your hula hoop touching the septum part of your nose (where you have open nostrils). Keeping light grasp to level the hoop, make steady turns the way you'd naturally turn your hula hoop to spin. Lightly build speed. Now let go of the hoop and let it flow in the rotation. Keep turning your body!! You should be able to feel the difference between the momentum of your hoop and the speed of your turns. 

      Whether or not you're into giving hula hoop dancing/tricks a try, be sure to at least give my video a look. People seem to either find it bizarre, pretty awesome, talented, whack, or they just don't give a shit about hula hoops. Let me know your input either via YouTube or in the comments!!

  3. I have never heard of nose hooping until now. Very interesting concept but I don't think I have the patience or posture to do that! But it's pretty cool nonetheless.
