You're the creator and director of Hoop Yogini. What was the inspiration behind it's creation?

Helping women navigate their busy, full, marvelous lives with grace and ease.

The hoop and circle are powerful symbols. They allow the HoopYogini practitioner to "locate"/gps themselves in the moment ... to see, imagine and feel their personal space and energy, to refine this space and connection and ultimately, to root themselves in the center of their personal universe - in the center of the Self. This centering cultivates trust, wonder and joy which lead to a happy life.

HoopYogini is a movement modality and it is a lifestyle practice. From her center, with and without the hoop, each woman can experience life with more presence. She has greater access to her inner wisdom and her relationships are more fulfilling.

It is also designed to assist those who don't think they can meditate to realize that they can.
