  • youre a great teacher…But I think my knee (area) is so sore from tryin to bring it up, lol…hmmm…I feel like I just got jumped, lol…But I cant stop!! πŸ™‚

  • man your tutorials really are great –
    i’ve been trying to knee hoop for about a week and I could get it every once in a while, but the way you break it down makes it make so much sense…

  • I have been watching your videos for a few hours today and you are a wonderful teacher! I had a question for you. What kind of tape should be on my hoop so that it gets a better grip on my bod/clothes. There isn’t any tape on it as of now. Have any suggestions?

  • Thank you so much for this!! I’ve been struggling with figuring out what to do after I bring it down to my knees.. you’ve opened up a wholllle new door for me.. (if i can get it fluid enough!)

  • I love your videos πŸ˜€ I think this was the first video i watched that got me into hoop dancing, i know i couldn’t do the move but just seeing that you could do that with a hula hoop or really anything other than hooping around the waist inspired me to want to try it and It kinda just went from there and i finally got to where i am now so i want to thank you for that. Also i love your outfit, it’s really cute.

  • Hi Safire! Your tutorials have helped me a lot! Thanks for being such a good teacher! I have a huge doubt, how do you keep the hoop spining at the middle of your legs using jeans or leggins? When Im using dresses or shorts I can leg hoop and shimmy up perfectly but when Im using jeans or leggins it just wont go up! Or it does but I look really funny… You lift it so gracefully while wearing jeans… Thanks for your amazing tutorials… πŸ˜‰

  • hi! very good tutorial
    but i have a some problems :S!
    I have tried to maintain the hula hoop on my waist (I’m learning hardly) but i cant!
    the hoop falls and I can’t maintain it long time, it is about the movement of hip or the weight of the hoop?

    I hope that you can help me πŸ™‚

  • Hey would you be able to make a video on how to get hoop from floor up to knees? I’ve seen circus hoopers do it and they sorta kick it up but I cant get the hang of it! Thanks. Keep up the great work. Ur an inspiration xxx

  • @StrawberryTix when I was learning to hoop at my waist I learned a valuable lesson. Size of the hoop is a major learning tool, the bigger the better(also heavier)! I used a HUGE hoop to start and downsized to about 11′ I use a 3/4inch tube I can’t remember the PSI tho. But that size and then the tape make it a good weight. once I master this size on my waist I’ll try a little smaller! (bigger means slower! so it helps you practice instead of looking like you are having a seizure :P)

  • @StrawberryTix OH also The movement of your hips when learning should be front to back (if you prefer) Or Side to side! (some think its a circular motion which to be honest its more of a 2 contact point not 4)AND once you can keep it up practice moving around(its never to early, that way you don’t become sooo used to standing still and focusing only on the hips)

  • Sweet! I had trouble with this ALL day! I just couldn’t get my hips to cooperate, but then all of a sudden…I did it! I think i let out a small squeal!!

  • @FireSandra Aaahhhh, Banyan pants are sadly NOT made for knee hooping πŸ™ Can’t knee hoop to save my life with them! Thanks for this tutorial, been trying to get it from my knees to waist for a while, hopefully this will be the epiphany I needed!

  • I have just started hooping and i love it, thanks for all the tutorials!!! If you learn anything new make sure to post it πŸ™‚ You are the best THANKS πŸ™‚

  • Your videos are super helpful. I just started about two weeks ago, maybe three, and I’ve got down waist/hip/chest hooping, shimmying from waist to chest, the arm and shoulder duckouts so now I’m working on knees. I can keep it going around my knees when I give it a shove placed on my knees already, but I’m only successful at dropping it from my waist to my knees about 50% of the time. Any tips?
