Elaina is our free-spirited sponsor from Illinois. Going to a very small high school (like 500 people total) was difficult at times for a gal with such an open minded demeanor and thirst for excitement. She discovered hooping as a junior and immediately knew she needed to pursue the sacred circle. Hooping has helped her to find herself by also opening her mind to yoga, meditation, and crystal healing. She has and continues to inspire friends and acquaintances to get involved in flow arts and hopes to move someplace warm and welcoming to spread the hoop love and enjoy her passionate hobby and lifestyle free of judgment. Oh and so far on her hoop journey she has performed with a local band in her area AND has been featured in a music video with Futuristic! How cool is that!! Follow Elaina on Instagram @bitchweeed
Krista is our big hearted busy-bee sponsor from Ohio. On top of raising a beautiful little girl, and working full time with her family business making tubes/rafts for water parks, she is also an animal rescuer! She is the foster coordinator for Josephs Legacy (josephslegacyrescue.org) ….I see it all the time on Facebook how involved she is with re-homing rescued pets and such. She has three dogs of her own too! It’s hard to believe that she has time to hoop as busy as she is, but not only does she hoop, she is also highly involved in the social media hooping community by being administrator of three popular Facebook groups (Infinite Circles Community, A Hooper’s Closet, and F/H/C Clothescycle). She enjoys hooping with a 36” 3/4” polypro hoop, and prefers being on the other end of the camera as the photographer versus taking videos of herself.

Kiani is our raving west coast sponsor. She was born and raised on the big island of Hawaii, endured high school in Southern Oregon, and then moved to sunny California. It was on a beach in Cali in May of 2014 where she was first handed a hoop by an acquaintance that she never saw again….hoops on the other hand became a regular part of her life from then on! She is very passionate about hooping and enjoys spreading the love by performing and teaching others in her community. Her favorite hoops to use are 27” id 5/8” polypro hoops.

Juliette is our lovely sponsor from Missouri. She is a fur baby mom to a kitty, a dog, and a hedgehog and works at Goodwill!! When she is not hooping or working she likes photography and crafting. She was first introduced to hooping at a party and struggled to keep it up. Her husband bought her her own first hoop (super big 40”PE hoop) on 11/16/14 and still remains very supportive of her hooping passion. She has been hooping ever since… only now she uses a 30” HDPE hoop. Follow Juliette on IG @HOOPLIETTE_THE_HOOPER

Kat is our fun and funky sponsor from Michigan. Since she started hooping over 2 years ago her flow has grown to many other props- (poi, Leviwand, contact juggling, multihoop, buugeng, and flowersticks) She quotes “The more I learn with one, the more I discover with the others. It’s all connected! That’s what I love so much about the flow arts. There’s always room to learn more, to grow, and to share. Flow has also helped me immensely in my journey of self discovery and self love. I’ve never felt more comfortable in myself as I do in my hoop.”

Anna is our show-stopper sponsor from Roselle Park, New Jersey. Although she has only been performing with a hoop for a little over a year she is no stranger to the stage. She started in musical theater when she was 8 years old. From that she also went on to do dance, gymnastics and competitive cheerleading for many years. When she hoops she incorporate everything she has learned in her training from over the years. She looks to inspire others and bring others joy from such a simple circle. She quotes, “The hoop to me is more than just a hobby or passion, it is a guide. A guide that has shown me how to channel energy into other areas of my life. Even though sometimes it may be difficult to get through certain things, I will always have my hoop.”
