At this new festival you can see me perform with hoops on stage and you can get your friends to try it out for themselves.


Get there early to join me on the main stage at 10:45 am. This is where I will invite people of all ages to come up and learn some basic hoop moves. If you have children bring them along! The majority of children love it and pick it up very quickly too.


Later at 12:15 pm join me at the Om Cafe for more gentle and creative hoop moves. This is the quiet area and I recommend it for teens and adults. You will be surprised at how good it feels.


Check out the program below for all the other performances and workshops available on the day.

There will be a wonderful atmosphere with so many lovely performers and healing practitioners in the one place.

I am able to offer a 50% DISCOUNT to the entry price if you email me [email protected]

The most entertaining workshop for team building.

When organising entertainment or a corporate workshop, it is very important to give your attendees a chance to get up and move around. This will increase their ability to absorb more information and it will boost their motivation.

With a hula hooping workshop they will get the usual benefits of fitness plus more. This type of movement brings laughter and activates many parts of the brain as well as body.  Learning circus tricks requires coordination of the left and right sides of the body. Our clients activate parts of their body that they hardly use when they are seated at a computer or table most of the day.

I just had a great night hooping at Maroubra Beach!

Posted by Ria Manolias on March 29, 2014 at 8:25 AM Comments comments (0)

I went by myself to the beach with my LED hoop, fire hoop and normal hoops. After a while some lovely girls joined in and we had a great time.  Eventually the adults hooped as well and they were suprised at how much easier it is with proper adult size and weighted hoops.

Some other people joined in as well and we had a fantastic evening. We talked about the nightlife in the area and how important community is. They video taped me hooping with fire so I would love it if they send me a link to it.

Here's the link to the girls hooping tonight, enjoy! http://youtu.be/ScpCslYQX0w

Hoopy Happenings 2014

Posted by Ria Manolias on March 26, 2014 at 6:35 AM Comments comments (0)

I just came back from a fantastic hula hoop retreat in Sydney with international hoop teachers. We had Brecken Rivara, Tiana Zoumer, Kenna Hoops and Angie Mack at the annual Hoopy Happenings event.

I am so excited to share with my hoop students plenty of new hooping tricks and tips including balancing, twins, floor and butt hooping! We hooped for six hours a day but the yoga really helped our bodies to cope.

The hooping community is so friendly, fun and creative and we hope you will join us!
