Emma Brown
Emma started hooping in 2010 when one of her good friends fire hooped at her wedding, and then gave her a hula hoop for a wedding present. She couldn't have guessed then what a life-altering wedding present it was! She enjoyed the challenge the hoop presented and the gratification she felt after successfully learning something new. She loved the way the hoop taught her how to move her body and expand her limits to discover freedom in movement.
