In this hula hoop tutorial, I explain how to do a continuous k roll which is also known as the continuous vertical chest roll. I love adding this hoop trick into my hoop dance flow because it adds a funky illusion that the hoop is rolling down my chest from my hands up above down to my receiving hand below.
You will find that the K Roll will help you practice your eye hand coordination plus give you a great arm workout! I have seen the k roll combined with hoop folds which looks incredible!
Pre hula hooping days, back in 2010 before settling down and having a family, I invested a lot of my time in hobbies and made sure that my spare time outside of work consisted of creative and fun activities. Not to mention now days I look back and realize just how much spare time I had compared to now raising a family, which gives me tremendous satisfaction and joy, however the days for taking up new hobbies or interests are gone for a few years. Having said that there is lots of fun in entertaining a toddler and engaging in what makes her giggle and getting to share in many fun kids activities.
I was living with my husband in a small one bedroom apartment by the beach in Dee Why on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Australia when during my lunch break at my work computer I somehow stumbled upon a YouTube Video of Shakti Sunfire performing hoop dance in this video with the Pyronauts at San Fransisco Decompression in 2009.

Have you spent time this summer spinning a Hula-Hoop around your waist or arm? Could you do it easily or was it difficult?
