Instructor & Founder
Laura is the Founder and Instructor at The Valley Hoopers. She started her hoop journey when a friend called Lucy posted on facebook about Hoop Classes. She had no idea what hooping was at the time but little did she know this moment would change her life forever. Lucy became her Hoop Mama and hooping became a part of her everyday life and she would carry her hoops around like they were her babies!!
Soon after her first encounter with hooping she left the UK for the sunny Dubai where she could not find any hooper's. This was a sad moment for her so she began to search the internet for fellow hooper's. After months and months of trying to find hooper's she discovered a newly founded group called Flowground where she became one of the new teachers. Here she gained her Hoop Teacher Certificate and taught many adults and children how to hoop. This was the perfect way for her to spread joy and happiness through using the hula hoop. She has also attended workshops by Lisa Lotties, Tiana Zoumer, Babz, Jennifer Wilson, Gail O'Brien and Emma Kenna making her a skilled hooper in her own rights.
Laura says "Hooping is somewhere I can be myself . It is a time where I can forget about what's going on in my daily life and I can be present and in the moment. The hoop allows me to play which brings out my creative side. The hoop energizes me, lifts my mood, helps me to release stress and makes me feel empowered. It is hard to write in words how much happiness a simple plastic hoop has brought into my life."
