This hula hoop trick makes a great way to create the illusion the hoop is spinning around your hand. It is a great hoop move to transition into on body hooping or off body hooping as you are able to move straight into vertical or horizontal plane. I recommend practicing in balancing the hoop on your palm along with taking these steps to performing the palm spin. Here we go from vertical hand hooping straight onto an open palm spin. You can purchase dance hoops here handmade by myself.

If you’re wondering whether to buy a hula hoop from Maria then take my advice and DO IT!! Maria is a total sweetheart and her hoops are a work of art. I adore mine, I want ten more. It’s sparkly and pretty and sturdy and light and you definitely should purchase your hoop from her.
Most incredible purchase! The colours and pattern it is like the ocean is swirling around while playing. This was a gift for my partners birthday and she absolutely adores her new hoop. Thanks so much you are a talented artist creating beauty that makes people smile. A.
Maria make the most incredible travelling hoops, not only functional but absolutely beautiful and perfectly weighted. I recently travelled for 7 weeks overseas and whilst on tour, I assembled my hoop at each destination in just 60 seconds and was ready for my hooping workout, what a great way to keep fit whilst eating & drinking your way around europe, in fact I returned home 2kgs lighter, thanks Maria ��
I bought my first 2 hoops from this shop and are super happy with the purchase! I have bought a couple more hoops since then but love my HoopsAlive hoops and use them all of the time! There was a shipping issue but it was sorted ASAP and all issues were resolved in a speedy and pleasant matter :)
