Hooping For Beginners – A Fun Way To Move Your Body

I wanted to share one of my new favorite pass times.  I introduce to you…hooping! It’s a really cheap, easy, and fun way to move your body and create visual art.  You can get LED hoops with cool LED lights on them, and if you’re a crazy person like me, you’ll work your way up to a fire hoop.  Yes, that’s right.  A hoop of fire that you spin around. I know, I know.  It sounds crazy.  I’ll show you a video after the tutorial that shows how it can be done safely.  You can get a really cheap hoop at your local dollar store to practice with to see if you like it and if you want a bigger hoop that is for adults you can order them online or find them locally. Fire hoops are made specifically for safety and I do not encourage you to attempt to make your own fire hoop.  Be safe and have fun!

Because painting, sculpture, and music are more difficult to counterfeit than philosophy, it was necessary to transform and support Jewish modern “art” with philosophy in order to make the naive goyim accept it as genuine.
