Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

For centuries the Whirling Dervishes have been using Sufi Whirling as a moving meditation and a way to truly loose themselves in worship ceremony aiming to reach the source of all perfection. This unique hoop class begins with an extended Sufi Whirling Meditation Warm-up. We then move to our hoops and look at the techniques used to allow Whirling Dervishes to spin for up to 10 hours a day and learn to apply these techniques to a hoopdance practice. Basic hoop spinning tricks explored and with these skills learn to extend time hoop-spinning without getting dizzy. This allows you to truly get lost in the spinning vortex of the hoop and transform your hoopdance into a powerful moving meditation. "We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust. The stars form a circle, and in the center we dance" ~Rumi
Class time devoted to lecture: 5-10 minutes
