How to Do Hoopilates (Hula Hoop Pilates)

In this video, pilates instructor Jen Bleier teaches us some Hoopilates basics. If you think you can’t get a hoop up to save your life — think again. Bleier uses a handcrafted version by Brooklyn-based Circle Candy that’s heavier and wider than the standard — so it’s much easier to maneuver. Plus, you get a better workout. For more information about Hoopilates, go to hoopilatesnyc.com. To buy a Circle Candy hula hoop, go to circlecandy.com.
