I’ve hooped with Sarah for several years so I highly recommend anyone wanting to learn take any workshop she offers. She helped me a great deal with body rolls at her workshop in Arkansas at a festival called Old Growth – before I got dehydrated & had to take a break. (No such thing as brining too much water to a hoop jam.) I remember her telling me the first time she ever saw me hoop was at a Masdelux Park party and I was wearing heels. I don’t remember the heels but it was funny for her to tell me that she never knew I hooped then was suddenly out there seeing if I could do what she was doing. It was pure bliss. Being able to hoop at park with great music is a great way for me to bond with others without even talking. I’m excited that she will be hosting a hoop jam this Sunday south of downtown in Dallas.
This was a cool pic I took of her when she had a workshop with Caterina Suttin & Ciara Blossom. I know that Sarah had a great deal of love for hoop dance. She’s he one who created my poly pro hoops. Check out her Facebook page Passion in Motion for pictures from her last workshop.
This morning I went on my first outdoor morning walk/jog (what I like to call wogging) in a 5k fund raiser. I ended up being completely rushed as I stayed up late the night before and didn’t even have water.
The past two weeks I’ve been using the C25K app for Android so I’d be able to run for longer. Today I jogged 1 minute then walked 1 minute…not on a treadmill. I know that I’ll be doing my runs on trails instead of treadmills as it was much more harder. Plus, no water. I brought my family boxer on the trail as well & he was pulling me along towards the end.
I’m glad that I did this run in the morning. It was 8:00 AM and it wasn’t hot till the very end. I’m adapting to the heat as by afternoon it was 104ºF but in the morning it was 80ºF and felt intense when I was in the sun. Lucky for me most of the trail was shady under trees, mostly flat & that was part of the reason I decided to go this route. I also took advantage of water stops along the way. Afterwards, I spent several hours in a pool after a smoothie. Bliss! Wish I had taken pictures but I rarely get up at 7 AM on a Saturday so this was a great learning experience from my regular luxurious gym run.
As I keep training to be able to run a full solid 5k – outdoors – I’ll:
Hydrate before and DURING the run
Wear sunshades as the sun did come strong by 8:30 AM
Apply sunscreen on my face
Keep my runs in the morning, unless there is a heat/pollution warning
Wear loose clothing, my top was fitted so no breeze
Marawa the Amazing, 32 year old Australian said anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, can keep the hoop spinning but choosing the right size hoop is essential. (huff post) Size matter when it comes to the circle that you are using not only your hips, but your chest, legs and shoulders. I’ve found a top notch hoop maker in Dallas, TX whom is vending at the Mystic Festival this coming weekend. Hoops Ablaze has a great turn around time as I’ve had Izzy create a custom hoop for the Dallas Mardi Gras Parade this past March. Since then I’ve watched her grow as a Hoopnotica instructor and teach children, senior citizens and buff men in gyms. It’s wonderful to have a local hoop maker with such a strong passion and quick turn around time for hoops.

I personally have a lot of love for the support that Izzy has shown the Dallas hoop scene as I met her at SpinFest then have been able to fire hoop with her for my very time. Eventually she hosted Steve Bags (of The Hoop Hub) and Valentina Martin for one of the best workshops I’ve ever been to! A belly dance hoop fusion class then a poi hoops workshop. I look forward to more of her this coming year!
Funky and jackin’ mix from Jenn Johnson is a what she plays. The last time I heard her was at Myscheiva back in October. I kept wandering back into her camp when she was playing and would hoop till I needed to refill my water bottle. I’m looking forward to hearing her again.
I love getting comments about night time activity! What are you going to do tonight in Dallas?
≈ Comments Off on Buy this now: Hamonious Discord 039 Onium – Immix EP
It was announced from the Harmonious fb page that Onium would have an EP on the 8th. IT IS NOW OUT! I’m super excited about Onium as he focuses on his production to the point that I really just started bugging him about details. I’m a fan of the echoing, orphic percussion he has brought me this past year. I had to ask Stephen Moon how long he has been producing.
“I have only been into Dub Techno for about 2 years. I stumbled upon a mix, got hooked, then wrote/named Comastate, my first released dubby Techno tune, the night before John Walkers accident. I sat on it for months before sending it to Sean Anderson [at Hamonious Discord], it felt too weird to think about doing something with it at that time.”
Piped has a spot as it starts off with cavernous echoes which build up the beat. It’s like landing on a minimal dub planet and looking around. Each track feels like it’s a part of the next scene, as the percussive elements seamlessly come and go as filtered pads march the brain into a minimal dance. Sharing Light has the shimmering, trance-inducing effect that ends up become more of a mesmerizing dance floor experience.
Dark minimal techno dub engineered soundscapes with dance floor infused throbbing ends. I look forward to hearing Onium playing out more often as there is just not enough of this sound in Dallas.
Dancing is going to be one of the best ways to burn calories but dancing to funky, sexy house is the ultimate way. I found this today Miquel Migs will be in Dallas this weekend. I started listening to house exclusively around 2001 so this is going to be filled nostalgia for me. Tell me what you think of this. This is two hours worth of music! No excuses to be sitting there on an ever growing ass.
The first time I ever danced with Todd & Woni was at Club One New Year’s Eve, since then I’ve watched them become total hunks! It’s incredible how much they glow and how laid back they have become. Yes, they have zen. I know people usually put off going to yoga because don’t want to look silly, never done it before or have just got done paying all their bills so they can’t cover the drop in fee. So no more excuses! Woni is going to be teaching class this Sunday at 9 AM at The Trinity River Corridor Project. It will be on the Continental bridge, mats will be provided so bring a towel and water!
I’ve been able to do yoga with Woni at the Uptown Dallas Sunstone Yoga location and after getting busy with life, then doing 1 round of T25, I’m ready to get back into a yoga practice.Plus Leo Season is coming up so I have to look, feel AND *BE* my best Leo self. So thankful this class is in the morning and with lots of room so I can invite all my friends and family.
Do you practice yoga outdoor regularly?
I do practice outdoors but not as much as I should. Hopefully this weekend changes that.
What inspires your practice?
My inspiration comes from the endorphin rush I receive from my Asana practice! The emotions I witness myself as well as fellow practitioners go through within a sequence of postures.
On Sunday are you going to lead a sunstone yoga routine?
Ye,s I will be doing a fire (hatha) sequence. Sunstone is paying me for the hour so they get to select the sequence.
What was the outside cues that brought you to being a yoga instructor? Do you feel like yoga has a spiritual aspect for you? The outside ques came from my first class I took as a student, once I felt the adrenaline rush, endorphins etc…. I knew that this was my new drug! My healthy drug, and I want to make people feel good mentally and physically. Also the pay had a tiny influence. Lol! It is my church! Yes! When I’m not stable I can’t really teach. You just want to be a student and refill my spiritual cup. Ya know?
Does music play an important role in your personal yoga practice?
Yes, I love creating playlist for my yoga flow classes!My go to yogi tunes vary. Slow tunes currently Sam Smith, Sia, Sam Sparro…. faster mixes include some dj mixes of current with current artist like tune – yards and some old school stuff like dee-lite! Lol. I’m all over the spectrum.
Be sure to come out & invite your friends. There is no reason you shouldn’t make it, having a hang over is a lame reason to NOT be excellent to your body! *shakes finger*
“We’ve always held each other down no matter what,” she said of her older sister. “That’s something I’m drilling into [my son] Julez now. I think about all of those phases that I went through, and the ridicule and whatever that I experienced. And I can’t think of one time where I ever felt like I was going to break.”
It is annoying that people are still talking about Solange getting physical with her sister’s husband. As a passionate person, I know that eventually I’m going to end up getting into something dramatic with anyone that my siblings are married to. That is what sisters are for! Sure we get super pissed about a situation, hurtful things get said, someone calls someone a “broke bitch loser”, then someone says “I never want to see you again.” What? You NEVER got into a fight with your siblings significant other? Wait, you never even fought with your siblings?
Sounds boring, or maybe you were an only child? Either way: Sorry, that sounds depressing.
My brother’s all married incredibly colorful people. If any of my brothers need me to smack a little sense I don’t care where I am, sure I may rip my dress or look trashy but this my brother and I’m going to have their back TILL THE DAY I DIE. So I’m not saying that you should always beat someone if they look at your sibling funny but I do understand. I also understand, it is no one’s business but your own about what happened in our family.
