It’s an Old Soul, but It’s Got a Young Heart. Part 4
Chapter 2 Part 5
By 2005, Jonathan Baxter taught his first hoop class at a yoga studio. Meanwhile, across the country in California, Gabriella Redding and friends had been inspired by a cirque performer Hoopnotica. By 2006, Hooppath, Jonathan Baxter’s curriculum and Hoopnotica, Gabriella Redding’s curriculum had rapidly gained in popularity thanks to their friends at hooping.org.
Hooppath, and Hoopnotica were soon to be joined by Christabel Zamor’s curriculum known as HoopGirl. Though each curriculum had their own view points -Hooppath seeming to focus on healing, Hoopnotica relying heavily on fitness and HoopGirl taking a whole body health approach, they were all narrowly the same. When it all boiled down to it, everyone was extremely passionate about the hoop, and this passion began an entire a community and culture one hoop at a time.
