Tutsday: Maghoops with Jozette Gordon

Happy Tutsday everyone! 

In this quick tutorial, we highlight the amazing Jozette Gordon. She shows us a mesmerizing and unique type of hoop called Maghoops.

Maghoops are a new and a magical way to play.

There are two magnets in each hoop.
Line up all three magnets in the hoops.

Begin by holding your hands onto the magnets, while gripping your fingers between the hoop.
An opening and closing fold are good for transitions.
Practice popping off the front hoop and back hoop, which gives you the ability to flip the hoops open and close.

To isolate, begin to lift up and trace the hoops around the center of the hoop. Add a flip for an extra oomph!

Try to open your hoops across your body and turn to your right or left. With the new plane, use the hoops to isolate around.

Maghoops require a lot of experimenting to bring out their magic.
