"Michele really explains each move by breaking it down step by step. What I enjoyed most is how she shows you how to put the moves into flow by giving you a routine which uses the moves within the course. Michele's courses are so great because you are able to tell she puts her heart and soul into making a wonderful learning experience for us."

I will be your instructor throughout this journey as we take your hoop dance practice to the next level. We will flow through many intermediate and advanced hoop dance moves and techniques while engaging your senses and manifesting purposeful movement.
In a sense this course builds off of my Beginner’s Online Guide to Hoop Dance Course as far as skill level and progression, but this course also takes on a very different focus. Once you have mastered the foundational moves to hoop dance and you’re able to get into more of a flow in your practice there are SO many different directions you can go with your hoop from there. I want to help you develop and embrace your own unique progression and hoop goals.
So, my focus for this course is to teach you a variety of new fun hoop tricks to play with but also provide you with the tools and incentive to further expand upon your flow and teach you how to start creating your own combos, transitions and individualized style of flow. In doing this we will explore bringing mindfulness into your practice, fully harnessing your creativity, and giving your hoop flow that wow factor.
This course is broken down into 4 sections.
In my lessons as we harness the meditative qualities of hooping I will take you on an adventure with me through the peaceful landscapes of nature. Nature can be a powerful teacher and healer as can the hoop.
You will walk away from this course with more skills, drive, enrichment, and satisfaction within your hoop practice. You will be equipped to thrive in your hoop journey with a positive energy and a purposeful mindset.

She is so kind and open and very responsive of any questions we might have! She goes above and beyond for us. She is wonderful at breaking the tricks down in steps, incorporating them into flow, and finding how to get in and out of them. I am so stoked to see what she has in store for us next!"

I'm Michele McCoy and I'm the founder of Autumn Flow. When I discovered hoop dance I instantly fell in love with it. As a new mom at the time I was in search of a fun and different form of exercise that I could do from the convenience of my home and I initially started hooping for the health and fitness aspects of it. I started making my own beginner hoops, navigating through online tutorials and practiced everyday.
However hoop dance became so much more to me than that. It became my own creative form of self expression and stress relief. It deepened my mind body connection and became my moving meditation. It boosted my confidence and helped me to create a healthy active lifestyle. It ultimately gave me a total self transformation and taught me the art of practice, patience and perseverance. And as I developed a strong passion for the hoop I also felt called and inspired to share it and encourage others to discover the immense benefits of hoop dance.
I got connected in the hooping community, attending workshops, and teaching beginner hoop dance courses at a local dance institute. Hooping has brought me so many incredible opportunities and I'm still always learning from my sacred circle. I am driven by my creativity and compassion for people and combining the two to bring the joy of hoop dance into the lives of others gives me so much happiness.
