I joined one of the HoopLovin Beginner's Hoop Dance courses which Amy taught. Although i really enjoyed the classes, my energy at the time was very low as I was having severe anxiety issues. I loved the class but would feel so ill with anxiety just before going and it was a push for me to go. I didn't complete the course in the end because of my anxiety but in hindsight that really didn't matter...
When sharing with Amy why I was having trouble attending, I explained some of my anxiety issues and she actually took the time to come and visit me at my home. We did some EFT together as Amy is a practitioner and I was able to use these anxiety reducing techniques even after Amy left.
Even though I didn't complete the course, a seed was planted in me from the first class which allowed me to empower myself and use self-help techniques as well as have support from others. These combined enabled me to overcome my anxieties.
I now love to be outside in my garden hooping even in view of the neighbours and anyone else who cares to see me strutting my hooping stuff! I looooove it! I am free, I feel free, I am me!!
I have a snapshot in my head of the sun going down over the top of a sunflower in my garden, and my hoop whizzing around, glistening in the sun. It is bliss!!
Thank you Amy. Your unconditional caring and amazing classes helped change my life!
