Hooping ~ Movement Art and Mediative Fitness

IndyHoopers ~ Indianapolis, Indiana. 2007 – 2017

As there are infinite ways to interact with this prop. A hoop offers itself as a dance partner, a performance element, a meditation and movement tool and a fitness component.

Finding the hoop has been be described as a game changer. Everyone who calls themselves a Hooper has a remarkable story that begins with a plastic ring. Its a story of self discovery, fitness through play, healing, expression, community and personal growth. A journey to knowing oneself better though quiet focus and pushing past obstacles that you never imagined for yourself. IndyHoopers provided a varied, brilliant and experienced instruction for all levels of Hooping from 2007 to 2017. It provided the opportunity for a community to come together though workshops, classes, weekend retreats and jams.


My name is Lynn Spencer-Nelson. I have always been an artist, somehow.
I paint, photograph, sculpt and work to create jewelry, clothing and unique décor. And for ten years I coached hoopers and in Indy, performed and traveled the Midwest spreading the love of the hoop. I still organize workshops for traveling  instructors, but I have come to the conclusion that I need to take some time off from teaching. I love Hooping and art, but right now I am taking time to develop a sustainable income option. My hope is to return from a more balanced space and be able to offer more and help others.  I appreciate all the support and assistance that I have received.
 I founded IndyHoopers in 2007. I preformed, traveled and taught until 2017 within this small business of one. The excitement and passion to share hooping changed my life. This simple plastic ring gave a once shy and overly introverted creative the courage to push through those barriers in all aspects of life. As I watch the community grow I get to witness similar stories of tremendous strength sprouting from this unsuspecting space.
