Earth Hoops have the adult beginner adult in mind. We want you to pick up your hoop every day to enjoy your practice. We have found through 15 years of teaching and selling hoops that beginner adults will prefer this size and weight to get themselves started in their first 6 months of practice.
Weight: Earth Hoops are the slightly heavier and largest sizes available in our shop. Weight is approximately 12 oz (340 g).
Plastic-type 7/8″ O.D. HDPE: Outer diameter of the plastic tube is 7/8″. Wall is 1/16″. The plastic-type is High-Density Polyethylene, a plastic that offers a perfect amount of rigidity and flex and just the right amount of weight for learning beginner hoop dance moves. This plastic is highly durable.
Size for hoop: is measured in inches and refers to the full assembled outer diameter size. Most average size adult beginners will enjoy a 40″. See the size chart in the FAQ for size recommendations.
Dimensions in the ‘additional information’ tab refer to size when the hoop is coiled down for shipping.
The travel hoop option easily assembles and disassembles with push-button connectors into 6 sections of about 20-24 inches each and fits nicely in a yoga mat bag. This is a great option for taking your hoop on public transportation or on your bike.
Many beginners like to have both an Earth hoop for on-body moves and an Air Hoop for off body move. Shipping for 2 hoops is the same as for 1.
