My attendance at the Southern Oregon hoop retreat was absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough about how positive my entire experience was from start to finish. The instructors were so patient, kind, and knowledgeable and are gifted in teaching the art of hooping to all levels. There were other various options of classes to partake in as well, such as yoga and chakra dance. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the accommodations were so comfortable and welcoming. The meals provided were all deliciously homemade and healthy. Em Robbins does a phenomenal job of hosting this wonderful retreat. I look forward to attending the next one.
What a joy it was to attend the Coastal Hoop Flow 2019 Retreat. It was a weekend filled with community, healing, nature, passion, and lots and lots of hooping. I finally unlocked a trick that had eluded me for years. The instructors were amazing, the food was healthy and delicious, the retreat grounds were gorgeous, and the people were absolutely wonderful. No doubt I will be attending again.
The 2019 Southern OR Coastal Hoop Retreat exceeded my expectations and then some. As a beginner hooper, I enrolled with the intention of investing in sharpening my skills and finding my flow. I was also drawn into the gorgeous pictures of the tranquil venue and its dreamy backdrop. What I was blessed with, in turn, was a true understanding of the term “sacred circle.”
Being shy and introverted, I was pretty nervous about fitting in and making new acquaintances. As soon as I arrived, however, all of my fears and apprehensions melted away thanks to the warm welcome and positive, feminine energy of the incredible instructors, hostess, and hoopers in attendance. Feeling included while focusing on my personal growth helped to make each hoop session, yoga class, nature walk, and nourishing meal an incredibly memorable, as well as spiritual experience. Collectively, the 2019 Southern Coastal Hoop Retreat felt like my formal initiation into the hooping community, and I cannot wait to return in 2020.

It is one of my favorites things! I love taking complex hoop techniques and breaking them down into steps that are accessible to anyone.”
