Diana Lopez and BODYHOOPS 7:00 PM
Diana’s passion for hooping began during the summer of 2001, after having a surgery and temporarily having to refrain from strenuous activity for a few months. Hooping provided a wonderful way to move, smile and feel good which aided in the healing process. At the time, she was also a sixth grade teacher and after having integrated hooping into the morning curriculum for several weeks, she began to observe a difference in how the students related, and how they became more comfortable in their bodies as well as a noticeable difference in their receptivity to learning.
After ten years of elementary school teaching, she decided to createBodyHoops and take hooping out into the community and into the world. Her mission is to get people to experience the joy of movement and the importance of dance and playfulness. Currently, she is residing in Santa Fe, NM working part time as the Games and Movement Instructor at the Santa Fe Waldorf School and local fitness instructor teaching hula hoop fitness Classes and Instructor Trainings.. In addition to teaching hula hooping fitness, she holds specialty certificates and teaches weekly Zumba and Yoga classes. Certified Group Fitness Instructor with ACE (American Council on Exercise) and AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America) and she also developed the BodyHoops Fitness Curriculum which is also approved by ACE and AFAA.
