The In-Depth Hoop Intensive on the Big Island was facilitated by Shakti Sunfire and Luna Breeze. These two sisters (yes, by blood) are both incredible hoopers and teachers. This gathering was particularly focused on advanced technique and conditioning, thankfully we had a hot tub and sauna to soak our muscles in! I knew many of the attendees from The Spin Summit in Colorado, Hoopcamp in Santa Cruz, and Sacred Circularities in Bali, all which I was photographing at. It brings me so much joy being around this community, and we had a blast on the Big Island. A hike to see the lava flowing into the ocean (lava party!), Kona coffee, sunrise photo missions, Kalani cruising and pool time, dancing our booties off, daily morning yoga, organic and local meals, and a variety of incredible classes that took us to whole new levels.
I am filled with gratitude to capture the magic that took place. Thank you Shakti & Luna, all my hoop sisters (and Jeremiah!), and the Big Island. I will be back!
