You and your youtube videos are the only reason I can do more than a few things with my hula hoop. If it wasn't for your videos I would still be lost and trying to find something to fill the void left in my heart from dance (lower back injury at the age of 18 devastated me). Thank you to the end of the universe and back for all the love and support you put into your videos and everything you do. Your beautiful soul has inspired me and many others; and I'm absolutely sure that you will continue to inspire and connect people via your love for hula hooping, your boundless energy, and your kind spirit.

Most of all I love your energy and vibe. I love that you focus on the health and spiritual benefits of hooping. I've had a lot of health issues and can't do a lot of traditional exercise. even yoga can be to strenuous. Hooping is perfect for my particular needs. You were the one who made me realize I didn't have to be "cool" to hoop. I realized I could find a deeper part of myself in the circle and that it wasn't all about performance or others' expectations, only me. Thank you!! I always give thanks to you in my mind when I hoop and think about your words, especially when I "mess up" or get out of flow. - Stacey ★★★★★

Your YouTube videos helped keep sane when working a crazy job in Spain. I absolutely love your style of teaching, I aspire to follow your footsteps and teach in NZ. - Lucy ★★★★★
