Kikowaena - Hooping in Paradise

Kikowaena means "center of the circle" in Hawaiian. What an appropriate phrase to describe the beauty that hooping has brought into my life. We are building a movement and building a brand here in Honolulu, so hopefully you will start seeing more hooping on Oahu! This blog was made to promote our hooping, but also to spread beautiful photos and videos of other hoopers around the world.

I love this shot of Kiki, she’s illuminated by the poi by her hip.  It’s such a simple shot, but I just love it. Zen Panda’s birthday party, Baldwin beach, Paia, Maui, Hawaii. Photo by Zen Panda

i-feel-ya-psychedelia: Apprentice hooper here. You are magical and you make my heart heavy with joy. I'm so glad you exist. That hooping poem was awesome and inspiring at the least. Thanks.

Tumblr won’t tell me when this was sent, but I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner… Thank you! I love hearing kind words, and I can only hope I further inspire my fellow circle addicts, or help foster new ones.

Yeah, I’m reblogging myself. Because it’s just that good.

I’ve posted this quote before but just found it again recently. And whoa, it’s good.

..kikowaena.. Center of the circle

"The circle is perhaps the most ancient of mystical symbols and the most universal of all dances. It is the earth and the sun in eternal movement, an unbroken, unbent line symbolizing continuity and eternity. The circle dance represents wholeness. The dance brings life full circle.” - Iris J. Stewart, Sacred Woman, Sacred Dance

My lady and I are like… 

This is adorable! I think I would say it applies to me and Steve.

It’s been a minute since I’ve been mini hooping, this is actually an old video and my poi hoop skills are much better since taking up actual poi spinning. But regardless, I couldn’t pass up making a video to celebrate 5 years using this glorious golden hour footage.
