"Something as simple as a plastic circle inspired me to play and be active. It has been a creative outlet that effortlessly brings a smile and joy to my everyday life."

Our Goal


From the beginning, the goal of Kurrent Motion has been to share the awesomeness of the Hoop! 

To share hula hooping as a full body workout beyond traditional waist hooping. To promote a fun fitness for all ages, genders, and skill levels. 

Our Mission


To share a playful fitness experience that incorporates cardio, strength and skills in a safe and encouraging environment. To ensure everyone's success and promote a hoop practice beyond the class and create community.
