Here, we are exploring Isolations. An isolation is an optical illusion where it appears as though the hoop is floating in space. It's very different than hand hooping. Think of isolations as big arm movements/ big arm circles whereas hand hooping is small, tight movement.
Quick tips: Think of the hoop as a clock. The 6 o'clock position is our resting spot. Hold on with a tight grip and aim to keep yourself centered in the hoop as you move your arm. The isolation should be framing you. Don't let the hoop fall below your vision line. The way to accomplish this is move your arm (strong hold, straight arm) until you can't go up any farther. Then, open up your hand so that the hoop rolls over the back of it. This will cause you to perform a grip change. Close the hand in on the other side and then push back down to the 6 o'clock position.
