London Hula-Hoopers

A childhood activity that you may or may not have mastered. Never mind if you didn’t make the hula-hoop gang at school, though – it’s not too late to learn.

Friendly, informal groups meet regularly across London for a calorie-burning, nostalgia-inducing hoop-whirling session.

Proponents of the art claim that as well as making you fit, hoop-work is also a form of meditation.

Thursdays, Oct 4-Dec 6, 2.45pm-4.15pm; Saturdays, Nov 3-Dec 8, 11.30am-12.30pm; drop-in classes Wednesdays, 7.30pm-8.30pm, £5
Hornsey, Enfield, Covent Garden*
