Angela Presnell

Founder

My name is Angela Presnell, or more commonly known as lilhoopgirl. I picked up my first hoop in 2016 after being intrigued by hoopers online. I was a freshman in college searching for something that I could invest my creativity into. By day two, I was hooked. After many odd glares and questions, I realized I deserved to take up space. And I happily did so with the help of my hoops. This movement would eventually form into confidence, personal comfort, and community. Now it’s time for me to share everything I have learned with you.

I have taught hoop workshops in the United States, The Netherlands, and Spain. During the pandemic, I taught online workshops to more than 600 students. Last year I had the honor to teach at Denver JAMboree, Spinsanity, and High Altitude Hoop Retreat.

Hula hooping has completely shaped my world. It has been what I have needed through self discoverment as a proud queer woman, a better ally to BIPOC, and understanding that what we act upon ripples into our community. Hula hooping consistently shows me that persistence is key, comfort is found through movement, and life is really just one big circle of learning. I know this is just the beginning for me. If you’re reading this, thank you. And if you’re curious about picking up a hula hoop, do it.

Thank you for one year of lilhoopgirl.com!

I hope you have loved learning hoop tutorials and have challenged yourself along the way. Remember, a hula hoop is a reflection of ourselves. If you haven’t picked up your hoop in a few weeks, or months, let this be your sign that it’s okay.

Life throws us curveballs and we will navigate them at our own speed. Just like hoop ruts, we go through life ruts. And just like a flow state, you will enter days that will feel exciting, and aligned to you. Never force anything that doesn’t feel right. The hoop will always be there for you when you are ready. If it feels right, pick it up without overthinking. For just one song.

I have put my heart and soul into this website and tutorials as it feels aligned with my purpose. So thank you for being here and wanting to grow your flow.
