In2hula is working in collaboration with the Heart Foundation of New Zealand to provide a hula hoop based physical activity programme for early learning services and centres.

This programme is called Hoop with Heart: Kia Ngākau Pīrori.

The Hoop with Heart programme is designed to fit with the Heart Foundation NZ Healthy Heart Award, and the New Zealand Ministry of Education’s early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki.

However, the programme is suitable for use in any early childhood setting around the world and is available in a digital format for early childhood education providers outside of the Canterbury area.

It’s a workout routine that’s FUN & gets RESULTS!

Hula hooping fitness classesYou can do almost anything with a hula hoop: your imagination is the limit. Hooping is no longer a thing of the past.  It has made a popular come-back simply because it’s fun and provides a workout routine that gets results.

Have fun and lose weight learning to hula hoop in our classes. Join our positive and caring community of hoopers to experience the difference In2hula has to offer you.

You will receive more one-on-one attention because of our smaller class numbers.  We take the time to really listen to each person’s individual needs. This is not about blasting out a fitness class with as many attendees as possible. Our classes are gentle on the body and generally injury free!
