Level 1 Certified Mentor
Trish has been teaching fitness for more than 20 years, but was introduced to hooping in 2007 and a new obsession began. She loves the hoop for its simplicity and complexity, its challenges and rewards, and the flow and expression that is possible with the hoop as a dance partner. She brings an enthusiasm for people, hooping and teaching to her classes in Ottawa (Ontario, CANADA), as well as a knack for detail and many years of teaching experience to her classes and workshops for children, teens & adults.
She has worked hard to build the hoop community in Ottawa by offering free bi-weekly hoop jams, organizing workshops by local and visiting presenters (including Shakti Sunfire, Spiral, Rich Porter, Ann Humphreys, Rebecca (Beka) Halls and more), and events like the The Hooping Life Ottawa celebration.
Trish is a passionate student: in addition to taking classes and workshops, she has furthered her hoop education by attending many hoop workshops (Rayna McInturf, Baxter and more) and retreats including Hoop Convergence and Return to Roots, as well as Shakti Sunfire's "The Pulse of the Radiant Feminine Heart" retreat in Hawaii in January 2012 which included the Hoop Revolution Teacher Training with Anah & Rayna.
