Karrie Blackburn, Winnipeg’s “Hoop Lady”, founder of Kurrent Motion Hoops, and president of the Winnipeg Circus Club, first discover hooping during the summer of 2009. What began as a weight loss journey quickly grew into an obsession! Her passion for the hoop took her around the world to further develop her skills at conventions and retreats from Ireland to Bali. It was during that time when she was inspired to become an instructor herself. Since teaching her first class in Palmerston North New Zealand in March 2014, Karrie has introduced tens of thousands to the wonderment of the hoop.
