I'm Michele McCoy, the Founder of Autumn Flow.
When I discovered hoop dance I instantly fell in love with it. As a new mom at the time I was in search of a fun and different form of exercise that I could do from the convenience of my home and I initially started hooping for the health and fitness aspects of it. I started making my own beginner hoops, navigating through online tutorials and practiced everyday.
However hoop dance became so much more to me than that. It became my own creative form of self-expression and stress relief. It deepened my mind body connection and became my moving meditation. It boosted my confidence and helped me to create a
healthy active lifestyle.
It ultimately gave me a total self-transformation and taught me the art of practice, patience and perseverance. And as I developed a strong passion for the hoop I also felt called and inspired to share it and encourage others to discover the immense benefits of hoop dance. So I got connected in the hooping community, attending workshops, and teaching beginner hoop dance courses at a local dance institute.
Hooping has brought me so many incredible opportunities and I'm still always learning from my sacred circle. I am driven by my creativity and compassion for people and combining the two to bring the joy of hoop dance into the lives of others gives me so much happiness.
In addition to hoop dance I love to explore and I am blessed to live in an area that is surrounded by nature's beautiful countryside where I am constantly going on adventures with my sweet little family and my hoops. I have been married to an incredible man and my best friend for five years and we have two children. I'm a stay-at-home-mom to our two little boys who are four and two and full of energy and cuteness. It is my greatest goal to be the best wife and mother that I can be while also being true to myself and pursuing my love for the hoop.
