He is an innovative and multi-disciplined performer who has a strong passion for circus in all it’s forms – but just at the moment you’re unlikely to find him anywhere other than inside a hoop!

Sharing her magic in both performance and workshops is her passion and drive.

Fer Ruz, Majo Baldenebro & Janelly Haros

FerJanelly & Majo
are happy to host this year's Summer Hooping Mexico

 

FER, JANELLY and majo MET five YEARS AGO AT A HOOPNOTICA CERTIFICATION IN MEXICO CITY. THEY BECAME FRIENDS AND TALKED A LOT ABOUT HOOP RETREATS AROUND THE WORLD, AND HOW THERE WAS NO SUCH THING IN MEXICO.

LIKE MANY GREAT THINGS, SHMX STARTED AS AN IDEA! AN IDEA TO BRING HOOP RETREATS AND INTERNATIONAL HOOP STARS TO MEXICO, SO THAT PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE, AND PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE WORLD, COULD GET TO EXPERIENCE AN AMAZING WEEK FULL OF LEARNING, FUN AND EXPLORING IN MEXICO.

AFTER THINKING IT THROUGH AND ADVENTURING BRAVELY, THE PROCESS TO CREATE THE FIRST EVER MEXICAN HOOP RETREAT BEGAN!

NOW WE ARE SO PLEASED AND GRATEFUL TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS IS OUR fifth YEAR HOLDING THIS RETREAT FOR HOOPERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. AND WE LOVE EVERY SECOND ABOUT IT!

HOOP Y FIESTA LIKE THERE IS NO "MAÑANA".

 

 

Fer Ruz

It may have started as a hobby, but Fer now eats, sleeps and breathes hooping. Four years after entering this world, what she loves most about hooping is the way it brings people together, opens your brain to new experiences and connects the mind, body and soul in a way no other discipline does. Always eager to connect with and help other people, she believes that few things give you the feeling of accomplishment as learning a new trick or meeting a fellow hooper for the first time. For her, hooping, like life, is an act of passion.

FER IS A HOOP FLOW AND HOOP FIT HOOPNOTICA CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR, AND HAS BEEN TEACHING FOR OVER 5 YEARS AT GYMS, SCHOOLS, FESTIVALS, WANDERLUST, NON-PROFITS, AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND PRIVATE LESSONS. 

AS WELL AS PERFORMING FOR SEVERAL CORPORATE EVENTS, PRIVATE PARTIES, AND FOR NON-PROFITS. 

Majo Baldenebro

MAJO is a hoop fit hoopnotica certified instructor, a hoop school that is recognized by AFAA (ATHLETICS AND FITNESS ASOCIATION OF AMERICA).

she has more than five years of experience as a yoga instructor as well.

majo loves being in contact with her body, and she does that through different disciplines, that permit her  to explore her essence.

she enjoys dancing with her hoop to the rhythm of different types of music. 

 

Janelly Haros

She is a Hoopnotica HoopFit and HoopFlow certified instructor and she is looking forward to be even more involved in these whole hula hoop world, getting to know new people, their culture, and hooping styles. She is a passionate lover of Mexican culture, so she includes it in her hooping routine. Mexico, hooping, and music takes her back to her happy place.
