Start by hula hooping around your body using your hands to carry the hoop in an orbit around your body. Then you are going to place the hoop on your ankle. If you are hooping counter clockwise, then place the hoop on your left ankle, if you are hooping clockwise, use your right ankle. Once the hoop is hooked on your ankle, sweep your leg around behind your body and over to its opposite side. As the hoop come over to the opposite side of your body and before it hits your back, grab the hoop off your ankle and resume the body orbit.
