What inspired you to start your journey:
Thinking back on what may have sparked inspiration for my hooping journey is going to music festivals as a youngster with my parents. We went to a few festivals at Spirit of the Suwannee and that was when I first saw a hoop dancer. Fast forward to 2013, 18 year old me was biking around a small downtown arts & crafts festival when I spotted a hoop vendor. I was drawn to a large 34” Rasta taped hoop and rode all the way home with it on my bike. At the time I was physically and mentally going through a very trying period in my young adult life. I started shifting my energy towards hula hooping. I would go in my front yard in the sunshine and on-body hoop for hours, until I was full on sweating. The euphoria, excitement and curiosity that ignited from this hoop amazed me. It truly gave me a safe place to express myself freely, and encouraged me to get out of bed in the morning. As I continued going to music festivals as an adult, I felt so comfortable and confident with my hoop in hand. I fell in love with the community and the light that it radiated. Music also is a huge inspiration to me, moving my body in ways that the music makes me feel is so healing!
A little bit more about Jordyn:
Something that I am also passionate about is drawing. I am an artist that has been working towards developing a portfolio to one day become a tattoo artist. I love painting or drawing anything to do with nature(mushrooms, pine cones, plants). I live with my fiancé, Nick, in Colorado and we have an orange kitty named Leo and a golden retriever named June Bug -whom are our babies. I have always been called to find compassion for all living creatures big & small from horses, people, dogs, squirrels to insects! I spent 5 years being a Veterinary Technician and helped heal fur babies. My love language is making people an awesome spotify playlist. I’m an astrology lover and find a lot of clarity in understanding the universe around me. Water is where I feel the most at peace, I grew up swimming in the Florida springs, rivers and gulf. You can find me happiest while sewing, camping, creating, frolicking in the forest, hooping, swimming and smooching dogs noseys.

I flow with a fire hoop, fire fans and dragon staff. I will try any prop I can get my hands on! Each time I learn a trick it feels like I am conquering my fears and proving to myself I can do anything I practice at!
