"Jo took us through everything we needed to know about teaching and running a business."

Christine Hulagran

"I chose to do my teacher training with Jo because I liked what I’d seen of her teaching style and I thought she looked friendly... and yes she really is! Before I started the training I was worried about being older than most hoop teachers, but Jo showed us that we all had something unique to offer, and that our individuality was a strength. I loved how well structured the course was, and how Jo took us through everything we needed to know about teaching and running a business. Since training with Jo I have taught Beginners in my local area, and taught lovely hoopers from all around the world via the magic of Zoom!"

Hi, I'm Jo Mondy - professional hula hooper and spreader of joy!



But in 2007, I was constantly in pain and hating my job 

Actually, I didn’t hate the job itself, but my chronic illness made sitting at a desk in front of a computer agony. I was also suffering quite badly from anxiety, low self-worth and a terrible body image. Basically, I felt trapped. I knew something needed to shift but I had no idea how.

Then I found hula hooping and life changed 

My best friend started going to a hula hoop class and I plucked up the courage to go with her. Even though I struggled to waist hoop (for weeks!), I quickly became addicted to learning hoop tricks.

Taking one my very first hoop classes in 2007As the months went by, I fell more deeply in love with hooping. My body became stronger and started to feel more comfortable moving it in new ways without being so self-critical. 

In 2010, I left Australia to start a new life in England, and I desperately wanted to share my joy and hoop passion with other people. I made the decision to completely change career paths and set up my first hoop class in Brighton. 


Now I have the best job in the world! 

Today I earn my living by making people happy! I regularly get messages from students telling me that I’ve changed their life by giving them the confidence to move their body and bring more joy into their every day. 

And, because I’m my own boss, I get to choose when and how I want to work - so no more hours chained to a desk! My chronic illness doesn’t define me anymore and I get to set my own hours - so I can spend more time with my 3-year-old son while he is still little.


I wish someone had held my hand along the way!

Today I run a thriving and successful business but, I’ll be completely honest with you, the first few years were a slog. I have no background in business and I made so many (sometimes costly) mistakes. I also struggled with the overwhelm and isolation of self-employment, and there were a few times where I almost gave up. 

Thankfully my passion for hula hooping kept me going. But I don’t want anyone to make the same mistakes I did. So I created my LiveLoveHoop teacher training which has so far certified 300+ hula hoopers and helped them create joyful and unique hoop businesses around the world.

Imagine

In just a few months, you could be spreading the joy of hooping and making money doing it!

"You will learn things about being a hoop teacher you didn’t know you needed to know!"

Dionne Ward

"If you want to take your hooping to another level, have your own business or use it as an extension to what you already do - I cannot recommend Jo's course highly enough. Jo is warm and friendly with a brilliant business mind! She gently encouraged us to face our fears and we were all so supportive of each other. I love that she included all the legal and practical matters to consider - you will learn things about being a hoop teacher you didn’t know you needed to know! And you will get to connect with other hoopers from all over the world who you will also learn from. Since the training I have been a weekly hoop teacher at a local gym, have trained people on a 121 basis at home and ran workshops at festivals, which brings me huge joy."

The LiveLoveHoop Teacher Training course is for:

  • Hoopers who want to make money doing a job they are passionate about

  • Hoopers who want to go deeper into their practice (and make cash to support their hoop addiction 🤣)

  • Hoopers who want the freedom to teach in their own style and don't want to be a part of a franchise

  • Fitness professionals who want to add a new string to their bow

  • School teachers who want to add some fun to their classes

  • Care or disability workers who want a new way to connect with their clients

  • Anyone who wants to share the joy of hooping with others!

"The course made me feel that everything is possible"

Victoria Briggs

"The reason I chose Jo’s teacher training over any other was that I love her upbeat style and that she always looks like she is enjoying teaching. She is genuinely excited by her students progress which fits closely with my own values as a primary school teacher.  My biggest worry before the training was that I had no previous experience of business - for example the legalities involved, insurance and tax requirements. But now I feel like I have a really solid grounding in what is required. Completing the course online meant I could revisit the videos at my own pace to ensure I understood fully. The course made me feel that everything is possible. Jo helps you to dream big and offers encouragement at every stage. Challenging issues such as undercutting, competition, inclusion and diversity are raised and addressed in sensitive ways- these are the conversations we all need to be having. Mostly, I loved that it made me feel capable, confident and excited to be starting a new circus journey. "

But am I good enough to teach hoop?


I’ve been running my hoop teacher training program since 2010 and this is the most common question I get. 

Even people who have been hooping for years are worried they haven’t got “enough” tricks. 

Let me reassure you. If you have a passion for hooping (which, since you’re reading this, I’m pretty sure you do), and the drive to complete my teacher training course, then you ARE good enough! 

In this course I walk you through everything step-by-step and build up your knowledge and skillset week by week, so you don’t feel overwhelmed along the way. 

Your job is to go all-in with me and commit to doing the work in the course!

 (Ideally you will have been hooping for at least 6 months before starting, so you have a grounding in the basics, but in the past, I’ve had people join who could only waist hoop, and they excelled!)

"Before the training, my biggest worry was that I am not a natural public speaker...and that I would find it difficult breaking down tricks"

See Ying Yip

"I chose Jo’s teacher training programme over other programmes because Jo and her programme are both very well-known in the hoop teaching community. From experience, I also know that Jo is a great teacher, and the programme also came highly recommended to me by other hoopers. Before the training, my biggest worry was that because I am not a natural public speaker, I would get very nervous when speaking upfront, especially in front of a large group. Another worry was that I would find it difficult breaking down tricks. I realised that I did not need to worry at all! Jo’s programme helped me with all these problems, and put my mind at ease. Since completing Jo’s teacher training, I have gone on to teach my own workshops, and taught at international hoop events and juggling conventions. It also gave me courage to start performing."

"I have already made enough money to cover the cost of the course plus extra!"

Rachael Rathbone (HulaDaze)

"What I loved most about this teacher training was the way Jo broke down the teaching process and made it really easy to understand. I also liked that you could go through the course at your own pace and skip back to sections if needed. I was a bit worried before the training was that I wouldn't be as good as the other students - but now I am so confident with teaching a class and I am having lots of success with my own students. I have zoom courses and one-to-one sessions fully booked and have already made enough money to cover the cost of the course plus extra."

"Since taking this teacher training my life changed!"

Helen Bartholomew (Hel's Heavenly Hoops)

"I chose Jo's training because I knew she is a great hoop teacher and I felt inspired by her & confident in her. My biggest worry was that my own hooping ability wouldn't be good enough. BUT since taking this teacher training my life changed! I gave up my full time accountancy job & went part time to set up my hoop business and teach classes, hen parties and workshops. 5 years later I moved to Jersey and everything I learned through this course helped me build a new hoop community in just a year. I started hooping in my 40s and now at 55 I am grateful to have a successful fun hoop business sharing the joy and benefits of hooping. Thanks to Jo, my hoop mama! If you don't think you're ready to teach hooping you're wrong. If you can hoop and want to teach then go for it."

"The joy of seeing someone nail a move you've just taught them is the most amazing feeling in the world!"

Tracy Williams (Totally Hooplass)

"I never actually intended to start teaching hoop - I purely took the course as an extension of my own learning. But…the teacher training course was the best thing I did! Jo’s style of teaching it is relaxed which instantly puts you at ease. It covers everything from breaking down moves to the wording you use right through to licenses/insurances and all the nitty gritty you need. I’m not in this to make money but what I earn pays for my hobby totally. If I want a new hoop or to go on a course I can. I’ve also met some amazing students who have since become lovely friends. The joy of seeing someone nail a move you’ve just taught them is the most amazing feeling in the world!"

Meet your teacher - Jo Mondy

Jo Mondy is an internationally renowned hula hooper who has taught thousands of people to hoop all around the world. 

She first picked up a hoop in 2007 - at a class on Bondi beach in Sydney - and quickly got addicted to the joy of learning tricks. 

She found herself getting stronger and more toned, plus, as someone who had always struggled with body image, hulahooping became a beautiful way for Jo to connect with herself and enjoy movement in a non-judgemental way. 

When she moved to to the UK in 2010, she built a strong and vibrant hooping community in Brighton and then went on to tour the world teaching at many major hoop events such as Hoop Camp (USA), GHC (Germany), SWhoop (UK), RendezVoup (France). She also started her own successful hoop event, Brighton Flow Fest which ran bianually for 9 years.

In 2019 Jo set up her online hooping classes and her lessons have been downloaded 3000+ times and featured on the front page of the Guardian and the BBC. Her popular YouTube tutorials have 200k views. 

Jo's teacher training program started in 2011 and has since certified over 300 hoopers, with many going on to launch successful and profitable hoop businesses as a result. 

Jo is always up for fun new activities and she loves nothing more than to go paddle boarding on a sunny day at her local beach in Worthing with her husband Andy and their 3 year old son, Jesse.

FAQ

  • What are the dates and times for the course

    In this course you'll get 8 weeks of live zoom sessions every Monday at 7-8pm GMT. First class is on Monday 10th May with the final class on 28th June. All sessions are recorded so you will have access to them at any time if you can't join live. Prerecorded bonus sessions will be uploaded to your portal on certain weeks (see course structure above for more info). If you qualify for any of the live bonuses, you'll find out dates and times once the course starts.

  • How will I be assessed?

    You’ll need to submit a video of yourself teaching hoop (either in person or online) so I can give you personalised feedback and ensure your teaching meets my qualification criteria. You have 4 weeks from the end of the live lessons to submit. You’ll also need to fill in a workbook to demonstrate your understanding of the course content and show me how you plan to start teaching once the course is finished. The course is not pass/fail or graded, but if I don't feel you have achieved the standard of teaching that I require, I will ask you to try again until I'm satisfied.

  • How many hours do I need to dedicate to this course?

    I would suggest a minimum of 2 hours a week (1 hour to watch the live lesson, the rest practicing your teaching or working on your goals/business planning). The bonus sessions are extras that will help you get more out of the course, but are not essential learning to pass the course. I've also made sure to build in implementation time in the course, so you can catch up if life gets in the way.

  • What if I can't make the live lessons?

    Don't worry, everything will be recorded for you to catch up on in your own time. You also have lifetime access to the vidoes.

  • Can I take this course anywhere in the world?

    Yes. I've had people many different countries do the course with great success. Just remember, it is your responsibility to investigate the legal, tax and insurance information relevant to your local area. But I will give you pointers on what you need to look for and how to go about it.

  • There's already someone teaching hoop in my area - is that a problem?

    No! That means there’s a market for hooping where you live. I'm a big believer in community over competition, so we will talk about this in the course.

  • Do I need a fitness qualification to teach hoop?

    In the UK, the answer is no, but you may choose to get one if you wish to go down a more fitness orientated route. If you're outside of the UK, you should check your own country's regulations, but in my experience, a hoop teacher qualification is enough to get insured to teach in most countries.

  • How can I teach in a pandemic?

    There is a whole section of this course about teaching online including all the tech equipment you need, how build an audience online and more. This is useful during pandemic times, but also for anyone who wants to expand their reach to a global market.

As seen on:

BBC
