Co-Motion Studio is committed to awakening the spirit of playful movement in Memphis through hula hooping, yoga, parkour, dance, and other forms of creative expression. Our movement activities center around physical, mental, emotional, and community movement in a fun and uplifting way.
Our grassroots community outreach has been building a Community in Motion since 2011, providing a myriad of healthy, restorative movement activities, education, and supplies for under-served communities in the Memphis region. We focus on serving low income and at-risk youth and families, seniors, veterans and survivors of trauma and abuse such as sexual assault and domestic violence, girls and minority empowerment, and other non-profit organizations who serve compatible communities. Some organizations we support include Youth Villages, Girls Inc., Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region, One Billion Rising, and SRVS.
Check out how hoops have contributed to people supported at SRVS: SRVS gets hoops for training purposes.
And perhaps you’ve found one of our Hoop Bombs around town? Hoop Bombs is our project with a mission to cover playgrounds, bus stops, vacant lots, public green spaces, community centers, and childcare centers in low income areas in urban Memphis with hoops. Using our own volunteer time and money we have already made and dropped hoop bombs at many locations throughout the Mid-South. View some of our drops on our map: http://goo.gl/maps/llISA

Where your money goes:
Donations are used to purchase supplies (tubing and decorative tapes) to make durable, creative, hand-crafted hoops and to purchase hand made hoops from local hoop artisans. Hoops are then distributed around the city, as part of our Hoop Bomb project, at Youth Villages residential treatment centers, and to other compatible non-profits. Donations will also go towards the Co-Motion Studio Scholarship Program, allowing people in the community to participate in movement classes, workshops, and programming at our studio at a reduced cost, or free.
