We've Moved to Geneva, Switzerland!
I wear many hats. I am a full-time expat-mom. Creator of the hula hoop fitness practice, Hoop Gymnique™, the artisanal, bespoke hula hoop brand, Afro Hippie Hoops, and an animatrice sportive pour tous.
Since 2014, I have been inviting people to play, educating them about the health benefits of hooping, and promoting it as a fitness activity in Europe. I am very fortunate to have a husband that supports my crazy dreams.
Together we've founded two nonprofit sports associations and a global flow arts event:
🇫🇷 •Hoop de Mars-Marseille, France's premier hula hoop association, dedicated to the democratization of the sport
🇨🇭 •Hoop Fitness Genève-an all-volunteer organization to promote and develop the wellness practice of hula hooping in Geneva
🌍•International Flow Arts Day- a yearly worldwide event, an initiative created to help promote hula hooping and the flow arts as health, wellness, and fitness activities
The importance of play and freedom of expression have become increasingly undervalued in today's technology-dominated era.
After spending six years in France, our family decided to say adieu to France and set down roots in the Confédération helvétique. So, of course, I have brought my fitness philosophy and my hula hoops with us to Geneva!
I created this blog to help promote my projects advocating the benefits of fitness through flow arts and share our experiences as an expat family living in Geneva, Switzerland. My Suisse Life is a fitness, lifestyle, and travel blog for women.
I write about movement and motherhood, covering topics such as, mom-life: pregnancy, postpartum recovery, attachment parenting, long-term breastfeeding, hula hoop fitness and flow arts.
Plus, posts about life in Geneva, things to do in Geneva, and tips on traveling in Switzerland and beyond. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the content!
