Once you are able to waist hoop comfortably, try dipping your hands inside the hoop in your open window that appears to your front or sides. Try tracing the hoop as it spins around you to figure out it's timing. Dipping is important to incorporate your arms and gain a sense of timing for lifts.

If you can't do it, try spinning. Slowly work on this. It's taken me a year or more for it to stand still for just moments and do it!

This is actually a figure 8 jump through tutorial but it will show you a figure 8. It's pretty cut and dry trick. I've been experimenting with the figure 8 and there are so many variations for it. It's awesome! www.youtube.com/watch?v=37vrPP-WJ5I
In your first month, or few hours of flight time, you should be able to waist hoop for at least 5-10 seconds, explore your space inside your hoop, do basic hand hooping in all levels (vertical, halo/lasso/horizontal).
