Two of the most common questions I am ask about pole dancing/fitness are:
- What does pole dancing mean?
- How to get into pole fitness?
So what is pole dancing/pole fitness and what does it mean?
Pole dancing, pole fitness is the ultimate activity in self-expression and self-acceptance.
Doing dance,stretch,or movement on or around the pole often feels like a form of meditation, it is like going into a fabulous trance. Pole classes and pole activities are often very supportive, whereas other dance forms can be more competitive. You often find yourself among a diverse bunch of people all celebrating body positivity, self expression, and self acceptance.
People often don't feel connected to their own bodies and there is a disconnection between the mind and body, Pole fitness/dance will help you find or develop that connection and instead of walking around just dragging your body around all day your mind and body work in harmony. Like yoga, pole fitness is a good way to change your perceptions and help you become aware of all the different possibilities you can actually do with your body and mind.
How can I get into pole dancing /pole fitness?
If you have never tried a pole class I encourage you to do so immediately. I have taught thousands of people over my years of owning and operating the Stiletto Gym & Polga (pole yoga) Fitness and I can honestly say I have seen more transformations in people's mind and body than I did in all my years working as a psychologist. Check out some local studios, explore online options. Many studios like ours offer both in-person and online options.
