Pole Kisses

Is it weird to be proud of bruises? I didn’t used to think anything of them when I got them but now, I love to show them off.  I think bruises get a bad reputation because they usually only happen when you get hurt, and while I can’t say the methods in which...

HOT TIPS!

​Aerial Dance, specifically pole, has been a huge eye opener for me. It really has built a new part of me, shown me different ways to workout and actually have fun, and taught me new outlooks in everyday life. I get a sort of excitement each time I go to my...

In my blog “be like Mario” I commented how you always had to go back to Level 1 in Mario to eventually save the princess. The game didn’t allow you to start where you left off because it wanted you to hone your muscle memory in the lower levels over and over. All that...

Long Term Goals

It is extremely important in life to always set goals for yourself: school, work, exercise, bills, etc. Setting a goal small is the best way to start out. It doesn’t feel like too much, but you can still be proud of yourself when you accomplish that...

Silks Class

Silks are definitely something to be intimidated by. They are pretty tricky. The beauty that they behold can be yours with lots of practice however. My first experience where I was intrigued by silks was actually at a circus shortly after I joined Pole. I’m I...
