Let me say that I reject the notion that flexibility, pole dance, aerial fitness, and general fitness are just for the already fit and flexible. And allow me to add to that: the young, attractive, rich and privileged. Nothing about flexility and fitness belongs to any class or group of people. So forget what you see on social media and these false seeds of information being planted in your mind.
I can’t tell you how many women (and men) I encounter that have delayed doing something that’s caught their interest because of what another person told them. Probably someone that was unhappy or scared to try themselves. Flexibility and ALL the fitness is for anyone that has an INTEREST and DESIRE to try.
If you aren’t flexible, that’s okay, that’s why you go to flexility class…to work on your flexibility. If you don’t think you’re strong enough or coordinated enough to pole dance or do aerial fitness that’s okay! That’s why you start in beginner classes so you can learn the foundational moves and build up the strength you need. If you aren’t your ideal shape/size that’s why you go get that gym membership and maybe a trainer and start working towards building the body of your dreams. If you have two left feet but want to bachata, dance hip hop, or do a sexy strip dance in your tallest heels, then take a dance class or a private and start working towards that dance dream.
Whatever it is that you want to do, YOU SHOULD DO!
If you find a teacher that says you can’t or shouldn’t because of your age, shape, size, weight, sex, etc then know that it’s not because that activity isn’t for you, it’s really because that instructor isn’t for you. Unless there’s a medical professional advising against it, its just someone else’s useless opinion. If there’s a will there’s a way!
I’ve been told all my life that I couldn’t do things or was not expected to excel, we’ll I’ve proved a many people wrong. And being the underdog, doing the unexpected, know that I will always support and root for the underdog. So if you want to come to a flexibility class, c’mon! If you want to try pole dance, aerial yoga, hoop, sign up for a class! If you want to dance or strut your stuff in heels, grab your tallest stilettos and get yo boogie on. Whatever it is that you want to do or try, GO FOR IT! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain! And for anyone that walks into ANY of my classes, know that I will support you 110% and help you reach your goals. I don’t care what your size, shape, age, experience, etc. is. All you need is to have the will, together we will make a way!
