Moms rock. It’s something we all know, especially with the amount of literature, scientific studies, and even holidays that commemorate moms. However, it doesn’t always feel like we’re all powerful-beings as mothers. We can feel unsexy, unhealthy, and even like we’re living for other people and not ourselves.
These are feelings moms don’t need to feel. We deserve to feel empowered and healthy. We deserve sexy, we deserve fun, and we deserve the chance to take up pole-dancing.
Pole dancing is something that a mom can take on at any level. There are plenty of beginner classes that allow curious women to give it a shot without the pressure of past experience. This is a place to learn and grow, you don’t have to have the skills when you enter.
Pole dancing has a number of benefits specifically for mothers from building confidence to building community.
This is a fun and sexy form of exercise made entirely for you! Here are some of the best ways pole-dancing can benefit moms:
1. Community and Friends
Pole dancing can provide moms with a new and supportive community. Through taking classes or attending performances, moms have a chance to make new friends and nurture awesome relationships with like-minded women. Often these friendships are in fact with other moms! This is the perfect way to expand your support system.
Pole dancing is hard work. It takes strength, creativity, and a certain amount of confidence. That being said, working toward these qualities is an unbelievably empowering experience. Better still, pole-dancing is something mothers can do completely for themselves. This isn’t for your family, your work, or anyone else. This is about YOU! What’s more confidence boosting than giving yourself the time you deserve?
3. Physical Health
Pole dancing is an incredible work-out. Not only does it build strength (shout out to being a strong woman!) but it also improves our flexibility. One of the wonderful things about pole-dancing is that you don’t have to be perfectly fit as you start. This is an opportunity to improve yourself, there’s no pressure to prove yourself. The combination of these physical attributes? A certain sex appeal that will leave any mom with a glow of confidence and health.
4. A Chance to Learn
Learning to pole dance is a wonderful opportunity to learn a new skill. Not only is it a chance for moms to improve themselves through exercise and confidence, but it’s also a unique and interesting skill to add to your life. This isn’t an activity that everyone takes on, that makes it all the more special.
5. Mental Health
Exercise is an amazing feat to help us strengthen our mental health. This especially important as a mother and can help combat issues many of us moms deal with like post-partum depression. Through empowerment, confidence-building, and endorphin releases, pole-dancing can act as a mental and emotional outlet.
Last weekend Pole Fitness Seattle instructors and artists, Yael Kallin and Sean Sellek performed at Seattle's annual Venice is Sinking Ball. The event was held at the Seattle Design Center in Sodo and created by Epiphany Events. The ball is one of the most celebrated events of year and guests dress to the nines... even in Seattle ;)
We couldn't be more proud of our team who performed beautifully and jaws dropped. Yael and Sean now call themselves Duo Helix and both teach regular classes at the Pole Fitness Seattle studio.
They competed at the PSO Northwest competition last year and won. They plan to continue to work together and have goals to bring their act to Las Vegas this fall.
Go Yael and Sean!
For those of us who aren’t naturally born (or trained) event planners, thinking of exciting group activities can be a drag. Bowling, dinner and drinks, movie nights- it’s all been done. Even worse, they’ve been done so many times that people might not want to come and you might not blame them. Enough of that nonsense though. If you’re looking for a dynamic time for a party, team event, or other group outing, here’s our take: pole-dancing.
Pole-dancing is a great activity for groups, even as a one-time event. It can be perfect for bachelorette parties, birthdays, or even team-building. It allows a group to have fun, stay fit, and gain confidence all in one go. Below our some of the specifics on how pole-dancing tailors itself to a variety of events.
Ladies, bachelorette parties are the perfect time to engage in the fun, confident, and daring side of you and your friends! With the safety and encouragement of your closest friends, a bachelorette party is ideal for trying new things and taking the time to be the sexy goddesses you all are! Furthermore, this is a fantastic way to remind the bride-to-be that no matter what her future looks like, her friends have always got her back to help her feel empowered. Not to mention, pole-dancing is dancing, it’s music, it’s upbeat tempos- it’s fun! Fun is exactly what bachelorette parties should entail.
There’s no better way (we think) to celebrate a milestone than by trying something new! Since every year will bring you new experiences, we might as well tackle newness by trying activities outside of our comfort zone. This is an opportunity to avoid the tired celebration go-tos like a dinner out and take a chance to have loads of fun with all of your loved ones. It’ll be a birthday you never forget and after this hard workout, you’ll deserve that cake!
Okay, fair enough, pole-dancing events aren’t the first instinct for team-building. We get that. As it turns out though, this is a great option to create a dynamic and confident team. Pole-dancing offers an opportunity for every team member to gain confidence which can lead to confidence at work. Just like much of your team may have never imagined themselves pole-dancing, they may have never imagined themselves pitching the idea that can boost the team’s success or taking on a new initiative. Pole-dancing can act as a boost for morale. Pole-dancing is also the perfect place to build trust, safety, and encouragement among team members. As you work together to master this new skill, team-building skills like trust and encouragement can be easily fostered.
Pole-dancing can often be thought of an individual pursuit or something you have to commit to. In reality, it can make a perfect group event. While you only have to do it once, we think it’s likely that you’ll come back for more.
How to Book?
I am inspired by feeling, depth and uniqueness; The moon, the cold night and all of those unforseen energies we are surrounded by every day. Turning those inspirations into movement bring me an immense amount of joy.
Dance has always been a part of my life. I've always felt most alive right before going on stage, feeling the energy of the crowd before me and how my movements are inspiring their reactions.
When I discovered Pole Fitness Seattle I rekindled my confidence, my desire to share this art with the world and a community of humans who also feel this way, and support one another deeply. It's a beautiful, magical thing. I want to help others find what sets their souls on fire.
