It’s no secret that sometimes you will hit a low in your pole practice and those are the worst. Maybe the voice in your head gets louder, class seems harder than usual and quite frankly, it feels like no matter what you do you can’t pull yourself out of it.
If you’re in need of a little pole inspiration at this time, we've got you covered. Here is a fun list of quotes that just might motivate you or at the very least make you smile this week. Keep this blog link and pull it up the next time you need inspiration.
1. "I was a slightly overweight, spiky-fringed, rat's-tailed '80s girl who was just showing up. That's all I've ever really done to get here, just kept showing up. Even when I didn't want to. That's what I do." - Sia
First and foremost, you showed up to class. You made the choice of getting off the couch or leaving your desk and driving to the studio. You got a sitter or handed off the kids to your partner and made time for yourself. Guess what, you are #winning already.
2. “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes… including you” - Anna Lomott
Staying consistent in your training and keeping a regular schedule is important but remember that included in that schedule should be your rest days. Rest days aren’t just for the body but also the mind. Unplug your phone for a couple hours, take a bath, and take a break from social media. It will do wonders for you.
3. “Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally.” — Christian Louboutin
It is no wonder that Cynthia’s flow class is one of the most popular on the schedule. There are very few things that make you feel like a million bucks more than putting on a pair of heels and swinging around a pole in the dark. Retail therapy is a real thing and treating yourself to a new pair of heels for pole class is one of the best pick me ups. #treatyourself
4. “Comparison is the death of joy.” - Mark Twain
Don’t compare yourself to others. Your pole journey and practice are uniquely your own. Celebrate that with joy rather than comparison. It may seem as if others don't struggle, but human beings are more alike than we think. Chances are they have their own challenges too.
