LOVE & UNDERSTAND YOUR POLE JOURNEY

As a strong-minded woman I've felt my own pressure to move up Pole levels, but due to a few injuries, my pole journey has taken me back to where I began. I'd often get twinges of envy when I would see others progress up levels or get a trick/combo/spin that I was struggling with. At times, I'd go home feeling defeated (I’m sure some of you know the feeling!)

HOW COULD A MARRIED, INDIAN WOMAN DO POLE DANCING?

I started pole about a year ago and ever since my first trial class, I haven’t looked back. I saw an ad by Sydney Pole on Facebook that said try a free class, I pondered over it for a few months, the ad kept coming, I kept ignoring it but I was always intrigued by it. I kept ignoring it because I wasn’t sure what my parents would say, what my in-laws would say, what my friends back in India would say.

YOU CAN BE STRONG, SMART & SEXY

Women are told explicitly and implicitly to reduce their magic in so many ways. There are many false dichotomies telling women they can be this or that – sexy OR smart, athletic OR into fashion, hot OR a nerd… but not both.

5 BEST PRE-WORKOUT SHNACKS

Pole-dancing is no walk in the park as far as workouts go. In fact, lifting your entire body weight, spinning around on a pole, going upside down and discovering shoulder muscles you didn’t know existed is pretty much the polar opposite of a low-key Sunday park stroll. I’ve found myself super brain dead on more than one occasion during the second hour of two back-to-back pole classes, barely able to focus, let alone lift myself into one more ‘Bat’. Major kudos to actual pole dancers who do this for a living working long shifts, because it’s freaking tiring. So, what’s the key to not casually dying during pole? The answer, I’ve discovered, is snacks. I don’t mean a whole meal - most of us don’t want to eat a super intense bowl of pasta right before class. But if you don’t fuel up, you’re going to fade fast.

POLE INVERTS & COMMON RIB INJURIES

You know the feeling – you’ve just started to progress in pole class and you’ve begun to work on getting that straddle invert. You’re working harder and feeling stronger as your skills improve, and then…OUCH. There’s that pain which will be familiar to many pole dancers – chest pain starting at the back as you drop out of your straddle. You’ve come down – you’ve felt a twinge between your shoulder blades or in your side, then the pain starts. There are a number of different types of rib injuries that happen with pole dancing and aerials. Some last a few days, some last weeks. Others can go on for months. When this happens, it's super important to get advice from someone who has a good depth of knowledge of pole dancer’s injuries, and can help you get answers to some key questions like - can you keep up your pole practice, how long will it take to recover, and what exactly is it?

HOW DANCING CAN HELP YOUR MENTAL HEALTH

When it comes to exercise, we’re all well-versed in the physical benefits of jumping around and shaking your booty. But as awareness grows of the importance of the ‘mental’ component of health, it’s important to recognise how regular exercise can be key in making not just our bodies feel better, but our minds too.
