Age: 35 Job: Supply Chain Business Planning Manager

When did you join the Vertical Vixen studios?

I joined Vertical Vixen in February 2014

What were your reasons for joining?

Initially a friend and I joined in a quest to attain body confidence. I didn’t think I would last more than a month but that changed very quickly after my third class.

Are they still the same?

The studio is still the same creating a safe space for the exploration of your abilities and the expression of yourself without fear of judgement.

Because of the classes / new exercise regime – did you start to make changes to other areas of your life? if so what?

I definitely made changes in almost every area of my life. The classes allowed me to explore a confidence I have never felt before along with the acceptance of who I was at that moment. This allowed me to approach everything in life with more belief in myself and confidence in my ability be it at work, in relationships or family.

What other benefits / experiences / friendships have you gained from your classes at Vertical Vixen?

Besides developing confidence, I made many new friends that have added different dimensions to my life. My journey with Vertical Vixen allowed me to learn to explore who I was, love myself and allowed me the ability to let go of the fear of what others think. I also started to look at life from a different more open minded perspective. One that allowed me to accept and understand that the expression of your sensuality and strength as a women isn’t something to be ashamed of but something to be celebrated.

What advice would you give to anyone thinking of trying pole? (Why would you tell someone to join a pole class?)

Forget about what others think and just try it. Trying one pole class will set your off on an amazing journey of digging deep to establish a profound confidence and love for yourself irrespective of the standards the world places on us. You will discover your strength and realize that your potential far exceeds the limitations you place on yourself.

Anything else you would like to share?

The journey to confidence and self-love starts be letting go of everything you thought you knew about yourself and embracing everything you will learn about yourself. This journey is made easier when you open yourself to been surrounded by people who motivate you and encourage you to rise up to every challenge. They celebrate your achievements and see endless possibilities for you. This support is something you will definitely find at Vertical Vixen with a gentle smile and the resounding applause when you do your first invert.
