I am finally clear to resume my pole training. Sort of.
The official recommendation is to begin with light weight training, then gradually add increased weight back in before jumping back into inversion flows and twisted grips. I’ll do my best to follow this sage advice, but I know that I won’t be able to resist a few delicious leg hangs.
I inverted for the first time in a few weeks today, and the feeling was at once so familiar and so new – perhaps because I was playing in Embody’s incredible new Orange County studio. It felt at once like home, with Embody’s warm, rich wooden floors, chocolate-washed walls and sumptuous red lights. But still, after the countless hours that I have spent at Embody’s Corona studio, this space feels new.
I cannot wait to dance on every square inch of that beautiful floor, to climb those brand new, beautiful poles, to learn the silks (yes!). I know that, with time, this studio, too, will become another home to me.
[Twenty foot poles! Silks! A dedicated fitness room! Oh my!]
I’ll begin my regular class line-up tomorrow night: first, Exotic Floorwork, Fluidity, and Flow, and then Pole 1. I am beyond thrilled for the opportunity to begin my regular class schedule. It is a great privilege to share my love of pole with my students, and it motivates me to be the very best dancer that I can.
Congratulations to Diana Renee and to the women of Embody Pole Fitness, on our new home.
