    Pole Dancing!!!

    Shop Now
    Those of you who do it, will you please share more info? I am SOOOO intrigued. I've been watching this woman all morning and am blown away!





    I also saw a super sweet vid of Jenyne Butterfly and am so very inspired.

    I would love to hear more from others about how you have gotten into it, what a typical class entails, etc. I have a place locally that teaches pole classes and I am planning to start w/ a beginner series in October! Just wanted to get a convo going about this as it seems very in line w/ the Primal lifestyle!!!

    Basically gymnastics on a stripper pole. I`d try it.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    My sister is into this. Her living room is basically two poles. She takes a class or two a week and performs as a part of the class. She compared it to ballet recitals when we were little kids, lol. It's a killer workout and would totally qualify as play.

    I think this is a fabulous idea. Never tried it myself (nothing that cool near me), but I'd love to hear about your experience after your intro class!

    Here it's called "pole sport" and it's harder than hell, I tell you. I have a friend who owns and teaches at a pole studio (she's awesome), and i help out with flexibility and similar stuff with my yoga. I took one class and was like "yeah, i'm out." It's a *lot* of work, and while very cool, I did not enjoy. But, a LOT of my clients do. Your hands get *really* strong. It's awesome.

    And there are competitions, and men do it too. It's cool.
