We live in a world that’s telling us to always look outside ourselves for more. More money, more things, more beauty products, more clothes, more of everything-pole tricks included. We are constantly bombarded with messages that whatever we are and whatever we have is not enough.But what if we stopped chasing after more and instead started appreciating what we have? Like REALLY appreciating what we have, not a half assed superficial assessment then go about our day. We might just find that we have so much more than we’ve been led to believe .
One of the most powerful tools to appreciate ourselves as we are right now is by taking note when our bodies FEEL good—whether it's dancing in classes or taking a nice warm shower. When we live sensually, we're more in tune with our bodies and our surroundings—and that can lead to feeling more abundant with what we have.
I know I shared this before, but one of my go to personal abundance practices is as follows: I think of one thing I’m grateful for and write that down. Next I think of as many things as possible that I appreciate about the thing I’m grateful for. What started as one simple statement has become a list of many things that already existed, but maybe haven’t gotten enough appreciation. It only takes a few minutes and you can do it anywhere.
So right about now you might be wondering “wtf does this have to do with pole dancing and sensual movement”.
In the pole realm, it’s hard not to fall into the trap of thinking more is more (esp with ig and tiktok). More tricks, more flexibility, more strength, more dance moves, more outfits-only when we have more will we be “good at pole”. Fuck, most of us thought we needed more of half of those things before we even took our first class. (If you haven’t taken a class yet, trust us-you don’t need any of those things to start)
That’s not what we’re about and that’s certainly not how we want you to feel in our space. This is a space for you to slow down and appreciate where you are and all you can do in that given moment of time. It’s a space to let go of the pressures of chasing after more and feeling abundant as you are right now.
If all you have in you is the energy for a pole walk or a simple spin, how can you make the most of that instead of trying to force anything more? Have you ever taken the time to explore your fullest expression of the things we cast aside as “simple”? There is so much beauty to be found in simplicity and if no one else has told you, your beauty is abundant af.
