Pole dancing. One of the most fun hobbies you could choose. Lately pole dancing has begun to gain many fans from all ages that are curious to try it. Its popularity is due to the fact that the ones doing pole dancing, mainly, spread the word about its benefits and how liberated you feel while training. Stereotypes related to pole dancing are one of the main reasons that repel many people from trying it. But since the word of how awesome it is has started being spreading, these stereotypes are gradually fading away. Just take a second and think, what if you knew the benefits of practicing it?
First and foremost: Strength and flexibility
When it comes to pole dancing, while you are busy practicing skills and techniques you don’t notice that you are actually lifting your whole body. As a matter of fact, you will soon start to notice changes in your body and your everyday life as you are building strong core muscles and toning your thighs and lower leg muscles. Increased stamina and general body strength are overall some of the pole dancing “side effects”. Moreover, at the same time you will feel muscles being worked out that you didn’t even know you had before. The reason for this is you are using your body itself as resistance while training. Cool isn’t it?
Boost your confidence
What is more, part of dancing on the pole is to start being more aware of your body and, thus, more comfortable with it. Feeling more comfortable will result in feeling more connected to your body and will boost your confidence. And this will have a great impact on every aspect of your everyday life. But when it comes to training the effects will be related to acquiring enhanced coordination and better balance while on the pole. What is more, as you are focused on practicing tricks and keeping your balance, you simultaneously clear your mind from everything that troubles or worries you. You are solely focused on enjoying the moment. That is why, many dancers state that pole dancing is a great way to train both your mind and your body at the same time.
Join a community of enthusiasts
Starting practicing pole dancing is your ticket to a very engaging and welcoming community. It is an opportunity to meet people with whom you share a common understanding (how fun is to do pole dancing) and build strong friendships. The community of aerial sports and pole dancing enthusiasts consists of members who are always willing to check out your moves, practice new skills with you and, in general, keep you motivated.
And the most important thing for a beginner: Pole dancing requires zero dancing background and also you are not required to be strong to practice it. Training on the pole will make you strong, so there is nothing to worry about. And of course, the first thought that will come to your mind might be “this is not for me”. But the only thing I could say here is: “You will never know if you never try”. So, what are you waiting for?
