Top 5 BEST things about Yoga Flirt
Yoga Flirt has really turned out to be a pretty darn fabulous experience. It is a Divine gift to the women of our community. I often say, “I’m smart, but not that smart.” Yoga Flirt and it’s practices came through me rather than from me. Now that it has been around for a bit I can really see some amazing things that it provides to women.
Here are the top 5 BEST things about Yoga Flirt (according to the Queen).
5. Fun, Fun, Fun
We all know we need to exercise to be healthy. It might as well be smile and even laughter-inducing. From the playful floor warm-up to flying around the pole to the fact that 6″ stilettos are your work-out shoes, there is always a reason to smile and celebrate. When was the last time your classmates at spin class applauded and cheered you on for your efforts?
4. Smokin’ Guns
Yep, the Michelle Obama arms are yours to be had. The longer your practice Yoga Flirt, the more you will notice strength developing in your biceps, triceps and shoulders. Plus, your abs. And while most pole studios stop with the strengthening at those two main areas, Yoga Flirt also ensures that your body is balanced and strengthens your legs as well. One day you’ll want to hang on a pole by just a bit of inner thigh or ankle and you need strong legs to do that!
I’ve heard from former students who have moved away that take classes at other studios and what they miss the most is Yoga Flirt’s systematic approach to success. Either they are left to “do whatever you can” or they are given progressively more challenging moves until they find their edge and there is no practice on prerequisite skills to further their practice or there is no focus on balancing strength in the body, so the strong side gets stronger and the less dominant side is left alone. Yoga Flirt’s progression through each level prepares and delights students as they are safely able to accomplish moves that even just 8 weeks before may not have been possible. We honor that pole fitness in an on-going journey, an unfolding of delights, not a rush to the biggest-most-exciting moves that could lead to injury.
2. Strength Part 2
Flirts develop an inner strength that can best be described as owning, knowing and living your own self-worth. There is a deep knowing of our own worthiness. We deserve class time. We deserve kind and honest communication. We are worthy of quality family time, alone time, work time, etc. We can allow ourselves to live with joy and the more we do that, the more everyone in our lives benefits.
1. It’ all about Love
I recently had a Facebook conversation with a Flirt that went something like this: Me: “You’re so awesome” Her: “No, you’re so awesome” Flirt #3: “You’re both so awesome” Flirt #4:”I agree with Flirt #3″ Flirt #5:” I agree with everyone” And so on.
Sometimes newer Flirts feel that only their class is a place of non-judgement, acceptance of who and how they are, a place where encouragement and support is free flowing. Flirts who not only attend their own class, but also Open Pole, Strength Class, and special events quickly discover the entire Flirt community is just as warm, loving, embracing and accepting. Newer Flirts are our favorites – we all started at the beginning and know what it feels like to only know a few moves, to still feel a bit awkward and a little in awe of on-going students.
There is a deep and profound sense of community and respect among all Flirts that is evident even outside the studio. When Flirts run into each other outside the studio, they say they know one another from yoga, honoring each others’ choice to share or not share what type of yoga they practice.
Friendships and bonds form between women of all ages from 18 to 55+, from all types of backgrounds and life styles – students, mothers, business women, self-employed, retired, unsure what’s next, etc. – simply because Yoga Flirt is not just a pole fitness practice, it is a life style practice teaches that life is really all about love.
