Hashtags #bodyandpole for Instagram

Having a static pole that I can’t even get a full climb in on at work, as well as only a few feet circumference before I kick people’s faces means I’ve been #bodystorming nonstop about new shapes & tightly contained spins I can bust out 👀🧠💪🏼

handbalancing has been an interesting mental challenge for me, bc unlike a lot of other skills i can just muscle through, it doesn’t matter how strong i am if i don’t trust my balance. i can do pull-ups and push ups all day long—but if i panic every time i float, i’m not gonna be able to use any of that strength to actually balance on my hands. so it’s been a very humbling process to start from square 1 and just play with trusting my hands—which i trust to carry me in the air—to hold me up on the floor. anyway that’s a long prelude to a somewhat-less-shitty-than-usual crow, from @phillvonawesome’s class at @bodyandpole #bodyandpole ✌️🤘

Ok, so this is my new favorite hobby. I’m a beginner, but it makes me feel powerful and unencumbered. Thanks @kimberlyweiss for encouraging me to try something new!

Yay! #Reposting @jeni_velfit with @instarepost_app -- Some of Friday night’s @liquidmotionct practice. 🙌🏼 🐠 Proud to say I was finally able to get a #pdfishflop (not just from a shoulder stand or a pole.) I’ve been trying this move for a while now and the mechanics of it are finally starting to make sense. Now to clean it up!!! Thanx to all of the wonderful teaching from @jenijanoisliquid @stellamybella @bodyandpole

I took my first intro to pole class today! It was so intense and required so much upper body strength (which I lacked), yet it was so fun! I wish there wasn’t a huge stigma on pole dancing bc it’s such a beautiful form of art and not just for stripping. Anyway, I’m so glad I started dance this summer, it was something I wanted to do for an extremely long time and I finally did it 💖 Also thanks to @_katerinaaas for being my dance buddy!

Research informs us that a great way to relieve stress and increase confidence is to try something new.... oh, and to bring a friend.... Well.... done and done!

Here’s one of the last run-throughs of my pole piece that I performed way back in March. I liked it better than the actual performance bc of how the sunlight changes and my booty wasn’t eating my shorts. It’s called Hiraeth and it is about homesickness. I hope you enjoy! Thanks to @magnuslabbe for coaching me! ❤️Music: Lone Pilgrim by Crooked Still

Worked on floor jades and shoulder rolls in @samuelpaulish’s Low Flow heels class tonight, which I somehow miraculously got into. That floor jade, while nowhere near flat or straight-legged, is still better than I expected. There’s hope there, even if i look like an awkward hot mess. Also, I’m definitely having a bad body day, in that I cannot look at these videos without cringing at how gross and jiggly i am. But, i can do shit with my body, and that’s all that matters, right?

a lil sped-up lyra fun from @danceralexandria’s Lyra 1 class at @bodyandpole. i wrote lyra off for so long (ripped up my hands, thought it required crazy flexibility) in favor of silks, and i’m just now starting to realize how accessible and fun it can be. that said, good god make sure you check where the pin for the lyra point is before you climb up on top of the hoop

【My 🐦 of paradise has been getting stable 💕】①From today's practice. I gave up doing this cutie at PSO Liberty due to the spinny pole condition in my skin, but you'll see me doing this at another competition during Oct-Dec 2018 for sure 💪 Finally this cutie is getting stable for me. Both in & out positions. Thank you for dancers who gave me the tips to make it stable 💜 ②I miss Japan 🇯🇵 now. Especially the beautiful sea. No Bahama, no Hawaii, but Okinawa!! I'll explore Okinawa islands next time when I'm back 🌺 By the way, my Japanese name '碧 (=Midori)' in Kanji means beautiful blue-green just like Okinawan sea 🌊 #japanesepoledancer #missmycountry #birdofparadise #discoverjapan #iloveokinawa #pdcompetition #pdtrick #pdbirdofparadise #pdsplits #spinningpole #ilovepole #bendy #flexy #athlete #competitorlife #polesport #bodyandpole #nyc #lifegoals #tgit #thursdaymotivation #chealseamano

I’m gonna shamelessly fangirl out & say that @nemoschaospheres is the most underrated teacher at @bodyandpole 😻 Bitches are sleeping on Kasia because her classes are usually small, which I love because I can get hella personal attention, but it totally flabbergasts me. Totes obsessed with her attention to detail, incredible knowledge of body mechanics that I know comes from her dedication & focus on her training, yet she’s also so beautiful & fluid, queen of gestures. I feel like I’ve made so many break throughs on moves that I was struggling with because of her classes or tips she’s given me that helped something click in my mind & body.

This is my new fav conditioning move, inverting, butterfly, then stepping down. I’m basically falling down during these first attempts but I need to work on engaging my core & especially obliques & then one day it will be slow controlled & graceful, & then even further on it will become part of a tumble combo from the top of the pole 😻 Thank you Kasia 💞💓💗 GO TAKE HER CLASSES Y’ALL

Flooding your feed because it’s 4 AM & IG is not cooperating with multiple video posts today, prob due to my vintage iPhone 5S with the screen cracked (yes, I’m Drake’s side girl.) Anyways, part 1 of a v relaxing & embodied #findingyourfreestyle class, I wish I could do this before every work shift 💓

My greatest joy dancing comes from finding presence and peace with my body in the moment. Limitations and all. And letting that be enough.

I’ve wanted to get this shape and this grip for years and i’ve never been able to do it. Even in tonight’s class, I couldn’t figure it out, struggling with pain from oddly twisted wrists and super hiked up shoulders. Then, @jessijamzzz suggested that we push our torsos away from the pole prior to setting up the grip, and VOILA! Didn’t successfully get it until after class ended but I’m glad @_courtney.k (aka best pole partner ever) decided to try again, because it forced me to try again too. Yay for long awaited Pole accomplishments... redeemed a night where i felt shitty as fuck about my pole abilities. .

“You were feeling yourself today” my teacher @sammykomarsh told me after class ☺️ Because I successfully got my diaper for the first time (is there a sexier name for that orrrr 😂) & also that cool double stag shape at the beginning of the second clip, which I’ve never learned before. Usually my inner thighs/hammies/hip flexors are so tight that the pain is unbearable & this is my first hammock class where I didn’t feel like it was holding me back 🏆 Thanks Sam 💓

Some paperwork due, no training today, kinda stressful!! See you tomorrow BP. Here's a shot of my reddish-brown hair. I dye & cut my hair every 3 months. Plus, I usually put red point color by myself the day before of the competition. It's for kicking my butt like 🔥🔥.
