Chwenny confesses, “As a teenager, an appropriate description of me would have been ‘super-girly-girl-meets-whimpy-nerd.’ I avoided all forms of sports like the plague and thought that exercise was only for people who needed to lose weight.”
Then, in her mid-twenties she discovered yoga and realized that , “…it was practiced in bare feet (no ugly trainers required, yay!) and every class ends in lying down,” she was sold. Yoga got her to connect with her body, but she was looking for more. Ballet? Hip-hop? Belly dancing? …all rejected as too formal, too hard or too silly.
“Then I saw pole dancing,” Chwenny says. “…sensuality, grace, girly-ness, and spiked heels. Very interesting!”
I have added her Website to our blogroll for those readers who are interested in getting first hand insights from a pole dancer. She is dedicated, delightful and Chwenny even has her own YouTube Channel.
“Suddenly, I’ve found a form of exercise that I can’t get enough of!” She says she can, “…still act like a super girly girl, and I’m still a whimpy little nerd at heart who hates sports, but I can lift my own body weight on a vertical metal pole now while wearing 5″ heels.”
