Those of you who don't.....should be proud of me anyway. :-)
Let me just give you a little background, so you can understand why this is such a big thing for me....
I have steel rods in my back. I had scoliosis, and at age 14, they put rods from top to bottom, and fused my spine together. (I have only 2 vertebrae on the bottom, and I think 10 at the top-in my neck)
I know what you're thinking, cause I get it a lot: "should you be pole dancing?!" Yes! And know this.....if I CAN do it, YOU CAN do it.
I mean, there's going to be things that I will never be able to do, and I am OK with that. It was the same with belly dance. This does not stop me from doing it, performing in shows or having a great time.
Up til tonight, I had watched people do this head stand into the pole thing and thought that would never happen for me because I don't bend like that. But tonight in Pole Yoga class with Kat.....I had this feeling that I could kick my legs up and reach the pole.....so I did. And I DID!
I know you all REALLY want to see a picture of this, so I'm sure if you go to our facebook page, there will be one posted soon. (Which you should go to and like anyway if you don't already.) :-)
Next: I'm gonna work on the abs to actually pull myself up and sit from the upside down and backwards on my head position!!
Never say "I can't". Cause maybe, just maybe, you can....and you just never tried.
