A few months ago when I was looking for a belly dancing class, I ran across this site. I laughed at first but read some of the postings and watched a news article about the classes. It looked like a lot of fun so I called a friend and asked her to join me. With some encouragement, she figured, “why not!” After just the first class, we were both hooked! I signed up for the class thinking I just needed to get into shape physically. I was wrong. This class has taught me so much about myself and given me an inner strength that I had only pretended to possess until now. It gave me the opportunity to look inside and accept myself completely. I have kept the true me hidden away because I didn’t think people would like me otherwise. Pole dancing and the whole Fit for a Goddess experience, has given me the self-love and confidence to now feel worthy of my husband’s love. It has empowered me to be TRULY strong, not just pretend to be. I would recommend this class to anyone regardless of what kind of shape you’re in or whether or not you think you can do it. The real beauty is, it’s not just your body that you will be shaping!
Sorry I missed the last classes! I’ve been dealing with some medical issues recently, which prevented me from coming. I was especially disappointed that I couldn’t come to the last one! I do want to say that what I did learn in the class, and how I felt was wonderful. I love what you are doing for women’s self-esteem and self-empowerment.
Take care, Jamie
It is hard to find people out there like you! I am so happy to be part of this circle of women! It is truly a breath of fresh air and quite an inspiration! This whole experience has been uplifting and inspiring. I am so grateful for your knowledge and love that you share, which in turn brings unity to your groups. You should be proud!
Lots of love, Lauli’a
I just wanted to say thank you again for showing me how to reawaken my inner goddess. Last Friday I auditioned for a community college production and we had to move sensuously at one point. I incorporated a few movements I learned in class and it paid off because I ended up with the most sensuous character in the play. Hopefully I’ll be able to take Level 2 next semester. Thanks again.
Hope all is well! Michelle
Just wanted to let you know that I’ll be taking Level 4 again. It’s been a healing journey for me taking these classes. They keep me grounded physically, spiritually& mentally.
I wanted to tell you that I’ve really enjoyed taking your class (I look forward to it every Saturday) and I’ve recommended it to my girlfriends and co-workers! I really feel it has improved my mood and has helped me to laugh easier, de-stress, and loosen up (my boyfriend thanks you – I come home from class happy and smiling, and it has eased a lot of tension in our house). Also, the week you were sick, Tracy did a really great job leading class – with her good energy and attitude, she’s a great instructor! You can really feel confident about your staff!
Thank you, Tiffany
As an apprentice teacher, when sharing my thoughts on what Fit for a Goddess has done for me to a class at the beginning of each series, I usually talk about my gymnastics background, how I love playing on my new apparatus, the confidence building aspect of the class, and the great women I’ve met… blah blah blah. While that is all true, it is much deeper for me actually. I haven’t shared that side of it because it is so personal. I do want to share it with you now and I wouldn’t mind it being posted on the web site. I guess I’m ready to be open about it. I find it truly amazing that a pole dancing class cannot only transform someone physically by way of exercise, but on the inside as well. Who would have thought! I started this journey for the exercise and to relive my childhood dream of becoming a great gymnast, ha ha (I do love the athletic aspect to the pole), but something else happened… I found my self worth! Once upon a time, I was married to a man that physically and emotionally abused me. He took my self-esteem, what little self worth I had at the time, and my dignity. I can’t begin to tell you how I felt inside when I finally ran away from that marriage. I was an emotional mess. It has been a long process of self-analysis and lots of healing these last 4 years. When Kimberly introduced me to this class she really helped me more than she knows (I should probably tell her that). This class has helped me feel good about myself again, I have the self worth that I know I should posses. I’m eager to date again as I was seriously gun shy and afraid of men for the last 4 years. But now I can date and I can walk away from people that aren’t worth it. I refuse to settle for anything less than what I deserve. It feels so wonderful to feel good about myself. I honestly don’t know if I ever have felt this good about me until this class. I walk the world differently, head up high. I want to thank you for inviting me into your ‘sacred circle’ of great women! I love what you have created and I am so honored to be a part of your team. I get great pleasure in helping woman find their inner goddess and I hope I can help transform women as well as you have for many years to come.
Much Love and Aloha, Brandie
I wanted to thank you for all you have done for me. Thank you for being open to talk about the things we discussed, for listening to me, and giving me so much of value for my private lessons. I also want to say, I think your classes are great. It is wonderful learning how to move so sensually, feeling the camaraderie of the other women in the group, and really celebrating our feminine nature. You are doing something really wonderful for your community and for the world.
