Hey there beautiful souls,

Are you someone who's been eyeing that pole dance class but find yourself hesitating because of your size? Well, let me tell you something straight from the heart: size doesn't define your ability to shine on that pole. In fact, being plus-size can be your superpower on this journey to self-discovery, confidence, and strength.

I get it. Stepping into a new dance class, especially one as daring and empowering as pole dance, can be intimidating. There's this misconception that only certain body types can gracefully glide and twirl around that pole. But let me assure you, that's just not true.

Pole dance is for every body. Yes, every body. Your curves, your edges, your uniqueness – they are all part of what makes you perfectly suited for this journey. As a plus-size person myself, I understand the doubts and fears that might be holding you back. But trust me when I say, those doubts will fade away the moment you take that first step into the studio.

Here's the thing about pole dance: it's not just about the physical movements. It's about embracing your body, celebrating what it can do, and discovering strengths you never knew you had. It's about feeling the music pulse through your veins as you spin, twist, and defy gravity. It's about reclaiming your space, your power, and your confidence.

In the pole dance community, inclusivity is key. You'll find a supportive network of dancers who uplift and inspire each other regardless of size, shape, or background. You'll discover that your journey is unique and valid, and that there's beauty in every movement, every spin, every climb.

So, if you've been on the fence about trying pole dance, I encourage you to take that leap of faith. Join us in the studio, where judgment has no place and self-love reigns supreme. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, to be bold, to be unapologetically you.

And hey, if you need a little extra nudge, I'm offering a Plus size Pole Power workshop in London for anyone ready to embark on this journey with me. Simply click this link Book Now | Integrated Movement ( to book your spot. Let's defy expectations together and rewrite the narrative of what it means to be a pole dancer.

Remember, your size is not a limitation – it's a testament to your strength, resilience, and beauty. So go ahead, embrace the pole, and let your light shine brighter than ever before.

With love,

Topher & Integrated Movement Studio

P.S. See you on the pole!
