Emmy started her pole journey in 2019 after being encouraged by a work colleague to try chair dancing at Feelin’ Peachy. At the time, Emmy had just finished a difficult maternity leave and was trying to find her identity again as a new mum. Emmy was hesitant to come – being plus sized, not very fit, and not very confident, Emmy was unsure how she would fit in.
After just one class, Emmy was buying pole heels and outfits and has never looked back since, with some of her closest friends being other students in the studio. Her confidence has flourished both inside and outside of the studio.
In 2021, Emmy decided to pursue her love for pole dancing and the studio even further by becoming an instructor with Feelin’ Peachy. Emmy has a chronic lower back injury and a gynaecological issue which can both cause serious pain. Emmy’s favourite thing to do as an instructor (apart from dancing to a Disney medley!) is to demonstrate that pole is for all body sizes and types, and to make our classes accessible and inclusive.
Emmy’s advice would be – give it a go, or you might never see what you’re missing!
