Conquer shame, take up space, and live vibrantly.
At Wild Orchid we're a community of women working together to transform, rise above the nonsense, and grow stronger. Self-love warriors, risqué, playful by nature, and authentically us!
When we ask students why they're taking their first pole class, we generally get a blanket answer like "to gain upper body strength". But as they move through our program, we start to really unpack some deeper seeded hopes and desires. Like the hope to release trauma from a disempowering relationship, or the desire to increase confidence, and reconnect with their body after childbirth, or sometimes it's the yearning to be celebrated and to move without carrying the crippling fear of shame. For others, it's about play time, me time, or about igniting creativity in order to spice up a marriage. Whatever the reason, I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to help others work through these real life emotions, and to provide a local sanctuary for self discovery and expression.
