In a world that is suffering from labels and stigma, rape and abuse towards women- I can’t think of a better time to embrace pole fitness. I have discovered in my own practice how empowering this now Olympic sport can be physically, emotionally and mentally. Meet Sylvia, the owner of Milan Pole Dance in Wynwood. Because of her, my girl Deneen and the community I found at Milan, you can find me straddling the pole every hump day like a pro. I tapped into my Private Dancer, we all have one.
