Heidi's Pole Journey
I am so glad I went along albeit nervously to my first pole class it has improved my confidence in so many ways.
Butterfly studio provides a safe place for you to feel comfortable being yourself and helps you to learn to appreciate your body for what it is and to see the incredible things it is capable of.
I've always been a bit overweight and not always liked how I look and my body. Since beginning pole and learning so many m amazing things that I can do, despite being a bit overweight I've become so much more confident in myself, and whereas I'm not 100% happy (yet) I don't hate my body, and I don’t hate it anymore.
I am now comfortable in polewear (it took a while) and just feel better about myself overall.
Every time I succeed in performing a harder move, I have a sense of accomplishment. The feeling “I can do this and much more!” Drives you to you keep going and push forward.
I have new confidence in myself, and not only physically.
From the first time I climbed the pole and held the move to now I have loved every class and workshop and look forward to continuing to grow in confidence on and off the pole
Sam's Pole Journey
Pole was something I'd always wanted to try. What held me back was a complicated mix of lack of confidence in my body, fear of not being able and the stigma I thought might be implied if I did it. I spent years admiring the people who could do it and never thought I'd be good enough.
Then I met an amazingly confident woman who became a good friend and she explained how she'd given it a go years earlier. After months of spying on the butterfly studio page from afar, I asked her to come with me. It was the best thing we could have ever done!
At first I was worried about mixing with people who were superstars at poling but a beginners class helped ease those fears. When I first went to mixed classes, I couldn't believe how supportive everyone was! Levels of ability meant nothing when it came to smashing that move you wanted to do, even beginners ones! I remember being in awe, thinking no way could I pole in the tiny clothes the others were in, what if they laughed at me? Judged me? It's something I should never have even had to think of, not one person cares! In fact, the smaller and sexier the outfits I wore, the more they were complimented. There's nothing quite like going from a scared little caterpillar to an absolute glowing butterfly! Even after time off having a baby, and gaining weight and a lot more stretch marks, I knew I could come back to that safe, supportive space and re-gain the confidence that I once had and deserved!
So here's me the first time in 2018 attempting to take my leg off the pole (which was around about the time I took to even not wearing a tshirt), to now, being much more skimpy and releasing my inner diva with confidence. Every single person deserves that feeling, we just have to take the leap and transform into the beautiful butterfly we are. ❤️
Tracy's Pole Journey
I had followed the Butterfly Studio facebook page for a while and was amazed at some of the positions the ladies that attends got in to, but I always thought I was too old and unfit for that kind of class.
Until one day a competition went up on the Facebook page to win 4 beginner classes, I entered and was very shocked to win it, so thought I would give it a go.
Well I didn’t really know what to expect with any class but enjoyed the 1st one finding my way around the pole and was excited to see what the next class involved.
With every class I did not expect it to be so empowering with all the others in the class cheering me on.
I found changes in myself outwith the class too, it showed me you can do anything you put your mind to with the right people cheering you on to reach your goals.
My fitness has improved, my body shape and the way I carry myself too.
Being part of Butterfly has helped the way I feel about myself, every time I leave class, I know its challenging but when you achieve poses that you didn't think you would be fit enough for, you walk out with a glow 🥰
If you have been wanting to get started, my advice is: don’t leave it too long that you regret it, as I wished I had started sooner.
Sarah's Pole Journey
What made me want to start Pole? As a mum of 3 boys, you don't always get a lot of 'you' time. Something that is... just for you. I wanted that and I wanted it to be something different. I have never been a lover of the gym, the monotony it can bring and I've NEVER had that 'after gym high' that everyone seems to talk about.
So, I looked into alternative ways to exercise and that's when I came across Butterfly Studio and their love of all things pole!
It scared and excited me all at the same time. I was really nervous about even thinking about it so I went onto the site to do a bit of research.
That's when the chat popped up and I ended up talking with Jaime. I asked her a million and one questions, told her about my fears, my nerves and about my complicated mental health issues and she eased every single one of my concerns. She was so warm and spoke to me like we had all the time in the world. There was no pressure or pushing, it was 100% my decision to make.
I have always been on the big side and very self-conscious about my body. So, this was very much out my comfort zone but I wanted something that would not only help strengthen my body physically but also mentally. To help me gain some confidence and break down the barriers I had mentally about my body.
I can 110% say Butterfly Studio has given me that. When we get shown a move in class my instant reaction was always 'there is no way in hell I can do that!' But with the support of the staff and my ever-growing confidence, I am now in awe of what my body can do!
I really didn't have a clue what to expect. Jaime had taken so much time to guide me through the whole process and what a class looks like, but until I was actually standing there in my first class, I still don't think I knew what to expect.
I think I went into it thinking everyone will know what they're doing and I'll be the only one who doesn't, but Jaime guided me towards the Beginners only classes to start and that was amazing.
We all started from scratch together and it definitely eased my worries!
I didn't expect just how much warmth and support comes from, not only, the instructors but also the other members. They are all so encouraging, clap when you succeed, pick you up if you fall and are there to celebrate with you when you absolutely smash a move!
There is no judgement whatsoever and I think that's one of the biggest hurdles people face. They worry about what other people are going to say about them wearing their leggings, shorts, pole outfits or cheeky pants but I promise you, they have nothing but nice things to say! The staff and members encourage and empower you, no matter what you choose to wear.
Being part of Butterfly has 110% helped impact a positive direction in my life!It has shown me that I'm capable of things I never thought possible. It has shown me that I can step outside of my comfort zone and succeed at it. It continuously pushes my boundaries and strengthens me as I go. It's shown me I am strong, braver than I thought and that anything's possible!
Some recent reviews from our Beginners Courses:
"I absolutely loved the beginners course. Jaime pitched it perfectly to my level, making it challenging but achievable, and structured but fun! The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly in a beautiful setting. I feel very grateful that we have such a great facility as Butterfly Studio in Arbroath."
"When I started classes I was bit nervous beforehand. After my 1st class I was hooked. Jaime is incredible and all the girls are so supportive and encouraging. It’s my little safe haven and has really helped build my confidence and I’ve made some new friends along the way. I never thought I could do most of what I can now and it’s so rewarding to see the progress. I would completely recommend giving it a try."
“Had my first ever pole class with Jaime today. She is a brilliant instructor and made everyone feel right at home. Holds and spins were broken down into little steps and I left feeling great after being able to do most of them (not perfect yet, but better than I thought I'd be).
If you have considered doing pole before, this is a great studio to come to. No previous experience needed and you don't need to be fit to learn the moves (I know I'm not). Will definitely be going back!
“I did the beginners course after a bit of a dare and loved it so much I continued to come to classes. I'm not an exercise lover and get self conscious going to exercise classes or the gym. But with Pole Classes it’s different!! I WANT to go. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and the classes are fun. I never feel uncomfortable even with my wobbly bits on show! The classes have given me so much body confidence and iv discovered I can do more than what I ever thought.“
"The beginners course was amazing! My fears were allayed almost instantly and Jaime makes everyone feel welcome. Each move can be attempted in one form or another by everyone until confidence is built and it was amazing how quickly my confidence built up and I was attempting things I would never have thought possible. At a very tumultuous time of my life, this class helped me to remember that I am a strong women who can achieve all my goals with just a little effort"
