WELCOME TO THE LOVE SHACK!
WHAT IS THE LOVE SHACK AND WHAT EXACTLY AM I IN FOR?
It’s a practice/class for your mind, body, and soul. We open with a guided meditation that lasts around 5-7 min. The mediation helps us get out of our own heads about our days, stresses, anything that goes on outside of The Love Shack and to connect to our authentic selves and be in the moment.
OK COOL, SO IS IT ACTUALLY A WORKOUT?
Sure is! The second part is movement. Most workouts are geared towards the masculine. Ours is very feminine; more circular and slow, which wakes up muscles we might not know we have! The circular and slow are very important to us. We want to feel the freedom to take up space. A lot of women, southern especially, have been taught to "keep it small", cross your legs, be a "good girl". And in this, some women have forgotten to celebrate who they are within their beautiful bodies! The language that we use during the movement is celebratory and empowering but NOT cheesy (you go girl! Your man's gonna love this!). While the movement is incredibly beautiful, it is what happens inside that is empowering.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING OR WEAR ANYTHING SPECIAL?
NOPE! Come in sweats, yoga pants or whatever you feel the most comfortable in. We have clean mats, pillows, etc. at your disposal.
IT'S SOUNDS COOL BUT I'M KINDA NERVOUS...I'VE NEVER DONE A WORKOUT CLASS LIKE THIS.
Fear not my sisters! There are no mirrors, it’s dimly lit, and you have the option of keeping your eyes closed, which helps you focus on being in the moment for yourself. It also gets a little sassy! This can be intimidating at first for some, but that has fallen away with every student we've had. We also have a pole, which is tricky anywhere when it comes to judgement. However, it is SO much FUN!!
WAIT. DID YOU SAY YOU HAVE A POLE?
Yup! We have a pole, and it is so much fun! The pole stirs up the feeling we got on the playground...that freedom. Freedom to be a monkey on the jungle gym, freedom to swing as high as we could on the swing set! It also wakes up muscles you didn't know you have and is available to women of all shapes and sizes. It’s such a safe space and an emotional release for many.
