The Wellness Side of Aerial Fitness: Soaring to New Heights

Engaging in aerial fitness, whether on the pole or in the silks, is not just a physical endeavour; it’s a just as much about the mind as it is the body. In this blog post, we’ll explore three wellness benefits that come with embracing the world of aerial fitness.

1. Mindful Movement and Concentration

It’s important to be focused and present when participating in aerial fitness. It’s not just for safety and awareness but allows one to think of nothing else and remain in the moment. It can create a unique opportunity to escape the stresses of daily life. It’s just you and the apparatus. The concentration required for those intricate moves and spins allows pole dancers and aerialists to enter a state of mindfulness.

2. Boosted Self-Esteem and Body Positivity

We all know that incredible feeling after finally nailing that move, right? It’s a time to cheer and clap for yourself and your fellow Belles. As you conquer new challenges and master those moves while building strength, be proud of that sense of accomplishment. You did it in your own skin and with your own skills!

3. Community Connection and Social Well-Being

At Brass Belles, we commit ourselves to our supportive and inclusive community of like-minded individuals. Building connections with fellow pole dancer and aerialists creates a sense of belonging, reducing feelings of isolation and contributing to overall social well-being. The shared experiences within the community can provide emotional support and encouragement. Not to mention long lasting memories with friends who know how great life upside down can be!


Aerial fitness is more than a physical workout; it’s a powerful tool for nurturing mental well-being. The unique combination of physical activity, mindfulness, and community engagement creates a holistic experience that benefits both body and mind. As you soar to new heights in your aerial fitness journey, remember that the mental health benefits are just as transformative as the physical ones.
