In yoga, asana generally refers to pose. Combining my love for both pole and yoga, and seeing how some poses are so similar on the mat and on the pole, I created the name Poleasana.
My name is Kimmy and welcome to my blog!
I took my first yoga class and pole class back in 2011. Prior to that, I was never into sports or physical activity. Actually, I would be the kid that’s picked last for highschool teams in gym class! Well, that all changed when I decided to make a positive change in my life.
As a university student, time and money were luxury concepts that I couldn’t afford. Despite loving yoga and pole, going to class was too expensive and took too much time out of my busy schedule. But I wasn’t going to give up on something I’m passionate about! After much contemplation, I splurged and bought my own dance pole, installed it in my room and began practicing on my own.
That is how my YouTube channel began. It was a personal diary to record the progress of my pole and yoga journey. I also began writing tips/common mistakes and sharing these videos on the blog, now known as Poleasana.
I really hope my personal journey can inspire you as well!
