Who is Barbell Dancer?
Jewels is a professional early childhood educator who is passionate about children's right to play-based, self-directed learning. When she’s not at work she leads a not-so-secret double life as a pole and lyra student and performer and enjoys trying to lift heavy weights and getting bendy. She is currently training as a meditation and mindfulness coach and will be starting her own business within the next six to eight months. Watch this space! When not poling, hooping, lifting or meditating, she likes to share her numerous opinions on anything and everything and surf the net for articles about history and politics.
Here I am! Jewels, the author, dancer, lifter, meditator and opinion-giver of Barbell Dancer, based in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been pole dancing and weight lifting since 2017, while lyra was a late addition that I started in January 2019. I’ve had too many opinions for my own good since I could talk (no, seriously, just ask my mum!) and meditation has been a part of my life since my late teens. Enjoy following my adventures here on Barbell Dancer! Leave a comment, check me out on Facebook, follow me on Instagram or subscribe to me on YouTube, I’d love to hear from you.
