Aradia Goddess – Natriya


Aradia Goddess- Best pole dance studio in Nova Aradia Fitness Loudoun

Be A Goddess

We asked our Aradia Goddess a few questions, and here are her words

What is your favorite past time besides pole? 

My favorite past times and present are photography, knitting/crochet and always creating something or learning a new craft.

What do you love about pole dance aerial yoga 

I love that with both I find myself. I get to express myself with pole dance and move to musicals I choose. With aerial yoga, I am free to focus within and always feel supported and safe as I explore deeper stretching and mindfulness.

What is your favorite classes at Aradia?

My favorite classes at Aradia? Oh my, I have loved everything that I’ve tried. From aerial yoga to OG pole to sling to liquid motion to chair dances they are so much fun! Now whether my body agrees with me due to my knees or not is another thing!

What surprised you about pole fitness and aerial yoga?

The most surprising thing to me was the community. So much love and support for one another and bonding experiences are things I did not expect.

Why should someone join Aradia Fitness and start their pole journey today?

They should take the leap and just go for it. The worst that could happen is they will learn about themselves, find that goddess that may be hiding within, learn to love their bodies and find an incredibly supportive community.



Take the first step..come to a class at Aradia…allow your inner goddess to manifest.

Student Spotlight- One Year Anniversary

I am so proud to share our student spotlight today. It is moments like this that I cherish; for I remember the very first call I received from this now Aradia Goddess. In her voice I knew with certainity that she was clear about what she needed to do for her mind and body. I was equally aware of the slight fear of the unknown. I remember her first Intro to pole dance class with me, and how she waited with patience to get all her fears and questions answered. Every time I see her at the studio I feel a joy in my heart, I have seen her grow in her strength and confidence right before my eyes. She walks taller with proud shoulders, carries her body’s strength and embraces its sensuality with beauty, grace, and acceptance.

Aerial Yoga Aradia Goddess

Here is her experience in her words,

1/20/19 marked my 1 year anniversary stepping through the red door of Aradia Fitness Loudoun. After very little hesitation and an amazing phone call with Neelam (which i can remember vividly today), I strolled in excited to start and slightly nervous. What I’ve gained in the last year was much more than I ever imagined it to be; new sense of self love, empowerment, strength (that i never thought I’d get), and most importantly, the friendship with each of the ladies! Regardless of level, talent, size, or strength, everyone I’ve met has been unbelievably supportive and there is an out pour of love that fills the heart and soul. They are family to me! I’ve always wanted to be a dancer and Aradia Fitness Loudoun has brought that into fruition. I thank and love you all for helping me be a better me everyday!!

Words from Maya Angelou’s Poem come to my mind

It is in the reach of my Arms

The span of my hips

The stride of my step

The curve of my lips

I am a woman


Phenomenal woman

That’s me


Love and Light Always



Be Happy

Stop comparing yourself to others

How to be Happy

How to be Happy 🙂

Happiness seems so unattainable,  something to be found at the end of a rainbow. It would seem that we are chasing it forever quantifying it by “if I have this car” or “when I have this house.”
Have you considered: What is happiness? Go back in your memories and visit the time when you were happy. Is it just a fleeting moment of a sunset, or a cool breeze through your hair.
One of the surest way however to hijack happiness is when we compare ourselves to others. It is one of the easiest ways to feel bad about ourselves regardless of the parameter of comparison. Needless to say social media has made it too easy for comparisons to set in.
Comparison is the thief of Joy as Teddy Roosevelt said, whenever you feel the tentacles of comparison creeping closer think of all that you have accomplished. Be kind to yourself.

You are you that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
Dr. Seuss 🙂

As women I believe we are too hard on ourselves and so unforgiving of ourselves, We are too busy either seeing our own faults or comparing ourselves to others. Every once in a while we tend to fall in the same comparison trap while working on our skills at the studio.
Be mindful! When comparison starts rising, at that moment I want you to visit the very first time you walked around the pole, revisit that moment and acknowledge how far you have arrived since. Do not compare your current pole journey to someone else’s. All Aradia Goddesses need to be mindful of not attaching their self worth to anything or anyone, the moment we do that it ceases to be ours. Happiness is found when you stop comparing yourself to others. Choose to be happy. Focus on creating and being yourself, you are your own masterpiece.
Comparison is an act of violence against the self~ Iyanla Vanzant
