Twerking for Body Confidence
Hey GRRRL's Hey, it's Spunky. I've made it my mission to catch up with as many of you ladies who attended GRRRL Live as possible over the next few weeks! GRRRL Live meant many different things to each of us. We loved, we hugged, we cried but most of all we GREW. We grew so much we came home different. I know I did. That's sisterhood. That's what happens when you create a space for women to step out in freedom. It's a beautiful thing. I had the pleasure of catching up with Leslie Parker who opened up the first part of our Body Confidence workshop on day 2. Leslie Parker is the creator of the TWERKXING PROGRAMM she is also a fitness and boxing instructor. This woman possesses such incredible soul and energy. She's next level in the BADASS department! It was hard not to feel comfortable while attempting to shake my own ass! That says a lot because twerking and I were not friends before this workshop. Here's what Leslie had to say about her experience: "I had an incredible time in Vegas last weekend with all those amazing GRRRLS. I discovered a spirit where it's more about how can I use my difference as a strength. Where one doesn't judge the other because she doesn't answer to the society code about how a female body has to be to be great. During our workshop, I really enjoyed seeing freedom in all those women who had suffered with their appearance or body-weight. They really played the game. They were shameless and had a lot of fun. I love seeing happiness when I teach a class and I could feel a huge positive energy in the room during my workshop. Some of the girls came over to me at the end of my twerk & fitness class to tell me thanks! The energy with Yasmine and Iris was super cool. We motivated and supported each other. Our goal was to give our best to make the group feel comfortable. I could feel what we call "sisterhood" As a badass as I am, I’ve had a hard time with people in the past. But with these GRRRL's, I could really feel a support and a validation of our deep talent. We are all different. We all have a talent and this spirit helps highlight our greatness. I hope you will understand my text I'm French and I have to improve my English!! Big thanks to Kortney and her super team. Long life to GRRRL" Leslie Parker.
