Two gold medals for Ross business owner
Ross-on-Wye business owner, Natalie Morgan-Dew, recently won two gold medals in pole fitness in the USA pole sport competitions.
Natalie owns Mizz twisted cherry studios in Ross-on-Wye, an aerial and alternative dance studio catering for ages 8-80 years. She teaches classes on aerial hoop, trapeze, silks, pole fitness, burlesque and bespoke equipment like aerial cube.
Natalie has been practicing pole fitness for 14 years and although she is a world champion in burlesque, she always found pole competitions intimated her. Natalie said: “I was pregnant during covid and got pregnant before Covid (November 2019) just after my world champion win so I had no idea that Covid even existed. Having to go to appointments on my own and having a few complications with my pregnancy took its toll on my mental health. I suffered with extreme health anxiety. After the birth of my beautiful son I suffered with post natal depression which was such a shock, as with my daughter I never suffered at all.
”I imagine Covid and an emergency c section exasperated it, and I was left feeling extremely low. pole has always been my therapy for my mental health and with more options to compete online due to the pandemic I thought I would give it a go as it gave me something to focus on. I entered pole sports in America and won two gold medals!
“Not only is this an amazing personal goal but advocates how great pole fitness is for both mind and body, which is the reason I set up my studio for people’s confidence, mental health and well-being.
“I feel extremely proud and lucky to beable to put Ross on the map and now all the way in America!”
