As a television executive for BET Networks, Lea Walker knows the demands of a fast paced career. When her busy lifestyle took a toll on her health, the driven career maven found herself in the emergency room. Back and reproductive issues were revealed and the ensuing surgeries left her bedridden for weeks. Walker discovered that the surgery not only stripped her of her physical strength but also her sense of body confidence and power.
“My scars became a symbol of how my body had failed me. I came to the conclusion that maybe I needed to finally slow down and do something for me. My friend suggested a pole dance class; it looked fun, so what the heck?”
Not only was pole dancing great fun, but it restored her sense of “self.” From pole dancing she moved on to Aerial Yoga. The exercise led to her back pain subsiding and she was able to avoid additional surgery. Centered, confident, and reconnected, Walker wanted to share her new found empowerment and Aeriform Arts was born!
