FKA Twigs is on something of an aerial-oriented fitness journey—and proving the unequivocal power of movement in the process.
The singer and performer took to Instagram today to share a self-facing video showcasing a smoothly executed martial arts move, the latest in the stream of workout-centric posts that have freckled her feed since Twigs revealed having undergone laparoscopic surgery last spring. The original announcement came in the company of a video of Twigs perfecting the art of pole dancing. Of the workout, Twigs said, “I felt like my strong self again for the first time in a while and it was magical,” and went on to thank her body for both its ability to heal and to remind her to be kind—and to create.
Considering that martial arts draws on focus and intention in addition to movement, the undertaking seems like a natural next step on a mission to celebrate the power of both body and mind. Strength, grace, and positive proof that continual renewal is not only possible, but essential? Consider Twigs’s feed a new, elevated brand of exercise inspo.
