Sports and Fitness
Physical activity, i.e. working out and doing sports were not things that were not part of my chassidish school curriculum. For me, changing from a fat chassidish boy to someone who understands a little how my body works and becoming stronger and more fit was incredibly empowering. I found a new community in doing partner acrobatics (acroyoga) which gave me a chance to explore touch and communication with the opposite sex in a non sexual space. In addition to enhancing my health and fitness, it also helped me immensely in my dating life!
