We are opening the studio for classes from Monday, 31st August 2020!

For those unable to train with us in-studio, we will still be offering the option to book the following classes online:

Pole Power | Beginner Pole | Intermediate Pole | Flex & Bend

 

And the following classes will be available exclusively online:

Tuesday Power Flow | Friday Fundamentals

 

You will be able to book these separately on the booking portal. BUT please note that there will be no interaction or supervision from the instructor for those attending online via Zoom. As with all our online classes, you will have the option of attending “live” online or getting access to the recording after. However, the downloadable link is only available for 12 hours after the class ends. 

 

Below you’ll find a brief description of the classes that are available online.

FLEX & BEND: Tuesdays 17h40 & Saturdays 10h30 (Advanced) | Tuesdays 18h45 & Saturdays 11h40 (Beginner)

  • Flexibility training, building on strength and range of mobility using both active and static stretching techniques. We also work on flexy acrobatic tricks such as handstands, forearm/elbow stands, chest stands and needle scale training.  
  • Suitable for everyone including non-pole dancers. Our classes cater for different levels depending on the level of your flexibility training.   
  • What you will need (options as substitutes in brackets): a mat (towel, rug) + 2 yoga blocks (books, foam roller, firm pillows) + theraband (stockings, an old pair of leggings) + ankle weights (tinned food, a heavy clutch or small handbag, a full water bottle) 

FRIDAY FUNDAMENTALS: Fridays 12h00

  • Build an authentic, strong and safe yoga practice through meditative, stretch, strength and breath work combined in dynamic sequences. We will also be going through beginner inversions and balances in this class.
  • Open to all levels.
  • Please practise on a mat / towel.

BEG/INTERMEDIATE 1 POLE and INTERMEDIATE 1 POLE: Tuesdays 18h45 | Wednesdays 17h45

  • Building on the skills you learnt as a Beginner, you will learn more challenging spins, transitions, more complex techniques and explore a whole range of gravity-defying moves that require strength and grip on the pole.
  • What you will need: a pole is most definitely necessary. If desperate, find another pole-like structure in your home 😉

POLE POWER: Mondays & Thursdays 17h45 

  • Strength training, working towards a specific skill or body group. Mat work, wall work and bodyweight training. 
  • Suitable for everyone and all levels, including non-pole dancers.
  • What you will need: a mat (towel/rug as substitute) for ALL classes. And you may also need the following depending on the class: a towel / a wall / a couch / yoga blocks (books or toilet rolls as substitutes) / ankle weights (optional, not necessary)

POWER FLOW: Tuesdays 12h00

  • A blended flow of power yoga, strength conditioning and dance technique done all in one. This will be like a dance class, but with a focus on strength, power moves and transitions.
  • Suitable for everyone and all levels, including non-pole dancers.    
  • What you will need (options as substitutes in brackets): a mat (towel, rug) + long pants + a small space to move in. The following may not all be used in every session, but have them handy: yoga blocks (books) / theraband (stockings, an old pair of leggings) / weights (tinned food, a full water bottle) / a step or low chair / a wall or the back of a couch / kneepads.
