Pole and Aerial
Why Pole? Your first pole spin is magic! There is something special about dancing around a pole, doing tricks, letting loose, and having fun. Pole is a full body-workout that builds strength, flexibility and confidence. Rather than doing pull ups at the gym, you focus on executing pole tricks. As a result, tremendous strength is built. Pole is healing for injuries - natural traction and inversion therapy. The art empowers you to step into your bold, confident, radiant self!
Inspiration: I have a strong desire to bring pole to more people because I see and know its potential to empower and liberate.
Background: I am a Los Angeles based ACE/AFAA certified Group Fitness Instructor, XPERT Pole Fitness Master Trainer, teacher, and performer. I have performed and instructed private/group pole dance classes since 2009 and incorporate elements of strength, flexibility, and coordination from my diverse athletic experiences into pole instruction creating fun, challenging, and balanced pole dance workouts. I understand the importance of overall health and believe the art and sport of pole fitness to be a one of a kind experience for the mind, body and soul.
