Pole Sport: Self-Practice
We want our students to be the best they can be and to practice as often as possible, but we know from experience that finding space for a Pole or Barre at home can be a challenge - especially in Auckland! This is why we are offering times where clients are welcome to come in and use the equipment, stretch, do stretching training, or practice for a show or competition. There will be an instructor available to help you or spot you. Please be aware that your practice has to be safe for you and the people around you. Practice sessions are supervised, but we strongly encourage you to stick to exercises according to your level.

Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. The practice of linking breath and movement to flow through postures invites us into an expression that is sometimes missing in other forms of the practice. It celebrates the experience of being alive, connected and interdependent.
You won’t stay long in each pose and the pace can be quick, so be prepared for your heart rate to rise. You'll finish the class feeling fresh and energized.
