Whether you are a beginner or an expert, Instructors follow a weekly syllabus incorporating turns, lifts, tricks and combinations to gain strength, flexibility and self-confidence.

If you already have some prior experience with pole, please contact our studio, so that we can recommend the best level for you.

Note: Pole shorts are necessary. Please do not wear jewelry during the class; Rings, bracelets and necklaces cause irreparable damage to the poles. Do not apply oils or lotions to the skin prior to your class. They will make you slip off the pole.

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.
