In the class students will go through a 20-30 min warm up/stretch on the mats with some yoga poses to help open up the hips, warm up the shoulders and core.
Then we will do sets of strength training exercises on the pole to build muscle for climbs and inverts which will also tone the body quickly.
This class is for all levels and beginners will be given modified versions of the exercises where more advanced students will also be challenged.
The last 30 minutes will be a guided open pole/freedance. Students can practice what they are currently working on as the instructor will come around and assist you with your current needs.
