Pole and Aerial Small Group Fitness Studio

Advanced Pole


This class is taught by:

Heather Poulin

Owner, General Manager, Instructor

Heather has been pole dancing since April 2010.  Married mom of two, she started taking lessons at a studio in her hometown of Oakville when she was 35 years old.  In her first year of pole dancing she fell head over heels in love with pole dancing and alternative group fitness.  Pole inspired her to make healthy changes to her lifestyle.  She lost more than 50lbs that first year, but, more importantly, she regained confidence she had lost in her journey into motherhood and reconnected with her sensual side, learning to love her body again.  She became an instructor at the Oakville studio after just a year, also starting down the road to certification in yoga and other group fitness. After becoming an instructor, she even designed some non-pole fitness classes that were incorporated into the studio's drop-in program.

In the fall of 2012, the opportunity presented itself to purchase her own studio in Kitchener and she took the leap into entrepreneurship, moving her family to the Waterloo region the following year.  The years since then have been an incredible journey.  She loves all the amazing people she meets every single day in this business, be they students, instructors, suppliers or fellow entrepreneurs.   She loves introducing new students to Pole Dancing, Aerial Arts, and general fitness, and nurturing the incredible community that has developed in our studio.

 

Heather is a certified Fitness Instructor Specialist with CanFit Pro and has done instructor specific training with the Canadian Pole Fitness Association, Aradia Fitness Canada, YogaFit Canada, just to name a few. She also holds as BA and an MBA from McMaster University.

 

Katie O'Neill

Pole Dancing Instructor
 
Katie was inspired to take her first pole dancing lesson in 2012, after watching a performance by Jenyne Butterfly. She is constantly pushed to improve her grace and strength by everyone in the pole community. As an instructor she enjoys having fun in class, and helping students reach their goals. One of her favourite spins is called the pretzel, however, she does not share the same love for the food pretzel. Katie hopes to help her students achieve the same confidence and strength that pole dancing provides her.
Students should now be comfortable with Extended Butterfly and will begin learning even more advanced variations on this beautiful move. Aerial Inversions, Shoulder Mount, Helicopter, Superman and Hip Holds, Cupid, Figurehead, Genevieve, Dove, Shooting Star and Half Jade are just a few of the moves you will learn in this level.
