Pole and Aerial Small Group Fitness Studio

Chair Dance Cabaret


This class is taught by:

Jyoti Mahajan

Pole Dancing Instructor

Jyoti started pole dancing lessons in 2013.  When she started, she thought she would only go up to level 3 then stop.  However, after her first lesson she was hooked.  Jyoti became and instructor in 2014 and takes great joy in teaching new pole dancers. 

Natalia Skomorowski

Guest Instructor

Natalia had been dancing since she was three years old and has sustained her love of expression through movement and music all her life. She has also trained in gymnastics, weightlifting, and more recently, aerial circus arts. Pole is now her passion and she is very excited to help others reach their goals and point their toes!
 
Natalia was formerly the Lead Instructor and Pole Program Director at Brass Butterflies.  She has since moved out West to follow her career in engineering, but Kitchener is her family's home and we're lucky to have her back again this holiday season, if just for a short visit.  

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, certified Pole Instructor through the Canadian Pole Fitness Association, and has completed instructor specific training with the Aradia Fitness Canada, YogaFit Canada, and the US Pole Sport Federation, just to name a few. She also holds as Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and a Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) from McMaster University.

 

Megan Pollock

Pole, Chair Dancing, Fitness Class Instructor

Megan started taking pole dancing lessons in March 2014. Previously, she had tried a few classes at Ottawa Pole Fitness, and couldn't wait to try it again when a friend told her about our studio. Back then, she couldn't lift her body weight, and was terrified at the thought of going upside down! Now, 2 years later, she has performed in 2 troupe routines and had one solo performance in studio showcases. She also competed with a group in the Great White North Pole Competition in June 2015.

In summer 2014, Megan started taking the Burlesque Chair Fit Cabaret class, and instantly loved it! She loves learning new choreography to all different types of music, and also enjoys the fact that the class doesn't feel like exercise, but you still get a great workout. She took over the class in September 2015, and has recently discovered her passion for creating new and interesting chair choreography of her own. She even got to try her hand at pole choreography with the beginner/ intermediate troupe at the 2015 Halloween Showcase!

Megan can't wait to share her enthusiasm and sense of humour with her current and future classes!

Get a full body workout in this fabulously fun and sassy class. We'll start each class with a warm-up followed by some intensive toning and sculpting using the chair as a prop. In the second part of class your instructor will teach some fun chair choreography to a different song each class.
