SO WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF POLE & AERIAL FITNESS?
Apart from the obvious increases to cardio vascular fitness you will become more flexible, better toned and more confident while learning a new skill at your own pace that is fun and inclusive. We believe that a good warm up as well as calisthenic conditioning are key to injury prevention. That is why every class & private lesson is started with an in depth warm up routine that includes Mobilisation, Pulse Raisers, Body Weight Conditioning Exercises & Dynamic Stretching, focusing on correcting posture & weak areas in the body. This method of Prehab focuses on strengthening the most common weak & tight muscles in the body as well as those that are predominantly used in Pole & Aerial. This approach is continued throughout the classes to ensure that you are strong enough to attempt the moves & tricks that are to be taught.
PIGGY POLE & AERIAL FITNESS ONLINE CLASSES
Piggy Pole & Aerial Fitness also now offer Online Classes via Zoom so that you can work on your strength & flexibility from the comfort of your own home!
In the Online Active Flexibility & Stretch Class we will work on increasing both active & passive flexibility in a safe way so that you not just flexible but also strong enough to do those bendy tricks, get those splits & have beautiful backbends.
The online Conditioning Class "Bulletproof Your Body" uses Resistance Bands to help you correct poor posture & reduce all those aches & pains so you feel better in your body!
Resistance Band Training is used for both Prehab & Rehab & is recommended by Physios all over!

POLE & AERIAL HOOP SYLLABUS

In our Pole Classes you will work through a Grade system which includes conditioning exercises & learning fundamental moves & skills to prepare you more challenging moves & combos further down the line. In our Aerial Hoop classes you will do the same but instead of working through Grades you will work through Sequences & Routines on the hoop to help you get to grips with transitions & flowing from one move to the next.
Progression is as unique as you are! Each student will take as long as they need to complete & progress through the Pole Syllabus.
