Q & A’s

WHAT DO I WEAR?

Pole Class:  We recommend form fitting workout clothes that allow for easy movement.  You will be most comfortable in leggings, a tank top  and make sure you invest in some knee pads. Platform shoes are optional but allowed in Pole Level 2 and up, and sometimes encouraged for specific classes. Shorts are required for inversions (L3) and beyond as you will need to use your legs to climb, hold and hang!

Aerial Fitness: We recommend form fitting workout clothes that allow for easy movement.  Long/short sleeved t-shirt, leggings and socks are ideal.

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE?

Participants must be 18 years of age to join our programs.

DO I NEED TO BE REALLY FIT TO TRY IT OUT?

Absolutely not! Anyone with a great attitude and willingness to try can join our programs. Everyone is a beginner to start and remember: “you don’t have to be great to start but you must start to be great”.

I’M REALLY UNCOORDINATED, WILL I BE ABLE TO KEEP UP?

Our instructors are trained to take it nice and slow, making sure that you have lots of time and encouragement from the very beginning to get comfortable with our moves and techniques. Our series classes progress on a week to week basis and our boutique / open level dance + fitness classes are supplements that will help your body with the necessary conditioning needed for progression and more specific results such as flexibility, coordination, endurance and overall strength and confidence. 

THIS IS REALLY OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE, WILL I FIT IN?

One of the things we are most proud of at Our Haven is our inclusive community and the diversity of humans who form our community.  Nothing truly epic exists within our comfort zone right?  Trust us when we say….you will be glad you did!

WHAT ELSE SHOULD I BRING TO CLASS?

Water is normally all that is required but kneepads and legwarmers are strongly recommended.

OTHER NOTES

Please remove jewelry – rings, watches, bracelets that can scratch the poles and potentially harm you as well. Please also have your hands free of lotions or moisturizers as this affects your grip with the pole and also makes them harder to keep clean.
