WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"DESERVES 10 STARS!"
Deserves 10 stars! The most amazing pole class. I joined as a fun one time class and ended up staying and learning until today - and by that I mean I went from barely holding myself up on the pole for 2 seconds, and getting dizzy with a spin to climbing the pole and inverting! The class is so fun, energetic and challenging (in a totally achievable way)! The teacher is so sweet and really makes it feel like a group effort where everyone is welcome, everyone helps each other and everyone has fun. You will really feel comfortable, no matter if you are a beginner or already had some pole spins before, you will completely fall in love with pole sport and this class, this class is not only good for your fitness, but mental health as well. Give it a try and come join us in class!
“THE CONFIDENCE I'VE GAINED IS INCOMPARABLE"
I'm been to 4 monday classes so far and I am HOOKED!! Akila is amazing and her classes are the main thing I look forward to each week. I was really nervous when I first started as I don't seem myself as being particularly strong but already in these 4 classes I feel like I've learnt so much and the confidence I've gained is incomparable to anything else I've done before. Also the community feel that Akila creates is one of my favourite things. All the girls are so supportive and encouraging and I've already made some friends!! Highly recommend =)
"EVERYONE CHEERS EACH OTHER ON AND HAS FUN TOGETHER"
After 4 years off the pole I decided to join Akila’s pole dancing classes. Ever since I’ve been hooked and really look forward to my lessons. The class is so fun and has a really girly vibe, with everyone cheering each other on and having fun together. I think Akila creates this environment by being so warm and friendly, and the most encouraging teacher I’ve ever met. She challenges you to try lots of new moves, pushes you until you get them and praises you so much along the way. There’s lots of variety and challenge but so much support. I would encourage anyone to come try it out because you definitely will want to come back!! Even if you come on your own as a complete beginner you will feel instantly comfortable and at home.
"I'VE FOUND MY POLE HOME!"
Akila is one of the loveliest people I have ever met. She makes every one feel so welcome and supports everyone so much. I have been to various pole studios in london and found them to be very 'cliquey' and the teachers didn't feel like they wanted to be there. Akila is the total opposite, she radiates this vibrant energy which is so contagious it just makes me everyone else so happy. I have been to three classes so far and I can finally say I've found my pole home. Thank you so much Akila!
I’d been looking for a pole fitness class to join for about a year before Akila Pole Studio came along. As a beginner I’d been put off others due to location, cost or the general vibe I got but Akila ticked all the boxes!! I’ve only been to 2 classes so far but I can honestly say I love it! Akila is an amazing teacher - her enthusiastic energy is contagious, her encouragement is priceless, and her effort to know every student and their capabilities makes all the difference.This class is full of fun and laughter, as well as some serious poling (!), with a group who cheer each other on week after week! The progress you see yourself making in such a short time is so rewarding, I genuinely leave the class on a high!
"ALL ABOUT RAISING CONFIDENCE AND FEMALE EMPOWERMENT!"
I look forward to my pole classes with Akila every week! She is amazing on and off the pole, and I quickly became great friends with her as she’s so easy to get along with. Her classes make me feel so comfortable and it’s nice to be able to make conversation and joke around/ be sassy sometimes. Her classes have such a positive vibe and she’s all about female empowerment and raising confidence. Her ability on the pole is amazing and gives you different moves and combos to work on and always pushes me to do more. Her classes range from spins, technique, inverting and some choreo, and will help you work on moves you want to master! Can’t recommend her enough! Soooo much fun xxx
"THE BEST FUN I'VE EVER HAD EXERCISING"
Pole classes at Akila Pole Studio are honestly the best fun I’ve ever had exercising. Akila is an absolute angel and so, so welcoming and lovely to every student, whether they’ve been coming since the beginning or are new to class that week. She’s an incredibly talented pole dancer but is really patient with those who take a little longer to grasp moves and will work with you for ages until you get it! She creates a really supportive and female-friendly environment and all the students are really lovely. If you want to do pole but feel a bit unsure or intimidated, don’t!
Come and join in the fun with us!
