The Pole World in NZ
We've been in the pole world for so long that sometimes we forget that the vast majority of people outside of this world, have no idea what it is and the extent of it. This is often highlighted at hens parties when the same predictable line of questioning at the end of the event occurs - so do you run *classes* here?....And just *anyone* comes?.....Do you *perform*?.....*Wow* so there are competitions? All of the yes.
The pole world is huge. The culture is uplifting. The confidence is immense. So to those who aren't yet in the pole world: there are many studios in NZ, anyone and everyone goes, to a whole variety of classes, for a whole range of reasons and they get a whole heap out of it - confidence, strength, flexibility, sexy back, coordination, friendship, passion, creative outlet, fitness, emotional release/me time, mindset changes, body appreciation, knowledge, skills....and so much more. And you might catch the bug....and when you do, then you'll likely become immersed in all things pole like showcases, photoshoots, socials, workshops, pole camps (yes pole camps), or competitions. Check out some of NZ's events -
