pole & flexibility classes

​Sensual Flow

Pole Flow (all levels)

Pole flow is based on a fusion of dance technique, basic principles of pole dance and artistic interpretation of music and rhythm. We will work on coordination, pole tricks and transitions which will be put together into a dance routine.  The style of dance differs from ‘flowy’ & sensual  to quick and dynamic, or a mixture of both. This class is open for all levels (with experience), and concentrates on the fluidity of movement, musicality and performance.

 

All training are given in English / German

Heels Sensual Pole Flow

Sensual flow combines strong elements from Russian style pole, as well as slinky snake-like movements inspired by old-school “stripper style” pole dancing and belly dance. ​Here you can improve your flow on/off the pole, discover your inner Diva and also burn a few calories along the way 😉
Stripper High-heels (or socks instead) as well as knee pads are recommended.

Pole & flexibility classes

Flexibility & Strength

​Flexibility for Pole & Aeriel (all levels)

Pole dance and other similar Aerial arts (silks, hoop, rope, etc) require a good amount of range of motion (flexibility) as well as the strength to control it. Get your Splits and bendy back (injury free!), and improve overall mobility and stamina. Stretching regularly is highly recommended to prevent injury, increase your progress on the pole or your other apparatuses, and maintain a long term practice.


All levels welcome!

 

All training are given in English / German

Splits

We work systematically on opening our hips towards front splits and middle splits (box and straddles). The exercises in the class focus on opening of the hip flexors and psoas, the back of the legs – hamstrings and calves, as well as the groin.

 

The active stretches we use in the class help build up the strength as well as mobility required to hold some of the challenging splits’ figures on the pole. If you feel stuck with your leg flexibility up the pole, regular practice on a weekly basis can help significantly to get you into that pose you’ve been dreaming of!

 

All training are given in English / German

Backends

In this class we focus on opening the entire front body, working towards poses such as scorpion forearmstand, cheststands and wheel (full bridge). We move down through the body starting from the neck, shoulders, upper and middle back, and last but not least our hip flexors and psoas. We use active stretches to build up strength in the back body and core, to enable a strong and pain free practice.

 

Many Pole moves and shapes require a strong AND flexible back body, which can be challenging if we don’t train our back flexibility often enough. Similarly, much of the work we do on the pole takes a heavy strain on our shoulders and upper body, and can often leave us feeling stiff and in some cases even cause injury (if we don’t stretch enough, or stretch in the wrong way). Having a strong backbend practice will not only help us keep our shoulders, back and front hips open and healthy, but will also allow us to go into deep backbend shapes up on the pole – such as ballerina, superman, allegra and many (many) more!

 

All training are given in English / German

Full body stretch

Regular full body Stretching helps ease muscle pain and tension.We allow the body to find more mobility, increase the range of motion and prevent injuries and joint/muscle pain.


Indulge yourself with a one hour full body stretch session that will improve your muscles and tendons elasticity from head to toes, in the most comfortable and delicious way.

Maria

Maria has recently joined the PFB team as a pole dance instructor and is happy to share her passion with her students.

“I fell in love with movement when I experienced firsthand the mental and physical benefits of working out. In 2017 my passion drove me to start a Fitness and Health Youtube channel, which allowed me to broaden my knowledge through content creation and research. Curiosity kept me learning about new forms of movement until I finally tried Pole Dance in 2018, and I was hooked immediately. Imagine coming from a very repressive, conservative, chauvinistic country and suddenly stepping into a place where nobody is shamed, where sensuality is celebrated, diversity is honored, and also… people are STRONG AF!!! I was in awe!

Since that day, pole dancing has been helping me connect with my body, reject old belief systems and reframe my own ideas of sensuality, sexuality, and freedom.

I got the opportunity to become a teacher in 2021, and I feel blessed to provide that same safe and encouraging space for others to get stronger, shine bright, and enjoy movement.”

Trisha

Trisha is a professional pole dancer and teacher, originating from Bavaria and since 2022 based in Berlin.

‘’I started my dance journey as a kid taking ballet lessons. My ballet journey lasted roughly 10 years and built the base of my movement as of today. After all those years I got sick of the rigid rules of ballet and wished to explore more. After finding Daria Che on Instagram in 2018 I started taking pole lessons in Munich, where I was based. It started as a hobby but quickly with the love for pole turned into a profession.

Since then I have developed my skills in heels, spinning pole and static flow/ static rotation. I have taken classes with highly skilled trainers such as Estefania Jimenez, Marion Crampe, Lorenza Perrone and of course Daria Che as well. Now I am excited to share my knowledge with my students. I love to focus on details, instead of wild tricks and complicated shapes. I love to keep it playful yet clean and accurate, even with the most basic climbs. Let’s explore and play with the details. I can’t wait to dance with you!’’

Sabrina

Sabrina is a professional dancer, dance teacher and stretching and flexibility instructor. During her dance career she found a personal interest in working on flexibility and body posture. She began teaching stretching classes for dancers and non dancers in 2017 in Argentina and currently continues teaching and dancing in the city of Berlin.

‘’I believe that flexibility is something important for those who do sports, dance or for those who don’t do physical activity as well. Flexibility improves the quality of movement, prevents injuries and contractures. I believe that it is important to work on flexibility in an organic and unforced way. For pole dancers, the elasticity of the body can be a great tool to be able to perform figures and tricks in a fluid and tension-free way.’’

  • Professional dancer and classical dance teacher (School of Classical Dance from La Plata Argentina)
  • Stretching course by biomechanics method in Gurquel Alfred Institute (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Amissa

Amissa is a mover, performer and monkey at heart. They lived their early human-years always dancing and playing in youth theater groups.

Amissa’s love for pole dancing started when they just arrived in Berlin. After just the first class they were immediately in love. Now, they realize it has meant a lot more than just finding an amazing hobby. It also made them find their way back to dancing, performing, creating. It opened doors to a new world, such as the world of aerial arts and circus arts in general. Amissa is very driven to live their life exploring movement in its broadest sense. They are always eager to learn more and more!

As a teacher, Amissa is passionate to pass on what has brought them so much joy. Every class, the students should feel good about themselves. Creating a safe(r) and wholesome space is much more important than pushing students to do difficult tricks!
