Recently we asked our fellow polers about what they felt was holding them back in their pole practice. We received many responses - from strength related to confidence to pole techniques. One of the questions was on strengthening your air inverts also known as aerial inversion.
I know what you are probably thinking "A pic of Jane in regular clothing and she is NOT on a pole!"
Last night, I attended a fancy soiree in Toronto and I wore my favourite dress.. it had pockets!
Whenever I go to networking events, the typical question I receive is "what do you do for a living?".
Last night, I had the honour of performing with A Lyrical Affair at Burlington Performing Arts Centre. This cabaret show was a mix of singing, dance and celebrating their 10 years of this singing duo. I had a blast, loved it AND learned a valuable lesson…
And here we go!!
I Heart Pole Challenge 2019 is back!
It's been 3 years since we have had fun with this Instagram challenge!
This is a fun training challenge that we started back in 2016 and I'm thrilled to bring it back. It's great to check out and use as a training guide.
In between pole classes, I would turn to youtube for inspiration and dream of becoming a strong pole performer. I could invert and climb to a sit. I was hooked!
I would watch these two videos - over and over again - dissecting the moves. In all honesty, the sequence of moves are simple compared to the pole moves now…
It was a BIG weekend for PoleFit Nation at Canadian Pole Fitness Association - Toronto Pro Pole Supershow Competition.
Here are the results:
Christine and Elena were outstanding on the stage.
Elena's performance was strong and powerful. She has grown so much as a pole performer - this was her first ever pole performance!
Christine placed third in the Entry division - performed a clean, solid and confident performance. Well done!
I won my Division.. had so much fun on stage and happy to retire from Pole Competition (I've been competing since 2013) on a high. Very grateful for all our students and PFN Instructors support.

Yomna displayed wonderful performance skills and competed in a division of over 30 competitors! Talk about grace under pressure!
She received Best Flow Award (her choreography was outstanding) - she stood out from all the competitors!
Thank you for all the students and instructors who joined us this weekend - to come and cheer us on!
What a community of fantastic people!
Very proud of this weekend!
And now.. I rest and countdown to playing on the poles with you!
