Jo

CO-OWNER | Pole 101, Pole 301, Liquid Motion, Exotic Choreo, Rx Lab

 $50 Private / $85 Semi-Private

Jo started pole dancing in 2013 while living in Boston, and it was the best thing she ever did for her mental health. In 2014, she moved to Albuquerque and continued to train at local studios before finally deciding to open a pole studio of her own in 2020 with Irlanda.

While she has performed in showcases and events, Jo prefers to teach and loves being a forever student. She embraces a more grounded and exotic personal style full of slides, glides, and threads with the occasional flippy thing. 

Jo is X-pert and Liquid Motion certified, and her favorite things to teach are foundations for beginners as well as heelwork and exotic movement. She likes to describe herself as a pole "nerd" and considers pole to be that sweet spot between a workout, a dance party, and a puzzle.

Kylie

INSTRUCTOR | Polecology (VIRTUAL)

Kylie's teaching style is all about “ALIGNMENT.” Alignment in our bodies and alignment to our soul. It’s about unraveling, unfolding, back into our original forms - the carefree and unconditional loving soul.

In Kylie's classes healing modalities such as breath work, meditation, journaling, and fascia relief are utilized to re-align physical bodies, mental bodies, emotional bodies, and spiritual bodies. Her goal is not to teach students something new, but to reteach what they already know, that they are unstoppable and powerful beings! Students who are interested in advancing their pole practice in a path that leads from the heart need not look further.

Kylie is a certified yoga instructor, neuro-linguistic practitioner, and cognitive behavior coach, as well as currently studying to be a medicine coach /shaman.
