About lessons
Lessons begin with a 10 minute fun dance / aerobic warm up, followed by learning tricks, poses and positions in the aerial hoop (like the ones in the video at the bottom of this page), then we finish with a cool down, consisting of stretches and strengthening exercises. Please read the FAQs to find out what is suitable to wear during lessons.

Aerial hoop does take a lot of upper body strength, but complete beginners are always welcome! Very few people start out with the upper body strength to lift themselves easily into the hoop, but you will build up your strength over time, learning tricks and poses step-by-step. Whatever your ability level, the instructor will be able to help you get into the hoop and start achieving things you never thought you could!

How to book and pay

To book yourself in to start hoop classes, firstly contact us to see if there is space at your level. If you wish to start in a class above beginner level, please give a little bit of detail about your aerial experience when you send your message. Emily or one of her team will get back to you to book you in at the right level.

Once you are booked in, you need to pay to secure your space – bookings are not secure until paid for. If you are booking in for a 4 week course, you can pay in advanced for all 4 lessons at once to save money. If you can't commit to all 4 lessons in a course, you can use the single lesson button to pay individually for the sessions you can attend. Please use the PayPal buttons under 'Booking In'. You do not need a PayPal account to pay your deposit – most credit and debit cards are accepted by the PayPal service.
Booking in
Please use one of the buttons below to secure your booking in aerial hoop classes.
Sunday: Full 4-week course (£56)
Please note: NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES. If you can no longer make it to a class after booking the course then you do not receive a refund and cannot attend a different class instead.
Sunday: Drop-in lesson (£15)
Please note: Please always email first to check availability – classes can fill up so we cannot guarantee there will be space available if you just turn up on the day.
Monday / Wednesday: Mixed ability lesson (£14)
Please note: Lessons must be paid for in advance. Payments for these midweek classes follow the same policy as pole payments – you pay on the day to secure your space for the next session you want to attend, and can book out with 48 hours' notice as usual.
Parties and privates

Hoop / circus parties

A party at Emily's Pole Fitness is a private session where you and your friends will have the instructor's whole attention. Sessions are between 70 and 90 minutes long, depending on how many people are attending. The price is £25 per person, and a 2-person deposit (£50) is required to secure the booking. The studio will be decorated for you. Your session will begin with a fun warm up, you will then get to know the equipment, and learn some moves suitable for complete beginners with plenty of photo opportunities. At the end, all participants will receive a certificate. Ideal for hen parties, birthdays, work dos and all other celebrations!

Contact us to enquire about booking. When Emily has confirmed a date and time with you, please use the Paypal button below to pay your 2-person deposit (£50) to secure your booking.
What type of party?

Private lessons

Private lessons can be arranged with Emily, Leah, Mel or Azaria at a time convenient for you, as long as it doesn't clash with a class that is already running. A private lesson costs £45 for an hour for one person, or £22.50 per person for two people or more, to be paid in cash directly to the instructor at the beginning of your lesson, or via Paypal in advance if you are a new student. To arrange a private lesson, get in touch and we'll get back to you to arrange a mutually convenient time. Once the time has been arranged, please use the button below to pay for your session and secure the booking.
