I have been a part of Emily’s Pole Fitness for 4 years now and love being part of the EPF family. It's given me confidence, fitness, fun and unconditional support from a group of amazing instructors who I love and have the greatest respect for.

How to Book and Pay

To book yourself in to start silks classes, firstly contact us by emailing 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 a deposit of one lesson in advance by clicking on the PayPal button in the Book In section below. You do not need a PayPal account to pay for your classes – most credit and debit cards are accepted by the PayPal service. Your booking is not secure until your deposit is paid. 

All students need to pay a deposit in advance when booking in for the first time.

There are 3 different payment choices that you can make at the beginning or end of your first class at the studio:

  • Drop In Student – If you can’t attend a regular weekly class then you can email each time you would like to book in and you will always need to pay online using the PayPal button to secure your space.
  • Pay As You Go Student – If you would like to attend a regular weekly class then you can PAYG but you will always need to pay one lesson in advance. Your deposit is advance payment for your first lesson, at the end of your first class you will need to pay another £15 in cash or by card to secure your space for the following week. There are no PayPal weekly payment options. We take cash or card at the studio only for regular PAYG students. You’ll continue to pay one lesson cash / card in advance until you decide to stop classes (if you ever do want to stop!), and then your last lesson with us will be prepaid.
  • Pay Monthly Student – If you would like to attend a regular weekly class then you have the option to pay monthly at the studio in cash, card or online by BACS at the start of every month. There are no PayPal monthly payment options. If you choose to pay monthly then you will save £1 per class. All pay monthly students will still have to pay their deposit in advance which is technically your first class payment upfront. When you pay at the studio for the whole month, the first class of each month will still be included in your monthly payment. If you decide to stop lessons then you can use your deposit payment for your last lesson.

Notice period

We require at least 48 hours’ notice by email only ( if you can’t make a lesson or you forfeit your deposit / lesson payment. If we receive enough notice then your payment will simply roll over to the following week / month. Your deposit and monthly class payments are non-refundable. If you need to stop classes then we can hold any you have left for when you return.

About Lessons

Lessons begin with a fun dance / aerobic warm up, followed by learning to create beautiful poses using the fabric (see 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 for lessons.

These aerial silks classes are suitable for complete beginners! You don’t need to be able to climb or hold your own bodyweight to start with. The silks we use at Emily’s Pole Fitness are from Firetoys – made from a durable, ladder-resistant fabric, they are very strong and will not break. ANYONE can try silks – any size, any shape, any fitness!

Emily’s Pole Fitness has changed my life. I never thought that I would ever be able to achieve everything I have. The teachers are amazing and it’s a safe place for you to build your strength and body confidence. I hated my body and was at my lowest when I joined, but my whole outlook on myself has changed thanks too Emily and the girls. I feel like a whole different person, I feel sexy, I feel myself! Joining Emily’s Pole Fitness was the best decision of my life!

Private Lessons

Private lessons can be arranged with one of our instructors at a time convenient for you, as long as it doesn’t clash with a class that is already running. A private lesson costs £50 for an hour for one person, or £25 per person for two people or more, to be paid directly to the instructor you’d like to book in with.

To arrange a private lesson, get in touch and we’ll get back to you to arrange a mutually convenient time.

Silks / Circus Parties

You can have a group booking or circus party (aerial hoop / silks / both) for any occasion: work team building, birthday, hen do… anything you like!

A circus party is 60 – 90 minutes long (depending how many are in the party) and can be booked up to a maximum of 14 people. The price is £25 per person.

If you book a circus party, the studio can be decorated to suit your party and you will receive a certificate of attendance.

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.
