Bruising/falls/injuries

When taking up any new sporting activity where friction occurs, some bruising and soreness may result. This is also possible when learning pole dancing/aerial hoop/stretch/yoga. You understand that pole dance/aerial hoop/ stretch classes can cause injuries.

Pole dancing/Aerial Hoop are a fantastic body workouts; however, most people find that it takes a couple of weeks for your body to adapt to supporting weight on parts of your body where you wouldn’t normally support weight, for example, the back of your knees, or the inside of your thighs. You will find you will ache from the first lesson but this feeling will go away after a few weeks.

I declare that being a student of GFFdamian I will worthily represent the School and I will not contribute to the creation of a bad reputation during the course and after its completion.
