Check out our newest Pole Dancing Heel Styles in our Online Boutique
We add new styles of pole dancing heels to our online boutique regularly. But here are are latest reviews of our new styles go pole dancing shoes. Cherry Blossom Studio offer heels from 5 inch to 10 inch! What other workout do you get to wear all of these beautiful heels in? This is makes it okay to spurge on heels since they are doing your body good🙃
Below are our thoughts of heel height and things to think about when choosing a shoe style that is right for you. Most dancers have a few different styles on hand so they don’t wear down there favourite shoes quickly. Usually professional pole dancers purchase a new pair each month since we are very rough on our heels. Proper care is needed such as proper cleaning and of course gluing. We recommend cutting the tip of the toe sole with an exit knife so it does pull open and so your shoes don’t talk.
Welcome to your newest addiction! These heels are the most popular! They are heel clack worthy, more comfortable because of a higher platform and not as much of an arch. You can get different styles such as a clear top or a patent one. Notice the arch difference compared to the 5 and 6 inch models.
The Pleaser Flamingos are the second most popular style amongst pole dancers and strippers. They have a higher platform making them more comfortable and a big bellied platform making heel clacks sound on point!
A little higher than the Flamingos we are working our way up. They recommend that you don’t walk in these…far…or at all. If you are doing a show up on the pole and floor work you aren’t touching the floor anyways 😉 These pole dancing heels look great in photo shoots!
Yoga has been popular for many for years and it’s here to stay. There are many different types of Yoga classes, but which one is best for you? Are you cross training and trying to achieve some personal goals? Here is a list of our favourite Yoga classes for increasing your flexibility for your Pole Fitness and Aerial classes. As we build or strength it is important to stretch and release tension to avoid injury. The more you stretch the less likely you will injure yourself! View Cherry Blossom Studio‘s schedule for upcoming Yoga classes.
Hatha yoga is a refers to any type of yoga that teaches physical postures. Nearly every type of yoga class taught in the West is hatha yoga. This is a great introduction class to basic yoga poses. You probably won’t work up a sweat in a hatha yoga class, but you should end up leaving class feeling longer, looser, and definatley more relaxed.
Restorative yoga is a great way to relax and soothe frayed nerves. Restorative classes use bolsters, blankets, and blocks to prop students in passive poses so the body can experience the many benefits of a pose without having to exert any effort. A good restorative class can be more rejuvenating than a nap. These is a great class to take at the end of a long day.
Vinyasa (pronounced “vin-yah-sah”) is a Sanskrit word for a phrase that roughly translates as “to place in a special way,” referring in hatha yoga to a sequence of poses. Vinyasa classes are known for their fluid, movement-intensive practices. Vinyasa instructors choreograph their classes to smoothly transition from pose to pose, and will often play music to keep things lively.
Aerial Yoga is a mix between aerials and Yoga, all body parts are forced to move and stretch. Students hang from a hammock as the instructor takes them through a series of stretches. Aerial yoga helps you to move more freely, with less effort, by counteracting gravity. Suspension in the air releases tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility and deepening your practice.
Everything you need to know while choosing your x-pole
So the day has finally come that you are choosing a x-pole to set up at your house. Here are some tips to keep in mind while choosing the right x-pole for you!
Choosing your x-pole is a personal choice that you should make depending on your poling requirements, personal preference, body chemistry, and pole experience. Get acquainted with different widths of poles at Cherry Blossom Studio to see what pole works best for you!
Choosing a Finish and Diameter
You’ll need to think about what kind of FINISH and DIAMETER you want to work with and where you will be setting up your pole.
Here are the finishes that you can choose from:
Silicone – similar to Chinese pole, can wear clothing, max grip. You won’t be able to do pole spins but more athletic lifts.
Powder Coated – good for sensitive skin, max grip
Brass – solid polished brass, high grip. Brass is a porous metal which can absorb the oils in your skin. Brass is a softer metal so expect a sticky grip but you will need to polish your brass pole to avoid discolouration.
The Titanium Gold pole is made of steel tubing then finished with Titanium Gold electronic plating to enhance grip. Titanium color does fade with use, however the grip remains the same regardless of some color fading.
Chrome – most popular, competition standard, regular grip
Chrome is the industry standard and most popular purchased finish. It is used in many studios and pole competitions. This pole is made of steel tubing then finished with Chromium plating. The chrome pole is also the most affordable pole finish.
Stainless Steel – weather resistant, best for sensitive skin, regular grip
The Steel pole is made of pure Steel tubing, with a high polish stainless finish. This is a very strong metal, is weather resistant, and is also best for those with sensitive/hypoallergenic skin.
40mm (1.5in) – slimmest, sleekest pole yet, great for small hands
45mm (1.75in) – most popular, great hand grip, industry & competition standard
48mm (1.89 in) – its a 40mm pole and becomes 48mm with silicone coating
50mm (2in) – original pole size
53mm (2.09 in) – its a 45mm pole and becomes 53mm with silicone coating
Choosing your type of x-pole
X-pole offers a static/spin pole called the x-pert or a static pole called the x-pole sport. While choosing your pole type keep in mind where you will be setting up, how much height yo have and what you intend to use it for.
If you don’t have a lot of room you may prefer to have a sport pole as the x-pert used for spin may not have enough space. X-pole also offers extensions if you need to increase the height of your pole.
If you have slanted, vaulted, cathedral style ceilings you can use our X-Pert poles. This can be done by purchasing a vaulted ceiling mount. Unfortunately, Sport poles do not have this option. We do not offer vaulted mounts for Sport poles.
