In our May We Suggest series, we have been providing suggestions for classes based on your experience or time away from training. Today’s post is if you took a summer break (or more than a month away from your training).

When taking longer than a couple weeks off, it’s always best to go the conservative route when getting back into things. If you have taken Hoop or Pole, Fundamentals, we always suggest you repeat the last stage you took. This will get you back into the swing of things, will give you the opportunity to clean things up, recondition your skin and feel comfortable back on the apparatus. A great way to think about this is to use the class as more of a conditioning class than a class where you learn new things. Use discipline to enter and exit moves as perfectly as you can, hold poses for longer, and work on your artistry. All the extra strength and energy it takes to work on the little things will only benefit you tremendously in your next fundamental class. Here are a list of our Hoop and Pole Fundamentals:
