I know I need to get better at attending practices but when I do I struggle with knowing what to do. There is a wide variety of practice class options each week and if you are anything like me you need to get better at attending them.
You may be wondering what the difference is between them and you aren’t sure which to attend. There are 4 options: beginner pole practice, semi private practice, pole practice, and pole/aerial practice.
Beginner pole practice takes place when there is a beginner class going on so if you are new to pole this is a perfect opportunity for you to review! You can attend the practice and follow along with the class! This will help with remembering the moves and knowing what to work on!
Semi private practices can take place at the same time as any level class. If you are at least the same level as the pole class feel free to follow along with the pole class! If you aren’t just remember that the instructor is teaching that pole class and they are not available to assist you with any questions.
The last two options are fairly similar. One is a pole only practice and the other gives you a chance to review things you have learned in silks, hammock, or hoop! Instructors are available during these two options for questions or spotting! Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
So what do you do when you attend a practice? It’s so hard not to be distracted by some of the things the other amazing women are working on. One of the things you can try is making a game plan ahead of time. Make a list of all the moves you want to work on and make sure you add in some conditioning! While you are at practice grab your card and fill it out!! If you are in upper levels maybe go back to beginner/intermediate cards and fill them out!
At the end of the day the practice you attend is for you! To help you in your journey so use them!
