If you’re looking for new creative and fun ways to keep fit, try pole dancing from home. In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it is easy to neglect our health and fitness. StudioVeena offers easy-to-use instructional videos in the sport of pole dancing covering all levels from newbie to basic to advanced.
But is it worth it? Here’s a few pros & cons
- Great for those completely new to pole dancing
- New lessons added regularly
- Go own pace way of teaching
- Expensive in comparison to 123poling.com
- Lacks lessons from other more experienced dancers
- The mobile app has some technical glitches that need to be ironed out such as not loading all content correctly
- More focus on technical aspects and less focus on the dance aspect
- Support is much to be desired
- Buggy and broken platform
- Hard to navigate through the lessons and easy to get lost
“Be Fit. Be Sexy. Be Confident.” These are the words that sum up what pole dancing has to offer you in a nutshell. Fitness doesn’t have to be boring. As a competitor to other well known online platforms, StudioVeena.com was a good platform for beginners, but now, with more programs like 123poling & Open Dance Academy beginner to professional learning curriculums and starring competitive pole dancers and professional teachers you get better value.
Veena’s Online program offers a good base level for learning. According to here website, Veena, is a certified personal trainer turned pole dancer.
As a mother herself she understands the demands on time, and how the gym can be difficult when your juggling schedules with work, kids and fitness. She has kept her body in top shape and depending on your needs may be the perfect role model to those who are trying to lose post-pregnancy weight and get back into shape again.
What Does Veena Teach
Various fitness exercises on the pole, like Conditioning exercises, videos that prepare your body for the movements on the pole while decreasing the risk of injury along with tips on moves that may be more challenging as you build up your experience.
All lessons are sometimes neatly, categorized by level, however its easy to get lost and overwhelmed. The site has its own bugs and can be hard to navigate at times.
How much does it cost?
StudioVeena offers a free 3-day trial for new members after which you can subscribe for a monthly fee of $20 ($240 for the year) which is pricier in comparison to the other programs offering more experience and valuable learning time for your dollar.
Alternatively, you can opt to pay annually at a discounted rate of $99, which may make more sense, however with the sizeable community, there may be a lack in support which may make you feel like your progression is stagnating, something to think about.
There is no joining fee and a few free lessons thrown into the mix.
Who is Studio Veena For?
StudioVeena is a good starting point for anyone looking to start pole dancing. Veena is the only instructor on the site so there is no chance of confusion relating to style etc. versus other sites which have a variety of talent from pros to competing dancers.
I feel that Veena has made a relatable program for those looking to get back into shape after having a baby. And if you are into fun times of the year like Christmas, Halloween and etc then expect her to dress up in costume and show you a few tidbits on the pole and follow along with her social media challenges like #elfonthepole and that will surely get you into the spirit.
All-in-all StudioVeena is a fair option for beginners, but I feel it lacks intermediate and higher levels of learning and progression. If you are looking for a fun and easy way to get started into pole dance and lose a few lb’s and maybe even connect with some of the members on her site. But if you are looking to get a boost in your pole skills from the best pole dancers in the world from A to Z then there are more comprehensive programs available.
