Krystal - Studio Spin instructor

What is your favorite thing to teach?
I love teaching inversions. It’s always such a hug confidence boost for students when they successfully pull off their first invert.

What kind of music is typically on your playlist?
I try to keep a variety of different types of music on my playlists. Up tempo dance, to mellow cool downs. I like to add tracks with female empowering vocals. 

Guilty Pleasure
Chai lattes and London fogs. I can’t get enough of the sweet warmth! Particularly from tiny cafes. 

Who would you fan girl over?
Christine McConnell. Her creations through food and other various mediums is always beyond astounding! She is the total package! Brains, pin up beauty, and a creator of superb art! 

Favorite quote
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the single candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

Krystal has been practicing aerial hoop and aerial yoga for over 5 years. She loves how it combines beauty and fitness together. Krystal started with hula hooping and decided to try aerial hoop after watching an aerial burlesque routine. It looked so fun and challenging. 

She has been teaching various classes at Studio Spin for a few years, including hula hooping, and beginner Silks and Lyra. Her current favorite trick that crosses both Silks/hoop is gazelle. Krystal aims to continue her aerial practices and find more time to dedicate to her own practice and training aside from instructing. Some of Krystal’s other interests include yoga, making and baking desserts (often chocolates), and glass fusion crafting.

What is your favorite thing to teach?
My Favorite thing to teach is floor work. You can’t beat getting to roll around on the ground.

How would you describe your teaching style?
My style of dance can be a combination of flowy and flirty/sexy movements. 

What kind of music is typically on your playlist?
My playlist is like a mixed tape, the genres may vary. There may be some booty shaking songs, slow and sexy ,a little top 40, Latin.. you name it!

Dream vacation spot 
I’ve always wanted to visit Greece!

Guilty pleasure
I love unwinding from the day with food/snacks (probably chocolate) and catching up on my tv shows.

Hannah began dancing at a young age. She pursued a B.S. in Dance at the University of Oregon and in her senior year, she was invited to join the U of O Repertory Dance Company, where they toured around to high schools performing and educating young students about college and different path ways to get an education. 

In 2015 she signed up for her first pole class and was instantly hooked. Hannah loved finding a fun activity that combines two passionate activities, dance and fitness. Not only can it be a great workout but it has helped Hannah build her confidence through exploring movement and expression. Shortly after, Hannah began teaching pole in 2016. She is thrilled to be joining Studio Spin’s team of instructors and cannot wait to gain new experiences with everyone in the pole community.

Hannah has worked to earn several certifications. Some of which include ElevatED 1 Pole Dance, Flexibility teaching, AFAA Group Trainer and NASM Personal Trainer certifications.

Ashley

Instructor

Ashley - Studio Spin Instructor

What is your favorite thing to teach?
Any kind of sensual or intuitive movement–like floorwork, freestyle or chair dance.

How would you describe your pole dance style?
Very sensual and slow. I love the feeling of really focusing on where my body wants to move in each moment and not feeling like I need to rush out of that sensation. 

What kind of music is typically on your playlist?
Sensual and dirty songs like Two Feet, Hozier, or Marian Hill or sometimes a little more tempo like Lizzo and Cardi-B. My playlists can be all over the place!

Guilty Pleasure
If we are talking food, I’d have to say blueberries and nutella! 

Who would you fan girl over?
Like a celebrity? I’m kind of obsessed with the band Pinegrove and also really love the work of the comedian Chris Gethard.

Favorite quote
“This picture will be my future before picture!” or “Slow down, deep breath, everything you’re feeling is natural.”

Ashley has been enjoying pole dancing since the summer of 2019 and has been participating in movement based activities since she was 8 years old. She completed the Studio Spin Instructor Training in the Fall of 2020. Her style of dance represents her love of embodiment and intuitive style movement. Turning off the noise in her brain and letting the music influence how her body wants to move in this moment. Being engulfed by the flow of feminine energy. 
Ashley loves encouraging others to find their own unique style of movement in a safe and open environment. 

Outside of the studio Ashley recently opened her own business in Lancaster where she practices Yoni Steaming, Feminine Embodiment Coaching, and Energy Based Healing. 

One piece of advice Ashley would give to those starting their pole journey is to let go of needing to do your dance like anyone else and feel in your body the flow that is right for you!
