Pole fitness serves as Polesque Vixens's signature class, teaching the basics of spinning and climbing the pole through exercises that engage muscles throughout the body. As they get more experienced, students can move on to specialized sessions that focus on more challenging spins or inversions. Outside of fitness classes, the studio also hosts parties to celebrate special occasions and photo shoots that allow students to document their alluring moves without the strain of lengthy portrait-painting sessions.
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is a form of empowerment as opposed to control. James Rightmire, CCH, relies on his extensive experience as he helps clients make positive changes in their lives through conscious choice as opposed to trance-like suggestion. This is possible because of the simple fact that the therapist never takes control of a client's mind during a session. Instead, hypnotherapy involves a combination of physical relaxation and professional guidance that leads to changes in brain-wave patterns, which allows clients to use the full power of their subconscious mind to make decisions motivated by a strong, conscious desire for self-improvement. Hypnosis is a merely a tool that empowers people to follow through with their convictions and make positive life changes, such as stopping smoking, controlling eating habits, or ceasing other addictive behaviors.
