Classes target either specific muscle groups or overall flexibility and balance. Each move is explained and alternatives (easier and hard options) are given in order to challenge and stimulate every student.

The White Studio also runs pole fitness individual classes and courses. They, too, can be hosted by another gym or fitness centre.

 

If you would like your Studio or Gym to host The White Studio’s workshop, please get in touch.

New venue for The White Studio

BREAKING NEWS — BREAKING NEWS — BREAKING NEWS

We have managed to get our first permanent venue in Bedford. A beautiful, Victorian building houses the large studio on Harpur Street. There are loos, a kitchen, and even a bar area for our students. Moreover, private free parking, as well as free parking on the street after 6pm, is included in the lease.

Monday 20 November is the moving date. As we have virtually exclusive use of the studio, we have added daytime and evening classes as well as private slots (1-2-1s and 2-2-1s) for both pole fitness and flexibility wheel lessons.

 

 

The White Studio expands in Bedfordshire

  • Big success for flexibility yoga wheel manufacturer’s fitness group classes
  • More venues, more classes
  • Fully-qualified instructors for disciplines from contemporary dance to pole fitness

29 June 2017, UK – British wellbeing hub The White Studio expands by adding new classes and new venues to its schedule, just two months after its launch in Bedford, UK.

As well as holding classes at Bedford College and Trinity Arts & Leisure, The White Studio has just started new courses at Bedford Academy. Further expansion is planned to include nearby towns.

“We have been pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming response and demand by students from all walks of life,” The White Studio founder and fully qualified pole fitness instructor at Advanced Level, Angie Voluti, explains. “Therefore, we are adding new venue and class options less than two months after launch: our combination of pole fitness classes, contemporary dance, and flexibility wheel courses makes The White Studio unique on the market, as it offers its students a huge (yet intertwined) range of physical development options at all levels.”      

Business partner, RAD and ISTD Advanced Level certificate holder and graduate in Dance and Professional Practice, Amelia Davie, in charge of contemporary dance, floor-work and free-flow classes, adds: “The White Studio appeals to all those who seek a fun way to keep fit, as our classes are dynamic, stimulating and never boring. Moreover, unlike some gyms and mono-discipline studios, we attract ladies of all ages and fitness levels, and all our students have progressed at unbelievable speed, thanks to our combined experience in training using novel techniques.”

New classes take place on Mondays at Bedford Academy, and Tuesdays at Bedford College/Trinity Arts & Leisure. For more information or bookings, contact The White Studio Amelia Davie or Angie Voluti on 07491 800 919, or visit www.facebook.com/thewhitestudiolife.

Pole fitness classes

Fitness hub ‘The White Studio’ launches in Bedford

  • Flexibility yoga wheel manufacturer starts fitness group classes
  • Bedford College Dance Studio was chosen as the ideal class venue
  • Fully-qualified business partners cover disciplines from contemporary dance to pole fitness

 

MAY 2017, BEDFORDSHIRE UK – British wellbeing hub The White Studio announces the launch of its fitness classes in Bedford; courses and sessions are held weekly at Bedford College Dance Studio.

 

The White Studio is the first and only European business to manufacture bespoke flexibility yoga wheels in natural, sustainable materials and to the user’s specification, and has just chosen Bedford as the first of the cities in which to hold its flexibility, dance and pole fitness courses.

 

“We started producing the only UK-made wood and cork flexibility yoga wheels last year, and it became immediately apparent that there were no classes focused on the use of such a tool,” says The White Studio Principal Angie Voluti. “We decided to create a course to teach students who wish to increase their flexibility and improve their fitness how the flexibility wheel can help.”

 

Business partner Amelia Davie is in charge of contemporary dance, floor-work and free-flow classes. RAD and ISTD multiple-certificate holder at Advanced Level and a graduate in Dance and Professional Practice, Ba (Hons), 26-year-old Amelia also has a PGCE in Education and has enjoyed a meteoric rise in her career as a qualified teacher and Personal Tutor.

 

“I am totally focused on dance as a way to express one’s feelings and relationship with one’s body,” says Amelia. “I have been professionally trained to share that passion, and our classes are the perfect conduit.”

 

Fifty-two-year old Angie Voluti is a fully qualified pole fitness instructor at Advanced Level. “I started pole fitness a couple of years ago; following for this sport has increased exponentially over the last few years, and it is a fantastic way to keep fit, whilst having fun,” she explained. “Age is not a barrier, and I am living proof of that!”

 

Bedford classes take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Bedford College, Dance Studio, between 6.30pm and 8.30pm. For more information or bookings, contact The White Studio Amelia Davie or Angie Voluti on 07491 800 919, or visit www.facebook.com/thewhitestudiolife.
