Phuket Workshop Retreat: Week 2

Let us answer your Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend being able to invert to join as a minimum – we will split the groups roughly into the following (feel free to send us your Instagram handle with some recent videos if you are unsure still)

Inter/ Pre-Adv group: should be able to invert from the ground (inside & outside leg hangs), brass monkey, maybe working on jade, maybe working toward Aysha and handsprings/ working on shoulder mounts/ aerial inverts.

If you can handspring & Aysha VERY comfortably and aerial shoulder mount comfortably – you should consider joining the Advanced group.

Advanced: should be comfortably inverting aerially (ie aerial shoulder mounts), and handspring/ Aysha from the ground – might be working on aerial deadlifts and other higher level tricks such as flips or more extreme and advanced moves such as dynamic spins (Phoenix) or flexy moves such as BoP/ Deville/ Pegasus. You do not need to be able to do these moves or be a flexy person to join this group – join this group for a more advanced challenging retreat experience.

Pro/Elite group: high level professional group geared toward international competitors and instructors. You are comfortable with aerial deadlifts and basic flips, can do at least one Phoenix and maybe already do some of the extreme tricks or are working on perfecting things such as Fonji, Flic Flac, Bird of Paradise, Broken Split, Eagle, Rainbow (you do not need to be both a contortion and power poler to join this group but this is the level across the board – we understand some people will not do both Rainbow and Flic Flac!) If you are a professional competitor or high level instructor this should be the group for you (our instructors will work a wide range of elite tricks – not everyone is expected to do all the types of tricks if you prefer flips to flexy tricks for example).  Options will be given.

There are no pre-requisites to join the instructor training camp although as this camp covers all three levels right up to Advanced, we recommend you are of a High Intermediate/ Pre-Advanced level to get the most out of it. You don’t need to do all the tricks in the Advanced course as the focus is on learning to break them down and deliver the technique points using numerous teaching methods (not just demonstration). You will need to demo just two Advanced tricks during your practical teaching assessment, some of the choices include: Aysha/ Elbow Aysha/ aerial shoulder mount/ Deville and handsprings (you don’t have to Fonji or Russian Split don’t worry!)

Contact the hotel directly HERE to book additional nights at the special pole retreat rates. Alternatively, why not stay in central Phuket or Patong Beach for one night before and move up to the Ayara on the day camp starts? You could even stay in bustling crazy Bangkok and just fly down mid-morning on Day 1 (it’s only 1hr 20mins flight).

No! We have ‘No Accommodation’ packages available for those wishing to book their own hotels or for local residents and the hotel shuttle will be available to pick you up from Kamala Beach (free every other hour, or THB 150 for other times). 

Kamala Beach Hotels are between 5-10mins drive away in a taxi or on the RESORT SHUTTLE.

Examples:

  • B Happy Resort Kamala = $47 AUD per room per night for a premium bungalow – our student mentioned it was basic but all she needed and super cheap! (there are options for less and for more here too)
  • Kamala Resort & Spa = depending on time of booking they have offers between $80 – $140 AUD per room per night for a studio room. Our student that stayed here loved it, and would totally stay here again she said!

Yes! Book your spot in a twin or triple and we will match you with room mates – you don’t have to book a single if coming alone! Just be aware that if your room type is not available toward the end based on the numbers of people you may need to upgrade (for example if you booked a triple but there’s only one roomie left you will need to be upgrade to a twin) So get in early to make sure you get paired up with roomies in your chosen option if you want to room share with people that are not travelling with you.
