My name is Yulia Lo Bosco – I’m a Russian national but have lived in Germany for 17 years before moving to Mauritius in 2017, I speak Russian, German and English – I also know how to say “point your toes” in French 🙂 I started pole fitness in 2012 and I’m passionate about it! I had always been a gym addict but was amazed at how this new exercise improved my strength, body tone and flexibility – and it was fun to do!
I spent all my spare time poling, at first attending studios in Cologne Germany, then I bought my first titanium pole and later my beloved powder coated pink 40mm X pole. I realised it was my passion and wanted to instruct so I enrolled for the only worldwide recognised XPERT Pole and Aerial Fitness course in 2017 which is the recognised instructor accreditation. A move to Mauritius later in the year gave me the opportunity to establish my own pole studio which is a dream realised. In early 2018 I completed Basic Pole Acrobatics teacher training by Kristina Dumanskaya, the judge of the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) and later in the year I completed the Advanced Pole Acrobatics teaching course. I opened my first studio in Beau Bassin in May 2018 (Studio Centre). Later in 2019 I completed 3 more teaching courses: Stretching and Flexibility instructor course, Improvisation course and Exotic Dance course. In March 2018 I opened my second studio – Studio West in Black River.
As a certified polefitness instructor I teach with passion, using my skills and knowledge and a genuine desire to share the joy of this wonderful sport. I am a master of safe ways to teach, avoiding injuries, and using my own training experience of the last 6 years. I have an in depth knowledge of spotting techniques and the skills necessary to ensure participants of all fitness levels experience a safe and effective workout in my classes. This means that I can accurately assess your progress and rapidly correct and improve your technique, facilitating faster results. It’s a real pleasure to see my students develop and progress.
