Venus Pole and Fitness

Dahlia Florissant will be under new ownership beginning May 1st. Local heroes, Regina “Dark Angel” Sykes and Lenora Lovegood have taken on the task of studio ownership. The birth of Venus Pole & Fitness comes from a desire to create a studio representative of the beauty and power that women possess and harness. As Holly Merlot takes a step back in order to focus on returning to Dahlia’s roots inside Dudas Fitness in St. Peters, as well as allowing her the opportunity to continue to manage her family and household as her children get older, Venus Pole & Fitness will continue on the legacy of offering a safe space for women to pole dance in North County. Venus Pole & Fitness in St. Louis, Mo will continue to offer the pole dance classes that you have come to know and love.

Reiki Healing: Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Reiki can be administered to anyone at any time to promote healing, relaxation, and stress management. Reiki is administered by the therapist laying their hands upon a person in various hand positions to spread light and energy throughout the body. This allows for the energy or “life force” to flow through the body without any blockages or restrictions. This is based on the idea that if one’s life force energy is low, stagnant, or stale, then a person is more likely fall ill or feel stress more strongly. The same goes for the opposite, where if one’s life force energy is high, then a person will be more at peace, have better health, and feel more happiness. Reiki, when administered, can often feel like a warm, glowing radiance that flows through and around you as it treats your mind, body, emotions and spirit. $60/hour
