Hun har fått forskningene sine på trykk i vitenskapelige tidsskrifter.

Bli med på et lærik og gratis seminar. Det er åpent for alle og passer fint for poleinstruktører/coacher som vil utvide sine kunnskaper, eller deg som bare vil lære mer om den vitenskapelige siden av pole dance. Påmelding her.

Seminaret holdes online via Google Hangouts eller Skype. Vi sender ut mer informasjon til din epost etterpå. Kun begrenset antall plasser. Presentasjonen skal være på engelsk.

Her er litt informasjon (på engelsk) om Joanna og hennes forskning:


Joanna is a PhD scholar at the University of Western Australia. As a dance and exercise scientist, she is interested in understanding the science of pole dancing as a form of physical activity. The overall aim of her research is to build foundation knowledge on the psychological (participation motives and outcomes), physiological (metabolic and cardiovascular demand, fitness and body composition changes) and injury-related characteristics of pole dancing. The outcomes of this research will assist in educating the community, health professionals and studio owners on the associated benefits, limitations and risks of pole dancing; plus serve as a platform for future research to be conducted in the areas of pole dancing psychology, physiology and injury prevention.

Joanna has worked in the fitness industry for over 15 years as a group fitness instructor, personal trainer, consultant, and presenter, including 6 years as the head lecturer at the Australian Institute of Fitness (Western Australia). She has also danced from a young age and in her early twenties discovered pole dancing. Since 2006 she has worn the hats of pole instructor, performer, competitor, studio manager, and sees herself as a lifelong student.
