Posing classes are individual. For group bookings, please inquire via www.yoanazhilkova.com/en
HOW DO I SAVE A DATE FOR A POSING CLASS?
Already with the purchase of the selected service/package, you also get access to the posing calendar. It is necessary to book a day and time convenient for you from the available free days in it within the term of your package. All this happens in your personal account, from where you control everything yourself.
HOW LONG IS A POSING CLASS?
The duration is 45 minutes for online and face-to-face posing classes.
WHERE ARE THE FACE-TO-FACE POSING CLASSES HELD?
FACE-TO-FACE/physical posing classes are currently only available in Sofia, Bulgaria. At the moment, they are held in the Titanium gym, Ivan Vazov. In the case of physical posing, the client pays entrance to the gym. Another location is possible by agreement.
WHERE ARE THE ONLINE POSING CLASSES HELD?
Various applications are used such as VIBER, WHATSAPP, INSTAGRAM, TEAMS, ZOOM, etc. The preference for the type of posing class is already stated when filling out the questionnaire. Online classes are an excellent choice if you are from another city or country.
HOW DOES A POSING CLASS GO?
Competition posing takes a lot of practice, whether you are experienced or not. It is important to know that besides the practical part there is also a lot of theory, but they go hand in hand in the process of learning and perfecting the posing routine. Based on a pre-filled questionnaire by you, I build a profile of you that shows me your level of experience and helps me create the most appropriate plan of action.
In our first online class, we go over the information from the questionnaire together, answer any additional questions that arise and start directly with the practical part. Posing is practice, otherwise it could not be mastered in any way!
DO YOU OFFER VIDEO LESSONS WITH POSING PRACTICE?
Video tutorials are in the process of being filmed. Expect this option soon for your training and progress in stage performance.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE BEST POSING CLASS FOR ME?
Each package has a description for who it is suitable for and what it includes. The length of the posing class is also an important factor depending on your level and the time you have available. However, if you still can't decide which package to choose, get in touch via www.yoanazhilkova.com/en
IS IT ENOUGH TO ATTEND POSING CLASSES ONLY TO LEARN POSING?
Attending posing classes is MANDATORY if you really want to develop professionally and be good and quality competitors. It is IMPORTANT to learn what is expected of you on stage and to be able to present yourself in the best possible way, because good posing can shoot you straight to the top. In competitive posing, in addition to working with a posing coach, independent practice is also necessary, so that at each of our next meetings, the posing routine is improved and we can upgrade the next levels of performance on stage. Self-practice is made up of pre-assigned tasks from me for you to improve and perfect your posing routine.
WHY SHOULD I UPLOAD POSING PHOTOS/VIDEOS TO MY ACCOUNT?
This is another great opportunity to upgrade and improve yourself. By sending me your videos/photos, you get feedback from me on how you're doing and what needs to be corrected and improved. Videos can include mandatory poses, transitions, i-walk/model walk, or a combination, and photos can include front and back poses and transitions.
HOW AND WHEN WILL I GET THE FEEDBACK ON MY POSING?
Feedback is received within 72 hours of sharing the video/photo on your profile on www.yoanazhilkova.com/en
Videos sent after the announced period of 30 calendar days will not be considered.
HOW MANY VIDEOS/PHOTOS CAN I UPLOAD ON MY PERSONAL PROFILE?
DO I HAVE TO HAVE COMPETITION SHOES BEFORE I START MY POSING TRAINING?
You don't have to have posing shoes to begin with. But at the first opportunity, buy so that the subsequent posing practice can be with them. It is important to get used to moving in the shoes you will be wearing on stage. When buying them at the last minute, there is a risk that they will not fit you, they will not be comfortable for you and you will not be able to walk properly, and what remains for the execution of the poses.
WHAT SHOULD BE THE DRESS FOR POSING?
Clothing is important here because all parts of the body need to be clearly visible while working on poses and movements. It is preferable to be dressed sporty with close-fitting clothes - for example, leggings + a top, the color does not matter, the important thing is that there are no pictures, drawings, various geometric shapes that hide the shapes of the body and even distort it. And the best choice is a swimsuit! If you don't include it at the beginning, then at a later stage (as the time gets closer to a scene) I recommend wearing a swimsuit during posing classes so that every pose, movement and every step can be tailored to your physique, built musculature , strengths/weaknesses and category criteria.
DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE IN A COMPETITION TO LEARN POSING?
Absolutely not! You don't have to be in competition preparation and have a schedule of upcoming competitions to train.
WHEN SHOULD I START POSING?
As early as possible, especially if you have already made the decision to compete. It is recommended to have a minimum of 3 months before the stage. But even if you start your posing practice at the last minute, we will work to bring out the best in your stage behavior as far as your capabilities and the remaining time before the stage allow.
CAN I SIGN UP FOR A POSING CLASS A MONTH BEFORE A COMPETITION?
Yes, you can start your posing practice at any time. However, keep in mind that in this particular case the deadline is too short and the end result may be unsatisfactory and there may be discrepancies in your expectations.
CAN I CHANGE THE TIME/DATE OF MY POSING CLASS?
This can be done by logging into your personal profile, going to Calendar and selecting a new date/time (if available) which must be within the term of the purchased package. Outside the period of 7 or 30 days, it is not possible to change the day/hour.
CAN I CANCEL MY POSING CLASS?
Yes, if this is done no later than 24 hours before your requested posing class and contact via app.yoanazhilkova.com
In case of non-compliance with the announced deadline, the posing class is lost, as well as the fee paid for it.
