Meet the Poler's Cove Sirens


Somer Ahonen

Owner and Instructor 

I’ve been a pole instructor for over 12 years and I adore teaching all levels.

 My dream to open a studio was so much more than showing others how to swing around a pole.... so much more.

It’s so rewarding sharing movement that lights a spark in everyone


We make friends, we climb over walls or up poles in this case.... we get stronger but most importantly the body awareness that comes through these movements creates self confidence and self love.


I am a wife and a mother, first and always.  I love spending time with my family and fur baby. Nature is my other playground.

I have a background in Visual Art and Design in Photography.  I’ve been lucky enough to travel the nation to different pole studios and pole events photographing new poler’s to the top pole stars in the world.


Pole Accomplishments

I look forward to creating more and helping others with their unique goals at Poler's Cove.  Follow me on Instagram @somerahonen

As a hairstylist and makeup artist, I’ve dedicated a huge portion of my life to helping people(women in particular) to feel confident and beautiful! My favorite thing in life is being a mom to my 3 precious boys, but a close second would be my passion for helping people to feel beautiful, inside and out! I’ve been lucky enough to work with my talented and gorgeous friend Somer for many, many years. In that time I’ve learned so much from her and damn have we had FUN! She’s the reason I decided to start doing pole. I had wanted to, and after she started I decided that I needed to as well. I’m so excited to be working with her even more as one of her instructors. My hope for my class is that my students leave feeling sexy, sassy and confident! While I hope that you love the movement and the routines, my bigger goal is that it leaves you with feelings of self worth and accomplishment. That you feel sexy in your skin. That you feel BEAUTIFUL! Be ready to have some fun because we laugh a lot too!! XO

I fell in love with Pole and Aerial Acrobatics 5 years ago, and have never looked back! I’ve had the opportunity to perform in various events over the years which I absolutely love. I also began teaching students 2 years ago. Watching a person find the joy of flying is my passion! I went to school and obtained a degree in Health and Fitness along with certifications in Yoga and TRX training. I have used my knowledge of the body and health in my aerial/pole training and instruction. My goal is to help bodies move as efficiently as possible with decreasing risk of injury and improving overall strength and mobility. Outside the aerial/pole world, I am a fur mamma. I have 3 dogs and 2 bunnies and they keep me on my toes! I also have passion in singing, piano, theater and costume creation. I love spending time outside and I crave as much sun as possible! When Somer asked if I wanted to join Poler’s Cove as a teacher, I was ecstatic. I’ve worked with her now for a couple of years and absolutely love being part of this beautiful new studio! I’m excited to work with students and help them discover and hone in on their own passion for pole.

My name is Courtnee. I live in South Jordan with my husband and adorable dog Millie. I found my love for pole right here at Poler’s Cove. Up until that point I had not been active very regularly and not in the best of shape. I started taking classes as much as possible, getting a lot of bruises along the way. I continued to work hard at it and soon started to question how I had ever lived without pole. It helped me find strength, confidence and beauty in myself. I soon realized I wanted to share the passion I found and help other people share that passion as well. Poler’s Cove is an incredible, loving and welcoming community. I love watching my students get stronger and excited to take on more. I hope to share my passion for pole with you!
