Recently we asked our fellow polers about what they felt was holding them back in their pole practice. We received many responses - from strength related to confidence to pole techniques. One of the questions was on strengthening your air inverts also known as aerial inversion.
Last night, I had the honour of performing with A Lyrical Affair at Burlington Performing Arts Centre. This cabaret show was a mix of singing, dance and celebrating their 10 years of this singing duo. I had a blast, loved it AND learned a valuable lesson…
And here we go!!
I Heart Pole Challenge 2019 is back!
It's been 3 years since we have had fun with this Instagram challenge!
This is a fun training challenge that we started back in 2016 and I'm thrilled to bring it back. It's great to check out and use as a training guide.
In between pole classes, I would turn to youtube for inspiration and dream of becoming a strong pole performer. I could invert and climb to a sit. I was hooked!
I would watch these two videos - over and over again - dissecting the moves. In all honesty, the sequence of moves are simple compared to the pole moves now…
"I've never been one for traditional fitness. Not that there's anything wrong with that choice. I find activities hold my interest longer then the gym. I always joked with my friends who are big gym goers that I'll go to the gym if there's like "stripper-cise" class so when a Pole Dancing studio opened up in my neighbourhood I had to at least take an intro class so I wouldn't be a hypocrite. That decision changed my life. I became hooked instantly and have been dancing for 8 years now in total and been teaching for almost 6 years now."
