Superman: How To

Superman: How To
We all know that we love the Superman. For me it was always a move to judge other moves by: ‘Is it easier than the Superman?’ ‘Is it more painful than the Superman?’ The more I do it, the more variations, transitions and combinations I find. It’s brilliant! I like to teach the Superman from a Side Climb – you can do this super low to the ground so there’s less...

Ayesha: How To

Ayesha: How To
Ayesha, Ayesha, Ayesha. How I love you and hate you both at the same time. You have been there on my happiest days and my most frustrating days, and sometimes all in the space of a 10 minute window. Whether you can do it or not, it’s fair to say that the Ayesha is an important and awesome pole move. You can use it after your handspring and use it to help get your deadlifts. It helps you to get...

3 Spins To Master

There will be some moves that you absolutely love and want to practice over and over again, some moves that you don’t mind doing either way and then there are those that you just hate. You may not remember these off the top of your head but when someone shows you them, all of that former anger comes bounding back to you! Whether you like...

Getting The Most from Pole Workshops

Getting The Most from Pole Workshops
I used to worry that’d never be good enough to go along to workshop with some of the best polers out there. Now I’ve decided that no matter what happens, I’ll always get something out of it – even if it’s just inspiration to train or a new move to work towards. Obviously there’s no point booking onto an advanced workshop if you can’t invert, but most of the...

Inverted D – How To

Inverted D – How To
I love the Inverted D. I think it’s a great way to work on your strength and balance on the pole, but it is quite often over looked as a good move to try. It’s a perfect progression from the Butterfly and can really help you work on your Ayesha. The most important part of this move is to have a really strong, confident Butterfly. You want to be able to hold your Butterfly without shaking...

Put Your Pole Self Out There

Put Your Pole Self Out There
When I had been poling for about 6 years, for some reason I had been keeping it to myself – I never meant to, it just never seemed to come up in conversation. It’s very rare when you tell someone you’ve been working out, that they ask specifics of what you have been doing. I’m a secretive person by nature so I’ve always kept myself in a little pole bubble. After I stopped...
