Pole Twins – Růženka Kunstýřová & Veronika Řehořová
Last Summer I went to watch the IPSF World Pole Sports Champs in London, where pole twins Růženka Kunstýřová & Veronika Řehořová the Czech Republic won the Doubles competition with their wonderful routine (below). The duo have been working with pole wear brand Dragonfly in recent months. I really enjoyed watching the video they’ve just released (above) where the twins show-off the...

Pole & New Year’s Resolutions

Pole & New Year’s Resolutions
Okay so it’s time. We’ve all had a think about all of the things we achieved in 2015, so it’s now time to think ahead. I tend to fail at keeping New Year’s Resolutions. I set unrealistic goals thinking that a new year will bring a new me, but I’m pretty happy with the current me. I just wanted to improve on a few small things… It’s easy to think that you’ll drink less, eat less...

New Year – Past Pole Achievements

New Year – Past Pole Achievements
When a New Year rolls around, most of us are so busy thinking about all of the things that we want to achieve next year, or change about ourselves that we don’t really stop and think about all the amazing achievements from this year. If you’re like me, it might take a little while to realise quite how much you have manage to accomplish in the small space of a year. For example, some of you might...

Don’t Look Down!

Don’t Look Down!
When we first learn to invert, there is a tendency to want to look down. I don’t know why we do it – but we do. We know the floor will still be there, but for some reason we feel the need to look down and just double check. To be more specific, it’s usually when we are on the way down. Imagine you are just starting to go upside down and have got into your Crucifix. When you start...

Technique Is Everything!

Technique Is Everything!
I have been able to do a Wrist Seat for quite a while now. I remember a year or so ago I wanted to try the No Handed Seat (pictured) also known as a Violator, among other names. (I’m not a fan of that name, so I stick to mine!) I remember trying it over and over again with no luck. I hurt my coccyx and kept sliding down the pole. I had absolutely no idea how anyone would ever manage it. I decided...

Making Group Choreography

Making Group Choreography
I love making up choreography for pole. I usually teach a new routine every week, but recently have started working on group choreography. A few years ago I choreographed ‘Spring Awakening’ at my local theatre with quite a big cast. I have done a few different group pieces since then but this is the first time I have worked on a group piece for pole. We are doing a Pole Charity Christmas...

Black Friday For Pole – Do We Like It?

Black Friday For Pole – Do We Like It?
Yesterday morning my partner and I were talking about the psychology around Black Friday. Needless to say, the conversation didn’t get very far before I slightly changed the subject and started talking about all the things I wanted to buy. I always avoid large crowds and had no intention of going out shopping – but why would I when all the pole goodies are online? 😀 I assumed that...
