Go into your basic invert. Bring your body round to go into a Crucifix. Place both hands on the floor under your shoulders. Keep a really strong grip slightly above your knees on the pole. Straighten out your outside or front leg while still keeping the knee on the pole. Walk your hands out until your body is parallel to the floor. Keep your knees together either side of the pole. When you are parallel, bend your arms as you slowly lower your body to the ground. Kick your bent leg up to get it free from the pole. Stand up as you wish.
Pole Dance Instructor & PoleFreaks Founder
Holly started pole dancing after admiring the grace, skill and elegance of pole performances and immediately falling in love with the style. After half a decade of bruises, struggling and then the satisfaction of success, her own pole school Firefly Poles was born. The vision is to share that same passion with others.
Holly wished that there was more Pole Dancing help available when I was learning, so now she aims to provide that help through writing, blogging and teaching here on PoleFreaks.
Holly is also a Level 4 advanced personal trainer and an ambassador for Dragonfly pole wear, and also writes regularly for the Dragonfly blog .
