Go into a basic invert on the pole. Place your inside arm low on the pole and use it to push up to get your inside stomach on the pole. Start to lower your bottom until your torso is parallel to the ground. Keep your bottom arm straight. When secure, take your back (inside) leg off of the pole. Bend it at the knee and place it back on the pole as close to your stomach as you can. Grip the pole between your stomach and inside leg. When secure in this position, take your top hand off of the pole and place over your inside leg like a hug – do not hold the pole with this arm. Start to take the top leg off of the pole and straighten it out parallel to the ground. As you do this, your body will tilt towards the ground and your top forearm will go into the pole, securing your grip. Take your bottom hand off the pole and hug around the inside leg. Look towards the ceiling and hold the pose.
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 .
