Stand with your strong side closest to the pole. Place both hands on the pole and go into a basic invert. Move your body so that you can grip the pole tightly with your strong arm-pit. When you have a good grip, keep both legs together and slowly slide them down the pole as you increase the grip on the pole with your inner upper thighs. When you have a secure grip straighten both legs out towards your head, parallel to the floor. Cross one foot over the other to increase your grip and strength. Place your hands on your shins and pull towards you for a strong grip. Hold this 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 .
