Go into a basic invert on the pole. Take your body around the pole getting it straight as if going into a Crucifix. Reach towards the ground and while keeping your arms straight and place both hands on the floor. Hands should be in line with your shoulders, and arms by your ears.
Take your weight in your legs and inside arm. Place your outside arm back on the pole with your thumb up. Pull on the pole to push your body around. Keep your inside arm on the floor. As your body moves around the pole you will feel the pole go behind your inside armpit. Take your inside arm off the floor when there is no weight left in that arm. When your upper back is on the floor, release your legs to land.
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 .
