Stand with your strong side next to the pole and go into a V Invert. Hook your left leg over the pole at the knee. Bring your strong leg up so that both thighs are close and your strong foot is pointing towards the ceiling. When you have a good grip with your legs take your strong arm towards the floor and place it low on the pole. Keep this arm relatively straight. Move your body slightly (usually push your pelvis up) so that your legs and body are in a straight line. Reach your weak arm out towards the floor, keeping it in line with your body. 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 .
