I paid for the platinum package of OpenDance Academy myself. I have not been asked to write this review, and they’re not paying me to do so. I do have an affiliate link for OpenDance Academy if you choose to use it, but I am writing this honest review so you know what you’ll be getting on the inside of their programme.
I’m super happy with my performance from Miss Pole Dance UK in the semi-pro instructor category 😀
As with every performance I can see the bits that I want to change or moves I want to work on, but I love this routine.
Massive thanks to Lorna Walker for helping me with the choreo for this one 😀
A post shared by Oona Kivelä (@oonakofficial) on Jun 27, 2017 at 10:40am PDT I’m totally in awe of this from Oona Kivelä having just seen it posted on her Instagram. I wish I was that strong and bendy!
While in Las Vegas for Pole Expo last weekend, we had a great evening watching Pole Show LA! Leigh Ann Reilly has done an amazing job of putting together a cast packed with pole stars from across the world. Yesterday I found a video online showing highlights of Amy Hazel’s amazing routine. I want to share it with you all
Today I have been strengthening my handstands using some of Charlotte Robertson’s techniques. Check out her tips…
For the last year I’ve been training with the amazing Charlotte Robertson, UKPPC Elite Category Winner 2015. She’s helped me so much… I’m still in awe of her handstands!
Resistance Bands & Flips I’ve got 5 exercises to show you using a resistance band. They are really quick and easy to do – all you need is a resistance band. You can put them all together to make a great full body workout.
I wanted to take you through a typical strength training session that I do for pole.
Here is my collection of grip aides that I have acquired over the years. I try to pole for as long as I can without grip and turn to it if necessary. I know others tend to favour using grips which is absolutely fine. I have tried most of them and definitely have my favourites.
Here I show 10 variations on a plank exercise. Try to hold each for 30 seconds if you can – or less if you need to. If you’re looking for a way of strengthening your abdominals try this as a plank challenge for your core.
