Flexibility with Luxe

Image
One thing I really want to work on more this year is my flexibility, over the break between terms Luxe ran two contortion workshops at Bobbis Gold and they were great, the first one we focused on splits and a bit of back bending and the second one on mainly back bending. 

This term I've enrolled in her flexibility class and after the first class today I'm pretty excited to see how much I can improve my flexibility.

I'm pretty flexible already, I can already do the splits on my left, right and centre, but when I do my front splits I always have my hips open instead of square. So that's my main goal at the moment, to get both my left and right splits with my hips completely square. I'm going to have to make sure that I stretch during the week when possible. I also want to improve my back and shoulder flexibility so I'll work on those as well. I also want to be able to get my leg behind my head in a leg mount on both sides as well as improve my overspilt in my middl…

One week to go!

Don't forget next Thursday on SBS at 11pm (in Australia) the Documentary Blood Sweat and Sequins will be aired!! So write it in your diary, set a reminder in your phone and set your IQ's to record! From the looks of the trailer it's going to be AMAZEBALLS!

My Routine from the Pole Dance Academy Bond Girls Comp Last Year

Image
So I just realised that I totally forgot to post the video from the Pole Dance Academy Bond Girls comp last year. If I'm going to be totally honest it isn't the best performance I have ever done. 

After a few minor hiccups the Venue for the night was changed to The Club at Kings Cross the Wednesday before, having danced their before I knew the routine that I'd choreographed wouldn't work on the stage (the poles are pretty short) so I got to the venue a bit early to have a play on the poles and figure out what I could and couldn't do.  I have no idea what was going on with me that night, I had a couple of moments where I had mind blanks and did something silly like walk to the wrong pole (there is a speaker right near the pole on stage left that ends up getting kicked if you do anything that involves extending your leg) and at one stage I went to do a climb and half way through I decided not to because I remembered the pole was to short to do what I was going to do n…

Irina Savina

Image
I love YouTube, every now and then you come across something amazing! I came across a video last year of a Russian Pole Dancer Irina Savina and I was left speechless. She is so strong and flexible and has the stamina of.... ummm .... something that has a lot of stamina. I was having a look at one of her videos this morning and realised that it had only been viewed about 295 times which is a shame because the she's incredible! I've attached a couple of her videos here you can check out the rest on her YouTube Channel

My Pole Goals for 2013

Image
So it's a new year so time to set some new goals! AND STICK TO THEM!! I didn't really have many goals last year, I didn't write them down so I could make sure I worked for them, but this year that's going to change! 


First things first! I have a new pole book! It was hard to part with my old one, I love it, but it was falling apart so I decided it was time for an upgrade! Something a bit brighter so I went for a bright pink/orangeish number from Typo. I've also separated it into sections for certain performances/comps that I want to do this year. Each section has enough space for me to stick in pictures for costume ideas and write down combos and eventually the whole routine if I feel I need to! I also got one of Lou Landers Pole Goal Diary's for Christmas to help me be a bit more focused on what I want to achieve, it's fantastic, it has a section each month where you can write down your goals and two sections in the back to write more details on what your g…

Cleo's Hortizontal (Jade) Split Tutorial

Image
For ages and ages I struggled with my horizontal (jade) split, it looked more like a special K than a flat straight line. 
I've been lucky enough over the last couple of years to have Cleo as one of my teachers and without these tips from her I would have never have gotten my split flat on the pole!!
So if you're struggling with getting your horizontal split flat check out Cleo's tutorial on Youtube!









She also has another tutorial on press hand stands as well :)

Pull on your leg warmers and your favourite leopard print hot pants and get ready for a workout!! 


Over the last few months Cleo has been working her butt off to release an amazing work out DVD, Rockin Legs n' Abs and you can check out the trailer for it NOW on Youtube!! It looks incredible and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! As some one who has been a victim had the pleasure of being tortured having their butt well and truly whipped by Cleo in her flex class (and in her class warm ups) I can guarantee it's going to be worth it!!  Not only that but you don't have to be a pole dancer to do the workout! it's for everyone!!
