March 20-April 24

2:00 - 3:15pm pst

In this virtual workshop series, Monica will guide you through a progressive pole and flexibility practice, moving towards the pole trick “Eagle”. This is an all-level workshop series - yes even beginners will benefit from this workshop. Participants will use the pole to warm up, strengthen and stabilize as well as learn active and passive stretches while on the pole. By the end of this workshop, students can expect more flexibility in their existing pole tricks and a few new bendy tricks to check off the pole goals list.

Week 1

Focus on spine strength and mobility, safely preparing the spine for an intense extension.

Week 2

Focus on ballerinas and closed leg hangs on the pole.

Week 3

Deepen flexibility into the upper back and shoulders safely and explore how to reach overhead to grab the foot.

Week 4

Exploring shoulder mobility and twisting the spine around the pole to prepare students for tricks like bird of paradise and eagle. If students are challenged by this point and wish to revisit tricks from previous weeks to master them for technique, that is encouraged. Everyone is at a different stage in their journey and consistent practice leads to progress with time.

Week 5 and 6

Primarily focused on getting students into the coveted “eagle” pole trick with the option to work on closed leg hang with the arms overhead.

 

Required Items: Access to a pole (either in their home or at a studio) pole shorts (sticky pants are not recommended) and a yoga strap or something similar. Suggested props are a yoga mat and yoga blocks (2 or more).

 

Cost: $96 for the series
