More Pole Pics

The first picture is of a pose that I think is called The Lady.  It doesn’t look like much, but holding on by your thighs and one hand is challenging.  Normally, you lean your head back and arch your hips up more than I am in this pic.  We wanted to show my face.  My hips need to be arched more, but I’m close on this one.  As with the strength holds I describe below, it has taken me several months to develop the muscular ability to do this pose.  It’s deceptive, as is much of pole work.

Another part of what we do in pole class are strength holds: poses that build our strength so we can do more maneuvers on the pole.  They are much harder to do than they look.  It took me several months to be able to do these two poses.  I could never hold them for any length of time.  So, I’m really thrilled at the progress I’ve made.  🙂
