Flexibility & Stretching

Flexibility is an essential, yet often overlooked health-related component of sport, dance or even overall quality of life. There are numerous short- and long-term benefits of various types of stretching, just to name a few:

  • Increased flexibility and joint range of motion

  • Improved blood flow and circulation

  • Better posture

  • Stress relief and overall greater mental health

  • Enhanced coordination and muscular function

  • Improved sports performance

  • Reduced risk of injury

 

Fortunately, most of pole dance studios (including RebelStudio) offer various flexibility and stretching classes for their students.

 

Why flexibility is important for pole dances:

  • to master all those bendy pole tricks we've been admiring on Instagram.

  • to make your floorwork flow

  • to improve lines and increase fluidity

  • to move and hold poses in all sorts of crazy positions without risking any sort of injury.

  • to keep these hardworking muscles happy with proper stretching.

 

 

 

 

 

Why non-pole dancers should check Flexibility & Stretching classes in pole studios:

  • Classes in pole studios usually accommodate limited number of participants, which ensures personal attention from instructor

  • Instructors in pole studios focused to result of their students, who often perform at various competitions. Judges at such competitions are often trained to notice the difference between 179° and 180° split.

  • In addition to passive flexibility, the active flexibility is always on the agenda in pole studios.

  • Except yoga mats and blocks, there are poles in pole studios. That fact dramatically increases number of available exercises, to help you become more flexible.

  • And last but not least - pole community is amazing!

 

Active flexibility means functional range of motion you can access without external assistance. Your ability to get your body into a position without needing to use outside force, such as floor, a strap or a hand to pull you into it. For example, the ability to do a front split on the floor doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be able to get that back leg flat in your Jade.

On the pole, you pull the front leg with your hand (passive range of motion in your hamstring),

but your back leg has no floor to push against. You need to use your muscles to get it straight

(this is where you need good active range of motion).

 

 

 

Flexibility Training is a class focused on improving your range of motion, active flexibility and promote joint stability. This class is not only a great complementary class for all your pole activities but also for general everyday life by relieving muscle tension and stress from your body.

After the warm-up, you will work on improving various flexibility goals including splits, back bends, shoulder mobility and so much more. Each class will have a focus, e.g. frontsplit, you can see it in schedule.

This is a mat class, and it is not required to have pole dancing/ fitness experience to attend this class.  Yoga mats and blocks are at the studio. Feel free to bring your own if you like.

Notice that instructors may use pressure to increase range of motion in certain stretches, but no worries you will start off nice and gently (we won't push you down until you're ready for it!) 

What to wear: leggings or jogging bottoms and any top. Please ensure you wear layers for this class, you need to stay warm throughout and layers will help you to regulate your temperature through different stretch techniques.
