Invert on Spin pole

 
KseniaS
Hi this question is for Veena.
Would it be possible for you to make a lesson on how to invert on spin pole? Also, any conditioning exercises that you think would be beneficial for learning this skill?
I have done it a couple times but had great difficulty controlling it and freaked out a little when I was upside down and spinning out of control. But, I really want to learn this and would LOVE your help.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Yep I watched that video! I just need some more instruction regarding inverting on spin mode.

If you were "spinning out of control" you need to start with less speed. You really don't need much momentum to get a spin when you are inverting from the ground. Or is it an aerial invert you're talking about?

Lucca's video [www.studioveena.com] is a really clear visual tutorial of a spin invert if you're a visual learner. See how she pole holds and tilts diagonally then tucks up tips back and unfolds? That's the basic spin invert right there, done simply and beautifully: she then moves into a leg hang and then increases the spin by a. Tucking in and B. Bringing legs nearer to pole - opening up a move by extending an arm or leg speeds you up, bringing legs or arms in speeds you, as Veena explains in her spin pole tutorial.

So if you want to air invert on spin, don't go into a basic invert and bring legs/ankles to pole because yes, you will speed up! Go into a straddle/V/chopper and then a leg hang or whatever you want.

I'm still struggling with this and I don't have enough strength or control on spin yet. I'm no expert but here is what I have gathered so far in my 'research'... Hopefully it can be of use. In both Veena's tuck spin and hold spin lessons (in the intermediate section) she says both spins can transition into an ariel invert on spin. It's similar to the grip Lucca uses in her gorgeous invert. I have been working on holding those and gaining strength to feel confident in those spins. It's tougher than it looks.

Also MissDirdyBirdy has an ariel invert video (video #29) that has a lot of tips for spinny inverts and shows a lot of those techniques in motion and slowly. She also offers strengthening tips at the end for that particular move.

All this 'research'... Sigh... I wish I could afford a class. lol. Good luck, I hope that helps with your current nemesis.

Oh my gosh thank you so much Tamarinda! I actually love watching Dirdy Birdy dance but I didn't know she had online video tutorials. I'm going to start working on this for sure. I'm definitely in the same boat as you and am working on building the strength and confidence on spin mode. Best of luck to you in your journey, let me know how you progress!

Can someone watch my video and tell me what I might be doing wrong? I keep telling out of my aerial spin inverts. Thanks
