My strongest days are always after a break... The longer the break, the better! Which is actually really frustrating cause it’s encouraging me NOT to train and it feels counter-productive even if I know it’s better for my strength! . Strength is something I’ve always struggled with, I’ve known how to do an ayesha for about 4 years now but I still can’t hold one for that long!! But flexibility has always come quite easily to me, so I guess I can’t have it all... . Excited about little steps of progress though, getting closer to full deadlifts now! :) . What types of moves do you find easy, and which moves are incredibly hard? Are you more naturally strong or naturally flexible? . Either way, remember to not compare yourself to others and if it takes you years to learn a move, don’t give up, you’ll get there eventually! 😊 . (Also, yeah that’s how I end most of my videos 😆) #poledancer #pole #polelove #poleinstructor #pddeadlift #pdironx #pdayesha #pdtwistedgrip #pdtwistedgripdeadlift #pdtwistedgripayesha #theonlinepoleschool #onlinepoleschool #polefitnessvideos #strong #strongwomen #strengthtraining #deadlift #fitfam #fitness #fitnessmotivation #keepgoing #dontgiveup #girlpower #poleislife #lovetopole #livetopole #polersofig #dancersofinstagram #dancer #homedancestudio

I’ve been extremely tired this week and barely had the energy to dance, but I managed to do a little bit of impro today :) Started from the wall because walls were the theme of the day on @theonlinepoleschool lockdown challenge, this ended up going away from the wall very quickly though! 😄 The lovely music is by @djleeburridge @lostdesertmusic @alldayidreamintheclouds Now I’ll try to rest and get rid of this inexplicable exhaustion. Hope you’re all safe and healthy xxx P.S. Please check out @theonlinepoleschool page for a fun challenge to win free classes!

We’re all facing all kinds of challenges right now. I hope you’re all staying sane at this crazy time. 💛 I’ve started relying more on an old favourite technique of mine, and I’d love to share it, hope it helps you deal with this difficult time too. People usually think of me as a very positive person, but deep down I’m really not, positivity is a conscious choice I make every day, and I’ve trained my mind to think of the bright side in all situations. Started doing it around the age of 12 and it’s starting to feel natural, but there are still days, especially recently, when it’s very easy to give into complaining, anxiety and desperation. I find this one simple technique in particular to be super helpful to flip my thinking around very quickly. It’s very easy: write down a list of everything that you’re grateful for. No matter how badly you think your life is going, there is always something. A roof over your head, a warm meal, a text message from someone you love... Just the existence of the people closest to you. It could be anything. Write as many as you want, but make sure there’s at least seven items on your list. Then read through them again and take a minute or so to really feel that gratitude with each one, really focus on how good it makes you feel. We all have so much to be thankful for every day, but we’re all masters of forgetting it and always wishing for more! Now that we so clearly remember how it’s like to live a life with a lot more freedom than what we have at the moment, it’s easier than ever to slide into depression thinking about all those things you can’t have right now. But this won’t last forever. :) We’ll get through this. And staying positive will really help cope with the present while we’re waiting for a brighter future 💛 #staypositive #lookforthepositive #lookforthebrightside #mentalhealth #stayhome #isolation #quarantine #quarantinethoughts #lockdownlife #selfisolation #gratitude #feelgrateful #feelgratefuleveryday #practicegratitude #positiveattitude #positivity #onlinepoleschool #theonlinepoleschool #pdjaneiro #poledancer #poledance #poleinstructor #poleperformer #polelife #polelove #lovepole #livetopole #polersofig #pole

This is a fast version of a choreo I made for some classes recently. We’ll be learning this at @theonlinepoleschool contemporary pole class tomorrow, but we’ll start slowly with different music!! And move on to the faster version when everyone’s ready :) . I love dancing to anything by @moderatband , this track is so much fun to dance to! It’s called Therapy if you want to find it on Spotify. If you don’t have a pole but want to learn contemporary choreo, I’m also doing a non-pole contemporary class on Thursdays :) #choreography #poledancer #poledance #contemporarypole #contemporarydance #polechoreo #polechoreography #learnpoledanceonline #learndanceonline #onlineclasses #onlinedanceclasses #onlinepoleclasses #onlinepoleschool #theonlinepoleschool #poleinstructor #performer #dancer #dancerlife #performerlife #stayhome #homedancestudio #hometraining #fastmovement #lovetodance #livetodance #livetomove #movementculture #polelove #dancelove #polevideos

Love exploring all the variations of movement... How to switch between playful and serious, or between silly and sexy? So much fun!! . If you’re reading this, I challenge you: go and have a dance right now! In your living room or kitchen, wherever you happen to be... Let go for a second and just move 💜 If you’re a pro dancer, move like it’s the first time you’re dancing, like you’ve never had to learn a choreographed step in your life. And if you’re not a dancer at all, forget about thinking if it looks good or not, it doesn’t matter! As long as it feels good it’s doing its purpose! (And usually any dance that feels good looks good too!)

I’ve been busy working on a new website, @theonlinepoleschool , and filming tutorial videos. I had been dreaming of starting a pole tutorials site for a while, so it seems like the current world situation was exactly the kick in the butt I needed to make it happen... . I hope it will bring some joy to the lives of all the home-bound dancers, and that we can grow a new online community of dancers tuning in to train together from all over the world 🌟 . I will have a booking system up and running soon, but before then if you’d like to book your place in any of the online classes please DM me. They will be held via Zoom, with a limited number of participants so that I can help everyone just like at a pole studio! . Classes will start running this Tuesday 24th March. A single class costs £7, but you can also buy a membership to get the price down to as low as £5 per class! Due to the extraordinary circumstances we’re living in right now, I will also give two free places in each class. If you’re really struggling financially and just can’t afford to spend any money but want to train, please DM me. . Very excited about this, although slightly overwhelmed with the amount of work its requiring! 😅 . I hope you’re all safe and well, and I hope to train with you very soon 😊 . -Sylvia xxx . Please slide to see the schedule! :) . #poleinstructor #poledancer #pddangerousbird #poletutorials #theonlinepoleschool #poledancersofinstagram #dancersofinstagram #dancer #dancetutorials #newbusiness #excited #learnonline #flexible #bendy #becomeflexible #learnpoledance #thingstodowhenquarantined #thingstodoathome #homegym #homedancestudio #stayathome #poledance #onlineclasses #weheartpole #fitfam #strongwomen #becomestronger #trainingmotivation #polegoals #lovepole

Trying to come to terms with the current situation, I notice I go between taking it seriously and complete denial... . It’s time to accept that right now we all just have to say no to fun events, take our distance, and let this virus die out... . We all have a responsibility to protect the vulnerable people in our society. 🧡 . Let’s do this, let’s stay at home, let’s show love and compassion to our fellow human beings by taking some distance. We’ll come out stronger and more connected to each other than ever before, after having had to go through this difficult experience together!! 🧡 #stayathome #staythefuckhome #coronavirus #showlove #showcompassion #dancer #bendy #londoncontortionist #stretchingathome #contortion #contortiontraining #contortionistintraining #bendyback #exerciseathome #flexible #flexibility #flexiblepeople #dancetraining #dance #danceathome #fightcoronavirus💪 #fightcoronavirustogether #wecandothis #dancersofinstagram #poledancersofig #polersofig #weheartflexibility #lovedance #loveflexibility #theonlinepoleschool
