About a year ago I took a workshop with Natasha Wang and she demonstrated a move from a true grip handspring in which you weave your foot between your arms and split out.
Since that workshop I have been so consumed with getting the Awakenings Aerials program off the ground that I haven’t spent much time on the pole. I dare say, I am probably worse on the pole now than I have been for years. :(
Recently, partly because of this blog, I have decided to work on my pole skills once more and tackle this particular combo. I started working on it three days ago and practiced it again last night. This vid is Natasha demonstrating the move and my sad attempts last night. :P
P.S. Watching this video, I can see I should try to place my top hand higher when I spring up and also pike both legs over for better balance and stability.
