BREAKDOWN OF A POSE: THE AYESHA
PERFORMED BY STEFANIE AMY GUION
Climb to desired height.
Invert and clear your inside shoulder to bring your chest and stomach onto the pole.
Place both your hands on the pole, fingers pointing towards the floor, at about face height. Push your body away from the pole and then move your hips up so they are directly across or slightly above your knees. Make sure to pull your stomach in towards your spine, and avoid arching your back for maximum stability.
Hook one elbow around the pole and pull to create a triangle between the elbow, the pole, and your bottom arm (pushing your body away from the pole). Make sure to keep that bottom arm very straight and push your body away from the pole. It’s actually easier to balance and stay in good form as you move your chest and hips further away from the pole. Also remember to stay completely inverted with the hips stacked directly over the shoulders.
