Did you know that you can use your dance pole as your personal stretching assistant to help improve your flexibility?

And aside from helping to prevent injuries, a regular stretching routine is something you'll need if you want to master those advanced moves.

That's why I incorporated this important topic into my Pole Fitness DVD series.

I'll tell you more about my stretching DVD in a bit, but first I want to share some of my favourite stretches with you, so you can try them out for yourself.

(These stretches are generally safe for most people in reasonable physical condition. However, as much as I hope common sense will prevail, here's my disclaimer)
