Pole dancing stretches are important to help you increase your flexibility and prevent injury. After all, the longer and more supple your muscles, the easier it will be to get into all those crazy positions without hurting yourself!

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 favorite stretches with you, so you can try them out for yourself.

Just click on any of the photos below to see detailed information and more photos demonstrating each stretch.

(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)

All Set? Let's Get Started!

Pole Dancer Stretch

This is a modification on the Dancer Pose used in many Yoga classes.

In this case, your dance pole provides balance if you need it, allowing you to start off with some support, and then progress in your balance and flexibility as you're ready.

Pole Shoulder Stretch

Targeting a common area of tightness, this stretch is excellent for keeping your chest and shoulders open and loose.
