What will I learn?

Front Splits

Would you love to have Front Splits that look flat and feel amazing? Achieve squarer splits, open up your hip flexors/quads, release your glutes and get those pesky hamstrings to stretch! And if you’re already flat there is plenty to do to unlock your oversplits too. Having a flat and strong split will help you achieve beautiful moves on & off the pole.

Middle Splits

Do you lust after a flat Middle Split? This split is the most elusive and sought after split of all, and can be the most challenging to achieve. Throughout the mentorship we will open up through your hip joints, build strength in your end range and help you get closer to the ground or flat in your Middle Split, or even explore oversplits!

Straddle Splits

The Straddle Split (also known as pancake split) is by far the most commonly used form of flexibility needed in pole dance. We will work on leg & hip range of motion to help you get closer to flat. You will improve your lines and look while in straddle (pancake) splits. This flexibility will translate into more beautiful moves & inversions.

Pole Dance Fitness Program

Hey! I'm Indi, the founder of Indi Pole Dance.

In 2014, I created Indi Pole Dance, as a community for pole dancers all around the world. My passion has always been community. In 2016 we transitioned from pole wear to experience-based offerings, namely our super-popular luxury pole Retreats with the world's best instructors in Bali & Europe.

When COVID threw us a curveball, we knew we wanted to create something new & special to keep our community learning online, so we created our online Mentorships programs & Masterclasses. These progressive, interactive online programs have completely changed the way we learn pole online & they have been a pleasure to create & run. Our Mentorships & Masterclasses almost always sell out, because of the combination of world-class instructors, our unique programs & the amazing progress our students make.

While COVID life can feel isolated, these programs are the perfect way to connect. I hope you'll join us on this amazing journey.
