Pole dancing helps you become flexible and strong, while it brings out the sensuality in you because you need to set your mind that the pole is your lover and that you need to seduce him. This is a great practice to enhance your lowering libido.
If you want to learn pole dancing at home, you need to at least be able to do the basics like climbing, gripping, sitting and spinning on the pole.

You can also add wholebody mirror in front so you can see how you move. It’s like you’re making your own studio. But, the mirror is just optional because the pole is the most important. There are different kinds of poles you can choose from. For a starter, you can purchase a portable dance pole. If you are worried about your safety, don’t worry they are 100% safe.
The next thing to do is to purchase the right clothes. You will need a shorts, tank top and a sports bra. Shoes are optional but a lot of pole dancers dance barefooted. You can also use leg warmer to protect your legs if you want.

But bare in mind that when you’re doing pole dancing at home, there is no one who will correct you if you’re already doing it wrong.
