There’s much more that meets the eye when it comes to Jade splits. It’s an illusion trick.
Synthesize the concept, tradition, components and various methodologies of the pole trick — Jade split (inverted horizontal front split on the pole). This is designed for learners who want to build a vocabulary of skills that translate into various options that secure a consistent performance of grippier and flatter jade splits (or its variations) anywhere on the pole.
For this lab, it’s not necessary for you to be able to have a front split on the ground or chopper inversion.

A: Participation is $100 total. $50 is due at checkout as a deposit to hold your spot, which is non refundable.

If you need to relinquish your spot before the final payment you can cancel your participation by contacting me.
A: Yes! They are not required but they will help tremendously.
1. Resistance bands (one of each lite, medium and heavy). If you wish to purchase them from me once you add this item to cart a coupon will be available. Apply the coupon and the bands will be added automatically to your cart.
2. Yoga blocks and a yoga mat
3. Pole grip, one that works well on your body. For PT’s monkeyhands I would recommend using the “Sticky” formula
A: You will be introduced to the soft and hard skills needed for the entry, execution and exit variations for Jade. We will be focusing strict on developing the cognitive and physical behaviors needed for safe execution from start to finish of Jade. You will also be given the opportunity to explore different aesthetic and tradition explorations. You will not be taught dance sequences or flow combinations that include Jade or its variations, although it’s welcome to do so from external resources.
R: I don’t like conditioning according to the standard pole levels often ascribed. There is something to be said about discerning between absolute beginners and advancing students though.
To answer this question think of it like this: jade is an illusion split that doesn’t require having an actual ground split. There are entries that do not require having a chopper invert even. However, what it does require is: A. willingness to accept range of motion limitations and work on them off-pole, B. active engagement through the lower body, and C. mental resilience to face the fear and apprehension of having no hands gripping the pole and being inverted. If you demonstrate this already in your pole practice, this is appropriate for you.
R: There are two options which are first come, first serve.
Option 1: Sundays @ 8pm EST – July 3, 17, 21. Recordings for each session included and will be made available after.
Option 2: Wednesdays @ 6pm EST – July 6, 20 + Aug 3. Recordings for each session included and will be made available after.
R: Recordings will be provided after the session. And since there is a week in-between each session I will be available to asses practice videos sent to me, ask questions and get individualized assistance.
