Beautiful pose! I also notice your free arm is extended and aligned with you head and chest as you lean back. Does this help with your balance too?

Hi MariYabe :)  Indeed the extension of Felix's arm does facilitate the stability of the pose ...it also creates a beautiful line that accentuates the pose.  Would love to see photos of all of you :) Post post post :) Happy Poling!

Silly question. How others progress but how do you post photos or videos?

I only have an 8 foot pole...what do I need to do to make this work without lifting my knee so high? I'm getting stuck pulling up when my knee is that low.

Perhaps try lowering your body so your body positioning is similar to your bent leg as if you did lift your knee high.
