The Veena Method is a free, downloadable e-Book designed to be a Teacher Training Course. Written by Julie Brand aka Veena of StudioVeena.com, this resource is PACKED with knowledge and information essential to learning to pole dance.
I think one of the reasons that Studio Veena has been so successful – in my opinion as a consumer of the lessons – is that not only does Veena have great knowledge of technique, the body and fitness, but the progression that she has in all her lessons makes for injury-free learning as well as a pathway for us to advance in pole dance using our current physical abilities.
Pole dance is a physically demanding sport/hobby/workout and Veena is one the few places that I feel gives the new student online a path to mastering pole moves in an empowering way.
I felt fortunate to be able to start learning at a studio that helped me to learn fundamentals and condition my body before moving into more physically demanding tricks and routines. Not everyone is so fortunate. I’m reviewing this book awhile after it has come out, but I hope I can help forward it into the hands of more instructors and students alike.
The Veena Method is a guide to help you use the studioveena.com online video lessons to teach yourself or others how to pole dance. This isn’t a certification course although it contains lots of valuable information for instructors to use including:
This book is for both instructors and students alike – especially students that are learning on their own at home or are already signed up for online lessons either with Veena or another online course. The book is designed to be used with her lessons and there are links to specific video lessons that you will need a paid subscription to access.
This book is focused mainly on beginners – because all Veena’s lessons build on one another. This is not to say you cannot move ahead in some lessons.
One of the things I love about what and how she teaches is that pole dance is not a one-size-fits-all. She points out that not all pole moves and tricks are for every body – body type that is. She also points out that the Points of Contact (POCs) that she uses in her lessons are a general guideline and they won’t work for every body type either.
As a student or a home poler, this book can give you guidance on how to progress in learning pole dance. There are lots of tips and helpful information including:
