Fighting Dizziness and Nausea on Spin Pole

Do you find yourself clinging to the pole when it’s spinning? Despite the level of experience, someone who does Pole Dance can still experience the problem of nausea and dizziness on Spin Pole. One moment you feel as graceful as a ballerina, the next moment you feel you might lose your grip. Lush Motion explains why Spin Pole makes you so nauseous and what you can do to combat it.

Is Spinny Pole as easy as it looks?

Both Spin Pole and static pole each have their own challenges. Spinny Pole has an added element of difficulty because of the speed the Pole spins at. The closer you are to the Pole, the faster you go due to the momentum. This can cause you to spin too fast and become prone to dizziness or injury. We recommend following our Spinny Pole classes and discover how Spinny Pole can transform your routine.

Why am I so dizzy and nauseous after spinning?

Whether, and to what extent, you feel dizzy or nauseous is different for every person who trains on Spinny Pole. Some people feel dizzy from training on Static Pole, whereas other people can train on Spinny Pole for a whole session. Autonomy wise, our body uses a system in our inner ear to sense whether it is moving, still, upright or lying down. Once you start spinning, the brain receives the signal that you are moving. When you stop spinning, you become dizzy due to this inner system continuing to send signals to your brain even when you’ve stopped.

Combating that feeling

Spin Both Ways

There are a few simple tricks to combat dizziness. Before you start, make sure to spin both ways before diving into your routine. Let your body adjust to spinning first, then you can move on to more difficult moves. If you’re new to Pole Dance, it’s recommended to start with our Pole Basics classes. This gives you the chance to get used to the motion of spinning without the added speed.

Slow Down

Another common reason for getting too dizzy is because the spin might be too fast to be able to control your moves comfortably. Learning to control your spin speed takes time. The more familiar you become with the technique, you’ll be able to control your speed more. A strong core can also help control your momentum on the Pol, take a look at Core classes by Lush Motion.

Relax Your Eyes

Try to relax your eyes when spinning and focus on your body movements. If your eyes are sending signals to your brain mid-spin, your brain only receives blurred images which cause it to panic. This may amplify spin sickness. When you need to move your hand, refocus on the Pole rather than paying attention to the rest of the room.

Ask a Friend

If you’re worried about spinning too fast or injuring yourself, ask a friend to spot you! This can help slow you down when you feel like you’re getting too dizzy. Be sure to tell them to apply gradual pressure on the Pole to slow it down and stop safely.

Final Thoughts

Spinny Pole is not as easy as it looks-, a lot of effort goes into making it look so effortless! There’s no quick fix when it comes to getting used to Spinny Pole. However, give it time and you’ll start to enjoy how light it makes you feel. Are you ready to start spinning? Sign up for your 7-day free trial with Lush Motion.
