What is Polga?
Polga (pole yoga) is a trademarked exercise program that combines elements from pole fitness classes with Hatha yoga poses. The vertical pole adds a touch of fun and assists with alignment, stretching and strengthening in the poses while retaining yoga's meditative and relaxing aspects.
Yoga instructor Carla Gilfry created Polga in her Kansas City yoga studio. The basic concept, though, is not new. Dating to at least the 12th century, mallakhamb is a traditional Indian sport in which gymnasts hang from a vertical pole while doing yoga postures and other feats.
