Pole Yoga is not a new thought; the concept of Pole Yoga has been around for many years. There is an ancient yoga practice called Mallakhamb. Mallakhamb is a traditional Indian sport in which a gymnast performs poses and feats while hanging from a vertical wooden pole or rope. The origins of Mallakhamb (meaning "man of power" or "gymnasts pole"), which is yoga, practiced on a wooden pole and on rope (mainly practiced in India), may date back to 12th century, but the discipline is suspected to be formed as recently as 250 years ago. A second discipline directly relating to today’s pole dance known as Mallastambha (meaning "gymnasts pillar") was used by wrestlers to build up strength.
