Course 7 – Extension into Infinity

Duration:

  • Module 1: introduction and before pictures – 4:32 minutes
  • Module 2: Main video – 39:40 (the final 3-4 minutes combine flexibility re-tests with splits, bridges/backbends and extensions usings Staceys stretching straps)

Level:

Intermediate to advanced

Props:

  • A set of yoga blocks (I use 2)
  • Some clear wall space
  • Optional, but highly recommended: a Stacey stretching Strap (or 2 straps if you want to intensify the exercises)

Course type:

Follow-along demonstration by Bobbie and voice over/coaching by Stacey.

Featured student:

Bobbie Allannah (dancer)

What I like about it:

I like that the main portion of this course is on the short side compared to the other courses of the package.

This means I can use it in combination with one of the longer courses on days when I have more time, or on it’s own as a deep warmup before ballet or martial arts class.

I deeply enjoy the longer stretch videos of the course pack, but it’s really nice to have a shorter option included as well.

Last but not least, I love Bobbie’s beautiful foot lines and posture during the exercises, as well as the gorgepus balances she demonstrates with the strap at the end of the video – an inspiration!

What it does for me:

Working with this video helps me maintain and even gently progress(!) my flexibility – even on days where time is shorter.

Effects after a few sessions:

I notice that my front bend is deeper, and that my outer hips are starting to feel more ‘alive’ and relaxed after working with the video a few times.

My favourite exercise:

The ‘crossed-leg’ hamstring stretches about halfway the video were a revelation to me.

I could feel a release happening in new-to-me places, yet I was still able to control the depth of the stretch quite easily.

Happy stretching!
