Course 3 – Flexibility Makeover for Dancers held back by tightness

This course is also part of Stacey’s Dance! Flexibility Makeover Power Pack. You can find my post series about it here.

Duration:

  • Module 1: before pictures: 6 minutes
  • Module 2: (main course and after pictures) 54 minutes

Level:

All levels

Props:

  • A couple of yoga blocks (I use 2)
  • Some clear wall space
  • Optionally: a stretching strap (or 2!) and a pair of light freeweights (you can also use wrist/ankle weights)

Course type:

Recorded skype session

Featured student:

Ella (dancer)

What I like about it:

It is a recorded Skype session featuring a 10(!) year old dance student. During the course it feels like Stacey’s gentle wording, enthousiastic encouragement and tactful feedback are speaking directly to my ‘inner dancer’, who is about 6 🙂

Flexibility work, especially on days I am feeling less limber, can at times put me in a bit of a vulnerable place.

I can be hard on myself (working on it!) when I am doing things that do not come easy, and the tone of this course somehow magically puts me at ease before I start feeling frustrated.

The easy pace of the course allows time for transitioning between exercises, and Staceys words of encouragement really do add to the feeling of safety – which makes a huge difference in flexibility work.

What it does for me:

It helps to keep me on track with my flexibility practise, even on days where I am feeling less motivated, and/or when I am still a bit sore from working out or intense dance/martial arts classes the day before.

Effects after a few sessions:

Got closer to front splits, felt more relaxed in TaeKwonDo.

My favourite exercise:

There are a few that I like, but my personal favourite is the weighted butterfly variation. It’s hands-free, relaxing, yet effective!
