More advice on stretching!

Hi Adult Ballerinas! I thought I’d leave you with a quick post with a link to some split advice¬†and a reminder (as mentioned in the article) to not force your splits!

While of sure some of you who may have worked towards splits for a little may get them with the #30daystretchchallenge, many of us won’t. My main point in making myself do the challenge was to develop a regular stretching habits (something my ballet routine was lacking) and track my progress via pictures (and using those pictures as a reminder about why I should be stretching everyday!)

I’m so glad that so many people have agreed to take part in the challenge! Have fun everyone!

What’s your favorite time of day to stretch? I either stretch in the evenings while watching TV or after ballet class (when I’m nice and warmed up!)

(P.S. My lovely MacBook has had some battery issues so keep your fingers crossed that it gets fixed today!)

30 Day Stretch Challenge

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m notoriously bad at not remembering to stretch. I’ll do it for a couple of days, and then totally forget. Then yesterday, Thanks & Kittens gave me a wonderful idea: A 30 Day Split Challenge (which she herself started doing a few days ago).

My goal is to stretch for a minimum of 30 minutes a day (on top of ballet classes!), focusing on my split stretches. Then,each day, I’ll post an embarrassing photo of how one of my split’s is coming along either on the blog or my Instagram or Twitter account.

How I wish one day my splits could be like this.

Anyone want to join me? E-mail me or tweet me your photos!
