An Open Letter to My Body
Here are the instructional Videos on how to correct Hyper Extended legs (Harmony!!!)

Here are some simple concepts that will help you change the way you “think” about “how” you straighten the leg, and some exercises to help you first find the proper muscles to lift the knee cap up- (not back) and then strengthen the muscles above the knee then so that the leg with be strong and secure. I find that it’s best to try to find and connect with these new muscles outside of class where you can really focus solely on isolating the area. In class there is too much to worry about (the combination, the counts, the arms, moving across the floor, trying to turn and jump). These are simple exercises that can be done on the bus stop, while waiting for the train, (and you won’t look crazy!) or when you are just standing around. This way you can put the muscular information into your body when you can concentrate and feel what you are doing. The body will remember and when you do get into class you fill find that the muscles will start to fire almost without thought. It’s also a good idea to add these exercised to your warm up so that you can set up your legs before class to set. Don’t get discouraged, it’s new and seems daunting but the body learns and responds quickly. Stick with it

Hear Erika explain what she felt when she employed the concepts we talked about…

  1. Im excited and i’ve been doing it, and I already see progress with my stamina, it can get overwhelming though, and sometimes very hard, but I feel a lot better

  2. Yay! Isn’t it funny that you take multiple classes a day and yet when you decide to show up 100% you are EXHAUSTED!! It’s hard work! That is so great that you have experienced more stamina, that will only get better and allow you to work on other things and create consistency. In order to not be overwhelmed, don’t try to fix everything at once, pick something to focus on (like your turn out) and once you have a breakthrough, and you understand it and can replicate it, you can move on to working on something else (while keeping that first thing intact). Well done! good to hear!

  3. Taire, you can do better then that, your toes hurt? ok well I’m glad that you are up on the boots but what else have you been experiencing…

  4. Sooo, I think personally I will be on a 365 day challenge LOL! But seriously, I know for myself that if I have the mindset of working beyond what I can do and continually being my ‘OWN’ cheerleader, growth will happen. Beyond the 30 days, I want to accomplish all that I am capable of doing.

  5. I usually get bored in class but the challenge has been keeping me focused and more connected to what im doing and how im doing it. I feel like this can help me regain enthusiasm for dance class
