Scuballerina you can whatsapp or sms me.

Appleblossom it took me maybe 1-2 yrs to build up my flexibility. I have progressed much much more compared to when I started, now able to do a reasonable penchee and reaching slightly more than 90 deg for devant. But I want more and my flex is very much contingent upon practicing frequently. My overall performance was pretty good when I prepared myself for intermediate exam, not only I take daily classes, I also do Barre section and stretching in my office every morning! It really did make a difference. As my teacher told me, at this age, daily conditioning (not overly exerting, though) is very important just to maintain, and hopefully to slowly improve the flexibility.

Pianolady, got your number, thanks!

A quick flexibility question for all... I do feel that my flexibility and strength improve if I do some barre and stretching exercise by myself. But why do I feel nothing (except muscle pain) after my pilates class?
