Stretch in Attitude Devant

Recommended Posts

How do you get yourself to have your hips square? I'm not feeling as much of a stretch as before, but my hips_will_not_square. Which part is best to focus on, squaring your hips or getting your knee further down?

 

Also...I feel the stretch, it's lovely, but where does flexibility gained here come into action?

Are you talking about the stretch with the leg on the barre? If so, the height of the barre matters, as does the height of attitude devant. It is a better line when rotation is not sacrificed for extension.

The barre is maybe at 90 degrees (the lower barre) in relation to my body's proportions when I put my leg up.
