Guest futuredancer Posted December 11, 2004 Report Share Posted December 11, 2004 Over this winter break, I'm going to start cross-training to help me improve with my ballet. I did Pilates briefly earlier this year, but I never really caught on with it. I walk every chance I get to build up stamina, but I would like to improve my core strength and tone and lengthen the muscles in my arms. I am debating between weight-lifting and trying a new method I just heard about called the Nalini method, which, according to the flyer I have for it, is a "combination of yoga, pilates, aerobics, ballet, and resistance training" and "enhances flexibility, improves posture, creates longer, leaner muscles, and strengthens core and tones body". This seems to be what I am looking for, I just do not know much about the technique. Has anyone here had any experience with it or would advise me to go in another direction with my cross-training? Answers will be most appreciated Quote Link to comment
