gerlonda Posted January 20, 2005 Report Share Posted January 20, 2005 hello all, For years my retire has been low. Putting my toe actually TO my knee cap seems like a feat I'll never manage. It's really starting to bother me because I'm now taking like 6 classes a week and stretching at home and I can barely reach to 2 inches below my knee cap. Weird thing is, when I lie on my back on the floor I can bring it up to my knee, and when I lie on my side with my passe knee facing the ceiling I can also draw my foot up to my knee (even PAST my knee). Can anyone give me any tips for when I'm standing up? I sometimes feel a pain in my left hip when I attempt retire/passe. My right hip does not hurt, but it feels as if there is an invisible barrier preventing me from doing this correctly. My teachers are always yelling at me "Higher passe, Higher passe!" I would like to take their correction, but my hips don't cooperate. What should I do? Quote Link to comment
