Guest Zarafa Posted November 21, 2005 Report Share Posted November 21, 2005 Hi Question for dancers/teachers - is there a limit to the flexibility an adult dancer can achieve? By which, I don't mean because of skeletal factors (obviously, there are some people that aren't going to ever do side-splits without a hip replacement!) but to do with age/muscle limitations due to ageing etc? Could I stretch for an hour a day for the rest of my life without seeing much improvement? I ask because Mel J said that flexibility only improves up to 25 years, and after this it's only maintenance! Yet you hear stories about people starting yoga at 30, and now being super-bendy? Any science/personal anecdotes on either side of this debate? Z Quote Link to comment
