TH28754 Posted August 14, 2006 Report Share Posted August 14, 2006 My foot is not very flexible. Although I have a high arch and when i get down into the spider pose i can almost get a straight line from the ankle to the toes, as soon as i straighten that line is gone. When I have one leg on the bar and my teacher comes by to stretch my foot further, it does stretch a lot more. Does this mean that I can eventually build the ability to stretch my foot that far on my own without my teacher holding it? For example, I can lift my leg very high when I have a bar to support my leg, but I cannot lift this high on my own. Does that mean that I have the flexibility but not the strength in my leg? Could the same be true for my foot? I have the flexibility to stretch my foot a lot more when I'm holding it, but not the strength to hold the foot in that stretched position as soon as I take my hand off of my foot? I hope this makes sense. Quote Link to comment
