hart Posted October 6, 2006 Report Share Posted October 6, 2006 Last night in class, the teacher was working on reaching and lengthening the working leg. I have always struggled to understand what this concept means and knowing when I am actually doing it. She talked a lot about extending from the inner thigh and reaching through the heel. These concepts have always been so hard for me to comprehend. However, last night she corrected me manually and I felt my hip flexors, mainly my TFL and Psoas release, but they only released at the end of the tendue, when I imagined lengthening an extra millimeter or two. I think I have been gripping them, but I guess I still haven't really developed the non-gripped feeling. Last night, my leg in the hip joint felt so much more loose and mobile. Is there any other language to describe this phenomen that might help me with this concept because I guess I don't fully get "the extending from the inner thigh" concept all the time. I think I have more turn-out in my hip joint, but I think my turn-in muscles hinder it. Quote Link to comment
