Guest Aria Posted March 13, 2008 Report Share Posted March 13, 2008 I didn't get to go to ballet last week because I was sick, so last night was my first ballet class in 12 years... I thoroughly enjoyed it, but oh my how sore I am today! I was never particularly flexible but oh my goodness I've stiffened up... I almost couldn't get my foot up on the barre for barre stretches, and the one time when I went to do it, my hip completely cramped up... Certainly is going to be something I've got to work on! Any suggestions on the best stretches to start doing at home to help? I think the being stiff was part of what made the rest of class rather painful at times (I mean things that I would have never thought could possibly be painful were - it was so weird!). I remember a lot, and its like there's part of me inside that knows what to do, but the outside is too stiff to cooperate (which is frustrating - it would be one thing if I was just learning and therefore a bit sloppy and uncoordinated, but when you can feel how far off of correct you are, and can't seem to do anything to correct it - that was rather frustrating...)
