Stretching the Hip Flexor

Dd's teacher suggested to her that she should work at home on stretching her hip flexors in order to increase her stride in grande jete. Can anyone suggest some effective ways to do this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Coupe, here is a link to some pages on this subject. Not all of the posts deal specifically with suggested stretches, but some do. That said, I strongly recommend that either her teacher or a Pilates or Yoga instructor teach her the exercises and watch her to see that she is doing them correctly.

Thank you, Ms. Leigh, for the link! One more quick question for you - regarding pilates training with a certified pilates instructor , what is the ideal age to add that to regular training? Dd will be 11 soon.

 

Thank you again!

I'm not really sure, coupe, but I think it is fine for her age. :)
