Relaxing after stretching?

Hey guys,

 

My ballet teacher told me that you shouldn't fully relax and bend after a stretch because that apparently makes all the hard work redundant. Is this true? also he said that its really good to "fall asleep" in a stretch and hold it for as long as you can whilst watching tv or something, is this good for you?

 

Thanks :pinch:

I'm not understanding that at all. One cannot remain in a stretch indefinitely! The muscles need to stretch and then relax. And going to sleep in a stretch not good either.

lol k lets say im doing a barre stretch, what my teacher means is that you shouldn't drop ur leg to the ground instantly and start bending at the knees even though it feels good. he says that you should feel the burning sensation even after your stretch
