actionwoman Posted July 11, 2011 Report Share Posted July 11, 2011 I notice that when I'm doing plies in fifth or fourth position, one of my legs can't go as deep as the other one and I can't keep my hips square (one is higher than the other). One of my instructors told me to only go as low as the less flexible leg, but I'd like to be more flexible. It doesn't happen in first or second position and when I force my back leg into more of a turnout, the depth improves a little bit. Are there any other ways besides calf and soleus stretches to help me improve my plie depth? I did the measurements listed in Perfect Pointe and my right leg is a full centimeter closer to the wall than my left, which I believe has to do with an injury that resulted in tendonitis a couple of years ago.
