What are ways to reduce tension?


Recommended Posts

I'm always really tense in my cambres at barre, but it's not exactly my back...most of the time I'm tense in my neck, even though I know cambres are all about the back. I am also moderately flexible in developpes and grande plies, but my legs shake a lot even though I can do the exercise with ease! :(


I've heard that some people have used foam rollers to reduce tension, but that is all really almost a different language to me, and I don't really know where to go or what to do about being really tense. :unsure:

Technique is a means to an end, sarah_pirouettes. If you are trying to do a back bend, it will not work. Where are you instructed to look while you are performing cambré?

We are instructed to look to the side.

So we won't choke ourselfs.

Maybe that helps
