Hello Benjamin! Great class! I'm always working on getting more comfortable with upside down work because of the dances I have to perform. I was wondering I noticed in my tendon stretch regardless of my flexibility I'm lacking the strength to pull the carriage all the way in and get my hips overhead. Any suggestions on exercises to help me get there? Thanks! ✌🏽❤️
Everyone - thank you SO much for watching! HK I absolutely hope that anyone taking this session will experience increased trust and a sense of accomplishment in their skills — even and especially if a full handstand or a stomach jump is not in the cards (yet or ever). I am still working on nailing the effortless handstand that Carrie demonstrates here in my own body. Her strength and precision is truly inspiring! Please let me know how you get on.
Thank you Analia! Whoa, the Tendon Stretch. I'd say that Long Back Stretch on the Reformer done with straight arms (check out the second class in my Reformer progressions) and Pull Ups on the Wunda Chair both address the usual sticky points. Also, this class shows the set up and first building block for the Tendon Stretch. Start with that, and let me know if that brings up any other questions. We'll figure this out for you!
