Leg Stretch~

After working out, I always do this leg stretch.

In a Dance Teacher Magazine article, found here, they suggest a safer, more effective option.

I can't quite get my pregnant body to do that right now, but I had my students do it last week, and they said it REALLY worked.

Try it out next time you stretch!~

The new stretch looks like it puts less stress on the knee. If it works well it would probably be a better choice.

So what is unsafe about the first option? That is what I always do- but if it is unsafe definitely will change.

I don't think it's totally harmful, but when you do the 1st stretch it tends to make your lower back sway which can cause injury to your spine.~
