1. If I'm Doing the Courses, Do I go through them all in one day?
Go through each one carefully pause them if you need more time. After you do the stretching routine and you are warmed up, do as many as you have the time and energy for. (it's a lot to do in 1 day. pace yourself , try to absorb and master each module.) If you are tapped into your body it will let you know when you have had enough for 1 day. Always listen to that. They are set up with a certain sequence each stretch or training exercise preparing the body for the next.......When done correctly you will see real flexibility training is a workout with-in itself. You are awakening areas that have not be activated before.
2. How many days do you suggest doing the initial warm up/stretching sequence before progressing to the condensed/advanced stretching courses?
After you feel you can comfortably go through the " Flexibility at Any Age” course and "Flexibility For Dancers Held Back By Tightness" and have mastered it somewhat. Most importantly, listen to your body’s inner knowing and move forward step by step
3. Regarding Pacing for Younger Children?
I have worked with 8 year olds that have more focus and stamina than a 25 year old. Everyone is truly different and should go at their own pace. It is important to allow your child to go at their own rate. Keep it light and fun this way, they can enjoy it with no pressure and be eager for more.
4. What if you have trouble balancing?
It is helpful to be near a wall and have chairs or other objects they can hold onto to steady themselves. The balance will come with time after gentle steady repetition.
5. Regarding pacing?
Set up regular days/ practice times schedule and mark it on your calendar until you have Mastered and completed the course. Like you would do with setting up any class schedule or regular practice or going to the gym or for a run. Consistency is key.. When time allows you can set up you are attending a 3-4 day intensive.
6. After completing a course package or individual course what’s next?
The courses are there for you to login and train with at any time. Your will have forward momentum and positive muscle memory going by now. To keep progressing you can go to the next level of courses.. Important: Keep referring back to the courses that your feel your mind and body need. This is not a do the course a few times and be done. It is a life style just as going to the gym, dance class, practice, running to keep the body in balance and feel yourself evolving.
