I'm Jennifer McCamish, and today we are going to show you dance stretches to increase your flexibility. Maintaining flexibility is important because a flexible supple muscle tends to have fewer injuries and moves pain-free throughout your daily activities. This exercise is a great three in one stretch. Begin by kneeling, one foot forward. This is the psoas stretch. We're going to curl the pelvis under, press the back foot down into the floor. As you reach up and over the head, engaging the glute on the right side. This can help alleviate lower back pain and you should feel this stretching coming right in front of hip socket. Our next one moves into a quad stretch, leaning forward, making sure the knee is on top of the ankle, spiral back, catch the toe. Once you have the toe, play with the range. If this range is not possible for you, you can take a stretch strap, wrap it around the foot and hold it this direction. Our last exercise is our half split, sitting up tall, squaring the pelvis straight front, flexing that foot, reaching forward, getting into the hamstring stretch. You want to make sure the energy is reaching out the back of the tailbone, not curling forward and once this feel great, you can place the hands down if you feel comfortable trying to slide out to your full split, again keeping that pelvis nice and square to the front.
