  1. Thank you for your help, Katie! I had reviewed that post as well. Based on it saying "inwardly rotate the lifted leg" I believe the hips should stay square and not open up. I love this pose but it challenges me both physically and mentally which is why I chose to work on it. I do believe abs have something to do with it. I also think it may be the butt and lower back? I could be way off here. I'll keep working at it!
  2. Hi everyone! I have a few questions about standing splits. 1. Should your hip open slightly or should it stay squared with the other hip? 2. I have the flexibility to do just about a full split on the ground but in the air is another story. I think it comes down to lack of strength in unknown muscles. Does anyone know what muscles and poses to help strengthen them?
  3. I've decided to work on my standing split for this month. I am able to do regular splits with little difficulty (after proper warm up) but standing split has always evaded me. I also do ballet and my teacher always comes over to me, helps me stretch and pushes my leg almost straight up so I have the flexibility but not the strength. Does anyone also have a similar issue? Any tips on strengthening activities/flows to help with standing split?
