First, you need to think of the area bellow your belly which goes under your bottom area to be the soil, the area of great strength. Your feet are the roots, and your upper body is the flower. The “roots” are reaching for the floor, spreading in every direction. Your arms need to reach up high. These tips will help you have a great posture.
Do some plies while moving one of your arms and the other is supported by the barre. Flex your knees after you cross your legs like in this video above. Move your arm as wide as possible, then switch the hands on the barre. Come into the fifth position and repeat.
Rest your hand on the barre while the other arm moves, making a demi-plie. Your loose arm will go up and side to side. Bend over but do not let your bottom go back or your legs go behind you. Recover and bend your knees only half way.
