    Default Warming up your back and knees?

    Hi all,

    Can any of you give me some advice about ways to warm up your back and knees before dancing?

    Just wondering as I sit in an office all day and I think my knees and back could really do with a good stretch and warm up before I dance.

    Thanks for your help

    Do you know about the yoga sun salute? If not, what you do is you eventually get to where you bend down trying to touch your toes (don't push it), then flat back, bringing your hands to your knees, then touch your toes again, then stoop down, then up to where you touch your toes again, stoop down again, touch your toes again, stoop part of the way down, flattening your back into a warrior pose with your arms at a diagonal forward, then touch toes again, then come up one vertebra at a time. Again, don't push yourself but you will see a stretch in your hamstrings in backs of your knees.

    Hi Greek Bonfire,

    Thanks for your reply. I think I do know that one, it's at the start of Jillina's 'Shape up and hip out' DVD. Good advice, thanks

    I use that one a lot because it just works so good!
