    Awwww.... you need a hug to stop feeling like this

    Maybe if you tell us how you think about the movement (as in the steps you were either taught to do it or learned to do it) we can see if we can guide you on something that might help.

    Hey! Maybe you should sit back and relax a bit from trying those vertical eights. Concentrate on something else instead for a week, and then try again. Sometimes a break helps.

    I am useless with anything that should come from the left knee. Especially when I am in the class under the close watch of my teacher But the shimmies I do while I brush my teeth in the morning are much better. Because I don't try that hard then

    Hey This is awesome! I can shimmy while washing dishes and carrying mugs with coffee, but I fail each time when I try while brushing teeth! Suppose just need more practice! Any tips?

    Im ok with my figures of eight, back, forwards and vertical. The move I find hardest is circles whilst walking. Im fine with them on the spot, but as soon as I move I loose the circle. It did really frustrat me, but I spoke to my teacher and she said you can sometimes try and try and not do it and then one day it will just come...Im still waiting for the day!

    Lydia nailed it! It is probably because you want to brush and shimmy with the same pace, even though in the beginning it might be pretty difficult to catch up with the hand moving... So, keeping the correct posture will help you separate those two movements. You can also just try to shimmy with half the speed of your tooth brushing.

    Right, now you've got me curious .. I'm gonna shimmy next time I brush my teeth .. lol, I'll get back to you after :-)

    I teach a few ladies here, in my boonie town and some have trouble walking with the circles ... try, L leg out, half circle to the front, then R leg in, half circle to the back, L leg out, half circle to the front, then R leg in, half circle to the back ... think hula hoops too, cos you gotta keep that balanced..
