    Default Stretching riddle : Can you help solve it?

    hi
    i teach fysio-drama at the national danish actingschool, and i have a student who have the following problem. when she is laying on her back, feet together and bent knees(butterfly position) her knees are 30 cm over the floor and she cant relax them further down.same thing when she is on her stomach in the "frog" position.if pelvis is on the floor, her feet is 30 cm above it. the riddle comes here: she can do front and sidesplit without problems, and her hamstrings is just as flexible. she fold correct in the hips and can reach the floor with flat hands and straight back.
    can anyone from this give me/her a diagnosis?
    in respect kim

    threat response, perhaps, that is causing tightness such that the muscles are not allowing the position to be achieved (but why is achieving this position important??)

    hi mc
    thx for answering. well its not that these positions are very important, was just curious cause i have a hard time figuring out which muscles that can keep the legs in that tensed position, knowing she is so flexible.
    but it could be wonderful for her if there was a solution, cause she meditates and have the same problem when she sits on her meditation pillow. mostly because in that position its necessary that the knees are lower than the hips.

    well i'd suggest forgetting about working on the limbs while they're in that posture and working around them to see if it is threat related.

    I'd try some z drills like ankle tilts and toe pulls, knee work and hip circles. retest after each one by assuming the posture to see what creates better ROM or not and use that as part of the practice.

    best
