My DD has severe hyper mobility; she passes the EDS flexibility test with flying colors. She’s a level 4 and it has been a frustrating journey for her. She can do all of the skills, but has a hard time pushing her knee caps down. Her straight leg doesn’t look straight and the judges dock her big time for this. We try to work with her on learning what a looked knee and a tight body feels like.
Anyone have any encouragement or advice on how to teach this? I feel bad that something basic like body tightness is so hard for her to get.
