This is coming along great Manon! The split can be a challenge especially when it billows out. What will help with that is to make sure the silk you’re standing on in your can can climb is in the center of your foot so your heel/ toes are exposed versus covered up by the silk. It will help to start the can can climb with your body a bit closer to the silk so it’s easier to scoop the tail higher up the thigh with your straight leg. We will go over that tomorrow at the QnA! Then as you enter the split, be sure to ‘turn out’ your front leg/foot so the pole is pressing against the inside of your foot versus the outside. You can also try placing that front foot before pulling up, which might be easier. Keep up the good work!
