its not nasty and its not like it hurts her. she obviously would tell the teacher when to stop if it was hurting her and i think it looks beautiful. if you practice and work at it for a long time it comes easily to you. thats probably not even a stretch for her. sorry i just had to say that dont take it offensively plz.

My opinion... You need to remember that this is Russia and it is a modeling studio. In Russia customs are much different, as in many eastern countries, the student respects the teacher and respects their autority, for a student to tell a teacher to stop would be out of line; the teacher sets the boundries. Also you must remember this is a modeling studio and the girls (and guys) actually have to pay alot of money to become part of this studio. They modeling studio could cancel there agreement at anytime. The students want to make sure there in the good graces of the directors to ensure this does not occur.

Just my thoughts,

Greg

Thank you Greg for teaching some Russian manners- I've worked with Vladimir Artimov (Russian gold medalist) before; on stretching, and no, trust me, you cry before you tell a Russian to stop! LOL!
And eversince I was little, people told me that I should've been in rhythimic gymnastics.... NOW I see why- haha!

Greg was right, in Eastern European countries (Hungary, from where I am also)coaches usually don't ask the gymnast if a stretching is painful or not. So they really don't mind much if a gymnast cries out from pain while stretching. I think you can see the advantages in these training methods when you look at rhythmic gymnasts from Russia/Ukraine/Belarus/Bulgaria etc... One of my former schoolmates did RG for 12 years and now she really suffers from overstretching - so I think stretching too hard can be dangerous.

I don't think it is healthy to overstretch at a too young age. As everything else, your muscles, joints and tendons are not fully developed, and could easily be torn, stretched out of place or given permanent damage. My ballet teacher once told me that some sientists don't reccomend any stretching at all to kids under the age of 14.
However, i have been pushed like that myself when i was younger, although i don't think i was as flexible. Yes, it hurts, but i dont think any of my physical weknesses are cause by it either. Teachers should know their students body well enough to stop in time, so lets just hope thats the case every time.

Thanks Gregorious haha... what an odd name... hmm i like it. Yeah i went out on a limb to say what i said but it always appears that in eastern european countries and russia the teacher definitely wears the pants in the relationship HAHA. Yeah the teacher always seems to be leading the way rather than the student. I like the name.
