    I’m getting to a point of frustration so I would love to stop there, I for the life of me can not hold a crossed knee, my foot won’t stay. I can do a crossed ankle easily, I can sit lean back, all’a that stuff but with my knee it just slides off I can’t get it to stay crossed, and i can’t figure out if it’s a position thing, or a strength thing, any ideas?

    For beginners it is a good idea to hold your foot as you learn to control those muscles. So grab the foot of the top/crossed leg with the arm that is on the same side. SQUUUUEEEEEEZZZZEEEE your thighs and calves and lean back all you want. I did that trick in one of my videos, it helps when you don’t have super strong poling muscles yet.

    A good tip that will become extra important with moves like the brass monkey and marley: always be really careful when holding the foot. Pulling on it too hard puts a lot of stress on the knee. Just listen to your body. If you feel strain in the knee, go easy. It’s a little safer to grab around the shin above the ankle.

    ya i would be careful grapping your foot. all i can say about it is go slow, keep that foot as high up on your thigh as you can ( the foot/ankle that is crossed) for the most secure grip, you don’t want your foot sliding past your knee or you could end up on the floor, make sure your pole AND your legs are warm but dry, wear short shorts, and USE A MAT! GOOD LUCK!!! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif
