Why I dislike first position

Dancer with hypermobility

In yoga my teacher recently commented I have hyperextended legs. I did not know what she means and did some googling and got to your blog. I also do ballet - my legs arent as bad as this but I find getting my feet together in first position and in parallel somewhat difficult (I have to bend my knees a little). I always thought it was my fat thighs - now I know different. Thanks for your blog, its really interesting and informative. I'm 31, I have danced for years (just as a hobby) I also do Iyengar yoga and Pilates so I relate to a lot of the things you are talking about.
