Would you like to have Asha’s expert eye on your skating without having to pay her usual £60 an hour private lesson rate? Now you can with this special One Day Intensive skate class where over 6 hours of tuition you will be guided through a variety of skills and techniques, and at the end have class notes to help guide your practice in the weeks to come.
The focus will be on fully understanding the one thing that connects ALL skills and makes all moves and tricks easier to learn. When you have this in place, everything you learn and all the practice you do become very productive and you see results much faster. It takes time to fully integrate this approach and to break old habits in the body so this immersion in your skating over one day will do all that and more.
About the Improver/Intermediate One Day Intensive
Below is an example of the skills you will learn:
- Speed skating and creating more with less.
- How to deal with increasing speeds, with or without a heel brake.
- Acceleration and Forward Crossovers
- Backwards skating, transitions and basic stops (appropriate to your level). No backwards experience necessary.
- We will end with a ‘tricks’ workshop where I will ask participants beforehand to send me their desired trick and I’ll see how many ‘mini tutorials’ I can give on the day.
The timetable is 10am – 1pm and 2.30pm – 5.30pm. This course is recommended for various ability levels as Asha can easily select harder and easier exercises for each skill we are covering.
The usual class prerequisite for the Improver/Intermediate class is reasonable stopping using either the heel brake, T-Stop or toe stop drag (quads) methods. You can skate but you want more speed and turning is probably fine in one direction and a bit ropey in the other!
The skate day it suitable for inline and quad skaters.
