Adults are ardent and enthusiastic students and they have a lifetime of experiences written in their minds and bodies that affect the learning process. Children tend to skate viscerally and learn by modeling, while adults seek understanding before application. In short, adults want to know WHY and HOW.
With that in mind, Adult Skating SOS addresses that teaching adults requires specialized skills including knowledge of kinesiology, physics and the ability to articulate in a clear, comprehensive system.. To complement, SOS also recognizes that muscle patterning and play help adult skaters return to visceral learning to access joy, flow and ease can manifest. SOS does not correct “symptoms” of a problem, it is a simple, effective, systematic way to elicit understanding and clarity and success.
