About the Method

 

Beautiful skating technique can be learned.  The foundation of a skater’s technique is created from confident balance on the blade.  It requires knowing how to create a vertical axis skeletally.

The GravityGlide(R)
 method of skating:


  • Uses The Feldenkrais Method principles to create new movement habits


 Works “from the blade up,” so every skater knows how to maintain balance while creating efficient speed


  •  Defines precise placement of weight on the blade based on function . 


Because all elements of GravityGlide(R) skills work together, advanced skills are built on a strong foundation and become understandable and  attainable.   Unique movement exercises on ice were created for this workshop and are grounded in Feldenkrais learning principles to change the mind-body pattern. 

The GravityGlide(R) Method was designed for coaches and their adult skaters who wish to make substantial improvements in balance and speed.  With GravityGlide(R), every coach will know how to create progressive skill development and every adult can improve their  skating to develop a lifelong enjoyment of the glories of gliding.
