Skate Anyone?

This is a Body Sculpting pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 5827)

I am also a personal trainer and find that many people do not have good core stabilizing muscles. Try this in your next class to help improve core stabilization.

Anybody know what a "spiral" is in figure skating? If not have your class balance on left leg and slowly and controlled lift the right leg up as high as it can go (90 degrees). Supporting leg should be straight but not locked. Hold this position for a count of 10. Switch to the other leg. To make things more difficult after they master that, try lowering the body on the supporting leg. - slowly (4 count down, 4 count up) for a set. Guaranteed they'll feel it. Then switch to the other leg. Variations for your class would of course be to have the free leg at a smaller angle - maybe 45 degrees rather than 90.

Let me know if you like it.
