Life is All About Balance

Image result for balance images

Let’s face it, life can get hectic especially in the summer months when the kids are off from school and we are having to navigate our work-life balance. At Skater’s Quest, we are here to help your balance both literally and figuratively.

In order to be a better overall skater, you should always be working on your balance – on and off skates. You have so many opportunities throughout your day to work on your balance. We recommend that you hold in your core (suck in that stomach) and stand on one foot as much as possible – while in line at the grocery store, brushing your teeth, drying your hair, shaving, washing the dishes, etc. The practice possibilities are endless.

We also recommend that you schedule time for a stress relieving, outdoor skating lesson. Our lesson location at Jones Point Park is under the Woodrow Wilson Bridge so we skate in the shade and there is always a breeze coming from the river. Ahhhh.

Here are some classes that we have coming up for all ages and ability levels to help you take a healthy break and create balance:
