MOVING IN THE FOUR DIRECTIONS 

 

 The hands and feet move in the four directions and vertically, into the plane of the hill, and the direction of travel, changing planes to start the new turn and release the edges of the skis.

 

Done slowly, as the hands tilt and turn, each part of the body follows, creating a weave like wind blowing over tall grass; the rhythm of the new pole swing beginning the flow into the new turn.

 

Harmonious, coordinated, movement of the arms and legs through the four directions create spiraling motions into the new direction of travel. These spiraling motions through the 4-directions are the athletic gifts displayed as you Ski In Harmony ®.

 

Use the Pole Tipping sequence, from lesson 3, in a rythmn, to develop flow.
