For Instructors


I often address freezing and isolating when I'm working with participants on Standing Flats during an orientation. I try not to center the discussion around the idea of why it is incorrect. I feel it places workshop students in a position of defense, and that's not what I'm trying to do. Instead; I take the concept of "adding intensity" and strongly recommend four positive strategies for achieving better overall fitness. 1: Add resistance to any movement. Simple turns to the right can assist a student who is attempting to find balance and it increases the overall energy demand of the body. 2: Increase cadence only after resistance has been increased 3: Stand up: Instead of doing a seated movement, try a standing one. 4: Time: Try any (or all) of the strategies mentioned above and increase the amount of time that you want a rider performing within it/them.
