Ease on Skis is a fresh approach to how to learn alpine skiing. Simpler, easier and safer than many traditional approaches, it draws on basic principles of human movement learning first discovered in the Alexander Technique. Ease on Skis was developed by Erik Bendix.
Ease on Skis Workshops
Ease on Skis workshops are available to anyone wishing to improve their skiing, no matter what their level of skill or experience. Participants are encouraged to get private Alexander Technique lessons prior to attending an Ease on Skis workshop. During a workshop, students first get group and semi-private ski lessons in the morning hours when snow conditions are best. When not taking lessons, participants are welcome to ski together in small groups, and to get help from ski assistants. Alexander Technique private lessons are given late in the day to untangle any build-up of anxiety and to allow learning to unfold in secure indoor surroundings. Spending winter in the mountains is a pleasure in itself, and is for all to enjoy. The Ease on Skis 2019 workshop will take place in Schladming, Austria from February 2nd to 9th, 2019.

“There is a mysterious joy I felt when I made that last run, with the turns going so well, at last. Oddly, it carried over into my walking and even my driving…everything involving motion and forward movement… Hugely gratifying.”
What others say about us
…thank you for an inspiring week! I particularly liked the fullness and the simplicity of Erik’s ski program and how everything ‘clicked into place’ and matched my previous skills. Everything was understandable.
I can ski the field with more relaxation and control, I look more graceful and organized, and I feel much better at the end of the day.
