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 experience. Students should get as many private Alexander Technique lessons as they can from a qualified teacher prior to attending an Ease on Skis workshop. During a workshop, Alexander Technique classes are given at the beginning of each day and private lessons are given at the day’s end. During the ski hours in between, students get group and semi-private ski lessons (usually 3 people at a time for an hour). When not taking lessons, they are encouraged to ski together in small groups, and to get help from ski assistants. Everyone is always encouraged to enjoy winter in the mountains. The Ease on Skis 2017 workshops will take place in Switzerland in February 2017. For information, click here.
“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.
