Exercise – Leaves (Lemons, Ballons)

The support is on both legs, knees slightly bent, arms extended, heels together with toes pointing outward. Slide forward, connecting the toes while maintaining the support on both legs.

The easiest way for this forward sliding is by simultaneously pushing one foot away from the other, starting with heels together and finishing the movement with toes connected. The initial push can be challenging, so it’s advisable for the instructor to assist beginners to maintain balance.

In this exercise, it’s crucial to keep the arms extended, knees slightly bent. By pushing both legs on the ice, let the feet slide sideways. Afterward, the beginner turns the toes inward, bringing the toes of one foot towards the toes of the other foot, bending the knees simultaneously. After the movement, place the feet parallel and repeat the action.
