Welcome to the Roller Skate Life Newsletter February 2019

This newsletter is presented by the Es Quint Foundation, powered by Quadsk8 International and supported by Ginger Skates.

Thank you for supporting our goals and activities. In case you just joined in, welcome on board and may your journey through life be a soulful one!

Free Flow!
The flow one brings into a pattern depends strongly on size, weight and length. And sometimes, even the specifications of the roller skates should not be underestimated as a dominant factor.
So, everyone has her or his own special flow. In fact, flow motion is just as unique for a person as a fingerprint.
By making the concept of form and function of postures and movements understandable, it becomes much easier to develop flow motion. At least, it shortens the whole learning process to experience a comfortable level of balance, quite massively.
Studying forms to eventually become formless and understanding function of movements in a safe and practical way, are both key elements in Soulful Fitness.
Save yourself a lot of time and experience the soulful fitness way, to get everything out of your roller skating sessions.
Full awareness.
Continuous perfect balance is practically impossible, but full awareness can be trained and obtained through repetitive exercise (repetition is the mother of skill). Roller skating is a playful way of challenging and controlling balance. The brain together with the entire proprioceptive  sensor system,  is immediately activated on the highest level possible. On roller skates, the brain shifts into survival mode and rapid adaptation is in full effect.

Free Flow.
Freedom of movement means freedom of expression; freedom of emotion and freedom of choice, to be whoever you want to be and to flow any which way you want to go. If there’s music, then let it guide you through the motion and syncopate with the groove and/or melody. If there’s only your heartbeat, go with that.
Roller Skate Training Keywords!

When someone is sending us this sheet, all the way from the USA, to show us how she is trying to learn some key Dutch words in order to be able to follow the Live Amsterdam Training Sessions from these past recent weeks, then dedication and determination gets a whole new meaning!
Lisa Peck Ratliff from Saint Louis, Oklahoma sure loves her Soulful Journey and we could not be more humbled by such hard work on wheels. Salute!

Motivational Quote by Carol.

When taking that step, the first one or the thousandth, each one counts. Always. The effort itself, the thought you put into it, the circumstances you create to make it happen. It all counts and adds up. Sure, it's easier to manoevre when you're in motion, but being concious about your steps, helps you stay dedicated.
As Carol Solomon said on her visit during one of our international seminars: `Once you go, you grow!`.
