"I've prepared for you some basic acrobatics and movements that you can practice alone and with your teammates. I also give you some tricks, so you can learn how to get a good position in the basic lifts," explains Tiina Pesonen.

This coach from Finland has a Bachelor in sport studies. She also works during the summer with the famous team Musketeers and the 2018 World Champions, Marigold IceUnity.



 Ideas for your new programs
"It´s important to practice the right lifts techniques off the ice before doing it on the ice. Those acrobatics ideas and lifts get more content to your choreography and your programs. Tricks and lifts are a lot about timing, sufficient muscle strength, and good technique," adds Tiina Pesonen.


"If you have some injuries, leave all the risky movements away. Lifts practicing could be started about the age of 15. If you start it earlier, it should be under the supervision of adults."
