      One of the very first activities I participated and learnt very early on. Still use these today for a variety of purposes. Focussing on the spotting stance itself, it can be really useful when pointing out to participants the importance of being in balance for whatever situation. Demonstrate variations on them for archery, bike riding, surfing… any activity really can be heightened through the skill of spotting and the importance of being in balance… could be something you might feel like incorporating in your program. Feel free to ask

        You’re right David, and thanks for sharing. It just takes a little thought to connect any experience to important learnings for our groups. Please, anyone, reach out if you’re struggling to think of a way in which a particular experience could amplify the learning in your program.
