If you’ve enjoyed Asha’s Youtube tutorials then an entire weekend of her patient and detailed teaching will open your eyes and body to what’s been missing in your skating and how to ‘level up’ with a clear pathway.
Check the workshop descriptions for detailed skills lists to help you decide what you should attend. Inline and quad skaters welcome. Asha will be wearing inlines but she is very familiar with quads and always teaches both in the same classes. Any differences in technique or practice will be explained.

Please Note: These classes are for intermediate level and above skaters. They are not appropriate for complete beginners.

Location for Saturday lessons:

Dublin YMCA, 53 Aungier Street, D02 CH96

Dublin Stops & Slides Sat 7 Oct 2023 @ 1000-1300

This 3 hour Masterclass will look at several essential stopping methods that every inline & quad skater should have in their repertoire (or be working towards).

What you’ll learn;

  • Plough + Stepping Plough Stop
  • T-Stop
  • Powerslide (inlines) & Backwards Toe Stop (quaddies)
  • Powerstop (or Turn stop variations)
  • How to control your speed (for future use on slopes) by combining different stopping skills and how to come to a complete stop in an emergency.

Quad skaters should have toe stops for this class. Inline skaters do not need a heel brake.


Dublin Stride & Turns Optimiser Sat 7 Oct 2023 @ 1400-1600

Every inline & quad skater spends most of their time on skates JUST SKATING! However, if your skating stride lacks correct technique, you will not get the fitness benefits that skating offers and you may create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ particularly if you skate distances (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge).

What you’ll learn;

  • An efficient push, comfortable glide & a regroup that doesn’t V.
  • The Stride Training Sequence. The drill to keep you on track for months/years to come.
  • Parallel Turns (in both directions).

“This class transformed my skating. Feels great to be on the right path now and I understand what a workout skating should be if you’re doing it right.” – Analise (46) Belgium

PLEASE NOTE: This group lesson is appropriate for every level of skater except complete beginners.

Dublin Backwards & Transitions Sun 8 Oct 2023 @ 1000-1200

Location: Grand Canal Square

This lesson is for those new to backward skating or those who have taught themselves but skipped the basics and are stuck on more complicated backwards moves.

This class will reveal your “one-sidedness” if you are already skating backwards and how to equalise this natural unevenness.

In this workshop you’ll learn;

  • Several propulsion techniques
  • How to steer correctly
  • How to safely glide backwards
  • How to stop backwards (2 methods)
  • Mohawk Transitions (forwards to backwards and backwards to forwards).

This compact course will give you content that will keep you busy training for months but with a clear path to backwards proficiency.

PLEASE NOTE: This group lesson is NOT appropriate for beginner level skaters.


Dublin Wizard Skating Sun 8 Oct 2023 @ 1300-1500

This Wizard class is a natural continuation from our Backwards & Transitions class and looks at developing your backwards skating so you can transition multiple ways with confidence & link together skills for impressive looking Wizard flows.

You can do this workshop on a flat set up or a rockered Wizard set up. Suitable only for inline skaters.

What you'll learn:

  • 4 essential training positions for backwards success
  • Gazelles (forwards & backwards)
  • Assisted 3 Turns (Cheetahs) - preparation for 3 Turns (Lions)
  • How to safely increase the speed of your Mohawk transitions

The best preparation for this class is to attend our Backwards & Transitions lesson to ensure you haven’t skipped any foundation skills.


“I had the pleasure of attending Asha’s skating workshops in Melbourne and her way of teaching “the Skatefresh method” is unlike anything else. Even seasoned skaters at the workshops have gained new knowledge and I’ve unlocked stopping methods that were previously alien to me! Totally worth every minute and the skills gained will be invaluable for years to come.”
Zeno Kobica – Google Review

“Attended the backwards transition class in Perth and it was a lot of fun. Asha broke down the steps to skating backwards and made it easier to understand 🙂 Will definitely be practicing the different steps to skate backwards and transition better :)”
– Joan Chan – Google Review
