The rink I'd be skating at has group power skating lessons now and then. I'd definitely keep my eye out for them. Not 1 on 1, not "ideal" in that sense, but if I'm going to wait for the money for a 1 on 1 I'll die before I get out there and start having fun. I already have a mentor of sorts who's been helping me with my stride, and I've made some beneficial changes for sure, but having a pro break it down for me would just be all the better.

Thanks for the tip.
