The initial learning stage
The student is introduced to the skill or step.
The awkward use stage
The student has an increased awareness, but feels awkward and frequently experiences difficulty.
The conscious use stage
The student is able to do the skill or step more effectively and easily; however, even though the task may look good, it must Still be thought through when performed.
The natural use stage
This skill or step is done with ease and is spontaneous, comfortable and creative. This level is reached only after a period of time in which the student has continued to use and practice the skill.
Every time you learn something new, your body will always go through the Stages of Learning. It is natural for you to progress through these stages.
