I met Dominik on my first trip to Austria with the British Disabled Ski Team. He really helped build my confidence, my skiing improved considerably through the week. He was patient, calm, and made the learning process so much fun! We worked hard at off-snow complementary training, with additional physio & massage to ensure my disability didn’t affect skiing performance. Would highly recommend him!

 We are both single leg amputees, I am below knee, and my husband is above knee.  We had never skied before, and both wanted to ski wearing our prostheses.  Dom was determined to help us achieve this and with a lot of patience, understanding and encouragement he succeeded! It’s great to be able to share a sport with our kids, and we have had two amazing family skiing holidays and are looking forward to our third. We would recommend Active Therapy to anyone, as we know Dom will endeavor to help you achieve your goal.

 We had tried for a couple of years to get my eldest daughter to ski, in desperation despite no recognised disability I contacted Disability Ski. We met up with Dom at the Chill Factore who, rather than putting her straight on skis chatted and looked at her posture, within the first few minutes he’d established a problem with the muscles in her legs. They went out onto the snow, Cerys was not very enthusiastic, she had previously hated skiing and was ready to accept that she would just never do it. Straight away Dom recognised that she was not going to make it easy for him and he humoured her up the lifts, by the end of the first lesson they were skiing together in a basic snowplough. We had about 6 lessons and by that time she had built up enough confidence to slowly traverse down the slope but the highlight was seeing her enjoy it and even laughing if she fell. Dom has a fantastic manner with children, he has great fun with them but completely understands them and stays in charge of the lesson.

Fortunately for us we had booked a holiday to Morzine which is where Dom was due to spend the winter. As we’d had such a bad experience in ski school previously Cerys didn’t want to go back in so Dom agreed to come over and give her some lessons. The challenge was to complete the green run back to the hotel by the end of the week. She exceeded this by skiing the blue run down to village! Her face at the bottom of the run is one which I will never forget, she was so proud of herself. This was not just about skiing it was a matter of self-confidence, which only came with Dom’s support. It was a fantastic holiday that was made by the fact that both of my children enjoyed the skiing.

Dom also skied with other members of a party from all abilities and everyone came back feeling that they’d really improved. I would most definitely recommend Dom, he will push you to improve but you also have great fun. All the children still talk about him the only problem is none of them want to go back to ski school they all want lessons with Dom!!

 We first met Dominik at the Rossendale dry slope where our son Isaac made his first tentative moves on skis. My husband and I love skiing and really wanted our children to be able to ski with us. However, Isaac has physical difficulties with coordination, poor muscle tone and hypermobility in combination with difficulty in concentration. It seemed unlikely that Isaac would progress enough for us all to ski together. However, after Rossendale Isaac moved to Xcape (indoor snow slope) and with Dominik’s skilled teaching and patience, he has progressed way beyond our expectations. Dominik left us to go to Morzine last year and Isaac still asks when we can see him again. This year our family plan to visit St. Anton and Isaac and Yolande are so excited to be skiing with Dominik again.

 Dominik Jonas has worked with Oakwood High School several times providing excellent ski tuition abroad and in England. Dominik arranged for our pupils to visit Prague, Czech and South West Poland introducing the group to well organised activities, booking excellent accommodation and ensuring all the group had a great time. Oakwood High school is for pupils with complex learning difficulties and would highly recommend Dominik.

 Dominik Jonas przez kilka lat współpracował z Oakwood High School świadcząc wysokiego standardu usługi z zakresu instruktażu i treningu narciarskiego na terenie Anglii oraz ośrodków narciarskich w Europie. Zorganizował on również dla nas wyjazd do Pragi i południowo-zachodniej części Polski. Cały pobyt był znakomicie zorganizowany: atrakcje turystyczne, zajęcia sportowe, rewelacyjne zakwaterowanie. Sprawił, że każdy z uczestników był bardzo zadowolony, a nie jest to łatwe, jako że w zajęciach w mojej szkole uczestniczą uczniowie ze złożonymi trudnościami w nauce. Wysoce polecam serwis świadczony przez Dominika.
