Slow is most certainly Pro

A technique I found useful (depending on the cockpit layout):

Stand with tiller between legs, steer with legs, this allows hands to be free to manipulate throttle and lines. Generally, manuvering into a slip requires small steering inputs, so the leg method works fine.

I also find it easier to "Prairie Dog" while standing up.
