Swimming without stresS
learn to swim, or not to swim
Let go and enjoy the support of water instead of struggling against it, on our intensive (but sensitive) one to one course in beautiful West Wales.
Progress with us isn’t about going faster or further but prevention from going wrong, and increased enjoyment of the process, both of learning and of moving through the water.
With the pace of an intensive course, you can make a great deal of progress in a short space of time. But there’s balance between momentum and input overload so we never do more than two sessions in the water per day.
While we hope you’ll want to practise in the quiet pool between lessons because you’re enjoying the water, rest is equally important. You may find that what you expected to be physically challenging turns out to be relaxing, but the mental effort of learning to swim can be tiring. You’ll need time just to absorb what you’ve been doing, or not doing!
Our aim is to help you improve your relationship with the water by changing the way you coordinate yourself. We’ll work with you in the water, going back to basics, helping you to release unnecessary tension, guiding you through new movements and teaching you to swim without stress.
We have exclusive use of the pool at Croft Farm for your lessons, which makes a big difference to your learning experience – privacy, peace and quiet ...Read More
