June discovers a new approach to front crawl and takes it into open water.
“ When I arrived I could already happily put my face in the water etc – but swimming made me breathe hard and I was ‘end-gaining’ – it was all a bit physical!!”
In these posts we want to encourage anyone who’d like things to be easier in the water. You may be a non-swimmer struggling to trust the water, an improver trying to understand how the strokes work, a recreational or fitness swimmer who tires easily, perhaps with aches and pains, or a swimming teacher looking for a different approach. What is it about being in water that makes us happy and benefits our health? Can we change how we think in water so that our experience improves? Where does our focus need to be? Thanks for reading, Ian and Cheryl
Just wanted to thank you both for another great few days improving my swimming. You're both fantastic at providing gentle and consistent encouragement and advice. Like my last visit here I just want to get home and back to my local pool with your words still ringing in my ears.~Dawn/London/March 2017 Read more testimonials
The enjoyment benefits were immediate and enduring.
Now, two years later, I very much enjoy swimming, so much so that I wanted to be confident enough to swim outdoors…
And that is coming into place this year – I swam in Anglesey on a yoga and wild swimming weekend. And this video was me today in a tidal pool in Cliftonville, near Margate in Kent…
Thank you for helping me to get to this place!
