I trained swimming for 15 years at the National level which makes my teaching very technically correct.I have been a swim coach for 9 years.
For the last 3 years I am working for ESA https://www.eliteswimmingacademy.co.uk giving a quality lessons to children and adults.
I cover all aspects of swimmer development: physical, psychological, and social. My class is a good place for development of specific areas such as coordination, stamina, respiratory system and sensory integration. People with difficulties are warmly welcome. My strong advantage is a quick implementation of the most effective methods according to clients abilities and levels. When I teach children I always try and work with their imagination, telling a story and playing games, which are actually all the proper exercises and skills but made with much more fun!
Besides elementary teaching I am able to create workouts for swimmers based on abilities, analysing strokes and technique. Many triathlonist already got technical support at my sessions.
This class is my own invention. I am using all my aquatic bodywork knowledge. It is dedicated for adults and children that just want to enjoy being in the water while having a proper exercises. Fun ONLY!
This class is all about enyoing one’s bodies in the water element not only throught swimming but through play, games, playing tricks and lots of different exercises that you don’t usually see at the swimming lessons. By this you will be able to exercise at many different levels physical; lungs capacity, cordination, movement behavior; psychological stimulation brain activity,confidence, sensory integration; relaxation,; social playing together as a team as well as a fair play rivarly.
You would be able to recognize different emelements of land/water body work such as ball games, synchronised swimming, yoga, dance, relaxation WATSU and many more.
