I took a long time to learn to swim with many unsuccessful attempts along the way. Then, when I was 21 working in an American summer camp it was so hot that the only place to cool down was a lake. Eventually I learnt to love the cool water. I relaxed and started to swim all by myself! Now I love the feeling of weightlessness and freedom when swimming. And unlike other forms of exercise I always feel better afterwards.
Before I trained in Alexander Technique I started an ASA swimming teacher course, but was really disappointed in the approach. When I did the Shaw Method teacher course in 2004 I knew I had found what I was looking for. Now I enjoy teaching all levels of pupils and I value any improvement(s) however incremental.
