About the lesson
My greatest satisfaction always comes from seeing my clients enjoy their progress. Experience the difference between learning to swim and learning to swim the right way. Have a chance to become a swimmer who is powerful, graceful and effortless with any of the four strokes.
Whether working with nervous beginners who need to conquer their fear of water or with more advanced swimmers who want to reach triathlon or other swimming goals, I am certain that I can help you improve your results through supportive and experienced instruction.
I will help you develop body awareness with breathing techniques and swimming confidence in any of the four swimming strokes or synchronised swimming skills covering figures & sculling positions that you wish to achieve.
I also teach swimming based on principles of the Alexander Technique together with the focus on body awareness and its alignment and how to use body more effectively. This technique of swimming focuses to generate Alexander Popov’s 3 R’s : Rhythm, Relaxation and Range of movement and is good for clients who are recovering after an operation of the knee, hip or any other injury. The emphasis of this type of swimming is focus on a quality of experience rather than distance or speed and building better body awareness by transforming swimmers’ relationship with the water.
- Synchronised Swimming
Experienced in teaching professional athletes, people with special needs, adults, children and babies. I have also had a chance to work with one of our county's swimming Olympians Mr. David Wilkie - MBE during the 1990s and was part of the team campaign before London 2012 to narrow the gap in gender inequality in sport between men and women in synchronised swimming. Now men are able to swim in mix duets and teams at National and International competitions. With that came the achievement of our first mixed duet winning a gold medal for Great Britain at FINA World Masters Championships in South Korea in 2019.
I was nominated for the London Award 2013 in the category Coach of the Year 2013 across the UK and have been recognised as an ambassador for quality of teaching.
I am very proud of what I have achieved with clients who have put an awful lot of commitment and dedication into reaching their goals.
