I teach swimming to people of all ages. I specialise in helping people overcome a fear of water.
My youngest pupil to date is 5 months and my oldest 89. I have a Amateur Swimming Association level two qualification and I am also trained as a Shaw Method swimming teacher. This blog is concerned with all aspects of swimming but it is mainly about the art and the meaning of swimming. It doesn’t have much to do with drills and laps and winning races. It has everything to do with the feeling of release and freedom that being in the water bring. I have always loved swimming but I have only been teaching swimming for about five years. Swimming has helped me through many difficult moments in my life. I believe that although the water does not solve problems, swimming does ease all troubles; mental, physical and spiritual. Swimming exercises almost the entire body – heart, lungs, and muscles – with very little joint strain.
This blog is called mindful swimming because it is about swimming in a conscious, aware fashion.
I teach in various pools in London. If you are interested in lessons please send me an e-mail.
