Our Approach

Swimming is one of the most enjoyable forms of exercise. Practised correctly, the non weight-bearing effect of the water allows a whole body, low impact activity. Sadly, many of us are taught at a young age in a hands-off manner, in groups too large to have any individual attention. Later in life, many people find themselves trying to enjoy swimming, but find themselves anxious in the water, without the stamina to swim for very long. They may give up, in frustration, with a strained neck and tired shoulders.

Jan Jordan has been teaching swimming to adults for over 12 years. After learning The Alexander Technique, as a pupil,  she discovered  Shaw Method of Swimming and Watsu (Water Shiatsu). The Shaw Method of Swimming, a technique, devised by Steven Shaw, that applied the discoveries of F.M. Alexander to the water. The technique made it enjoyable to swim, for longer and without straining the body. She subsequently spent the next three years studying the Alexander Technique to become an Alexander Technique Teacher. From her training she has developed the baby swimming and Therapeutic Alexander technique in water.
