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.

Karen Logan has been teaching swimming to adults for over a decade. As someone who shared the frustrations described above, she decided to find out if there was a better way to swim. Along with her sister, Jan, she found out about The Alexander Technique, and specifically 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. 

People have come from as far as Birmingham, Northampton, Coventry, Cambridge, Leamington Spa and London to have lessons with Karen.
