True water confidence as seen here is what we specialise in with a hands on approach the Alexander Technique can convey and embody a sense of deep relaxation and belonging in the water.
We teach children to swim on their backs so that they have immediate pool safety they can swim and breathe at the same time. The youngest child to float fully with out hands was 8 months old, we are going for the record now with his sibling now 7.5 months old.
We work on pool safety first teaching simple backstroke and then move them onto back crawl. After they have mastered that we teach them to swim on their front.
On their front we teach children to swim under water. So they may not be able to surface, to breathe until they are a bit older. Of course this depends on the amount of practise and lessons they have had.
We break the stroke down into its component parts easy to learn movements and positions. once mastered effortless components we put the full stroke together so every movement is is perfectly executed.
Mixed sibling classes
Mixed sibling classes can work very well when, we place the right levels together each child is taught from the level that they are. As we progress each child at the rate that ensures they never get distressed in the water. They gain greater confidence as we increase their ability to control their own bouyancy and breathing.
We teach life skills that become a meditation of mind, body and water. Our children are calm and can follow instructions easily as we give hands on guidance to gently encourage them to improve their skills.
