London is the home of Steven Shaw, the architect of Shaw Method, and so, if you are looking for a private lesson with the master, you're in the right place. Steven teaches regularly at Laboratory Spa, Hendon, Laboratory Spa, Muswell Hill, Nuffield City and Nuffield Paddington.
The beauty of a private lesson with Steven is that you can learn whatever you would like to learn. Whether you would like to build confidence, learn to swim, or prepare for a competition/open water event Steven can help you. He can help you improve your swimming, and teach you new strokes. Steven is also best placed to update you on all the very latest developments in front crawl, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly as informed by his own swimming and experimentation. He offers private lessons for all ages from babies upwards.
The first lesson usually starts with a Shaw Method SwimCheck™ in which Steven will discuss your medical and swimming history, analyse your body alignment and relationship with the water, and assess the efficiency of your existing stroke, if appropriate.
Remember that Steven teaches in the water so he is on hand to support you, and able to offer demonstrations of the practices he would like you to do.
If you would like to learn with a friend, Steven also offers shared lessons as long as both of you are of a similar ability and would like to work on the same practices. Please note that the cost of sharing a lesson will not be half the cost of a one-to-one session. We offer shared lessons at all our venues.
