Transform Your Relationship With The Water

the Art of Swimming

1510The Shaw Method, founded in 1987 by Steven Shaw, applies the proven principles of the Alexander Technique to swimming. Learn to swim in a way that keeps your spine and body in perfect alignment. Glide gracefully through the water, improve your health and master one of the most profound life skills.

“As always, the perfect mix of fundamental principles and more advanced skills, delivered in an efficient, yet unhurried style”

“I especially liked the way the method (in this case crawl) was broken down into clear, concise exercises which I could do.  My body and mind became increasingly confident in the water and with the process.”

” I understood what was meant and, if I didn’t, felt it was explained in a way I could, with pure compassion, clarity and expertise.”

“The workshop was brilliant. Everything was very clearly explained and demonstrated. Any questions were answered clearly and helpfully.”

“It was clear that all the teachers really cared about what they were doing. All in all, the whole day was a superb experience and reinvigorated my desire to swim. I will certainly be booking more Art of Swimming courses in the future.”

“All the teachers were very clear at all times verbally and in demonstrating in order to illustrate points.”

“Always interesting and enough variety to keep students interested.”

“Very clear explanations throughout, including why we were doing particular activities or practices.”

“Course leader and assistants all very knowledgeable and encouraging. They were able to identify issues and advise accordingly.”

The Shaw way to fly across an African Creek aged 70

Swimming the butterfly across an African creek wouldn’t feature highly on many ‘to do’ lists.

But for Abdul Jamal, a chartered accountant from Leytonstone, East London, ‘flying’ across the Kilifi Creek in Kenya, was the perfect way to celebrate his 70th Birthday, in April this year.

“Swimming has been really good for me,” he explains. “My health and wellbeing – both physical and mental – have greatly improved since taking it up eight years ago. And a lot of that is to do with the butterfly stroke. Its grace and beauty make it my favourite.”

What I love about teaching the Shaw Method – Steven Shaw

Teaching the Shaw Method for me is an incredibly interesting and rewarding way to earn my living. One of the things I love the most about my work is enabling people to move beyond what they ever thought possible…I often say if you teach someone to swim the front crawl they will shake you by the hand and say thank you, but if you teach someone to do a sustainable and enjoyable butterfly you have made a friend for life.
