Learning format

The Shaw Method offers a range of opportunities in which to experience The Art of Swimming from one to one bespoke lessons with Steven Shaw, group lessons over a six-week period focusing on individual strokes and weekend workshops.

All our lessons are tailored to different levels of confidence and ability and have been developed by Steven over a number of years to provide you with the best possible experience. All of them, regardless of your starting point, will enable you to change your approach to swimming and take you levels beyond which you thought were possible.

In partnership with Champneys – the celebrated health spa we also run weekend breaks and day workshops, led by Steven Shaw and his Team of elite trainers.

There is also the opportunity to enjoy a week-long swimming retreat in Portugal with our partners, Holmes Place led by Steven Shaw.. 

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

“Hands on correction and direct feedback. Works best for my learning style.”

“Steven somehow manages to keep things he has taught countless times appear fresh. The assistant offered the right amount of well-chosen comments, both to the group and particularly individually.”

“We went from simple exercises to the whole stroke in one day, which was amazing.”

“Peter made me feel relaxed and confident . He treated all the group equally and has a natural and easy way with a good sense of humour – which is always a big help.”
