Another great lesson today and it all seemed to click. I’m now gliding effortlessly through the water with ‘mindful enjoyment’ for the first time in 63 years of swimming. I shall be practising the Shaw Method, referring to the videos, and putting it all to good use to enable me to take part in open water events for the upcoming years. I’ll be back for in a couple of weeks for a quick review and catch-up lesson. Thanks for your patience, enthusiasm and help.

I cannot believe how in six lessons, I’ve gone from being really quite terrified and having no confidence in the water, to thoroughly enjoying learning to swim. Edward is an absolute star and has patience. Joanne C

I set off for my first lesson with some trepidation as I am a slightly
disabled senior citizen. Edward immediately put me at ease. He was
constantly encouraging and showed infinite patience, demonstrating
techniques when necessary. I enjoyed my lessons and am grateful to
Edward for kindly teaching me a new skill. I have no hesitation in
recommending Edward as a teacher to any age group.

I never believed I could conquer my fear of water but with Edward’s tuition I most certainly have. The Shaw Method is the perfect way to learn or improve your stroke. Sara C

The Shaw Method lessons with Edward have been fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others. Jennie M

The positive recommendation for us to try Swim For Life was not misplaced. We could not possibly have had a better experience. Edward’s patience, excellent communication and interpersonal skills as well as his knowledge, experience and teaching ability all made for a brilliant time. The Alexander technique has not only greatly improved our swimming but also given us much more confidence and therefore enjoyment.  We are both hugely grateful and could not commend the whole experience highly enough.

Starting swimming lessons as an adult was an endeavour that I kept putting off, but once I had started it was easy – Edward made the lessons both instructive and relaxing. He has a very patient, encouraging and positive attitude, and was keen to tackle individual issues to help me make the most out of the lessons. His enthusiasm for swimming is infectious. I can happily say that I enjoy my time in the pool now, and look forward to using swimming as a tool to explore water activities such as scuba diving and surfing in the future. Thank you Edward.

Having a first-class swimming tutor makes all the difference. I was a confident swimmer before. I had lessons to improve my stroke and I’m so pleased with the way I now swim. Thank you Edward. James R
