The Shaw method of swimming is a unique approach to being in the water based on principles of the Alexander Technique. There are many effective and fun practices we use to develop your swimming.
It is suitable for everyone who wants to improve their relationship with water from non-swimmers to triathletes. We focus on the way we move in the water looking at buoyancy, efficiency and propulsion.
Clare Hughes from Brighton, U.K. is a very experienced teacher of the Alexander Technique and Shaw Method. She is involved with Shaw Method training and CPD workshops and works closely with Steven Shaw. This is her 6th visit to Cape Town.
