Total Immersion Swimming

Total Immersion Swimming

Possibly the world leader in teaching stroke technique to triathletes, age-group, Masters, and fitness swimmers of all ages and abilities.  Developed by American swim coach Terry Laughlin, it emphasizes  moving through the water efficiently. Total Immersion conserves energy and focuses on balance and streamlining in the water, so that any energy used for propulsion becomes much more effective.

The Art of Swimming is the home of the Shaw Method which applies the principles of the Alexander Technique to swimming. This method works on the relationship between the mind and body and teaches greater body awareness, promotes freedom of movement, and helps to prevent strain and injury.
