Would you like to be able to swim a mile or more with easy grace, enjoy every stroke, and feel energized, not exhausted when you finish? Would you like to make swimming the best part of triathlon or swim confidently in open water? Our Effortless Endurance workshop will help you achieve those goals, give you a stroke you’ll be proud of, and a satisfying way to enjoy great health.

The following swimmers will benefit from this workshop
Swimmers who are stuck on a plateau or need motivation.
New swimmers who want to develop really good habits. ( you must be able to swim a minimum of 50m front crawl)
Self-coached swimmers who want expert assessment and advice.
Triathletes looking to improve their stroke, reduce their swim times and save energy.
Open Water swimmers looking to make their stroke more efficient.

During ​the ​workshop, ​you’ll ​learn ​the ​three ​foundation ​skills ​of ​effortless ​distance ​swimming:


Balanced ​and ​Stable

Become ​‘weightless’ ​by ​learning ​to ​cooperate ​with—not ​fight—gravity. ​Learning ​balance ​transforms ​struggle ​into ​smoothness ​and ​calms ​churning ​legs. ​It ​also ​brings ​the ​body ​control—and ​mental ​calm—necessary ​to ​learn ​every ​skill ​that ​follows.

Sleek ​and ​Slippery

Learn ​to ​move ​through ​water, ​rather ​than ​move ​it ​around, ​by: ​(i) ​Shaping ​your ​body ​to ​be ​longer, ​better ​aligned, ​more ​hydrodynamic; ​and ​(ii) ​Stroking ​in ​ways ​that ​minimize ​waves ​and ​turbulence. ​Slippery ​swimming ​means ​you ​travel ​farther—easier—on ​each ​stroke.

Whole Body Propulsion

Replace ​arm-and-leg ​churning ​with ​surprising, ​yet ​effortless, ​power ​by ​connecting ​arm-and-leg ​actions ​to ​rhythmic, ​relaxing ​weight ​shifts. ​Instead ​of ​generating ​muscular ​force ​you’ll ​direct ​‘available’ ​forces ​of ​body ​mass ​and ​gravity.

The ​workshop ​includes ​expert ​instruction with hands on correction in the pool and a maximum teacher to swimmer ratio of 1:5 . ​The workshop consists of 4 hours in the pool and 3 hours in the classroom . You will receive Individual ​feedback ​during the day and ​video ​analysis with correction lines and coaches voice over is emailed the day after the workshop for you to keep 

WHAT TO BRING: Note pad and pen, bathing suit (two if you want a dry one for the afternoon), goggles, towels.  We strongly recommend that all male swimmers wear a Speedo-type brief or tight-fitting lycra trunks, rather than baggy-style swim trunks -wearing a baggy suit will make it difficult for you to fully master balance and flow.  Swimming pool water can get pretty chilly over time, so if you have a short sleeved surfing style rash top bring it with you. Tea and coffee will be provided.  Please bring packed lunch and soft drinks .

**This ​workshop ​is ​recommended ​for ​those ​who ​can ​swim ​50 ​meters ​or ​more ​of ​crawl ​stroke ​or ​who ​have ​studied ​TI ​skills ​previously ​via ​DVD. ​The ​workshop ​includes ​expert ​instruction, ​individualized ​feedback ​and ​video ​analysis
