Breaststroke Workshop

with Art of Swimming

This day is for anyone who can swim or glide with their face in the water and wishes to develop a graceful and flowing style of breaststroke. NB. Anyone suffering from serious knee problems should seek professional advice before considering choosing the breaststroke course. Our aim is to show you how to perfect this elegant stroke and, enable you to take full advantage of its health benefits.
By the end of the day you will be efficient in:
•    Maintaining a healthy head/neck/back alignment during all phases of the stroke,
•    Establishing proper timing and co-ordination leading to easy breathing and a relaxed glide,
•    Developing a symmetrical leg action thereby preventing a twist of the spine,
•    Gaining maximum propulsion from the arm and leg action, and
•    Discovering how a long glide is at the heart of the stroke, allowing time to release the breath and lengthen and widen the back.

Breaststroke is easy to swim but hard to swim well. When swum well it improves the mobility of the neck, shoulders, wrists, spine, hips, knees and ankles; strengthens and tones the quadriceps at the front of the legs and the hamstrings at the back. Despite being the slowest stroke, it burns the most calories.
