Front Crawl Workshop

with Art of Swimming

This retreat is suitable for anyone who can swim or glide with their face in the water, and wishes to learn a unique, efficient, and inspiring approach to front crawl. Our aim is to introduce a fluid and powerful full-body movement combined with smooth, integrated breathing to this most commonly swum stroke.
By the end of the retreat you will be more efficient in:
-    Significantly reducing the amount of effort required to swim the stroke;
-    Establishing a strong sense of rhythm, balance and propulsion;
-    Using optimum rotation of the body to increase streamlining;
-    Recognising the appropriate amount of exertion for the leg action;
-    Achieving the proper timing for the arms; and
-    Smoothly integrating front crawl breathing into the stroke by use of ‘passive breathing’
