About me & my work:

I teach swimming for the ocean.

In 2006 I took two kids for a swimming lesson in the Bondi Icebergs pool and then into the ocean at Bondi Beach. Since then I have had the privilege of creating, researching and developing a unique program that teaches direct, non competitive, thorough-yet-simple swimming techniques that allow students to develop a relationship with the power of the ocean. The program is accessible to all and takes a holistic approach to how one can experience the moving water. By changing their approach to the moving water rather than building strength per se, students learn to respect and stay in control of the ever changing ocean environment. Students learn from one lesson or many, and learn that you never stop learning. I also teach within a context of the living of a creative and healthy life, and our four hour sessions typically include an exploration of each of these elements.
