Take the Alexander Technique into the pool—and improve your performance! Focusing on the most popular strokes—front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly—The Art of Swimming shows swimmers how to release tension from their head, neck, and back. Steven Shaw, whose method has received international acclaim, breaks his exercises down into a series of therapeutic movements that swimmers can practice either alone or with a partner, and in water or on dry land. His unique insights will become the building blocks for a better, more healthful swimming experience.
Steven Shaw is a teacher of the Alexander Technique and a former competitive swimmer. Over the past 20 years he has developed a revolutionary approach to swimming, The Shaw Method, which has helped thousands of people to find freedom in the water. Steven offers private lessons, group workshops, and residential courses throughout the UK and abroad. Shaw’s method is rapidly spreading throughout the world and is currently taught in over 10 countries.
