The Shaw Method enables swimmers of all abilities to swim efficiently with power, grace and ease and to achieve optimal body alignment in the water.
Above all it is about enjoying being in the water.
The Shaw Method, alternatively known as The Art of Swimming, is an approach to swimming founded in 1987 by Steven Shaw, which applies the principles of the Alexander technique to the water. The application of this to swimming results in a technique that creates a sense of oneness in the water, the body working efficiently, in alignment and as a whole in each stroke.
The Shaw Method is all about swimming with ease and without strain, a mindful approach to swimming that takes care and pays attention to the relationship of the head, neck and back throughout the stroke cycle.
As well as gaining the many benefits of swimming, The Shaw method fundamentally teaches people to use their body and mind without strain, both in and out of the water, improving flexibility and balance and promoting good body alignment.
During the last 20 years, Steven Shaw has been developing and refining the technique. Since then, thousands of people all over the world have learned to swim The Shaw Method, transforming their swimming and their experience of swimming to one of greater ease and enjoyment.
