Individual swimming lessons

Group lessons aren't for everyone.

One-on-one time with a swim instructor might be just what you need.

You can learn to swim at any age, such as children, adults, pregnant women, seniors, the handicapped, or overweight.

Swimming does not overload the joints, ligaments or spine, strengthens and stretches all major muscle groups and strengthens the heart. When you are properly exhaling into water, it increases the vital capacity of the lungs. It is excellent in rehabilitation after injuries and operations, and has a positive effect on the psyche.

However, all this applies only if the movements in the water are carried out correctly.

In an unmanageable manner, especially if you don't sink your head and breathe into the water, your body is at a large angle to the water level, overcoming greater resistance disproportionately straining the cervical spine and neck muscles. You are overloading the lumbar spine with asymmetrical foot movements, straining your shoulders, and usually you are not breathing regularly.

SWIMMING STROKES

free style animation

The crawl is the most technically sophisticated, fastest and least energy-consuming swimming stroke without increased demands on joint mobility. The body of the swimmer has minimal resistance in almost horizontal position, after mastering the technique is effective and natural movement with good orientation.

back stroke animation

The back stroke is the second most natural swimming stroke after the crawl. The swimmer's body is in a flowing horizontal position, hips and shoulders at the surface, face parallel to the level, ears slightly below the surface, the view is up. Just because of the reduced possibility of orientation, the back stroke is rarely used in recreational swimming, although it is the healthiest swimming stroke.

breast stroke animation

The breast stroke is the most used swimming method in recreational swimming in Europe (unlike America and Australia), mainly because it is possible to swim without sinking your head and breathing into the water. The swimmer in an unnatural position with his head tilted over the surface is disproportionately straining the cervical spine and neck muscles. The swimmer is overloading the lumbar spine with asymmetrical foot movements. Breast stroke is the slowest and technically hardest way with high demands on joint mobility and the highest energy consumption. When uncontrolled technique it is the most unhealthy movement in the water.

butterfly animation

The butterfly originated as a modification of the breast stroke and in 1952 was recognized as a new swimming stroke. After the crawl it is the second fastest swimming stroke. The position of the body changes during the swimming cycle, while the swimmer waves from head to the tips of feet during swimming. The wave motion is followed by kicking and arm work.
