The Shaw Method has taken the life changing qualities of the Alexander Technique into the pool, creating a unique approach to swimming that improves poise, enhances inner calmness and promotes good body alignment while
minimizing the risk of strain.

Steven Shaw founded the method in 1987, and he has redesigned the approach to learning
each stroke making them accessible to all, whatever your age or starting point. All teachers work with you in the water. This means they can give clear demonstrations, communicate easily and offer guidance and direction. For more information visit


“Before taking this course all I was able to do was tread water and
paddle around a bit and now I am regularly swimming full laps, which
to me, seems nothing short of miraculous. Right from the start, this
non-resistant technique changed the way I viewed swimming entirely.
Jo is an expert teacher and very patient with beginners. I would
enthusiastically recommend her for all levels of swim instruction.”
