54 - Breaststroke Workshop with Steven Shaw - Sat 29th of November 2014 - 12.30pm to 4.30pm
This workshop is for you if you can glide and/or swim with your face in the water and would like to develop a graceful and flowing breaststroke that doesn't put a strain on the spine or joints.
The aim of the workshop is to show you how to craft this extremely elegant stroke, enabling you to take full advantage of its major health benefits.
Breaststroke is easy to swim, but harder to swim well. Shaw Method breaststroke improves the mobility of the neck, shoulders, wrists, spine, hips, knees and ankles. It strengthens and tones the quadricep muscles at the front of the thighs and the hamstrings at the back. Despite being the slowest stroke it actually burns the most calories.
By the end of the workshop you will have worked on:
Maintaining a healthy head/neck/back alignment during all phases of the stroke
Perfecting a symmetrical leg action which prevents a twist of the spine
Discovering how a long glide is at the heart of the stroke: it allows time to release breath and lengthen and widen the back
Maintaining good timing for the arm and leg phases
Coordinating a good breathing pattern
Gaining maximum propulsion from the arm and leg action
