The Art of Swimming

  • image
Steven Shaw and Armand D’Angour

This book shows how the Alexander Technique can be applied to swimming. This is an introductory book that never loses sight of the psycho-physical nature of the Technique. The benefits of swimming are discussed in relation to fitness (current conceptions of which are questioned). The principles of orientation, balance, buoyancy, and breathing in swimming are explained and illustrated. Much advice, including some practical exercises, is given on how to deal with fears and other restricting attitudes towards swimming. Breast stroke, front and back crawl are discussed and stroke guides are given. [165 pages, b/w photos & drawings, index, 234 x 153mm, 1996, Shaw Method Ltd., imported]
