Each session will take about 1 hour with between 10-30 minutes in the water
There will be 5 minutes of gentle exercise and stretching (with changing robes/warm gear on), before entering the water (swimsuit only).
While in the water, depending on the ability of the participants we may do the following
- Running / walking into the water, around a lifeguard and back (waist only)
- Breathing exercises
- Learning the technique of body surfing
- Swimming (distance dependent on conditions + ability)
- Instruction in open water swimming techniques
You will be with a lifeguard for the duration of the session
We may monitor changes in mental health by asking you to fill in questionnaires at the beginning and the end of the course.
