Efficient swimming is the key to having an enjoyable time in the water, the Ocean Walker Technique builds this efficiency and also teaches you to swim front crawl and prevent injury in the complex shoulder joints by taking advantage of the muscle groups.

Here at Gites at Civray, coach Steve has been through a year long rigorous process.  Led by Adam Walker, the creator of the Ocean Walker stroke, Steve has the skills to take your stroke from an exhausting start to a triathlon or an open water slog and help you develop it into a smooth, fast and efficient technique that will allow you to either exit the water in great shape ready for the next discipline or if you are swimming distance you can use the free speed to go further, faster

On the premises we have our very own 25m outdoor heated pool allowing coached sessions when it fits you, so if you come on holiday with the family why not take a lesson in the morning while the others are slowly preparing for the day?  We normally suggest 5 hours to take you through the structured stages that take you from traditional swimming though to an efficient hip driven Ocean Walker swimmer, we film before, after and during then supply the video with commentary.  Depending on the duration of your stay we can split the sessions into manageable sizes to allow plenty of practice.

Keep an eye out for Ocean Walker Technique swim camps, Adam Walker aims to spend a week with us once a year usually around June, during the camp we take you through the 5 stages, talk through how to stay motivated leading up to and during an event and we also take various excursions to swim in some of the beautiful and scenic lakes and rivers nearby.
