Breathing is an essential component in swimming
Breathing is not only the single most important aspect of swimming, but equally in everyday life. Whilst Mahatma Ghandi survived for 21 days in the 1940s with no food and only sips of water during a display of civil disobedience, he certainly couldn’t have survived that long without breathing!
Most clients who come for our adult swimming lessons tell us that they struggle with their breathing, or at the very least they have identified that this is an area in which they could improve.
You should never feel breathless or panicked at any point while you are swimming, it doesn’t mean that you are swimming hard or taking good exercise, it means that you are breathing wrong! It’s easy to correct, and once you have confidence in your breathing, then your swimming will vastly improve in both endurance and enjoyment.
