Join us for an exhilarating open-water swimming workshop with Coach Sharath, designed to help you translate your swimming skills from the pool to open water bodies.
What will you LEARN?
Breathing techniques: In open-water swimming, you need to learn how to breathe effectively while facing waves, choppy water, and other natural elements.
Navigation skills: Unlike a swimming pool, open water doesn't have lane lines to guide you. You'll need to develop navigation skills to stay on course during a swim.
Safety measures: Safety should always be a top priority when swimming in open water. You should learn how to recognize the signs of dehydration or exhaustion, and know how to call for help or use safety gear, such as a swim buoy.
Adapting to different water conditions: Open water conditions can vary greatly, from calm and still to rough and choppy. You need to learn how to adapt to different water conditions and adjust your strokes and breathing techniques accordingly.
Mental strength: Open water swimming can be challenging both physically and mentally. You'll need to build mental strength to stay calm and focused, and push through difficult conditions or moments of doubt.
