I don't have the benefit of having watched your stroke but head movement is something I've striven quite specifically to minimize or eliminate. I've just finished shooting video for an all new series we will release as (1) ibooks or vooks and (2) DVDs.
These will be
Butterfly for Boomers
Backstroke for Boomers
Breaststroke for Boomers.
All will feature exclusively 60+ swimmers and a relatively simple, and quite gentle, series of 4 primary stroke improvement exercises for each stroke.

May your laps be as happy as mine.
