Default TI in The Netherlands?

Well we have a new king, which is great, but we don't have any TI coaches. Or do we? I have searched but cannot find anyone. If anyone could help me get in touch with possible coaches or TI swimming buddies in the Netherlands (Amsterdam, The Hague, that kind of area) I would be most grateful........

Cheers.

Default NL seeking TI

I have a private student from Wassenar. I may mention to him that there are a couple locals interested in TI swimming together.

We would love to establish some coaches there. NL is a prime location with a great culture of health, fitness and swimming. I came to Wassenar to work with my student and was very impressed (that is a particularly nice village to visit, I know).

I have a another good friend in Rotterdam who is eager to help us spread word at local pools about our swim camps at least. But it would be great to have a host on the ground who could arrange pool rental and help gather enough people for a full workshop. That would help plant the seeds for a coach in the area- we hope.

We do have a couple Dutch-speaking TI Coaches in Antwerp. I believe they would consider traveling your way for a workshop.

Also if you have a private student from Wassenar and they won't mind a few others joining (as well as yourself) please let me know.

Would love for it to happen in The Netherlands, I am sure, infact positive there would be a fantastic reaction to this.

I have only traveled there once, a year ago, though he travels to me. I would love to come again. I need to replenish my supply of Dutch gouda.

The momentum of interest may be growing enough in the AMS/Hague region now that Stijn and Lennart can begin to plan a workshop there if they are interested. I could also work through my connections there to promote the event.

Default TI Coach Fiona Laughlin (Terry's daughter) coming to Europe Fall 2013

Hello TI swimmers of the Netherlands!
I wanted to let you know that I will be coming to London in September and then after the end of September would like to set up some TI workshops in Europe to run. Please let me know if you would like to coordinate that. I need some help with setting up the workshops as I have never been to the Netherlands before and am not sure what the good locations are for that.
A little about me, I started coaching with my father TI founder Terry Laughlin in 1989 so I am the #1 most experienced TI coach in the world other than Terry and have trained many of the TI coaches who exist in the world today. When not teaching Total Immersion I am an artist and filmmaker and love to travel to see and engage in cultural events. I would love to meet and get to know more TI swimmers in Europe and specifically in the Netherlands. If you would like to contact me about setting something up please email me at fionalaughlin@gmail.com as I do not check the forums very often. Hope to see you soon!

Default Coming to the Netherlands

TI fans/friends in the Netherlands. I plan a brief visit to the Netherlands in October--probably Oct 21 thru 24. I'm looking for some tips on where to visit and swim. I definitely plan to spend some time in Amsterdam, and think it might be interesting to visit Eindhoven where the Dutch national swimmers train, but am not sure if there'll be anything to see at that time.
Is there a pool that allows the public to swim 50m lengths?
I'd really love to experience Dutch cycling culture while there. Is it possible to rent a bike and ride on one of the 'bike highways' I've read about?
