DESCRIPTION: A great opportunity to work with Master Coach Celeste St. PierreInstruction will take place in the comfort of a Warm Teaching Pool.

Do you want to swim a mile or more and feel invigorated and not drained at the end?  

Do you want the swim to be the best leg of your triathlon?

​Do you want to swim comfortably and confidently in open water?

Our coaches are some of the most active Total Immersion Directors who have worked with athletes from complete beginner to professional triathlete.

This clinic is appropriate for any ability level with a reasonable comfort in the water.

This workshop includes expert instruction, individualized feedback and detailed video analysis. It is recommended for people who can swim at least 50 m or more of crawl stroke who have studied TI skills previously with DVDs, books or had lessons from a TI Coach.      

Who will benefit from this workshop?

   • New swimmers who want to develop great habits (but can swim 50m front crawl unaided).

         • Swimmers who have struggled to improve.

         • Self-coached swimmers who would like expert assessment and advice.

         • Long-time swimmers who find themselves stuck on a plateau or who have lost motivation.

         • Open Water swimmers looking to make their stroke more efficient.

What will you learn:

         • You will learn the principles of Total Immersion swimming including breathing, balance and streamlining.

         • When swimming the best way to increase your endurance or speed is to reduce energy waste.  

         • During the workshop you'll develop the three foundation skills of effortless swimming:

           - BALANCE AND STABILITY - Become weightless and relaxed in the water 
           - STREAMLINING - Learn to push forwards through water by streamlining your body.
           - WHOLE BODY PROPULSION - Propel yourself forwards through the water using your core and channeling energy forwards using natural weight shifts.

SCHEDULE: Our schedule will be as follows (subject to minor revision):

Note: Pool is a comfortable 82 degrees
