DESCRIPTION: A great opportunity to work with Terry Laughlin's sister Master Coach Peg LaughlinInstruction will take place in the comfort of a Warm Indoor Teaching Pool. A note from Peg:  "I swam regularly throughout my adult years, receiving periodic instruction from Terry. In 2002, at age 45, I took the Total Immersion 1.0 Coach Certification Course to improve my stroke and relationship with the water. I've had regular private training by TI founder Terry Laughlin since then. For the past 14 years I’ve improved my form—and my enjoyment of swimming—continuously. I have taught children and adults in private lessons and group settings. My primary interest is to share my love of swimming and help struggling swimmers experience the pleasure of being in harmony with the water. I teach: * Phobic adults * Improvement-minded swimmers * Fitness and recreational swimmers."

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

For the pool: An extra suit & towel if you want dry ones for the afternoon swim, a swim cap, an extra pair of goggles – mirrored goggles are best, but tinted would be good, too. Flip flops or waterproof shoes. We recommend that male students wear a Speedo-type brief or close-fitting triathlon swim shorts, rather than loose-fitting swim trunks, which can make balance even more of a challenge. Something warm to wear after the swim. A water bottle and light lunch.
