Your teacher, Trisha Harbord
I’ve been teaching the Alexander Technique since 1991 and the Shaw Method since 2001. I’ve always loved moving through water, and find it a great privilege to be able to share my passion for it with others. I really enjoy helping people to discover their potential, and to get greater fulfilment out of being in the water. View the what people say page for more on my teaching.
My swimming teaching qualifications:
I trained to teach the Shaw Method by gaining a Diploma in Aqua Development and Health, accredited by the University of Greenwich. Tuition in swimming teaching on the course was given by Steven Shaw, originator of the Shaw Method of Swimming. I’m a member of the Swimming Teachers’ Association (STA). I’ve passed the Amateur Swimming Association’s Teachers’ Certificate, and the current Royal Life Saving Society Rescue Test.
My swimming teaching:
I teach the Shaw Method to adults in Bath, working largely on a one-to-one basis, but I’ve also taught groups in the UK, Argentina and Estonia. I’ve often worked with Steven Shaw as a teaching assistant.
My Alexander teaching:
I qualified as a teacher of the Alexander Technique in 1990, and since then have worked with individuals as well as giving introductory sessions to groups. I’m a member of the profession’s main body in the UK, the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT).
