More About Us...
Aquanat is a family owned boutique swim school based in Alfred Cove and Mosman Park, Perth, Western Australia.
We are passionate about what we do. We believe teaching is more than just giving instruction, it is about tuning in to the needs of each individual, and creating meaningful relationships and connection with our clients, in and out of the pool.
Consistency matters to us, and unless unavoidable, you will see the same teacher and the same faces each week throughout your enrolment with us.
We offer small, intimate group classes as well as one on one swimming, held in dedicated private indoor teaching pools - not general public swimming facilities.
Our pools are indoors and are heated to 34-35°C all year round at private by-appointment-only centres, creating a warm, relaxing learning environment, with water quality carefully cared for to maintain high levels of health and sanitation.
Our Alfred Cove centre was designed and created
with focus on utilising passive energy for airflow, soft natural lighting, and spa-like fixtures to foster a calming and welcoming environment that's unique in Perth.
Our teaching is inspired by different techniques and philosophies, among which are the Halliwick method, Alexander technique, Tai chi, Feldenkrais, Montessori method, and Aquatic Bodywork & Therapies.
These methods help us tailor swimming lessons and therapy sessions to the needs of each of our students and clients. We consider each individual’s unique learning style, strengths and state of being on every given day, in helping every client find their own easy and enjoyable swimming approach.
From the minute you contact us and throughout your lessons or sessions with us you can expect personal and warm attention.
Lessons are tailored to all ages and any level of experience. Whether you’re a beginner, a confident swimmer or someone who feels anxious about swimming, we can help you feel safe and joy in the water, and excited about your next swimming lesson!
Start from as young as 10 weeks old! Our Baby and Parents Swimming Lessons are designed to foster joyful experiences in the water, with only one class in the pool at a time, your little one will develop aquatic competency!
