Learn to swim
What makes Aquanat different?
Our teaching style is based on the belief that swimming should be a natural and joyful experience!
We aim to make learning accessible, easy and enjoyable for all. No matter your swimming background or physical or mental ability.
Our teaching is inspired by different techniques and philosophies, among which are the international Halliwick method, Alexander technique, Tai chi, Feldenkrais, Montessori, Aquatic Bodywork, and others.
These methods help us tailor sessions to achieve the desired outcome for every individual. We consider each person’s unique learning style and strengths, and help every client find their own easy and enjoyable swimming approach.
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.
Being a family owned swim school, 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, it's about creating meaningful relationships and bonds with our clients, and providing consistency. This means that our teachers are highly trained as well as posses backgrounds in therapy. Unless absolutely unavoidable, you will see the same teacher each week.
Offering small and intimate group classes and one on one swimming lessons, we conduct all instruction in dedicated indoors training and teaching pools, heated to 35°C - not general public swimming facilities. This means that you'll be able to focus on your lessons in a relaxing environment without distraction.
Aquanat offers swimming classes for babies from just 10weeks old onwards. Using fun games and joyful experiences in the pool your little one will develop competency in the water!

Keeping water temperature at 34-35 ℃.

Ensuring access to comfortable changing rooms.
Aesthetically pleasant surroundings.

What is Aquatic Therapy?
During the first nine months of our life in our mother’s womb we are suspended in warm liquid. Indeed many of us describe the feeling of a dip in hot springs as returning to the womb.
Being in warm water is a pleasant feeling for most people - a sense of relaxation and weightlessness that spreads over the body and soul.
Immersion in water has many healing properties that positively impact our mood and help promote wellbeing, which in turn can improve our quality of life.
and Waterdance®, have been developed.
Many of these are offered in warm water and are designed to treat various health conditions. Recognition of the effectiveness of such treatments has been increasing among both the general public and the medical professions.
Aquanat's skilled aquatic therapists can help relieve pain, promote relaxation, improve flexibility, mobilise joints, strengthen muscles, rehabilitate injuries, all of which can improve general wellbeing. The weightlessness afforded by aquatic therapy makes it suitable for people of most levels of ability.
