With one of his greatest achievements competing and receiveing a medal in the Youth Modern Pentathlon European Championships. Deniss continues to demonstrate his passion for a wide range of sport regularly playing tennis, football, volleyball and fencing. For Deniss the personal aspect of each swimming lesson is one of the most essential features and he believes that getting to know the unique personality of each child allows for greater understanding, progression and closely tailored lessons. Deniss draws his years of enjoyment and experience of sport to fuel his continued energy and passion for swimming; a passion he clearly wants to inspire in the students he teaches!
Elena Escobar
Elena Escobar Photo Drawing on an early and committed love for sport, Elena obtained not one but two degrees! One in Physical Education and Sports Sciences and the other in Physical Education Teaching, before moving onto achieving her ASA qualification! It is no surprise then that her love for teaching and enthusiasm for sport shines through in her lessons, wanting to see her own interest and passion for swimming reflected in her students’ enjoyment in the water.  Similarly it is the personal aspect of each swimming lesson that Elena considers to be one of the most valuable elements and believes having a close relationship with the student and parents encourages greater progression, understanding and a lifelong love of swimming for the whole family! Playing basketball, tennis and in a football team herself, Elena continues to enjoy a very active lifestyle and this enthusiasm carries through into her lessons where she uses her energy to encourage each swimmer to have an exciting swimming experience.
Kate
Kate Photo Listing her greatest personal swimming achievements as competing in the National Championships and in the Queensland State Championships, Kate brings a wealth of fantastic experience to her teaching role as an accredited ASCTA swimming teacher. Also enjoying competing in local open water events, Kate is clearly happier in the water than out of it! Having small class sizes and the support and encouragement of a teacher within the water alongside each student is one of the most valuable aspects of each lesson for Kate. She is able to establish a safe and welcoming environment that allows her to closely assist each student as they develop new skills and correct their technique as quickly and as often as is needed as they progress with each stroke. Likewise this enables Kate to deliver tailored lessons that focus on each student’s individual requirements, allowing their skills to be continually and confidently developed. Having the opportunity in each lesson to pass on her expertise and encourage the same confident and enthusiastic relationship with swimming is what makes every day exciting!
Lamprini
Lamprini Photo One our talented bilingual teachers – she speaks both English and Greek – Lamprini not only competed as a national level swimmer, but also competed for national teams in shooting, the pentathlon and the modern pentathlon, obtaining a vast array of awards in all four disciplines! With such a wealth of experience behind her Lamprini went on to coach several swimming clubs and gain valuable teaching experience as a P.E teacher in a private school and as a personal trainer. Still leading a healthy and active lifestyle, Lamprini also finds the time to volunteer with her Church to feed the homeless and volunteers with Helping Hands providing support in the community. Lamprini brings this caring and welcoming manner to every lesson and delivers activities that are engaging and encouraging for every student, whether it is their first lesson or their hundredth. She loves teaching in the water to small classes and finds the ability to change a student’s technique as soon as is needed ensures they swim with the correct technique first time, every time!
Lina
Lina Photo One of our talented trilingual teachers – she speaks English, Norwegian and Swedish – Lina has been an enthusiastic and committed swimmer as far back as she can remember! As a former international swimmer who qualified for two Olympic Games, we are thrilled that she chose to build on her invaluable experiences and become a Swimming Nature teacher. For Lina it is the use of hands-on teaching techniques employed by a teacher from within the pool that provides the continued development of skills and techniques in the correct way and ensures a positive response from each and every swimmer. Using her specialilty in the 50m and 100m freestyle and the Individual Medley events to build stamina and shape the techniques of the higher levels, Lina also believes everyone should have the opportunity to learn to swim and as such enjoys teaching all levels and age groups. She considers her teaching role to be a very rewarding one and enjoys passing on her knowledge and experience to each swimmer, encouraging them to enjoy the exciting pool environment, from the hopping Frogs to the speedy Swordfish!

Richardson
Richardson Photo Richardson has been in the water almost all of his life and he is a passionate teacher and mentor for learning to swim. Having spent a lot of his life in Brazil - he literally grew up on the beach! He enjoys teaching the Swimming Nature method and has tried many others but found this to be the best way of training children to swim from a young age with the correct strokes. He thinks it’s marvellous to have children as young as 4 years old swimming proper from crawl – and he’s right about that! Richardson is full of smiles and positive energy and gets immense satisfaction from teaching children this important life skill. Lessons are fun and interactive with lots of games and splashing!

She shows this by being passionate and caring and making sure pupils are comfortable and focussed when in class. For some years Vera had been a lifeguard and watched the Swimming Nature teachers taking the classes so it’s no surprise that she took to the teaching like a duck to water! Vera is an excellent swimmer and loves demonstrating the techniques to pupils. Ever ready to help them out if they need it but equally happy to let them go and experience the weightless feeling and joy that being buoyant in the water provides. A keen cyclist and runner she enjoys being part of a team of teachers committed to health and fitness.
