  • Q: What is the Sevenus Swimming Method?

    A: In brief, the difference with our way of teaching is that we observe our students individually and then facilitate in helping them to develop their own natural swimming ability.

    By not leading or forcing the pace in any obvious way, our pupils do not feel limited or constrained and results can be achieved faster.

    They intuitively release their skills and abilities without too much interference, only with guidance.

    The confidence derived from knowing that “I did it” builds and supports the learning process. Self confidence acquired in this way is immeasurable.

  • Laura Sevenus was a South African national competitive swimmer in the 60’s. She was one of five South Africans chosen to tour with the American Water Follies as a synchronized swimmer, thus changing her amateur status.

    In 1964, her professional career began when she assisted the South African team coach training beginners, and later established her first private swim school. Her understanding of parent and children’s needs led to the creation of a purpose-designed facility for teaching swimming in Cape Town, this is where she developed what is now the Sevenus Swimming Method®.

    She has contributed her evolving insight and expertise to various working groups in South Africa, Sweden, Germany and the UK and has been instrumental in defining swim teaching standards in South Africa. She is also a certified aquarobics instructor and Watsu® practitioner.
