Here is the sixth sample from my next swim book: “Swimming with the Mind of Meditation” I will be releasing one each week for the next few weeks for a total of 8 practices. Each week the practices will get a little longer.
This practice includes the use of mini pull buoys (half the size of standard pull buoys) and mini paddles (smaller than the size of your hand), check it out and give it a go!
This set is to practice swimming with the whole body, using the core and strong legs to stay in line with the spine. Don”t struggle or force your movements, but relax and move easy.
