My greatest satisfaction always comes from seeing my clients enjoy their progress. Experience the difference between learning to swim and learning to swim the right way.
Whether working with nervous beginners who need to conquer their fear of water or with more advanced swimmers who want to reach triathlon or other swimming goals, I am certain that I can help you improve your results through supportive and experienced instruction.
I will help you develop body awareness with breathing techniques and swimming confidence in the water and we will go through nitty-gritty details of of any four swimming strokes or synchronised swimming figures and sculling positions that you wish to achieve.
I also teach swimming based on the principles of the Alexander Technique together with the focus on body awareness and its alignment. This technique of swimming focuses to generate Alexander Popov’s 3 R’s : Rhythm, Relaxation and Range of movement and is good for clients who are recovering after an operation of the knee, hip or any other injury. The emphasis of this type of swimming is focus on a quality of experience rather than distance or speed and building better body awareness by transforming swimmers’ relationship with the water.

Perfect! Sanela was absolutely amazing ! My 2 year old felt very comfortable being in the water with her from the start . I am so glad we found her !
Have thoroughly enjoy the interaction with lively and delightful little boy Badr who has embraced his new experience with water.
Perfect! Sanela has achieved a small miracle with my daughter who has learnt to swim with Sanela in just 2 hours!
Sanela is calm, patient and has the ability to instill confidence in children which is so important for learning.
Thank you Sanela!
Amelie responded well in her first lesson. She managed to learn to float on her front within the first 20 minutes of the lesson. I was very delighted for this little girl. An amazing result!
Sanela is a fantastic swimming teacher. She is patient, and has excellent teaching skills, giving clear instructions that everyone can understand. She is very warm, and knows very well how to make people feel competent and confident.
She worked with a group of 12 women and gave them their first synchronized swimming lesson, and the group felt they achieved a great deal in a short space of time. I cannot recommend her more highly.
Sanela is a really amazing tutor! We have had just about 5 lessons so far and I have transformed from being totally scared of dipping my head into the water to being confident to swim to the deep end of the pool! She even worked with my little daughter for only an hour and guided her carefully with a few pointers & that has made her more confident to swim the length of our pool on her own! I would recommend Sanela any day...She is simply the best!
Sanela has been such an amazing teacher.
I’ve always been scared to go in the deep end and I’m amazed at what I’ve learned from Sanela in just a couple of lessons.
I was nervous about swimming but she has helped me overcome that fear and love the water.
I would definitely recommend her without a doubt.
