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.
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.
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.

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 passionate teacher with excellent communication skills to help you get the most out of your swimming journey. It is a joy to have her guidance, professionalism and sweet disposition. She is the best !
For several years Sanela thought my child to swim. Through a gentle approach, she was able to engage him through various games, while showing sensitivity to his fears, as well as his preferences. She was always positive and welcoming, and we found ourselves looking forward to her lessons each and every time. Over the whole period, my child was making a clear progress, which was methodologically noted and analysed in his special swim development book. A truly special, dedicated teacher!
Sanela was great help to me! As a competitive swimmer racing at Regional level, I was looking for help with my freestyle and backstroke turns in order to reduce my overall times. After only a few sessions with Sanela I was able to quicken my turns and improve my racing times at galas. She also provided me advice for my stroke technique and diving. Would highly recommend!
