Mandian Swim Schools Adult Swimming Lessons are aimed at anyone over the age of 16 with a desire to either improve existing strokes or to learn to swim.
The reasons for wanting to learn are vast, from overcoming a fear of water, wanting to teach your own children, therapy (e.g. Injury and illness), starting a new sport (e.g. Sailing and Surfing), career change (e.g. Oil Rigs and Leisure Industry), going on holiday and don't want to watch from the side of the pool while the rest of the family are having fun, or for weight loss and fitness. The reason's are endless and the possibilities immense!
Mandian Swim School help you eleviate any fears and build an excellent foundation for the enjoyment of water based activities for the rest of your life!
In the summer of 2006 Ian noticed through talking to Moray residents in general there was a vast amount of adults within the Moray area who were either poor swimmers or non swimmers and the contributory factor for this appeared to either be due to lack of facilities during the past in Moray or the teaching methods (or lack of them) already in place to teach adult non swimmers to overcome their fear of the water. Therefore Mandian Swim School was formed!
