Improve your relationship with water - Motivational ASA qualified Swimming & Synchro Swimming Coach with over 30 years of experience and well over 7,000 students World wide

Methodology

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. Have a chance to become a swimmer who is powerful, graceful and effortless with any of the four strokes.


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 principles of the Alexander Technique together with the focus on body awareness and its alignment and how to use body more effectively. 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.

Ambassador

One of our best! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and responds during the day. Sanela will plan your first class with care.

Background

Experienced in teaching professional athletes, people with special needs, adults, children and babies. I have also had a chance to work with one of our county's swimming Olympians Mr. David Wilkie - MBE during the 1990s and was part of the team campaign before London 2012 to narrow the gap in gender inequality in sport between men and women in synchronised swimming. Now men are able to swim in mix duets and teams at National and International competitions. With that came the achievement of our first mixed duet winning a gold medal for Great Britain at FINA World Masters Championships in South Korea in 2019.


I was nominated for the London Award 2013 in the category Coach of the Year 2013 across the UK and have been recognised as an ambassador for quality of teaching.

I am very proud of what I have achieved with clients who have put an awful lot of commitment and dedication into reaching their goals.

Head Coach in West London Club for the past 11 years.

My coached clients have received recent media interest including coverage on the Andrew Marr Show (BBC), The Independent on Sunday, The Guardian, ABC News, Jo Brand’s Big Splash on Dave, Radio 4, Reuters and Eurosport. I have also been featured in Health and Fitness, ID and Vogue Magazines.

Thank you Sanela!

Sanela 's response

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 amazing with children. Not only is she an extremely competent swimming instructor but she has a great understanding of pedagogy and it becomes evident she loves teaching children. Watching our son's progress with Sanela after trying so many different swimming schools and incompetent instructors has been incredibly rewarding. He accomplished with Sanela in months, what he didn't accomplish in years. We couldn't recommend Sanela more.

In January 2020 I took the decision to learn how to properly swim. I was looking for 1:1 class near work (before the pandemic), with somebody who could gradually work on the basics and then improve my confidence and my technique. Sanela has been absolutely amazing. She is true professional, both in terms of technique and in terms of coaching. She listen, observes and explain very clearly and thoughtfully. My technique and confidence made huge leaps at each session - Sanela very quickly identifies what needs to be worked on, helps you overcome fear of water, works on every aspect of the technique, and gently pushes you to reach the goals. Having a swimming coach like Sanela makes a huge difference, and I warmly recommend her to anyone interested in learning how to swim or improve swimming skills.

I did a crash course on synchronized swimming with my beautiful teacher Sanela. (Five 30-minute sessions) She’s really helped build up my confidence in the sport and made sure that the sessions are always fun! In my few sessions, I manged to do the basic sculling with ease. I’m so pleased with my progress and renewed enthusiasm for the water! Thank you for coming into my life and making it a bit more interesting than before.

I have been taking individual swimming lessons with Sanela for several months and I really enjoy learning with her. She is knowledgable, patient and explains and demonstrates things clearly. She obviously loves to teach, and takes real pleasure in her students' progress. She is also very professional and reliable. I am happy to recommend her.

H

With her vast experience Sanela is able to 'diagnose' and recommend changes. She is empathetic which makes it much easier to discuss concerns. And she's a lovely person too.

S
Shona

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.

U
Uchechi

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!

G
Grace-Ann

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.

L
Lulu

Sanela is an amazing instructor that has a wealth of experience. I have quickly learnt and improved in my swimming techniques in a few hours of lessons with her. Would not recommend her enough !

Review from Sanela

QUESTION 01 | 08
What age did you start playing sport? Tell us about this time or moment in your life.
Sanela — I have always been a bit of a water baby. I developed a passion for water sports from a young age and have a very wide background and knowledge of aquatic sports including swimming, synchronised swimming and waterpolo.



I was a competitive swimmer and subsequently a gold medalist and record breaker in 100m and 200m backstroke between 1986 - 1991 in Former Yugoslavia.



At later years as a master swimmer I practiced waterpolo and predominantly synchronised swimming. My swimming background helped but I had a lot to learn; control and poise became vitally important.



As part of a synchronised swimming team I competed in the European and World Championships and have been a gold medalist in the solo event at National Masters Level Competition in the UK. I enjoyed camaraderie of the sport.
QUESTION 02 | 08
What are your favourite sports; those that you practise at a high level, a simple hobby, and a sport that you'd still like to discover?
Sanela — My other hobbies include love for cars, reading, cooking and yoga. I would like to learn to ski.
QUESTION 03 | 08
What gives you the motivation and passion to pursue your sport?
Sanela — For me swimming has timeless allure. I feel free and at ease. It is one of the sports I will be able to enjoy until later years.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Do you have a sporting achievement that you're particularly proud of?
Sanela — In 1991, I moved to the UK. I then had the opportunity to swim with David Wilkie to raise money for The Leukaemia Trust and won best collection for the STORT Enterprise Trust.
QUESTION 05 | 08
How have your achievements and challenges made you a better sportsperson?
Sanela — A great component in doing any sport is the element of fun and enjoyment while practicing a new set of skills.



I was fortunate enough to have supportive parents and coaches to provide me with the right guidance to start this journey. The rest of it was down to my own personal ambition.



Being involved in sport has thought me how to deal with time management, follow the rules, be part of a team, accept a loss without making excuses, learn to respect others and deal with self - control.
QUESTION 06 | 08
If you had to go for a jog with a famous athlete, who would you choose? And what questions would you ask them?
Sanela — As a kid I remember watching brilliant Franz Klammer dominating ski slops during his time with a win after win in downhill cup titles.



I would ask him how did he develop his ski style without being too aggressive and how did he manage to ski on the absolute edge yet stay in complete control at 80 mph?!
QUESTION 07 | 08
How do you help people stay motivated?
Sanela — I think it is important to create a good and positive environment that is fun. Like that students will value the enjoyment of sport above winning. Winning comes later once they feel entrench in sport they are practicing.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in sports?
Sanela — Define your goal - stay focused - avoid the reasons not to do it - take small steps towards it - enjoy the journey in getting to your goal.
