Front Crawl

Off course I can swim, I do the breaststroke already for as long as I remember! I love it and I can say I am pretty good at it, but as soon as I start the front crawl I look like a drowning dog. I never learned the technique so I thought it was about time to take some private lessons. Today you could find me in the children’s area of the Olympic swimming pool, exercising to learn the perfect style.

The front crawl of forwarded crawl is a swimming style usually regarded as the fastest of all styles developed. Unlike the backstroke, the butterfly stroke and the breaststroke, the front crawl is not regulated by the FINA, but it is nearly universally swum in freestyle competitions.


Water Yoga

I recently started with yoga and on the internet I found a new type of it related to water. “Woga” is the union of two words: water and yoga. It can be translate like “yoga in water”. Because of gravity absence, water represents the ideal atmosphere: it sweetens movements, unblocks articulations, lengthens and melts muscles and gives the right psycho and physical balance.

Woga is mostly performed in a pool and the exercises are standing or seated on the bottom. It uses special supports and the water temperature should be around 30°C. I didn’t check this Water Yoga out but it could be interesting, although I have the feeling it would be nicer to do some exercises in the shallow part of a warm sea. But before I start to dream of a blue warm sea, back to Ashtanga & Vinyasa lessons in yoga school!
