Angela is a a very caring and patient instructor. She is teaching my wife and I as beginning adult swimmers. She takes small steps with you to get you comfortable in the water (especially if you are nervous about swimming). We highly recommend her.

I really enjoy my beginner adult swim lessons with Angela. She makes me feel very comfortable in the water and breaks everything down into manageable steps. I've tried to swim many times before. I think Angela has approach I need.

Luciana is deeply knowledgable and clear and concise in conveying knowledge to her students. She emphasizes proper alignment so as a student, I don't have to worry about hurting myself in poses, or even worse, developing a pose with poor alignment. I feel that Luciana teaches the whole practice to the whole person. She has a deep understanding of all aspects of yoga and teaches it all, not just the popular poses or practices. She is adept at working with limitations and helping students find a place that is accessible for them, as well as helping them move beyond their limitations to deepen their practice. I feel that she pays very close attention to each student's body and mind in the practice and adapts lessons to address each student's individual needs.

I was Luciana's yoga student for several years. She is treasure as a teacher. It is obvious that she has a very deep knowledge of yoga and the body after many years as a serious practitioner/teacher. She has great attention for individual students in a class. Luciana is a true artist in her approach. Thank you!

My daughter has had private lessons with Angela since September 2014. When my daughter was 2 she was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, an umbrella disorder of Autism, making activities like swimming extremely difficult because my daughter would get overwhelmed and overstimulated. Angela has been nothing short of a miracle worker in teaching my daughter not only to swim and the importance of water safety but to LOVE swimming. I have watched my daughter go from not wanting to get in the pool to swimming by herself, treading water for 2 minutes and more, floating solo and much more. My daughters confidence has sky rocketed and that is in part to Angela's patience, perseverance,commitment and expertise.

We have had a fantastic experience with Angela. Angela has deep experience and a warm mannered approach to make you feel comfortable. I communicated with her mostly via text and booked my sessions easily.She explains the reasoning behind each gesture and positioning, and then breaks down the movements into isolated exercises so that you can really get the feel and gain muscle memory before putting it all together. My wife had no experience with swimming and I knew a little bit. Angela managed it exceptionally well to train both of us. In few sessions we were able to do freestyle and other strokes. I would highly recommend Angela for swimming lessons.

About

I teach all levels of American Red Cross Lifeguarding and CPR for the Professional Rescuer. I have managed Aquatic facilities in Central texas for 10 years and am extremely experienced in aquatic environments. I have worked professionally as an American Red Cross (ARC) Water Safety Instructor and Special Olympics of Texas Aquatics Coach for over 8 years. I teach all aspects of swimming including diving, fitness training, and competitive coaching. I have worked with all ages but prefer adults and seniors. I have 4 years of experience coaching Special Olympics of Texas Aquatics and am apt to modify strokes to the individual I am working with. Like learning all new skills, consistent practice will be the key to your success. It will be important that we collaborate on a training schedule that helps you achieve your goals. Individuals MUST be prepared to practice independently if they desire rapid progress and comfort in aquatic environments. It is always a good practice to swim either with a friend or at a guarded facility. Cross training and learning all of the competitive strokes isn't always necessary. Don't waste your own time if that is not the kind of swimming that you want to learn. Even a few, short lessons can help lifetime swimmers refine their style to be more efficient and boost endurance.
