Distance Week Workshop
Sunday 1st July 12-3pm The Friary, Kinsale Co Cork

Distance week is the ideal opportunity to spend time building stamina, skill and performance. A Physio and Pilates mat-based swim clinic that specialises in swim related injury and prevention. Be expertly assessed on your specific problem areas and learn skills required to minimise pain and discomfort and maximise swimming enjoyment and performance. Karen Mason is a Chartered Physiotherapist with over 10 years experience, a Pilates Instructor and a local Sandycove sea swimmer. This is not a swim coaching session but rather a chance to lay down new ways of movement and learn techniques you can take to the water and harness to improve your swimming experience.

Swimming is a wonderful way to practice being in the moment, to break the cycle of worrying, pain, planning and analyzing. It is also one of the best ways to exercise and stay healthy.  

Swim Out of Pain is a mat based workshop for swimmers who recognize the need for injury prevention.  Karen will expertly facilitate you to identify weak links and overcome obstacles in your swimming style. There are three specific areas that slow you down, cause pain and encourage drag in the water. Rotator cuff issues, bilateral breathing problems and lower back pain all inhibit your flow in the water. If you suffer from any, or all, of these issues your experience in the water is less enjoyable. 

Learn to overcome these problems and become a longer, faster, pain free, happier swimmer. Check out what the head of the World Open Water Swimming Association, Steve Munatones shared.

As a qualified Physiotherapist BSc (HONS), Clinical Pilates Instructor and Mindful movement educator, Karen Mason brings a unique understanding to the plight of swimmers injuries. There is no person better placed to help you Swim out of Pain.
