Ella Is an amazing encouraging patient skilled wild swimming teacher who held my hand, and supported me to begin to master basic swimming skills , I had a block of 6 lessons with Ella and they have frankly change my life I feel much safer and more comfortable smell to join other more proficient swimmers in my daily swims.
I'm putting what Ella taught me into practice, with more confidence and enjoyment, and looking forward to having more lessons with Ella.
