Itinerary

* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect


There'll be a mix of practical sessions, physical and mental preparation

You'll start each session with a series of exercises to increase your flexibility and warm you up before starting work in our heated pool. You'll progress outdoors as and when we decide that this progression will be of benefit to you. We'll assess your needs and coach you individually, and there'll be plenty of opportunity to review video footage of your progress.

Experience Required

You need to be comfortable upside down. Strong low brace support strokes are also key, but we can help you with these.

We may also be able to arrange a transfer from Llandudno Junction train station, subject to availability. We would need a minimum of one week’s notice prior to your course start date – please contact reception to learn more.

When it comes to equipment, at Plas y Brenin we have a wide range of top-quality kit for you to use, all included in your course fee. This means if you’re just starting out, there’s no need to rush out and buy a load of expensive gear, and if you’re already pretty well kitted-out, it’s a great chance to try something new.
