Manoela is a Level 2 Swim Ireland qualified swimming instructor and former international triathlete who competed in both Pan-American races and the Word Cup qualifiers.
Having graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Science, where her specialism was in swimming, Manoela then spent 4 months triathlon training with the top 5 triathletes in the world. Her invitation was to join a training camp in Switzerland with one of the world’s leading triathlon coaches, Brett Sutton. To be training with the best triathletes in the world was an unbelievable success!
Manoela finds it It’s realy exciting and rewarding teaching and coaching swimming because it’s not just another sport that adults are learning, swimming can and does save lives. Manoela thrives on helping adults of all levels to reach their swimming goals, as being such a key part of this makes her feel really grateful and proud. Whilst Manoela really enjoys working with triathletes and stroke improvers, she also finds it’s really rewarding to see a client that has water phobia caused by some acident or fear, being able to do things in water that they didn’t ever feel was possible before. It is the ”I can swim smile” that Manoela enjoys seeing on client’s faces.
Manoela is available for lessons Tuesday and Thursday evenings, as well as Wednesday and Friday mornings
