I am an older, experienced instructor. who's taught people of all ages in various subjects in over 20 countries during the past 30 years.

I have 23 years of experience teaching yoga (learning from significant practitioners around the world) and have taught swimming lessons on and off my whole life.

In my 20s, I coached a championship swim team, and am a decorated competitor in both swimming and triathlon.

I've continued to explore swimming, yoga, and other somatic skills near-daily since I was a teenager. A lifelong teacher. I enjoy communication challenges. With every new student, I am, in effect, learning a new language. I particularly enjoy helping others advance in the physical arts.

I would be honored to teach you or your older children. Please reach out for a conversation: +1 214/641.9077.

    I didn’t think I’d learn so much in such in a short period of time. Eric is very professional, an excellent teacher and easy to get along with. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve and learn. He knows his craft very well. His wealth of knowledge is astounding! I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my swimming skill with each class, and even other people notice my posture and movement is better.

    I hired Eric as a swim coach for an adult novice with a mild fear of swimming pools of any kind. Eric was easy to communicate with, flexible with scheduling, and transparent on pricing. He suggested a great venue for the lessons, which turned out to be conducive for a learner, but he also offered to travel to a different place, if required. It took us exactly one lesson to determine that he was a great fit. Eric is an exceptional teacher. Hes not your garden variety swim coach whos out to make a buck. Erics background contributes greatly to his approach towards teaching. He is smart, calm, and his knowledge and experience shine through in every little instruction he provides during his lessons. Theres an artistry and depth in his teaching which is rare, and a pleasure to witness. I was shocked at the remarkable amount of progress we made in a matter of 4 lessons. He was able to fundamentally change the learners perception of water and swimming. We intend to continue hiring Eric for more lessons, as well as taking some Yoga classes with him later. Small things like the stretch routine before a lesson, the scientific cues, the reinforcement and encouragement during the lesson, and the progression of things being taught all made a big difference to both the learner, as well as me - the silent observer. I could also tell that hed be a great hit with young learners, because hes able to build trust and rapport swiftly - vital when youre in a pool for the first time. Overall, were very pleased that we discovered Eric on this platform, and can wholeheartedly recommend him.
