Covid Precautions Used:

It is our intention and goal that all of you arrive without Covid19 and leave without it (students and instructor)!
 
In order for us to take control of the parts of prevention that we can control, we’d like to bring to our course conversation
the consistent wearing of masks and staying at least 6 feet apart. We have all most likely been practicing these, and that’s why we’re still healthy.
 
In a class situation where you’re together, relating to each other, and accustomed to certain ways of moving and interacting, it’s going to take a little more mindfulness to protect yourselves and one another. Please give yourselves and others permission to do awkward things to stay safe!😁
 
From what we’ve gathered, it’s the droplets of a person’s exhalation that carry the virus. If you know more, please chime in.

Masks keep your exhalation close to you and others’ exhalation away. Maintaining a distance of 6 feet makes it all the less likely that if your mask isn’t tightly woven enough to prevent exhalation from traveling, the virus’ traveling is minimized. These precautions need to be taken. It will take thinking, going slowly, planning your moves in the beginning, and being very much in the 1st Circle! You’ll learn about that in class!
 
Regarding class time, please wear your mask 100% of the time that you’re not in the water and 100% of the time that you’re seeing anyone in the class.  That means your bag is at the pool edge and once you get into the water, you put your mask in your bag. You put it back on before you get out. Please discuss this in class at the beginning and see if you agree that this sounds like a reasonable practice.
 
When in the pool, please maintain at least 6 feet distance. Our intention is that each of you has a 6 foot square block of water to float in, and a 6 foot buffer between your square and the next person’s. We only take 4 in a class  so there is ample space. This is our fourth time teaching in-person during Covid, so this is still a careful experiment. So far, so good.
 
When you want to go from here to there, you’ll need more than 6 feet, so you’ll have to plan that out. Leave a buffer zone between your personal pool space zone and the next person’s. 
 
Any exhalation that falls to your hands or body or the water will be sanitized by the chlorine rather than reaching someone else, if you’re far enough apart.
 
Being outdoors helps droplets disperse rather than all falling in one spot or accumulating in a small area. That’s why our classes are outdoors. 
 
The instructor is there to teach you the system and the steps, and oversee that each of you is learning them and having fun. She will help you physically if there’s an emergency, of course. But Miracle Swimming is about preventing emergencies because each of you is learning how to stay in the 1st Circle (calm) all the time in the water. You do new things when you’re so in your body doing X that it automatically emerges as X+1. 
 
There has to be a way to continue becoming confident in deep water and learning to swim during Covid and we believe we’ve got it. Please see what it takes to make this work for you and report back to your instructor and me. We look forward to your fun and success… and hearing about it!

Learning without an instructor closeby: float and get up when you want to with our float bar and straps. Patent pending.

What Is the Course?

“Everything you always wanted to know that no one
  ever told you!”

   Every question you have is answered.

◈ How can I be comfortable all the time?
◈ Why do I sink?
◈ When will I stop hating to put my face in?
◈ How can I feel okay letting go of the wall?
◈ Why haven’t I been able to learn before?
◈ Is there hope for me? Can I learn?
◈ Is it really possible to enjoy myself in deep water?

It is literally impossible to fail if you try our system. Go at your own pace. We will never push you. We spend time in deep water in the Beginning course. Being peaceful in it usually takes the Next Step course.

In Person: Start where you are today and skip no steps. This course is all the dry-land sessions and shallow water skills you need, including essential skills not taught elsewhere. Begin to learn ease in the deep by relying on yourself for your safety, rather than the bottom or the side. The photo at the left portrays learning during Covid. Each student will learn a portion of his/her confidence at our new Float Bars, as pictured. You are connected securely to the bar so you don’t need a spotter. These allow social distancing, yet allow you to learn the early skills comfortably.

8 three-hour classes of one-hour on land, followed by two-hours in warm water. Register 120 days, or more, in advance to receive a discount of $50 on the in-person course. (Deducted when your balance is paid.)

These two students overcame fear in five days

We proved that an instructor does not have to be within 6 feet of students for breakthroughs of this magnitude to happen in 5 days. There is more to learn, but what a great beginning!
