ABOUT THE BOOK
To learn to swim, you must feel safe.
What doesn't feel safe to you about swimming?
Deep water? Panic? Sinking? Water in your nose? Bumping into someone?
Feeling safe in water leads to success. Correct arm and leg technique is irrelevant to healing fear. Rest and move calmly and freely in shallow, then deep water in the simplest way imaginable. Learn how the water works with your body. Make comfort your top priority.
You don't have to struggle or push yourself to become confident in water. With correct information, healing fear is not frightening. Turn your head around about becoming calm in deep water with an industry disruptor who has been leading adult-learn-to-swim since 1983.
"This book is a master class. My sincere thanks for writing to us in a manner that gave us confidence."
