Instructor Training

Secure learning with the instructor 6 feet away

Be Invincible.

To be a Miracle Swimming Instructor, a teacher must be not only experienced, gentle and kind; she or he must also recognize or be willing to learn that confidence must be developed before skills.

A student must be comfortable to learn to swim.

Comfort is the goal of every single moment of our 5 core courses; the goal is never a physical skill.

Learning to swim is becoming comfortable in water over one’s head.

A licensed Miracle Swimming Instructor can solve virtually any learning problem of an afraid student. Fear is the #1 obstacle to learning to swim (once someone has access to the pool).

What Is the Miracle Swimming Mindfulness Instructor Training?

It’s a refreshing, empowering and healing correction of the information taught in traditional lessons to afraid adults. It’s a positive, completely new system of teaching that cannot fail.

For over one hundred years, swimming lessons in the U.S. have been about learning strokes. Since the late 1980s, they have emphasized strokes almost to the exclusion of safety.

The secret to successful swimming lessons for adults who are afraid—half of adults— is not tips on swimming technique or mechanics. It’s presence of mind.

When you understand the system of The 5 Circles, you will supercharge your power as a teacher. It has never failed.

“It cannot and does not fail.”

How to Begin

Start learning the Miracle Swimming way with these primers: the book, Conquer Your Fear of Water, A Revolutionary Way to Learn to Swim Without Ever Feeling Afraid, the video, The Miracle Swimmer, and the podcast, The Learn to Swim Show.

They will change your perspective. Start to use them in your teaching. You will have started to see what needs changing. Then it’s time to learn to be trained with Miracle Swimming Instructor information.

When you digest these resources, you’ll know whether you want to commit to the Miracle Swimming Instructor Training (Miracle Swimming Mindfulness Instructor Training). The training teaches you how to teach Miracle Swimming. Whereas the products above are aimed at the student, the training is aimed at the instructor. It’s a higher perch and it prepares you to teach in new ways. It is a transformation.
