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 that safety in deep water must be developed as part of learning to swim. Strokes do not make a person safe in deep water.

A student must be comfortable in deep water to learn to swim: to be safe.

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

A licensed Miracle Swimming Instructor can bring virtually any  afraid adult to comfort in deep water. Fear is the #1 obstacle to learning to swim (once someone has access to a pool/body of water). Panic is most likely the main cause of drowning in adults.

What Is the Miracle Swimming Mindfulness Instructor Training?

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

For over one hundred years, swimming lessons in the U.S. have focussed on 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.

“Infallible.” —J.S. , MrSw graduate, New York City

“This deserves the Nobel Prize.” —Several graduates

These steps are subject to modification. The training licensed 65 instructors between 2004 and 2018. It’s currently being rebuilt and is ready to begin online.

Aquatic Learning Station
The Float Bars of the Aquatic Learning Station pictured above are not part of the system. However, they do speed up learning by providing each student with a safe learning station, freeing the instructor to be with other students and to oversee a class.

The most common statement made by graduates of this instructor training is, “This makes sense. Why haven’t we always done it this way?”

Holding hands makes jumping in less scary.

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 transform your perspective. Start using them in your teaching.

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 that prepares you to teach in a new way. It is a transformation.
