Who Takes Essentials 1 SloMo?

SloMo refers to “slow motion.” We don’t mean that literally. And we don’t mean you’re slow! This course was formerly called Ultra Beginning.

◈ Take Essentials SloMo if you want to go extra slowly as you learn. This course works infallibly for the MOST afraid students.

◈ You want to learn in a setting that makes it inevitable that you’ll learn to float.

◈ You want to get your safety from the bottom at first, and then from yourself.

◈ You’ve had a difficult swimming- or water-history.

◈ You know there must be a way to learn that’s not frightening.

◈ You want to be certain that this time you take lessons, you’ll succeed.

Learning to float and stand up

Start at the beginning and skip no steps. We cover all the points and conversations that must be covered in order for you to gain a new understanding of how the water works and how to overcome fear.

Course format: 8 three-hour class sessions of 1 hour on land followed by 2 hours in the pool, customized for you. The “SloMo” course spends more time in the very shallow water to allow time for adjustment and learning. Standard-depth water is available when you’re ready. Learn to put your face in comfortably, float on front and back, “unfloat,” and move through the water.
