Why Take Miracle Swimming Online?

Because it works and you can stay home.
Since Hazel lives in Germany and it was Covid (March, 2020), she took the online Essentials 1 course.

Now it’s recorded and you can take it at your leisure.

Overcoming fear is about more than “arms and legs.” A significant part—if not all—of fear is about our beliefs, memories and (mis)understanding. Our online courses do poetic justice to the softest aspects of learning to swim. Learn remarkable material at home in Essentials 1 Online.

Our online course students had creative ideas. Of course you can learn to float in an inflatable kiddie pool!

Essentials 1 Course Online

When you think about being in the middle of a deep pool, how do you feel?

◈ Does your heart speed up?
◈ Do you feel tense?

Just as you can feel fearful without the water, you can overcome fear without water, too.  We proved it.

$199 for 8 recorded lessons, about 22 hours of rich conversation and learning by visualization

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

It is literally impossible to fail if you try our system.

There’s key information you must have to overcome fear and learn to swim. It’s covered in our online course. You’ve already tried going to the pool to learn. Something more is essential. Sign up for it!

A dry-land component has always been a strength of our in-person courses. In the online course, you’ll learn from the same conversations and points made in our in-person Essentials 1 course. They teach precisely what you need to know, filling in the gaps of what’s been missing.

You’ll also learn skills by visualization in each session. To many people, it’s astonishing. Ask all your questions and get satisfying answers.

Though you will need to prove the learning to yourself in the water, you can get started and make remarkable progress online. It doesn’t produce the exact same results as the in-person course, but accomplishes up to half of what you would learn in the in-person course. Get started at home.

"My swimming changed in an online course."​


“…But there it happened: I did a back float without holding on! And a front float! Without holding on! So I thought why stop here – let’s do back float – unfloat – front float and the other way round. And I did!!! I was amazed at myself. Could this really be happening? I am so proud of myself!”

Mary Ellen


Mary Ellen: “I”m glad to know there’s another way to learn that doesn’t involve banging my head against the wall.”
