Introduction, Essentials 1, Freestyle

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

Take it at your leisure. 19 hours in 8 sessions. $199.

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 address the internal 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 Online

“I was able to talk about my fear of water for the first time in my life without feeling ashamed or embarrassed. On the contrary, I felt seen, heard, and taken seriously. That was the beginning of my healing.”

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, 19 hours of rich conversation, transformation, and learning by visualization. This is your swimming tribe. You’ll feel as though you’re in the class— the class asks the same questions you have.

“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 in this course. You’ve already tried going to the pool to learn. Something more is essential. Get 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. Start learning at home. Take your new knowledge to a pool near you.



More people are afraid of the water than I knew…”

"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!” —Hazel

“A lifelong dream of mine was to become a swimmer and be able to swim on a team. But fear and lack of ability kept me from this goal and dream. I felt it was impossible. But two years ago I set a goal for myself that I was going to make this happen for myself somehow. Well, on Thursday night May 13th, 2021 I accomplished that goal and made my dream come true. I just had my first practice with the City of Thornton Masters Swim Team. I can’t believe I’m actually saying this. It was a good practice and I have a good coach. If my future self traveled back in time to May of 2019 and told me that two years from now would be swimming on the Masters Swim Team, I would not have believed it. It was not an easy road, and there were times I wanted to give up on this goal, but I just pushed on. Even the pandemic didn’t stop me, having to do my swim lessons on Zoom with my swim instructor down in Florida. But that is where I made my best progress. I want to give a big shout out to Melon Dash my swim instructor for helping me get to this point. She is the best Adult swim instructor in the country.” Dwayne Kajfosz
