Rose, the woman in the photo above, took the online Essentials 1 course. Before the first session was over, she had googled inflatable kiddie pools and ordered one. That week, it was full of water and she was applying the online course and learning to float. Then she went to friends’ pools. Then she rented a vacation home with a pool so her family would want to go. She spent hours in that pool every day and sent us videos of her progress.
“Despite the course being virtual, I learned more about being in control and being comfortable in water than I ever thought possible. What worked especially well was the discussions and having all my questions answered.”
Start anytime. Take the course at your convenience.
~19 hours. Take the Essentials 1 Online Course at your leisure. Eight sessions of ~2.5 hours comprise all the conversations, points, and questions covered in the 8 dry-land sessions of a regular in-person course. It is a life-changer. Come to understand the vast amount of information that is missing from traditional lessons. This is an actual class of 7 adult students who overcame a significant amount of their fear of water by learning the course content before going to the pool. The recordings are the real online course. Each session provides the must-have conversations plus the basic skills of the Essentials 1 course via visualization.
The course comes with reading material for Miracle Swimming’s Essentials 1 Course.
No equipment is needed other than the ability to play the recording online.
No pool is necessary for the online course. Students ask if they can practice and learn in a back yard pool, an inflatable kiddie pool, or in their bathtub. Yes.
In a regular pool, the tether kit would function as a spotter, someone who is with you to keep you at the wall if you want to let go.
Each video must be downloaded in order to view it in its entirety. Otherwise you’ll see only one hour of it.
The course was recorded and left as-is. Breaks are omitted.
