Do-It-Yourself Learn-to-Float and Learn to Swim!
U.S. Patent #11,331,554

There’s one thing that’s prevented you from learning to float: fear. If you felt safe, what would you try?

Get all the components and instructions from the master of teaching afraid-in-water adults. Learning becomes fun. You’re always within easy reach of safety. The Tether, with the teaching in the book, combine to make you feel safe and be safe.

Have fun slowing down in the water and feeling what’s actually happening: it holds you up. Learn how to put your face in water happily. Use this kit as directed and you cannot possibly fail to learn to float or swim. No pushing, coaxing, or disappointment. The teaching system cannot fail. It’s not tricky or difficult. But it’s different from what you expect.

Learning to float–or sink happily if you’re one of few people who don’t float–is an essential step of learning to swim. After lessons with the Tether, you’ll derive your safety from yourself, not from anything else. When you feel safe, you experience what’s true about water and deep water. It holds you up.

If you’re one of few sinkers, you can learn to be happy and perfectly in control of your safety standing on the bottom and coming back to the surface at will. Overcome fear of water and learn to swim on your own, the fun way. Do this in a pool where others are around. As you read the book, you understand the necessity of going slowly and being present. This awareness removes the possibility of being tangled in the tether. The tether is too short to become entangled, regardless.

How to Succeed
The book gives you the universal steps—every single one—of overcoming fear, learning to float and maneuver in water on front and back calmly, in shallow and deep water. This does not extend to strokes, which are about efficiency, not safety.

Good floats are demonstrated by the student photos above. The diagonal float is normal for someone with lean legs. A horizontal float is just as good. You’re in good company: 149 million adults in the U.S. are afraid in deep water.

To use the Tether: the long strap goes around your waist. The white strap connects to the Aquatic Learning Station, pool ladder or railing. One strap extends or shortens your distance from the Float Bar. Color coded connectors make connections simple. As you follow the instructions and become more confident, expand the Tether to float further away. Pipes fill with water, keeping Aquatic Learning Station on the floor. It drains immediately when removed from pool.

This kit includes:

  • Aquatic Learning Station
  • Tether: three straps
  • how-to book
  • podcast
  • video (streaming)

You’ll need a rubber mallet to assemble the Aquatic Learning Station. Get the ebook, video and podcast immediately upon purchase.

The belt of the tether should be the length that most closely fits your waist. If you would like extra length to be further from the float bar or wall, buy an extra extender. The extra extender is up to four feet long in addition to the three foot extender that comes with the kit.  It is not advisable to order the longest belt to put you further from the mooring, as you would need more hardware on the belt to make it work. Read the book to learn how to use the tether and how to overcome fear and swim.

1. Why do I need the book, video, and podcast?
You need the book and tether. You don’t need the video and podcast, though they add to your overall understanding and comfort. Much common knowledge about learning to swim is incorrect. If you use common knowledge, it’s likely that you’ll follow traditional thinking, skip steps, and become discouraged. At Miracle Swimming, steps are not skipped and success is ensured. Our book, video, and podcast teach you how to learn, feeling safe all the time. No more panic.

The urgency to learn is understandable. However, give yourself a chance and start at the beginning. The book provides every single step an adult needs to learn to swim, from fear in shallow water to freedom in deep water. It doesn’t include strokes—which make swimming efficient but not safe—because strokes are not relevant to overcoming fear or safety. They are relevant to efficiency and speed: the choreography of swimming. The video shows the introduction to an actual course with actual students learning for the first time, and our system’s first teachings: the 5 Circles, lessons of learning to put your face in and the back float. Follow students’ progress over an 8-session / 24 hour course including their first lessons in the deep end. You will see excerpts of two Miracle Swimming courses in action.

Listen to the podcast or read the first 60 pages of the book to get started. Or watch the video before you get into the pool. Read the whole book to learn to swim comfortably in the shallow and deep. You can become safe in deep water fully with the book, tether, and a pool with a ladder or rail or the Float Bar.

2. Your belly should not touch the Aquatic Learning Station when you float on your back. If it does, put the it in shallower water. Or, make it taller.

How can you know in advance if your belly will touch it?
If you’re fairly lean, you will most likely float at a diagonal and your feet will be on the floor, belly below the surface and the bar.
If the top bar of the bar is in 40 inches of water and you’re not as lean, your belly may touch it because you may float horizontally. Just move the Aquatic Learning Station to shallower water.

Height: 40 inches to top of cross bar
Length: 67 inches
Width (including side supports): 81 inches
Width of cross bars: 40 inches
When building the float bar, you may omit the cross bars on the floor: the device will support you.
