Learn to swim

The water can be very frightening for some. A bad experience, a careless swimming teacher, watching Channel 7, or maybe just never learning to swim at a young age can all be reasons to stay away from the water. Think of why it might be fun to learn to swim: join your friends and family to splash, play and swim; learn to swim laps and ease pain in joints and muscles; get leaner; go for a boat ride without fear; cool yourself off at the lake, ocean, or pool; take a canoe ride with a friend. Swimming can be a cooling, calming and relaxing time. Many people recovering from an injury turn to the pool; swimming can often help people regain movement in those areas, and help them to heal.  

We start by you getting comfortable in the shallow end of the pool, holding on to the poolside, kicking, walking, and just feeling how the water works, and how it feels. We then go on to learn how to float, blow bubbles, kick, etc. I am in the water with you always. Again, you learn every new skill as you are ready. If you fall in love with swimming, I would recommend joining a Y for a month or 2, where you can practice your new found skills as much as you want to. They offer scholarships if money is an issue.

If you live near the Newton area, please email me if you would like to learn to swim. Info is below. 

Private lessons: Please email me with approximate times and dates for classes. You can sign up for summer or fall now. 2 classes a week is ideal; we don't want you to get waterlogged! By the end of 8 classes, we can see how you are doing, and we can continue or not, as you like. You will definitely feel safe in the water, and be able to navigate in it.
