This is a learn to swim curriculum that places an emphasis on the learner’s natural relationship with the water and uses the qualities of that relationship as one’s primary safety device creating a life-long love of the water. Through Breath, Buoyancy, and Balance we connect our natural core body balance with the aquatic environment which is key. Being able to submerge, release air, surface at the interface, and accept air rhythmically is the secret to being in harmony with the water. This needs to be experienced and taught before full propulsion. A student learns to focus on mastering the water’s natural forces to influence brain development and aquatic comfort. From these postures, students can first learn to manage aquatic forces for safety and then propulsion.
