Classes on video as seen on NBC's TODAY Show and CNN's Headline News. Want to swim? Afraid to? Believe it or not, you can. Whether or not you have taken swimming lessons before, there's nothing that can stop you from freedom in the water if you start at the beginning and skip no steps. If you're afraid in deep water, you haven't experienced these steps yet.
What is swimming? It's confidence in water. It's not just strokes. Once a person can swim (be confident in water), then he or she can learn strokes easily. Afraid students typically don't learn to swim because they are focused on survival. You can turn that around.
You must be in control to learn to swim. The nuts and bolts of being in control in the water is the key to learning to swim that has freed our 2200 students at Transpersonal Swimming Institute since 1983.
The nuts and bolts are uniquely depicted in this videotape. Watch two unrehearsed classes of afraid students learning the same way you would if you were in class.
Once you're in control, you can learn mechanics. (Strokes are not part of this tape.) This is the answer to reaching your swimming goals. First things first. It cannot and does not fail. Learn to prevent panic: go straight to the heart of the problem of "losing it."
From the Contributor
When you're in the water, are you're thinking, "What if I drown? What if I sink? What if I lose it? What if I can't get a breath? What if I don't reach the wall?" If so, do not expect yourself to learn swimming mechanics: you are close to panic and therefore, not safe.See all Editorial Reviews

In the DVD you learn to get comfortable submerging yourself underwater. You also learn how to find your natural float. Some people float with most of their body on top of the water, some people float with the majority of their body under water and others cannot float at all.
Mellon says that regardless of how you float or do not float, it is okay.
Unfortunately, I am a non-floater, so the only benefit I gained from the DVD is to learn to be more comfortable in the water. This is still a good thing though and I recommend the video to anyone that is scared of being in the water.
People that are not fearful of water will not gain anything from this video. People that are afraid can learn how to submerge themselves at their own pace and also possibly how to front float and back float. That will depened on your body structure/makeup.
I wish Mellon had a school in my State. I would sign up as soon as possible.
like to try some of the methods in the video in my upcoming swimming lessons i think malon takes great intrest in her students she pays attendtion to what the student is doing. and she stays in her game zone if a emergency does occur she would be
right there i hope that my teacher will be like her thanks i am looking forward to more videos or maybe a book
