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

After four swim lessons at the Y I knew that I would never learn how to swim if I used their methods. They were not addressing my fear of water. In my frustration, I got on the Internet and discovered the Transpersonal Swimming Institute's web page. Hooray! There it was, an answer to my prayers.
After watching your video, I found that I actually liked the feeling of the water holding me up. It felt relaxing. Your video demonstrates that people float at different levels. My instructor at the Y had taught us that floating perfectly horizontally was the only correct way. Floating at my natural level enabled me to relax in the water for the first time. Plus, it's reassuring knowing that my body's fat content is somewhat average!
What I achieved after watching the video twice is just short of miraculous. In two weeks I went from being a non-swimmer to a floater to an actual swimmer. The video gave me information on how to conquer my fear of water but also provided me with the confidence to try.
I think most non-swimmers believe that nearly everyone else in the world knows how to swim except for them. I certainly did. Knowing how to swim contributes to a sense of normalcy, self-assurance and self-reliance. For anyone that loves being in water (and I always have), knowing how to swim adds a dimension to life that seems unattainable for non-swimmers.
Thank you again. Sharry
I finally got it after practising the floating for a few weeks!
Now I can swim over the deep water of the swimming pool with no fear, even though I can breast stroke for only 20 feet.
I have been trying to learn swimming since I was 20. After 13 years, I succeeded thanks to this miracle video. Now I need to improve the mechanics to swim further :-) ......
swimming lesson. This was my 7th session in the pool, I have a very good
instructor. However,after I watched your video I realized that most of the times I was "pushing myself" - so "I was not there". This time I tried to "be there" - tried to act in a conscious way and this made a great difference, my coach could not believe the progress I made.
Also I should say that you taught me a great way in practicing to float or be in water. I used the stairs of the pool to stay in deep water, to float within deep water as you show in the video. This helped me a lot.
I want to thank you for both instructing me and for your support from such a long distance. This means a lot to me.
